Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My girlfriend and I had the most wonderful experience sailing with Giacomo from Santa Margherita Ligure to the Cinque Terre Marine Reserve. Although the cruise is lengthy, the scenery towards the 5 Villages is immaculate and enriched by Giacomo's historical knowledge of the area. The tour take the full day, as going a coming back is roughly 3 hours (in total - 1.5 each way). Venti's team is super, always nice, accommodating and speak perfect English and French (greatly appreciated given it was our first time in Italy and we were a bit scared). A huge bravo and grazi mille to Giacomo and his wonderful crew for making these Ligurian days so special.

We booked the tour in late September and departed from Portofino to explore the coastline around it. We chose the half day in the afternoon and this was more than enough to explore the area and have a ton of swimming spots. The boat is wonderful (not the quickest of all) but perfect to admire the beautiful scenery. Filippo, our guide, was kind, knowledgeable and spoke perfect english. 100% recommended.

A relaxing afternoon onboard a typical wooden boat: the best experience on the Italian riviera. Giacomo, our skipper, was kind and thoughtful and shared load of interesting anecdotes on Portofino and surroundings.

One of the most beautiful experience I’ve ever had, also the team was very professional and explained all details to us. Would definitely do it again. If you compare their boats with other companies, the boat we had was by far superior.

We rented the 2Bar rib for the full day and found a stunning place to visit. The boat is comfortable, spacious and incredibly efficient, comes with a cooler and snorkelling gear - which are a nice perk. The coast is beautiful and although the sea was a bit rough, the guy at check in recommended some good spots to take a break from the with and the sea. All in all a fantastic experience to complete our vacation in Italy.

I would only recommend a half day rental and call ahead and ask about water conditions. Apparently a storm had happened a day or two before and seas were really rough. Wish someone had informed us about this and given us the choice to choose another day as we were in the area for a week and would loved to have gone on a calmer day if given the opportunity. We were told about this before we left with the boat but at this point it was too late. Only used two hours of full day rental and even that was pushing it. Snorkeling was not possible with the kids due to waves and boating wasn’t enjoyable. Asked to cut down to half day when we found out ocean conditions but was told no.
Condition of boat was excellent and person who gave us the boat was very nice.
Has the possibility of being nice but just call ahead to get sea conditions. Also area of boating isn’t huge so don’t really need a full day.

Hi Eric, we are sorry to read your average review. As you may understand, sea conditions do not depend on us, and although the sea conditions had been affected by the storm (happened two days prior), the conditions were still good and MOST IMPORTANTLY safe for you to go out - as many other customers did that same day. In regards to your request of cutting down to half day - that was only requested by you once at the dock (too late - as you said) and also not possible given you had booked and confirmed the full day via Tripadvisor. You weren't told "no" out of bad faith, but because of booking you had made and confirmed to Tripadvisor. Anyways, we were looking forward to reading your review to improve our services and your opinion on our boats, unfortunately weather and sea conditions do not depend on us. All the best.

This was a fun expedition, and we enjoyed it. Our skipper was a sweet young guy and did his best to show us a good time despite some unexpectedly gray weather (and a few drips). His historical knowledge wasn’t extensive, but our Italian is basically zero so all in all we got along just fine. The weather didn’t allow for swimming so we walked around Portofino for a bit instead. We did not go the full two hours, which wasn’t really explained.

It’s important to note that the boat in the picture is not even remotely the one we were given. If you scroll through you can see some images of an inflatable background and this is what we got; the small speedboat version of a Zodiac. The seating area pictured was also nowhere to be found.

There is small print that says other boat types might be used, and this trip is significantly cheaper than other similar tours. Should have known. So, if you’re up for some adventure (literally holding on to side straps while bumping over waves), go for it. If you had something more romantic in mind, this isn’t it.

Also, the drinks didn’t include water and the focaccia was literally given to us in a grocery bag. It was soggy by the time we ate it and not particularly good.

Dear Amy, thank you for taking your time to write the review. Unfortunately we are quite saddened and disappointed with the the average rating. We can understand your frustration regarding the conditions and we are sure our Skipper did his best to try and make your tour and enjoyable experience (ie. taking a tour of Portofino). The focaccia was freshly made to order and kept in the bag to avoid it being soacked by the humidity of the day - you also left the focaccia till after the tour of Portofino (more than half way into the tour) that could be one reason behind it being soggy. The tour did go to the 2hrs, as you departed before 18.30 and came back at 20.20 - the reason behind the 10 minute difference was the storm that was approaching. However, our main concern regards the boat, AS SPECIFIED IN THE LISTING, the boat we are forced to use as of July 18th is our 2Bar62, its photos as well as multiple others are visible on Tripadvisor and on our website. We understand its not the typial ligurian goiter or a more fashionable boat. Anyways, we thank you for your review, and will act upon the feedback received.

We had an amazing half-day tour with Giacomo, onboard the magnificent boat. Could not have asked for more!

Our family of four took the sunset tour with Jack who spoke English. He took us on the coast of the Gulf of Tullio and talked about all the different buildings and historical sights along the way. Jack was kind and took our photos against all the beautiful spots. We had an a bit of extra time at the end of the ride and he asked if we wanted to go anywhere else. My teenage girls said, “Can we go fast down the coast?!!” Jack was accommodating and drove us very fast over the waves which had the girls laughing and enjoying themselves! (Focaccia bread and drinks were provided.)
