Cinque Terre - Unique Activity or dining experience

My daughter, two friends, and I will be in Manarola the first week of May and my daughter's 30th birthday occurs while there. I'd like to surprise her with a special activity...cruise, show.,. tour...memorable meal? I have no idea. If anyone has suggestions, I would love to hear them. Thank you!

Well, I think you need to reconsider what you want to do based on what these five tiny villages can offer. There are no shows, cruises, tours (you can do an organized day tour, but I think your best experience is without a group, and it's easy to see them on your own). These are five very small fishing villages famous for their incredible beauty, seashore, hiking paths, and the nature all around you.

Depending on your budget, chartering a sailboat is a wonderful idea for a special occasion. The boat leaves from nearby Sestri Levante, which is 20 or so mins in train http://www.silentbay.it/en/where.html

A less expensive option located here in Monterosso is the fabulous Angelo's Boat Tours. It's not private, but it's a great way to experience these villages from the sea http://www.angelosboattours.com/

For a memorable meal, I always recommend Miky in Monterosso and Belforte in Vernazza, just ask to get the outside tables with a view.

And another nice unique idea could be to reserve a wine tasting/aperitivo here in Monterosso at Buranco vineyard. It's the only vineyard open to the public that is easily arrived at by foot in the villages, that also serves light food as a snack.
