My overall excursion was what I expected and very nice. The bus staff was pleasant and helpful. My only issue was that the bus broke down and I was NOT NOTIFIED so I went to Meeting location on time but the bus never showed. I only found out after I called the City Sightseeing office. Paola Seemann, Area Manager, was very helpful in sorting this matter out and I took the tour the next day. A lot of frustration could have been avoided if I would have been notified in advance that the bus broke down two hours before I was to be at pickup point.

Aldo was an amazing guide with a genuine love for nature and the Liguria region. Always helpfull and charming he made an beautiful hike into a really interesting experience. The woods were fresh and relaxing and the viewpoints pretty and the destination, well just look at the pictures of San Fruttuoso.

The trip was great! We did depart about 20 minutes late and arrived back about 30 minutes early so it was closer to a five hour tour instead of six. Otherwise, wonderful experience. So pretty and nice guides!

Wonderful!! Superb day.. The ideal would be to stick to the schedules of arrivals and departures of the cruises to take full advantage of it. Competent guide and fast open-top bus driver well suited!

Wow, a magnificent experience.

The experience is well organized with a transfer to a panoramic point, the walk and lunch were delicious, like our Guide! The return by ferry is also beautiful!
