What people are saying about Cinque Terre

Our tour guide, Martha, was wonderful. She informed us about the history and activities that are going on in the different regions that we visited. It was a very organized tour. She was punctual and very well planned with notes for her clients. Highly recommend the tour. Thank you Martha for such a great experience.

Exactly as described: nice boat driver, fast boat, good atmosphere on board (with about 12 people), water for free, a few interesting explanations in English, a swim in the sea, a 45min. stay in a village. Return and sunburn ! 8-) Make sure you wear a hat and sunscreen. I would do it again and again.

Highly recommended, super friendly driver of the boat and wonderful summer music. It is very nice to first view the cinque terre from this side and then to go to one or more of the villages yourself. And with very warm weather it is very nice to sit on the speedboat with a nice fresh breeze!

Great value for money trip, the company was very well organised and our lady 'Captain' couldn't have been more charming. A delightful 4 hours, wonderful close up views of the cinque terre topped off with a lovely cool swim off the boat. Thank you!

Martha was an amazing guide! She answered all of our questions and she provided us with good information at every place. I recommend this activity 100%
