What people are saying about Cinque Terre

Very pleasant boat tour. The crew is very nice and the guide speaks perfect French in addition to being super nice! During the stops in Porto Vénère or Vernazza we have the choice to go for a solo walk or to follow the group for the guided tour. These two villages are superb. Without the boat tour I would not have gone to venerated port so I am delighted because it is really a must !!

Absolutely pleasant visit, despite the not so calm sea. Our guide (Cristian) was really nice and engaging. The tour itself is beautiful and with the right timing. I personally recommend it.

It's a nice relaxing tour. Vernazza is beautiful. You have time to see the town, eat, relax and even have a swim. These small towns get reall crowded if I need to put anything negativo.
