This was a super fun adventure! It was my wife’s first time kayaking and she loved it so don’t be scared if you’re a beginner! The food and wine was wonderful and the kayaking was super fun! Simeon and Manuel taught us about the area and helped make the experience one of our favorites we had while in Italy! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone it was so cool to see the towns from another perspective as well as learn about them in the open water! Where we stopped to have food and drinks was gorgeous, one of my favorite views for sure. They stored our bags for us in a locked locker while we were on our trip which was great. I would recommend also bringing a change of clothes as we were soaked afterwards.
The kayaking trip was amazing! I was a bit intimated at first, because I had very little experience kayaking but, Our guide Walter offered a few tips and we were on our way! Walter had to keep reminding me to just go slow, but once I embraced taking my time, the world around me began to come alive! We saw many large bell jelly fish, and Walter was very knowledgable about the rock formations and the history surrounding Cinque Terry! What an awesome way to take in the spectacular views!
An Awesome Sunset kayak trip! We LOVED it! Great way to take in the beauty of Cinque Terre. Simona and Daniela are excellent guides, and both very kind, heartfelt, and fun people. We felt totally safe in their presence. Thank you guys! Our muscles were "screaming" toward the end (we're 70 & 75), and were offered a "tow", but were glad we muscled through it instead! And by the way, the pesto foccacia and wine were quite yummy!
Giuseppe was incredibly warm-hearted and friendly, showing our group the how-to for kayaking on the open sea, readied our gear and explained everything as we went so we all felt safe and prepared. We did the sunset kayaking tour and it was an incredible scene - the perfect way to spend a few hours in spectacular nature, clear, warm water, perfect for swimming and snorkeling away from all of the crowds. We felt like locals!
One of the highlights of our trip! Lucca was a terrific guide and the weather was perfect! Viewing the coastline as we glided in the blue water was breathtaking. Stopped for a swim and a few photos along the way. Gelato in Vernazza. Perfetto - Grazie Mille!
