A very nice tour that I can only recommend to everyone. Our guide (Luca) took good care of the group and told a lot. In the individual villages you had enough free time to explore them a little and take nice pictures. The boat trip was a wonderful conclusion, but a bit too long for my taste at 1 1/2 hours.

I can only recommend the tour to you. Clique Terre is a must-see. But you can save yourself the food and go yourself. The food was okay, but there was no sea view or if you sit outside at the end of the street you can see some water. The guide always ran very quickly and since we were a very large group, you had to be very careful not to get lost. Who after free time goes back on the train and went to the next village. We all took care of each other. Since a couple over 70 had real difficulties to come along. Since it suddenly had to go fast where it was going to and there are many steps. You don't get a lot of information about Clique Terre either, unfortunately you have to find out something yourself or drill with the guide. Oh, and don't forget to take your swim gear with you. The beaches are beautiful there and I went swimming twice. Bottom line makes the tour!

Cinque Terre was simply mesmerizing. The guide on the way there was both driving and talking (not as loud), and was a bit harder to understand, but as the tour proceeded he showed up to be quite caring and respectful of the group pace and speed. Also quite friendly and never hesitated to explain anything at his reach. Really enjoyed it. Only part I didn't like was on the way back, had to climb the hill to the van by foot, under the heavy sun and sweating like crazy, but I understand that it was somewhat necessary.
