What people are saying about La Spezia

It was an amazing trip to cinq terre, it really is a magical place. I highly recommend it. Roberto was extremely friendly and super helpful throughout the whole trip. Clearly super knowledgeable too! The time in my view was just enough to see the different villages, but we ended up staying a bit more in the second one and meet with the group afterwards. Just be mindful that the standard price doesn’t include the train tickets and there is only one train per hour. When we got to the train station there was a line of people to buy tickets and we only had ten minutes to the next train. It was nerve-racking but we made it. So my advice would be to buy the daily ticket beforehand. Enjoy your time!

This tour offered the transportation to get to both Florence and Pisa from our cruise ship. They included a description of the area as we went by and provided maps and a suggested itinerary to tour the sites. They escorted us between the bus parking area and the start of the walking tours and made it clear how much time we had and what time we needed to start back. At a reasonable price, they made our visit very enjoyable at a cost comparable to using taxies and trains to do it on our own. With a guaranteed ship return, it was a perfect choice.

it was awesome, costantino guide and mike who drove, hats off, thanks to both of them for being such professionals. specially costantino who provided so much of info and at then same time was humorous, i would love to have trip with mike and costantino again when in Florence.. :)

Actually a transfer from cruise to florence and Pisa. Mostly on our own but we wanted to be independent. Very comfortable double decker bus with free wifi! That was a first on any of our cruise bus excursions. Nice guide and watched out for everyone to get back on time to ship.

Everything is very good, they adjust very well to the schedule, it's practically for taking the photo and that's why there's a lot to see and little time... in general, everything's fine...
