    The kayak tour is amazing. We did a typical boat tour of the cinque terra as well, but the Kayak tour is great because you go at a slower pace and you can get much closer to the cliffs and caves. Manuel was a great host, and very knowledgeable of the local area. I recommend bringing nothing but water shoes/sandals so you can climb on the rocks in a small pool to enjoy focaccia and wine. Don’t bring phones or cameras as you will get more wet than you think. The hosts have a storage facility at the meeting point where you can keep your valuables.

    This Kayak Tour was so much fun and easily suitable for anyone who has never been in a kayak before. There is a quick induction into the basics of moving the kayak and off you go. Daniele had a number of spots he stopped at and pointed out with information on culinary or historical backgrounds which was fantastic. The wine was served in a natural pool which you could float in if you were not fussed to get your clothes wet or chose to kayak in bathers - which is easily the best option. The entire tour was fun, enjoyable and definitely a good change from the usual sunset cruises on boats, plus you’re pretty much the only ones out there, unlike the cruises we have seen. I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see the Cinque Terre from the water in a bit of a different way!

    The tour was wonderful, kayaking at your own pace along the cliffs from Monterosso to Vernazza. Our guide, Eduardo, was full of information, both about the history and the environment around us. We saw a lovely little waterfall and a bunch of caves, and went inside one that was marvelous! Definitely recommend, it’s great to do on a hot day, and early on in your trip, since Eduardo had some great tips on what to see and do next. All in all, a great experience thanks to a great guide and a phenomenal environment.
