    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 is well structured, we visit some very interesting points of the Cinque Terre from another point of view. I particularly liked the guide, who was able to tell us the history, the peculiarities, the problems and the beauties of the Cinque Terre with a very simple language and through simple and engaging anecdotes and stories of life. I recommend this tour to those who want to get involved, have fun and enjoy the landscape from a different point of view.

    It was a nice trip. However, I found the view from the sea disappointing. The canoeing was also quite tough at sea. You canoe only from Monterosso to Vernazza. We were there for 20 minutes (just enough time for a cup of coffee) and then we canoeed back. Some stops for swimming along the way. They were really necessary because it was hot but also heavy. We had pretty high waves so we couldn't get into a cave (apparently they normally do). We also stopped at a waterfall. This was very small this year because there was little rain last winter and this summer. The guide was a nice girl.
