Our tour was amazing! Our guide Alberto was super nice and helpful, he gave a lot of very good info about each city. We had enough time in each city to see it all and it was fun exploring each city on our own! So relaxing and beautiful! We came at the perfect time of year in early Dec and there were no crowds, in fact in one of the cities we were the only people there it seemed, it was so quiet and peaceful! Loved seeing all of the colorful houses and walking the winding streets! We would do this again hands down. Such a lovely day!

Such a well-organized trip that hits 4 of the 5 towns. Tabata was a great tour guide. Once we got off the train at each town, she told us the highlights (what to see/do at each place). Then you're on your own to explore. Very efficient way to see such a scenic coastal area. It's very picturesque! I had an amazing time despite the chilly weather and no ferry boat ride. Note that it's a long day with a lot of walking, including a 15-20 min walk from/to bus in La Spezia.

The guides for my tour were Alberto and Ilaria. The tour was very well organized, with enough time in each of the five towns to explore on your own. Cinque Terre lived up to all my expectations. I was also lucky enough to have a great group of people on my tour but that was just an added bonus. This is a must see and if your like me and love taking pictures it’s extremely picturesque.

We had a beautiful weather day and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. I was happy to have a knowledgeable guide, Edgard, to get us to the trains and boats between the towns.
