Hd lunch at Venassa at restaurant restaurant recommend by driver as "the best". It was OK but not great and he made the reservation for everyone with his name shown on the tables. You wonder weather there's a business connection between the driver and the restaurant

It was a long drive, but certainly worth it. We especially enjoyed
see Carrara and the beautiful marble mountains as we drove by.

Adriano was very informative and pleasant and we recommend
this trip to anyone who, like us, only has time for 1 day to see the
beautiful Cinque Terre area.

This was a wonderful tour, our guide Fabio was entertaining to say the least. He took us to wonderful locations in Cenque Terre gave us some history and made us laugh the entire tour. I would highly recommend this tour and ask for Fabio (aka Al Paccino)

Our guide didn't seem very experienced. He seemed like he was ticking things off of a list and very worried about losing us (there were only 6 of us). He forgot the basic things of tour guiding (i.e. when you drive for 2.5 hours, you make a bathroom stop). We ended up in our first of the three towns (this tour previously took you to five) with 20 minutes because the second driver was a half hour late and six people desperate to find a toilet. The guide encouraged us to just find a bar... we managed to do so, but really didn't get to see the town at all. Overall this trip was rushed, expensive and didn't give a good sense of Cinque Terre. I can not recommend it. Especially since Cinque Terre has now become a cruise and tour nightmare where you can hardly move in these tiny towns.

Very informative driver, spaced out the visits to the villages so we had time to explore on our own. Drove us to a great viewing area for photos.

We covered only 3 of the 5 villages, but it felt much more relaxed and took less time than if we were trying to accomplish 2 more villages and would have been a tiring day. We loved the boat ride to see the villages from the water perspective too!

Same reason as above. Good selection of islands

Guide is not interested in the work, no commentary no info provided on the places we visit. Just a personal driver driving us to the location and give us a time to meet.
