The day was a wonderful part of our trip to Switzerland and Italy. Our guide, Yaris, was friendly and knowledgeable handled all details including ferry tickets and a lunch reservation in Vernazza. We were pleased with every aspect of the tour. If we were to do it again, we would have taken a shorter lunch break (grabbed pizza or panini) and used that extra time for exploring the villages.

Was very well organised, smooth journey. Would have preferred a bit more time spent at each town with the guide explaining more detail/history as we walked the town. Since it was summer, and daylight longer, could have used this to the advantage of the tour.

Meet up in Florence was seamless and on time. Two vehicles carrying 7-8 passengers each. Our driver, Claudio, was very personable and knowledgeable, pointing out places of interest along our drive to Cinque Terre. Directions given to us at our last stop on where to meet up given by the driver of the 2nd vehicle were vague and one couple in our vehicle got lost, causing us to have to wait some time until they were able to find us. Directions should have been more clear. All of us asked repeatedly where we were to meet and kept getting the same answer, "just follow the road, you can't miss it". We were all confused. There are actually 2 roads, both leading to the same place after a very lengthy walk up the hill. Had we been told there would be a long walk uphill until it dead ended, we would have had a better idea whether or not we were headed the right way. As it happened the couple kept thinking they were going the wrong way and doubled back a couple of times until finally finding us. If you are prone to getting car sick, this is probably not the tour for you. The towns are charming and picturesque. Wine tasting along the way was a nice break.

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.
