While everything was punctual, well organized & ran smoothly (with the exception of 1 TrenItalia service), I think there should be a clearer description/definition of how much walking, particularly up some fairly steep areas is involved in this trip. It was a very nice excursion but to see all 5 villages means it’s a really long, tiring day. You are all part of a group that has meeting times so that we can see everything but that means sometimes, some people are just exhausted due to this fast pace.

Ado and Marco were the nicest and most knowledgeable guides. They both made the trip so much more memorable. Only cause of them I gave the trip 5 stars.

It was amazing! Everything went smoothly, guides were a wealth of information! (Especially Chris)

Visit excellent except for the one hour delay of the train at the end of a long day

amazing full packed day, great way to see the 5 villages of cinque terre.
