What an amazing experience, Addo and his colleague (unfortunately I can’t recall his name) were amazing, literally the best tour guides I’ve had in my life. They were so knowledgeable on everything, there was not a single question they could not answer. They were perfectly in sync the whole time when the group had to move from one location to another. When we used the trains they always knew where everyone was and made sure everyone knew when to get on and off the trains. Their communication were very clear and you knew exactly what needed to happen all the time. 10/10 for them. Would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see Cinque Terre. Truly exceptional.

My family (2 adults + 11y/o) enjoyed the hike immensely followed by a yummy gelato. Ado and Chris were really engaging and fun. We missed seeing Monterroso as the train from La Spezia was delayed.

Ado and Chris were amazing and knowledgeable hosts. My husband and I had never been on an organised tour before and they made it so easy and enjoyable.

packed day, but we were still given free time! our guide Alice was super nice

The best tour I had during my trip! Very well organized.
