Coach from Florence to Le Spezia followed by train between villages and then coach from Le Sepzia back to Florence. Tour leaders were Christian and Ato and driver was Fabio. Because you need to get trains between villages you are on a tight schedule however they try to be a flexible as possible. The Tour leaders were very friendly and knowledgeable. Spend time in Manarola, Corniglia with optional lunch @ 15 euros each of seafood plate and pasta with pesto, potato and green beans. Some then walked to Vernazza, while others took train. Then Monterosso al Mare. It was from here we were to catch a boat back to Riomaggiore however the sea was too rough. So back on the train to Riomaggiore which is one of the most photographed villages in the world. Only downside was the length of the tour and time in each town. Might be better option to drop one of the town and allow more time in the other towns but not sure how they would be able to do this.

This tour was amazing. The place is beautiful, breathtaking. I had Ado like tour guide, and he was amazing!! He knew a lot of everything and made it so fun. Unfortunately, the weather was not on our side that day, but he did his best to give the best experience possible. Im not a fan of "tours" in general, but after this time, I'll definitely will book more. If you have the opportunity, book this tour and hope you are lucky and get Ado as the tour guide

I would highly recommend this tour ! Our guides Chris and Ado were very nice, smart and helpful . They gave a lot of extra informations and made sure, everyone feels well and tried to answer all the questions somebody asked. They even went out of their way , so I could hike alone ahead and do my own stuff.I am very glad, I did this tour and I would do it again , because also "Cinque Terre " is a beautiful place !

I had Ado as a guide for this tour and he was absolutely fantastic. Hands down the best tour I have ever done. Ado has so much knowledge of the history of all the places we passed by and visited and he shares it all in a way that is interesting and engaging. Would definitely recommend.

Luciana was the perfect Hostess Nothing was a problem The weather provided a perfect day
