First class, well worth the money. The guide Antonio was very good. He was welcoming, friendly and a very likeable Person. His knowledge and commentary was first class. From the moment we were picked up until we were dropped off 10 hours later, we were treated to a special day. The trip and Cinque Terre is an experience that you must have.

Angelina was a great guide. Larger group than we expected, but everything was good. The lunch was outstanding. Only downside was a few that decided to not make it to the bus in time on one of the stops. We waited 25 mins for them. This put us getting to Pisa after dark. That part was annoying. If you go, be mindful of others!!

Great day out. Our host Angela was brilliant. Nando the driver was fantastic. We also had a great local guide in Siena called Donatella. Definitely recommend.

Great trip. Amazing places. Alessandro was great and explain everything. and the wines were superb

It was a relaxed day trip. I am glad to have booked it.
