Emma was an incredible tour guide!! She made sure to always explain the plan for each place, was very clear about where to meet, and helped make sure we all got in and out of the trains to stay together. She truly made this experience amazing with her recommendations for food/restaurants, picture spots, and culture behind everything. The day is long overall but Cinque Terre especially is absolutely worth it, especially for this price!

Our tour guide, Martha, was wonderful. She informed us about the history and activities that are going on in the different regions that we visited. It was a very organized tour. She was punctual and very well planned with notes for her clients. Highly recommend the tour. Thank you Martha for such a great experience.

Very nice experience and led by Dr Jean Francois (June 21) who accompanied us at all times when I lost my bag in Vernazza without neglecting the group either, I would repeat the tour only with him. He gave me the confidence of a professional, congratulations!

Marta is a great guide. Friendly but professional. Knowledgeable about the area and gave us great recommendations for lunch. A lovely taster visit for a longer stay next time. One day does not do it justice!

Absolutely worth the 13 hour day !!! Breathtaking views and our tour leaders were terrific.
