What people are saying about Portofino

The tour would start at 09:30 in Gênova but started only at 10:30 because a group was coming from Milan and nobody told me that.So beyond I needed to wait for 1 hour, I lose 1 hour of the tour in Gênova citycenter. The guide did the tour almost running. We didn't have the oportunity to get in the san Lorenzo catedral. After that the tour was more calm because we took boats to Portofino. I really want to say that the get your guide's customer service was really good trying to help the situation with the guide (that was late). Also I have to say that the guide (english speakers) was not friendly with most of the group.

What an experience for all our family

Thank you so very much to our guide for helping our nervous girl manage to see all the fish she was so eager to see, for being patient and accommodating with the board - Mum appreciates it too. Our son has Autism and one daughter has a medical condition that causes fatigue - to be able to do this activity as a family of 5 was incredible for us.
