Had a wonderful day at Cinque Terre. Such a picturesque and charming location. Arriving on the ferry for each town added to the impact. Luigi was a very personable and friendly guide. He recommended restaurants and shops that enhanced the experience.

Magical Cinque Terra.
Carl_V, Apr 2024
Such a wonderful day exploring Cinque Terra. Our guides Simona and Luigi were fabulous! Knowledgeable and entertaining throughout the day. Enough time also to explore a little on your own. Highly recommended.
A magical day.

Had the most fabulous day. Weather gods were kind to us and the rain stayed away. Luigi is an absolute gem and looked after us so well. Can't remember the drivers name but he was wonderful too. Thank you for a wonderful experience. Shall treasure the memories.
WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE … Viator and its guides were amazing as were the sights of Cinque Terre. Definitely recommend!

Great guide and well organized. Interesting sights with some unstructured time which was just enough.
One of the best tours
Don_G, Oct 2023
We had great weather, the ferries were running, and a great guide in Luigi! The cinque terra villages are very picturesque and worth seeing. Avoid going on Saturday, as more crowded. Despite the crowds , we had a great day from start to finish. We liked it better than the Amalfi coast.
Captivating Cinque Terre tour under time pressure made possible by Luigi and driver.

Luigi is knowledgeable and kind enough to point out to me specific places to head to especially places to get the best focaccia, gelato and seafoods. Yes it's a tour that's schedules and on time departures on each villages so that we get opportunities to visit the four villages. We had to stick to the time table because there were thick of crowds and cruise ship tourists by thousands were a bit too much creating chaos. Choosing to be a part of the tour is smart having our own coach no need to ride the overcrowded train. The ferry ride is always full but organized. Overall, I'm glad I chose Viator once more. They're reliable, honest and helpful staff. I appreciate so much the communication by email to make sure the tour is not cancelled prior to the date. I do hesitate to choose Viator! Cinque Terre is absolutely another amazing place in Italy. I still be back.

Visiting all of the towns in Cinque Terra. Only thing is that we thought we would be a group of us on a boat, not the ferry. You should make it clearer in your description. The tour guides were very good.
Incredible Cinque de Terre
MiguelA_R, Aug 2023
Conque Terre Is icredible and our tour guide, Luiggi, was amazing. The villages are great, the beaches amazing and the tour is well organized.
Beautiful places in glorious weather.
Judith_L, Jul 2023
We had a lovely day with Luigi and the small group on the Cinque Terra tour. The minibus journeys, ferry trips and time in the villages were all well-planned. Luigi did a great job in telling us about places to go and food and drink to enjoy, then leaving us enough time to explore and enjoy the villages on our own. Thank you for a really enjoyable trip.
Beautiful experience

Romina was patient and accommodating of our wishes and customized the your to our wants. Stefan was a great driver and shared a lot of regional history on the way there and let us all sleep on the way back:)

Our tour guide Luigi was fantastic, went out of his way to take us for specifically requested items. Small group, nice highlighted tour!
Wish we took other options.
Colin_W, Jun 2023
Have to say we feel like we picked the wrong tour here. In a day of 8hrs we saw three towns and spent a total of 2.5hrs between all three. The tour is basically a bus ride & a couple of public ferry rides which to be honest we could have done ourselves and a much smaller cost. The towns were great, the scenery from the ferries was great but we had such little time at each place to really enjoy it. In each communication we had from the tour operator we were reminded of the need to be punctual yet we seemed to lose time at every stop which contributed to the reduced times in each town. Overall we got off the bus at the end of the day feeling that we really didn’t get the value for money particularly given recent great tours we’ve with Viator..
Cinque Terre!

The day your to Cinque Terre was lovely. Smoothly went to each town with Luigi!….. Very relaxed and well done.
A colourful day
Ailsa_G, May 2023
We had an excellent day in Cinque Terre with Luigi, a small group made it easy to see as much as possible in this busy day. Luigi gave us good, interesting information about the whoile region before we caught the ferry at the first town. He gave us good advice regarding the great food available in each town and the best sites for photos. We would recommend this tour for people who have limited time and want to see a beautiful part of Italy.
First class tour
Diane_M, May 2023
This was a 60th birthday treat for my husband and it certainly didn't disappoint, it is a tour well worth doing, we visited at the end of April and it was busy but not so much that it took away from the day, but I can imagine in the height of the season may be a different story. If you have never visited the Cinque Terre before it is definitely worth doing and gives a good insight to the picturesque villages. We were fortunate to be able to visit them by boat and Luigi our tour guide was first class providing just the right amount of information and his knowledge on t best photo view points, where to get best local produce and what to try, especially the focacia, icecream, pasta was invaluable. We had just the right amount of time at each place, never felt rushed. Our journey via mini bus to and from Cinque Terre was comfortable thanks to our driver Alessandro who together with Luigi made the whole day a very enjoyable experience. A big thank you to both Luigi and Alessandro.
Beautiful tour
Joel_S, Apr 2023
Good tour, saw what we wanted to see. Great if you want to make a short day trip. Have the white wine and calamari
Very good tour
Leif_N, Apr 2023
Good tour guide. Excellent trip. Spoke English well. There was a misunderstanding to what was included and not included. When I pointed out that train and boat fares were included he apologized after having talked to the tour office. Leif Nielsen
Good balance of guided and free time
Taryn_F, Oct 2022
This is such an efficient way to see cinque terra. Guide is great and full of tips to make the most of your time. We had an 8yo and he loved it - good combo of guided and free time.
A Great Way to Spend a Day
Jerry_N, Oct 2022
We had a great time seeing the towns and coastline of Cinque Terre. Luigi was an excellent guide and made the trip a lot of fun. Each town we visited was very special and there were some interesting sights on the way to and from Pisa as well. I only wish that the tour description was a little clearer. For example, what kind of a boat is being used? What kind of clothing (will there be swimming? for example?)? What about meals?
Picture perfect Cinque Terra
Laurie, Oct 2022
Great guide. Very knowledgeable about the area and food. Beautiful day and cities. We have been there before and enjoyed seeing it again. The tour was as advertised.
