Amazing trip in a private vehicle that was perfect for our family with kids aged 10 and 13. We were picked up on time with some great information all along the trip about the history and sights. We had a fantastic lunch where we had a reservation placed for us and a wonderful visit to Pisa on the return. I would highly recommend families consider this option vs doing it yourself. Really good value for money and the owner of the company was the guide which was a nice touch.

The 1/2 day hike from Manarola to Corniglia was amazing. Andrea the guide was wonderful .. He was informative and interesting and gave an in-depth history of the region .. what’s grown there as well as how the people lived their lives over the centuries. His love of nature will enhance your hiking experience. This was truly a memorable hike thanks to Andrea!’

It was a great experience to have lunch with Danniela and her husband. She explained to us how the regional recipes are made. We could watch in the kitchen and eat together at the table. Nice experience!

I gave the experience to my mom and she was very happy, she found herself very well both with the guys who took her on the boat ride and with regard to the aperitif, all perfect, thank you!

Exceptional tour with spectacular views of all the cinque terre. Our tour guide Lorenzo was informative and fun! A must do when visiting the cinque terre region!
