Full description
Cinque Terre (5 Villages) is one of Italy's most enchanting destinations. Each of these unforgettable little cities will take your breath away with their gravity-defying dance above the azure waters. Our day trip to these villages suspended on craggy cliffs will give you an unforgettable and fun introduction to the coastal gem! We begin our tour of these UNESCO sites at daybreak with arrival in La Spezia. We then board a train to Riomaggiore, a quaint medieval town dating to the 13th century. The small winding streets of this village known for its wine greet you as we begin our tour, charming houses leaning one against the other as we continue our trek through the cobblestone streets. Next, we'll head over to Manarola, walking the famous "Via dell'Amore" (Path of Love), which you will soon discover is one of the most beautiful routes in all of Italy! Here you are, high above the sea, with lovely mountains and wilderness all around you! We continue on to Monterosso, an ancient fishing village considered the "pearl of the Cinque Terre." Here, we can relax on its lovely beaches and jump into the refreshing crystal sea. Finally, we'll take a boat across to Vernazza, whose natural port has kept it safe from invaders for centuries. The scenery and lifestyle of these five little villages will stand out in your memory, and our tour shows you the best they have to offer!

Really enjoyed this trip, each of the villages were beautiful. You get about 1 hour in each of the villages, maybe a bit more in 1 of them to have a some food and a swim. The trip is well planned out (if the trains are on time). The tour guide was brilliant and gave a bit of information about each village as we arrived there. The boat trip was good but a bit bumpy but fantastic views on the boat. It was especially nice as the villages were a lot less crowded than usual due to the pandemic. Would definitely recommend this trip as a way to see Cinque Terre in 1 day.

We had an amazing experience with get your guide on this day trip. They covered 4 villages and each one better than the previous one. The best one was monteresso in which they gave us maximum time to relax by the beach and have sea side lunch. The guides marco and julliano managed the whole group very well by giving us proper instructions of which train to board and where to meet. They also did headcount of the group whenever changing mode of transport so that no one is left out. The bus was also very comfortable. Our italy vacation would not have been so amazing without this tour to cinque terre. Totally 5 stars for this trip from get your guide.

After our tour the day before with “My Tours” the Cinque Terre tour with Ciao Florence Tours and Travel was disorganized and unprofessional. The tour guide did not display her certification credentials. She did not have a microphone so that we could all hear her. There were times we lost track of her in the crowds. The flag was not displayed high enough for all to see, there was not a colleague following to insure no one was left behind and people were left behind.
