We had a fantastic and unforgettable full day boat trip from La Spezia to Cinque Terre. The weather was fantastic and we were only 7 people plus our English-speaking skipper, Andrea, on the boat. Everyone spoke English – US and Australia, so the discussions and conversation went happily. Andrea sailed close to all the towns so we could capture the moments with our camera. We anchored at "Monterosso Al Mare", where we went swimming with the fish. Andrea served a light lunch consisting of sardines, Italian sausage, cheese, tomatoes, focaccia bread and wine. There was beer and water ad libitum during the entire sailing trip. On the way back to La Spezia there was time for sunbathing and an extra swim on the approach to La Spezia - it was wonderful. We can only give this full-day boat trip our best recommendations.

lack of friendliness we are 10 on the sailboat and the skiper is not present we do not know what we should do and the swimming leaves something to be desired dangerous and in the middle of no one by pity to review

Wonderful tour. The only negative note is the absence of a guide to illustrate places and tell the history and / or characteristics of the places. I advise
