The kayak tour is amazing. We did a typical boat tour of the cinque terra as well, but the Kayak tour is great because you go at a slower pace and you can get much closer to the cliffs and caves. Manuel was a great host, and very knowledgeable of the local area. I recommend bringing nothing but water shoes/sandals so you can climb on the rocks in a small pool to enjoy focaccia and wine. Don’t bring phones or cameras as you will get more wet than you think. The hosts have a storage facility at the meeting point where you can keep your valuables.

This was a magical experience seeing the stunning coastline from the water. We had an expert guide with us who talked us through all of the local nature and sea life. I highly recommend this experience especially with children

Wonderful day spent with an amazing guide. The tour itself was fun and a unique way to see the cinque terre. Our guide Sara was the star of the show - 10/10. She was patient, considerate, helpful, fun and made our day.

This experience was a great way to see the coast line of Cinque Terra. It was not too challenging and the guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The wine and focaccia was delicious.

Nothing I would change. Great tour guide; friendly, funny and very knowledgable. Wine and food was great too
