A lovely trip, fantastic sail into Portovenere, we would do it again.

As above, but we were disappointed with courier Eduardo. He spoke to everyone n the coach going, ignored us on the back seat. It was the same coming back, spoke to the Americans for half an hour etc. Ignored us again.Obviously after big tips but lost ours for his rudeness. We were hurt, please let him know. However his knowledge was good and his organisation. The trip was to die for. Thank you.

Beautiful cinque terre
