Amazing trip around the other parts of La Spezia not including the cinque terre! Was nice to hop on and off the boat and explore the smaller villages as well as swim in the sea! Great music and vibes on the boat and a lovely way to spend the afternoon!

It was a wonderful experience and felt like a luxury trip on the boat with Jonathon. I would recommend to take this tour in morning as you will get to swim in crystal clear water and enjoy the sunrise at the same time.

The excursion was amazing, we did the both (because we enjoy so much the first that we decided to retake the one for sunset) It was amazing, the capitain his so cool !!! Absolutely stunning

So recommend this personal experience. Loved having the boat almost to ourselves!

Most enjoyable activity being on the water fabulous
