What people are saying about Vernazza

Started out the front of Pisa Centrale, and Lucas was on the ball from the beginning. He was incredibly friendly and welcoming and explained fantastically how the day would proceed. The mini bus was more like an 8 seater taxi, super sleek and very comfortable. Antonio was a class driver, dropped us to our first stop and then collected us at our final destination for a full drive back to Pisa. At each village, either arriving by train or ferry depending on the weather, Lucas explained a little about the history and offered recommendations of what to see/where to go/best insta spots. At this point you are left to wander by yourself for 40mins/1hr. The last stop there is plenty of time for lunch with the longest rest here (2.5hr). The food, the streets, the ocean- everything was beautiful & incredibly worth it. I would point out that these villages are situated against a mountainous backdrop, so there are plenty of steep steps and sloping hills so be careful and wear your hiking shoes!

Great tour! We enjoyed a lot. The driver Emilia was very kind, nice and so enthusiastic. Everything was also corona-proof: disinfection gel, masks. We felt in good hands with her. She knew a lot to tell about the road, the culture of Pisa. Our tour guide Elisabeth in La Cinque Terre was a wonderful and kind woman. She was the perfect guide with a lot of passion for her job. Also the emails were clear, always a directly answer. Super satisfied with this Tour, more two passionate guides and a nice variety between walking, discovering and own relaxation.

Amazing tour and fantastic time in Cinque Terre. We were part of a small group, just 3 including us. Luca our guide was polite and very nice, very knowledgeable and provided us lots of details of history precisely, his recommendations for our own free time were great and made our day perfect. I definitely recommend this tour.

The trip was well organized. In each village we had enough time for a tour. Our guide Luca explained some details to us at the beginning and then gave us free time to explore the villages on our own. Luca took over everything organizational, which led to a very relaxed trip. We would book the tour again.

Very pleasant, dynamic and enthusiastic guide with a lot of humor.
