This tour was wonderful! We had an amazing time and we had Sarah was wonderful and gave us enough time at each village. She coordinated all of our visits to the villages by ferry boat and train perfectly. It was an incredible experience!
Wonderful tour! Amelia was fantastic. She easily catered the tour to our group of 8 people ranging in age from 24 to 82. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. We will certainly be booking another tour with Amelia when visiting the area again.
Wonderful trip. Our guide Luca showed us around and explained the beautiful Cinque Terre villages. He was prompt, informative, friendly and really made the trip the best day on our European vacation. We would definitely recommend Viator and this tour of the Cinque Terre.
