Our guide, Luca Martinelli of Let’s Andiamo was wonderful!!! He had such a wealth of knowledge of the Tuscan region, Italian history, politics - you name it - he knew it!! He made the time fly. Wonderful trip. Highly recommend this tour with Luca!!! My kids loved their time with him too!!
Leandro was a great guide providing insight and interesting information throughout the day in great English so thanks to him.
We truely recommend this trip and were lucky enough to enjoy perfect sunny weather and sea conditions for the boat trip - this is the best way to view the sights. The villages are really beautiful - a good tip would be to skip lunch at a sit down place and catch a bite when exploring - we would chose this option to have more time to browse. Monterossa old part and Manorola were our personal favourites
Our day trip to Cinque Terre was wonderful. We were 6 ladies from Texas that had never been to Italy and Marco was an excellent guide, a perfect gentleman and took care of all of our needs. He helped us with train tickets and made reservations for us at a wonderful restaurant with a breath taking view. I would have loved to spend more time in Cinque Terre but this was a great first look with hopes to return.
I would highly recommend this tour.
Marco was excellent! Right on time to pick us up and a joy to be with for the day. Encouraged us to take the ferry ride and then made us lunch reservations at a great place. We took the train and met him in a different village on the way out. Then on the way back to Florence he suggested we stop in the town of Lucca which was very interesting and an extra surprise. Strongly promote this private day trip from Florence!
Wonderful tour with a great guide! Super gorgeous sights, great walks, a chance to swim for my kiddos!! It was super crowded is the only downside. I would never attempt this without a guide and having a private tour made getting around much easier! If we had a large group it would have been difficult
The trip to Cinque Terre was seamless and enjoyable. Rubens was very friendly and helpful. He gave us tips for which towns to visit and made reservations for us at lunch. He was very flexible both in timing and selecting our preferred destinations. We did not feel time pressured given that we only visited 3 towns 4 or 5 would be pointless because you would not have enough time to enjoy. We finished our trip with a stop in Pisa. Rubens was patient as we ran a bit late but he was very customer oriented, which we appreciated. The only think I would change is that, while Rubens is generally knowledgeable, he is not a licensed tour guide and does not have the deeper, historical knowledge of a guide. For a trip to Cinque Terre, that is fine but keep that in mind if you are wanting to dive more deeply into historical or cultural aspects.
Luca was our tour guide and he was absolutely fantastic. He was knowledgeable, friendly and very accommodating. Although we have been to Italy many times, this was our first trip to Cinque Terre and it was all that we thought it would be and much more. The views are breathtaking, the people were kind, the food was amazing, and again Luca made it worthwhile. A must see with the best guide!!
My brothers and I took a tour with Rubens on July 6. The tour was the highlight of our trip to Italy. We could not have asked for a more perfect guide. Rubens was extremely easy going, and after a few hectic days in Rome in Florence, it was nice to have a relaxing trip on the coast. Rubens catered our trip to the activities we were the most interested in. We ended up choosing the trekking and ferry option, which was very scenic. Rubens' English was excellent, and he informed us throughout the drive of the significance of the areas we traveled through. Rubens also booked us a table for lunch at a restaurant on the water. The seafood was fresh, and we were immediately seated at our table. Outside of the sites, the tour was very enjoyable because Rubens gave us a one on one perspective of Italy from an Italian. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to visit Cinque Terre. We had so much fun!
