Well organised and professionally executed experience 👏🇮🇹

      Great way to visit the villages
      This service is only available during certain times of the year. It is an efficient way to see and visit the cinque terre villages (some great views) instead of kicking from one to the other. Schedules are such that you can visit a village and catch the next ferry to go to another village. Tends to be crowded at times. We had some issues with buying tickets on line, but were able to get them at the ticket office in Manorola. Recommended.

    They did not perform the planned activity fir which we paid and we did not see any village of cinque terre.

    Got mail day prior to our departure that only 2 stops will be maid due to rough see conditions.
    Monterosso and Portevenere. We will get refunded 20% because of this change.
    Or full refund if not joining the tour.

    We went on the boat and before onboarding got the question we were aware of having 2 stops iso 3. We confirmed.

    Big was our unpleasant surprise (and other passengers) after the Portovenere stop, we will we dropped at the island across (nothing to do) for 2,5hours to be picked up afterwards and hence no stop in Monterosso.

    After the island pickup went to circle around some other tiny islands and sadly nothing got to see of Cinque Terre villages.

    Lacking proper communication and went on when I explained the situation to their office workers. And the fact we were truly misled. Felt being scammed on the spot while being dropped at the almost deserted island .

    Back and forth on communication first few times and then nothing at all anymore..

    Company changed our planned trip to the next day, but luckily we were still able to go. Good commentary on board. Full marks to Stefano, our English speaking guide, who gave us great information on each of the three towns that we visited, Riomaggiore, Monterosso and Vernazza. He also pointed us to lovely restaurant where we had lunch.

    This is the tour to do to avoid the crowds and have a leisurely time at see. Ramona is just fabulous - really knowledgeable and super helpful.
    our train to La Spezia got canceled on the morning of the trip which meant we couldnt get there. I emailed to ask if we could go on next trip which she accomodated.
    The boat is lovely - loads of space and nicely done out.
    The tour is awesome - and you get plenty of time in each town.
    Just do it !

    We took the train on our first day between towns and decided to take the ferry on the second day. It is a totally different perspective and goes to some towns that the train does not like Port Venere. Very smooth ride, always on time, very clean and friendly service.

    The tour was as described and enough room for all
    Stopped at the three as promised and the journey was fabulous and so was the quick commentary. Staff were lovely and helpful to those struggling to get on and off the boat. Felt safe and well worth the trips.

    The crew was lovely, kind, knowledgeable and welcoming with the travelers. A separate note to mention that they were extremely prompt! The ship was well maintained and clean. The WC was well appreciated! They also provided guide in multiple languages. It was an amazing day because of the crew!

    Excellent way to see 3 of the Cinque Terra villages, much better having a set timetable than risking the ferries which made for a stress free and enjoyable trip. I did check the weather before booking in view of some of the negative reviews.
    The ship and crew were great, it wasn’t full which added to the enjoyment. Saw a couple celebrating 40th anniversary and crew gave them wine and reserved seating which was a lovely touch.
    Instructions were clear and the commentary was significantly better and clearer than other boat trips.

    Directions to ferry were HORRIBLE. The only embarkment info TripAdvisor gave was 200 meters from military and 300 meters from cruise terminal. No boat description. No location map. Nothing.
    It was supposedly done by Viator but they sent us nothing. TripAdvisor sent us meak at best directions No name of the boat or location. We walked back and fort at the marina for an hour and could not find the boat.
    We ended up missing it and wasted a day.

    Dear David, As we told you before, others 110 passengers, reached the boat, others (7 passengers) who were late reched the tour at the first stop of the tour, as we always suggest in this case and we gave you the informations to do the same. We also called Viator, they told us that they give you the map of the location. We are sorry you wasted your time and your day.
