Overall rating

4.2 / 5

based on 158 reviews

It was very good. The only "deficit": On the way back from Portofino to Genoa, there were complications due to the weather. Announcements were made in the boat itself about how to proceed. Unfortunately everything in Italian. There were several people present who could not speak Italian and the statements therefore led to a great deal of confusion. Improvement: Have the statements also carried out in English.

Excellent service that allows you to stop and leave at pleasure from each stage. You can visit the Abbey of San Fruttuoso but also swim in a blue sea in both CAMOGLI and SAN FRUTTUOSO and eat an ice cream in Portofino. The only drawback: it is difficult to have lunch in San Fruttuoso, you need to book. Wonderful day.

Excellent and absolutely recommendable, if anything it would be perfect to be able to spend more time in Portofino. Also, we had read comments that San Fruttuoso was not worth it but we loved it, especially the beach.

Punctual departure, excellent staff who politely made you get on board. Even the time to visit the three locations was sufficient ... Well done, you deserve a five-star rating.

Very complete excursion, we manage our time thanks to various shuttles available
