At the start we were disappointed because we pass a 5Terre by train not boat, but after time we see throught, that this is the mysterious weather and the waves was big, so we accept it this “travel by train”. The excelent driver Adriano pick up and take out at the place and his wheel with pedals is like his skills. The guide name as Luigi is very grateful, funny and helpfulness. He comunicated enought that he wasn’t even annoying. He talk about everything, from us to every sights and the interestingness about place, history and present. For us was less time to stay at village, but our overall impression don’t change, it was PERFECT

Fantastic fun Tour. First time on an E scooter and wasn’t the last whilst in Pisa! Viola was a great guide providing an overview of Pisan history and answering any questions we had whilst showing us the highlights of Pisa. Would definitely recommend - time well invested to set you up to explore Pisa afterwards either on foot or by E scooter!

Thank you for a great trip!! We got to see so much in the time we had. Cinque Terre was as beautiful as I imagined and we got to go by ferry and the train so we got the best of both worlds! Luigi was an amazing guide, great knowledge and so helpful and fun. Big thumbs up to Luigi and our driver!! Super Beautiful and Amazing

Very enjoyable easy riding ebikes. Viola is a superb, knowledgeable and friendly guide. She picks interesting stops and tells the stories about murals (paintings), an ancient church and lots more. Plenty of swimming and sunbathing on a beautiful beach.

Tour started on time. The driver and guide were very active/nice and friendly.
