What people are saying about Porto Venere

A unique and memorable experience! I booked this tour alone: initially I was with five other people but then towards sunset it was just me and Davide, a helpful, easygoing and very kind person! The tour was really nice and the fact that there was such a small group made the experience more enjoyable and peaceful! Including there were drinks and local products, all fresh and delicious! Would I do it again? Yup! Who would I recommend it to? To all those who want to try something different and give that extra touch to their stay in Liguria! :)

We had a fantastic day touring the cinque terre by boat. The beverages and music on board made for a great way to take in all the sights. Both swimming spots were beautiful and a great way to cool off in the sea. The break in Monterosso was enough for us to have a sit down lunch and tour around a bit before heading back to the boat. We highly recommend this tour to be able to see all five towns from the sea!

Thanks Davide - a really kind and funny guide - we had a wonderful relaxing day. And a very good homemade pasta by Davide! Excellent! Edna, Michael and Isodorro

Excellent activated! Ideal for a day of relaxation: boating, swimming, a walk in Monterosso with enough time for a restaurant.

Beautiful experience, the two super friendly and helpful guys. If you are in the area, a must do
