What people are saying about Porto Venere

Excellent tour for anyone who only has one day to visit the Cinque Terre. Well organized, the meeting point is easy to find, courteous staff with a trilingual Italian, French and English guide. The stops at the 3 stops pass quickly because the restaurants fill up and many close around 4:00 p.m. It is therefore sometimes difficult to find a restaurant without a queue and with fast service. I highly recommend this tour!

Great way to see Cinque Terre. Boat ride was excellent gives you a great perspective from the ocean. All three spot tops gave us plenty of time to Miller round have a late lunch and a snack. Wonderful trip!

Great boat tour of Cinque Terre with an unexpected stop for an hour in Monterosso.

Good day, which allows to have a global bridge on the five lands…. Very nice boat…

I highly recommend this experience we had an amazing time!
