Questo momento sul mare con il guida Andrea era meraviglioso! Il tempo sembrava fermarsi e abbiamo approfitato di una bella passaggiata sul mare, con il tramonto. Andrea will be an eccezionale guide, molto gentile e conosce bene la regione, dà degli consigli preciosi e racconta bene la storia della regione. Perdipiù, the apperituvo servito pendante la pessegiata era eccezionale e buonissimo. Per una passeggiata sul mare riuscita consiglio veramente questa compagnia. Nina.

This sunset cruise was a wonderful way to kick off our time in La Spezia and Cinque Terre! The views were beautiful, the food and wine delicious and our guide Andrea’ (sp?) was so sweet and thoughtful. Our party of 4 ended up having the boat to ourselves. If it is your first time in the area would definitely recommend. One of the highlights of our trip.

The excursion was amazing, we did the both (because we enjoy so much the first that we decided to retake the one for sunset) It was amazing, the capitain his so cool !!! Absolutely stunning

Wonderful tour. The only negative note is the absence of a guide to illustrate places and tell the history and / or characteristics of the places. I advise

So recommend this personal experience. Loved having the boat almost to ourselves!
