I am not usually a fan of group tours but I loved everything about this one! At 10am sharp we were met by our lovely, English speaking, florentine guide, Elisa. We were lucky enough to have only 9 people in our class which was perfect (groups can be up to 19 people). We started the day with a 2 hour... More

After a lot of contemplation of doing the "Cinque Terre" day trip on our own, we decided to with a group tour, primiraly because every post/review online said that all the 5 villages cannot be covered in a day, hence not knowing what to expect, we booked the Cinque Terre hiking tour online via Viator Man, who knew that this...

We did the Best of Tuscany Tour in October. Everything was excellent. From the transportation to the food to the farm tour etc..It is the best value for what you get and it truly is a full day of sightseeing that is worth every second. Olivia was our guide and she truly cared for everyone in the group and was... More

Hy there good-hearth people, in-loved with Tuscany! In June 2014 we had the best 2 trips ever in our lives by the "Walkabout Florence Tours". The tour of Cinque Terres & Best of Toscany are, of course, marvelous - 1.000 words are not enough to tell the spell BUT ALL WAS MADE AGREEABLE AND FAMILY STYLE BY THE 3 GUIDES... More

I will admit that I can be a bit of a snobby traveler. I don't enjoy large group tours, cruise ships, all-inclusives or chains. So this was NOT the tour for me. We made the mistake of not reading the Poor and Terrible reviews on Tripadvisor before booking. Had we done so, we never would have booked this tour because... More

We did the Best of Tuscany Tour in November. Despite the rainy day, I still shot hundreds of pics and had a great time listening to Elise give the standard tour spiel (she's a riot, made it very fun). For the $, we saw a lot of Tuscany and had a great meal at the organic farm (all you can... More

We loved this tour. Cinque Terra is so beautiful and unique. Our guide, Freddy, was super. The hike was a bit challenging in that it rained in the morning before we arrived, so there were slippery rocks, etc. and Freddy was very careful in making sure everyone made it through okay. Freddy was also knowledgeable, fun and super nice. Highly... More

We did the day trip from Florence to Cinque Terre with guides Freddy and Fabio and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a long day; but well worth it. We left from Florence train station at 08h00 and drove up through Tuscanny to Cinque Terre. The first stop was just outside of Manarola where we walked down into the village. We... More

This class was by far the highlight of the trip to Florence. Mara, the guide, was absolutely outstanding. She made each of us feel very welcomed. The walking "tour" of Florence to buy the food was so informative. The facility at the "farm" was superb. Carmella, our teaching chef, was the best. Although she spoke little to no English, by...
