My wife and I recently honeymooned in Florence and were blessed to have an experience in Cinque Terre. Our guide Freddy made it even more so, his knowledge was vast but his hospitality was exceptional, and in a way, we felt like a friend was guiding us. If you had a question, Freddy had answers, and not just pertaining to the Cinque Terre region, he recommended us to several excellent eateries in Florence and great places to hang out during our stay. If Freddy wasn't answering questions or giving facts, he was checking on everyone in our group which accounted for 6, us included. He inquired about how much time we wanted to spend in each town? If the walking was ok? We even had a bump trying to contact our bank and Freddy offered his phone to make the call. He made lunch reservations for us, recommended the local white wine (exceptional), and overall made the Cinque Terre experience that much more special. Julian, our driver was also very knowledgable as well and truly kind, Freddy and Julian made the best team. If we are ever able to experience Florence again we will definitely be looking into ANY tour that Freddy and Julian can be a part of.

It's been 9 years since we've been back to Italy and we made sure not to miss the Cinque Terre this time. Freddy our guide was absolutely superb! The best service we've had in Italy by far all due to Freddy's caring and organizational skills, he really puts his guests first. We visited three of the five villages with over two hours in the last town for lunch and some free time. Freddy was so kind and knowledgeable throughout and we really lucked out with his perfect English. We had done a few tours where we couldn't understand half of what was being said because of the guides heavy accent or lack of vocabulary. I Highly recommend doing this tour with Freddy as your guide while enjoying the spectacular landscape knowing you're in good hands.

This was an AMAZING tour!!! Brando is one of the best tour guides EVER. He's super knowledgeable, friendly, and warm - and you can tell he really loves what he does. He shared a lot of great information about each of the towns in Cinque Terre and some interesting facts about the surrounding areas too. He made us feel welcome throughout the entire day and took great care of us! We were a very small group, which was lovely. The vibe was super chill and fun. We were able to walk around three of the five towns and spent some time swimming at the beach. My mom has a bad knee and she was able to do the whole tour without a problem! Andrea was a great driver and we felt safe throughout the whole journey - he was very friendly and kind, as well! I definitely recommend this for anyone who wants a relaxing, fun, and engaging day. Book it now! You won't regret it!

Loved it. Brando was a seasoned and competent tour guide that took care of us the whole day and made us feel like friends. Andrea was a very good driver and we felt safe the whole trip. It was my favorite part of our weeklong work/travel trip to the northern/mid part of Italy which included Milan, Alba, Bologna, Florence and Rome. Cinque Terre region is ridiculously beautiful and romantic. I am a former competitive swimmer and this trip gave me the chance to swim in the Med sea where the water is perfect. Brando brought us to a restaurant where we had great food and the best white wine I've ever had. I would highly recommend this trip if you want to experience something truly different. I'm not a picture taker or I would upload some pics...

Freddy was fantastic with so much knowledge and history of the area. Giovanni provided transportation in a lovely, clean and Fast! Van. The day was perfectly arranged with the best of the towns visited and time to shop eat and walk on the beach.

We had the best (freshest!) seared tuna we've ever had after taking Freddy's advise on where to eat. He was also right about the best gelato shop and convinced the owner to open early just for us!

Freddy was an amazing tour guide. He has great energy and an amazing backstory. He showed us multiple small towns on the way to Manarola, ensured we had at least 15-20 min of free time both there and Vernazza. He also introduced us to some incredible gelato flavors in Vernazza. We spent 2.5 hours in Monterosso that were perfect for a leisurely water-side lunch, time to dip our feet in the water and of course, time for souvenir shopping. We wanted to try the local olives and Freddy even pointed out places that previous guests of tours had enjoyed. Our driver Tomasso was fantastic as well; maneuvered through some crazy traffic. 100% take this tour. You won’t regret it! It shows you time in three of the major five lands and gives you a good amount of free time in the last one.

An amazing trip with so much beauty, good food and the best tour guide.
Freddy was very knowledgeable and passionate about both Cinque Terre and Florence. He shared loads of facts about the places we were passing through and was open to answering all of our questions. He helped us find the best food & gelato, and knows the best spots to catch the train & boat so we would get the best experience without other tours getting in the way of our own.
We highly recommend anyone considering this trip to go for it. The beauty of the towns alone should be convincing enough. But do it with a tour guide who knows what they’re doing and will help you have the best possible experience in those 10 hours that your there.

Boat trip was good. The whole trip seemed a little rushed. Too long in Monterossa over 2 hours and no time at all in Vernazza. Would have preferred lunch in Vernazza. Most didn't get breakfast as early start so long morning without a break. Very knowledgeable guide. A little too much information at times.

My friend had booked the tour for us, I was not too excited about it. But it turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. The Cinque Terre were everything described in the ad, we loved the little town of Manarola Vernazza, and had a delicious lunch in Monterosso. But the best was our guide! Freddy was knowledgeable, fun, courteous and flexible.... He made the experience a memory to last for years to come.
Make sure you ask for him when you book the tour, he makes the day very special.
Thanks Freddy!
