          My friend and I went on an Italy vacation and had to make cinque terre and stop and it lived up you my expectations!
          The views were amazing and the tour guides did a fantastic job! Would stay there forever if I could. Unfortunately the weather was poor and we were unable to go on the boat ride.

          Lots of walking.....
          Do your homework. You will be doing a lot of walking. In Florence it was at least a 15 minute walk from where the bus drops you off to the meeting spot. That wasn't too bad except we had some older folks who were having a tough time keeping up and the tour guide was several blocks ahead of us. She only stopped once to allow us to catch up. With the exception of the central market which was the second stop all other stops were on our own. Some close by most a very healthy walk to reach. We found a nice restaurant and watched Florence from there. The walk back to the bus was the same. Pisa on the other hand was fantastic. We were able to park a block away from the tower and it was amazing. Wish we had more time there. One good thing was that the bus returned us to the cruise ship as everyone on this tour was on the same ship. That saved a shuttle bus ride from the center of town. I realize that the tour guides probably aren't paid very well and that most people tip them at the end of the tour. Reminding the tourists once is appropriate but I counted at least 7 references to taking care of the guide and the driver. A little excessive for my taste.

          The views were amazing. We took so many photos and really enjoyed our lunch and time. We enjoyed the bus and the tour guides.

          Conque Terre
          Thank you so much Elizabeta and Constantino! I had a great time exploring Cinque Terre very specific with the instructions and they explained where you can take an Instagram picture!

          Review of Tour Leaders from Cinque Terra!
          Elisabeth and Constantino were absolutely amazing!!! They were both personable, knowledgeable , fun and funny! Their Detailed information was given perfectly, and they were always happy to answer ANY questions. Both made sure, over and over again, to let us know where and what time to be at each train station. I am not a seafood fan and lactose intolerant, Constantino went out of his way to talk to our restaurant staff at lunch and make sure I had things I could eat! Who does that for strangers?? Cinque Terra was amazing and Elisabeth and Constantino were part of the reasons why!! Let’s not forget Michael, our bus driver. Handled the wet roads perfectly, I was able to sleep all the way to C.T. A++++++++++++++

          Beautiful and well organized
          This was a wonderful day trip from Florence! We departed at 7 AM and took a lovely, clean motorcoach to the coast. After that, there were several different train trips to enable us to visit four different towns on the coast. The towns were so beautiful! We purchased the optional lunch option and had a lovely family style meal at a local restaurant. Constantino and Elisabetta were spectacular guides: we always knew where to go, and when to meet up for our next part of the journey, and they were funny and kind throughout. Michael was a wonderful driver.

          BEST TOUR EVER!!!!
          Absolutely amazing tour and so worth the money!! Sara was a great guide for us and gave lots of information about the areas we visited. Pienza was our personal favorite, we had a great lunch there (per Sara’s recommendation). Would recommend to anyone looking to explore rural areas of Tuscany that are less busy and very relaxing.

          A great time in Val d’Orcia
          So much fun! A worthwhile jaunt into the wines of Val d’Orcia. Would recommend! Reasonable price and system worked well when lost in rainstorm.

          A fabulous day trip in Cinque Terre with Ciao Florence Tours and Travels
          We were a group of travelers from cruise ship . I contacted Ciao Florence Tours n Travel long before my holiday. Elena responded promptly. She was very helpful, gave us a lot of advice. We joined the walking tour from La Spezia port to Cinque Terre for the whole day . We had a Marvelous guide , Sonia. She was kind and gentle , very knowledgeable about Cinque Terre. She helped us to skip the crowds, giving us more time in sight seeing. She knew all the good spots for photo shots . We are grateful for all the beautiful pictures we had in Cinque Terre. She was the best guide in my excursions in Italy. Thank you Sonia for your heartfelt arrangements. Also my appreciation to Elena , her sincerity gave me much confidence in booking through her company. She had helped us to arrange 2 excursions. I highly recommend Ciao Florence Tours and Travels . They are very reliable & caring .

          A fun day in Tuscany
          Good planned and well organized tour. From check-in to directions, re-meetings to the guiding overall it was really good. Sara was a fun and helpful guide. Bus is quite comfortable and driver Luca was careful. Overall we enjoyed our day quite much.

          Convenient but lacking quality
          A long time to be crammed on a double decker bus with 70 people and broken air-conditioning on a hot day. Lunch was tiny (not "hearty" as advertised) rushed and probably the poorest food we've eaten in Italy. It's very generous to call it "wine pairing", the wine is cheap and mediocre, only kinda matches the food, and the explanations of the wine were so rushed it was pointless. This tour is very highly rated and we were disappointed. Very much a quantity over quality business model. It's a reasonably convenient way to see Pisa, Siena and San Gimignano in a day but that's about it. Be aware San Gimignano is way more touristy than it looks in the photos, the old buildings are cool but it's mostly dodgy souvenirs, fake medieval fair banners and people selling "genuine" knock-off handbags.

          AMAZING EXPERIENCE
          The tour was beautiful. The guides Gabriele, Emma and the driver Mario were excellent. I went with the spanish speakers and Gabriele spoke so well, his explanations were very interesting and useful. He also was so fun and entertaining to listen. They handled the group so skillfully, even in the crowded train stations and such. Not to mention how nice they were. I leave with such a wonderful memory and a big part of the reason is because of how good the guides were at their job, making it such an easy an smooth experience. Definitely will be coming back. 10/10. S B

        Whilst not really a complaint we found the starting point was hard to find with one party delaying departure by 1/2 an hour. The overall day was good and towns/cities well worth seeing although rhe wine tasting was a bit of a joke. We were taken through what appeared to be an industrial estate. When we arrived we were shown into a large room with a very small white wine already poured. There was a small plate with bread, cheese and 2 pieces of salami all small. The bread was stale!! The host was fun but it appeared that he was working off a well worn script. All 3 wines were served in the same glass and it felt that we rushed in and out. It was a long day and would have been better without the wine experience. The guides were all fine.

        It all came down to our tour guide, Cristian! My mother, sister and I were wanting to see the Tuscan countryside and experience their local wines on a private tour. The wines, foods, cities and towns with all the beautiful views made the day great, but our tour guide, Cristian, made it special. He was so friendly and knowledgeable about the area and wines as he is an authentic Italian having grown up in Florence. He went out of his way to make our tour special and even helped us plan future trips to other parts of Italy. You can tell he really cares about you and is passionate about his job. Thank you Cristian!

        This tour was PHENOMENAL! Our driver Christian was awesome - supremely knowledgeable and hilarious. He took the time to customize our day based on our preferences on the way out of Florence. We visited a diverse array of vineyards and got to see the coolest old towns in the Chianti region. He made our day so special and we will remember it forever. Thank you Christian and Ciao Florence for a memorable day.

        Wonderful tour and customized for our request to include Siena. This is a very good tour company, and what made it superior was our driver Cristian. Fantastic Guide! Knowledgeable, engaged, a true love of the region and what he does for a living. He was able to answer all of our questions and include a bit of humor. The area is stunning and filled with history and points of interest. But, to have Cristian’s added knowledge and enthusiasm was really, really marvelous. This is a day and tour we will remember very fondly forever. Thank you Ciao Florence and especially Cristian

        The tour was an incredible experience. We went to three wineries and had unique experiences at all. The scenery was stunning and the people at each winery were amazing. One of the best parts was our tour guide, Cristian. He was so fun and knowledgeable while driving us around. Very professional and we would absolutely request him again when we come back.

        Placido was our driver and he was fantastic. The vehicle was clean and comfortable. Placido knows everyone in the region and he will bring you to the best places, including some hidden gems free from crowds. He’s very professional but incredibly kind and quite entertaining. Great knowledge of the region and its history. This experience was one of the best during our time in Florence. Highly recommended!

        Hi Everyone, if you are considering a visit to both Sinena and San Gimignano while in Florence check out “Ciao Florence Tours and Travels”. A wonderfully run company with expert staff. We’ve had group tours on our Italy trip, and most are run well, but if you’re looking for quality and quantity consider a private vehicle tour with this company. We met up at our hotel in the morning with our tour leader Cristian. Immediately we noticed his politeness and command of the English language. We weren’t 10 minutes from the hotel when we quickly realized how we’d “hit the jackpot”. Cristian would ask us about our expectations of the tour and then would ask if we’d be interested in making small changes. By small changes I mean taking a slow winding country road versus a busy highway or focusing more on a particular area of the town. Small things like this made for such a wonderful day. What made him so pleasant besides filling you in on culture, architecture and history while driving is that we could talk to him about anything we wished. Kind of like getting your Dad to drive you someplace. He’s a superb tour guide and if you decide to use this company my advice would be to ask for Cristain.
