This is a perfect trip if you are short on time and want to get the essence of Cinque Terre. Our guide was Gabrielle and he was the perfect guide we could ask for. He made sure to interact with every one of us. He was quite warm to all of us and made sure people who weren't doing the hike had all the info. During the hike, he stayed back for people who were having difficulties in doing the hike and was quite supportive. In each village, he gave us the highlights with a small tour and suggested the things to try.
I would totally recommend this trip!
