Angel and Sandra were awesome! Very enthusiastic about what they do and very informational! This is a great trip to take if you don't have multiple days in your schedule to stay within the Cinque Terre. We got to see all 5 towns and enjoy an great lunch overlooking the sea--Not to mention the hike was beautiful. I would highly recommend taking any tour with Walkabout!

This tour was awesome, so fun! Fabian was the best guide I've ever had, hope that you get him!! He had the best tips and helps you get the most out of the cinque terre trip. The hike was not difficult, much of it is shaded. Highly recommend it to anyone, and highly recommend Fabian as a guide.

AN AMAZING TOUR! I usually hate tours, and don't like to travel with tour groups on my travels I'm a backpacker, but the tour was phenomenal, a great workout, and my guide Fabienne was amazing! Definitely recommend!

If you are considering doing this tour, DO IT! We really enjoyed this tour! The day is perfectly planned out so you get to see and do the most possible in one day! Hiking, boat ride while sipping wine, shopping, lunch with a view, it was all great!
Just a small warning, the hiking portion of the tour is more difficult than we expected. They state that you should be of average-level fitness, however, I would say that you should be of good fitness to do the hike. The hike was steep and rocky and it took us about 1 hour and 45 minutes to complete. The views during the hike are unforgettable though!
Even though the hike was more difficult than we thought it would be my mom did it, but it was challenging for her and my aunt was unable to do the hike, the day was incredible and the guides were enthusiastic and fun! Fabian was Fabulous and kept us entertained! You can really tell that the guides love their jobs!
We give this tour two thumbs up and we would do it again in a heartbeat! Thank you for a Fabulous day Fabian he deserves a raise!!
We highly recommend WalkAbout tours as we have done several of their tours and loved all of them Cooking Class, Wine Safari, and Cinque Terre!

Our guides were Freddie and Angel from Walkabout Florence Tours. Cinque Terre was on my must see list for visiting Florence. On this tour we travelled by bus, train, hiked and boat. Lunch was included - we ate a meal of seafood tasting plate followed by a pasta dish with pesto. Both were delicious. The restaurant in Corniglia looked out over the water and township - beautiful views and a taste of what was to come.
The hike between Corniglia and Vernazza was challenging in parts but the views over the coastline whilst we were walking made it truly worth it. You can hike the 4.5kms in your own time, we were advised the average time is 75 mins. I completed it in about 50mins still stopping along the way for photos. We were able to fill our water bottles from a fountain in the village before setting off. Make sure you take a water bottle to fill as it can be quite hot - you need to drink plenty!
Trains between the towns made travel efficient so that we could spend time exploring each town. The boat trip from Monterosso to Riomaggiore was a great way to see the towns from another aspect.
I loved everything about this tour and would recommend that you book it if you are of at least average fitness and wanting to see the Cinque Terre. Thank you so much Freddie and Angel.
