The boat was comfortably empty. There was plenty of space to maintain decency or to change places. The view from the boat on the coast was very nice. The tour guide was very nice and very patiently served all the languages requested. However, I would have liked to have had a little more guidance in the places. But that way you had more free time.

Great walk along the Cinque Terre coast! The visit of the 2 villages was very good and our guide, Sabrina, spoke impeccable French. Thank you to her for these fascinating explanations on this magnificent region. After having done the Cinque Terre from the inside, it was really good to see them on the sea side!

I really liked it, only the description said that this tour would last 4 hours and in the end it lasted 8 hours. Since I'm pregnant we wanted to do a shorter tour so that I could keep up. So in the end I thought it was quite spicy but it was worth it.
