Questo momento sul mare con il guida Andrea era meraviglioso! Il tempo sembrava fermarsi e abbiamo approfitato di una bella passaggiata sul mare, con il tramonto. Andrea will be an eccezionale guide, molto gentile e conosce bene la regione, dà degli consigli preciosi e racconta bene la storia della regione. Perdipiù, the apperituvo servito pendante la pessegiata era eccezionale e buonissimo. Per una passeggiata sul mare riuscita consiglio veramente questa compagnia. Nina.

The best excursion in la spezia, the captain is really nice and explains everything to us. We were only 2 couples on this magnificent little boat and really we have the impression of being really privileged, in addition to sharing a sumptuous spectacle of the sunset and the towns lit up at night, it's really incredible. Thank you for this magical moment, the swimming stop too, the little aperitif and a stop in the city it was perfect!!!!

This sunset cruise was a wonderful way to kick off our time in La Spezia and Cinque Terre! The views were beautiful, the food and wine delicious and our guide Andrea’ (sp?) was so sweet and thoughtful. Our party of 4 ended up having the boat to ourselves. If it is your first time in the area would definitely recommend. One of the highlights of our trip.

Wonderful tour. The only negative note is the absence of a guide to illustrate places and tell the history and / or characteristics of the places. I advise

Super great and relaxed tour. You feel very comfortable and the guide was very nice and pleasant! A really great and unforgettable evening!
