      Perfect Night!
      We had the best time on this sunset cruise. The hosts were fun and engaging, the weather and water were perfect, and the food & champagne/soft drinks for the kids were just icing on the cake. We loved our vist from Luigi the sea gull and the dolphin sighting. Could not have planned a better night for our family. THANK YOU!!

      Picture perfect sunset evening on the water, complete with snacks and a swim!
      Lovely curated boat tour along the coast line of Cinque Terre! Thomas was our guide, who shared insights about the local lifestyle and notable sights. They gave us a delicious spread of prosecco, quiche, focaccia, pesto, salami and parmesano reggiano. We stopped for a refreshing swim and then on to view the sunset as we approached Monterosso. Lovely people, calm waters, an overall beautiful evening. As the original booking date had rough seas, they were very communicative and flexible to rebook us for another date when the seas were accommodating.

      Experience of a lifetime
      This was well worth the money. The gentleman telling us about the area was very informative. He was able to answer all of our questions. We never thought we would be swinging in October but it was a gorgeous evening. The food provided was delicious. I would highly recommend this trip. The Capt was very nice too.

      Worth the trip
      Definitely worth the trip to see the citque terra. Recommend a boat trip down to the last village the bus back stopping at each village. 2 or 3 days are enough time to see each village and still have beach time.

      Incredible Experience!!!
      Alessandro (Captain) and Tommy the guide were great!!! We went on a half day tour with them leaving from the harbor around lunchtime. There were three other very interesting couples on the boat with us. The boat cruised slowly by the towns, and Tommy gave us a wonderful history of the area. We stopped twice to take swims in the incredibly beautiful waters. This was well worth what we paid. You got a good sense of Cinque Terre from this ride. They also served a wonderful lunch. I am prone to seasickness, so I did not partake, but my wife said it was great. To that end as long as the boat keeps moving, you are less apt to get seasick, so despite the fact it was a "choppy" day, I had no problems. I highly recommend these guys!!!! They were terrific!!

      Charming boat ride along Cinque Terre
      We had an awesome time on the boat ride. Our guides were very pleasant and informative. Chatted with us all and made everyone feel included in the conversation. Our original ride was cancelled due to weather but they were very accommodating and rebooked us during our stay. Highly recommend this tour!!

      Fantastic sunset boat cruise a must do!
      My husband and I were only staying in Cinque Terre for a day and a half and I wanted to see the most of the 5 towns and knew this would be doable by boat. The operators Magda and Alessandro were wonderful about confirming and reconfirming and leaving very detailed notes about where to meet, what to expect, etc. in emails. The boat was a great size, we had 12 people in our group and it was such a fun atmosphere with everyone. Also, the snacks on the trip..the pesto was to die for!!! Everyone also had the opportunity to swim and the pictures I have from this trip are breathtaking. We took many pictures in front of all the most picturesque places it was literally like being in a postcard and especially as the sun was setting its breathtaking. I would 100% do this tour again and recommend it to anyone I know!

      Fantastico!
      Absolutely brilliant. Lovely to see the towns and coastline from the sea, and the sunset was gorgeous. Boat was very comfy. Food was delicious and prosecco was plentiful! Very friendly and knowledgeable crew. There was time for a dip in the sea too which we enjoyed. Communication was also very good. Would really recommend them.

      Spectacular Sunset Boat Tour
      Given the coastal location of the Cinque Terre villages, it was important to me, my partner and my sister, that we be able to see the Cinque Terre from a boat's perspective. I had originally booked a sunset boat tour with a different company, but that had fallen through. I was able to book this tour through Viator that was similarly priced. The tour operator, Alessandro, communicated immediately after I booked, with clear instructions of the boat, what the boat was named, and where and when the boat would arrive at the Monterosso dock. Alessandro also confirmed the boat tour 2 days before, and 24 hours before, so there was always clear communication. The boat arrived at the stated time and location and our tour was piloted by Alessandro and operated by his colleague Tommaso. Our group was at 11 people which allowed for us to be comfortably situated around the boat. Tommaso had an excellent grasp of English and was able to give us a good background of all the sights we were seeing as we went down along the coast to pass all of the Cinque Terre towns, which included the vegetation on the cliffs along the way, the uniqueness of each town, and the uniqueness of the region. During the boat ride, we were able to stop in the waters between Vernazza and Corniglia for a dip in the Ligurian Sea. Floating noodles were available for those who wanted them, as were towels to dry off once back on the boat. Tomasso also put out a spread of Ligurian specialties for everyone to snack on: farinita, bread with pesto Genovese, cheese, sausages, crudite, and Prosecco and water were available to drink. Being able to see each town from the water was a very special viewpoint. Tommaso also gave us insight to the one seagull, Luigi, who adopted the boat as his own. Alessandro expertly navigated us to and from port and Tommaso was an excellent guide. I would definitely recommend this as a Cinque Terre must-do.

      For Those Who Live Inland
      I live on the water and visited the 5 villages earlier in my trip. The captain and crew were entertaining and informative. The snacks ok. I think of being on a boat at sunset was not something I normally do, it would’ve been better.

    We had a blast on this tour! The group is small so everyone gets to try a few bites and have lots of prosecco! Seeing all 5 lands from sea is a great vantage point along with some pearls of info about Cinque Terre and the sunset tour is the way to go. Tommy was a great tour guide and made sure we all had a great time!
    Don't let the fact that they aren't docked with the other boats (no sign other) deter you. It was easy to find them when they came in just as described a few minutes before the tour!
    If you get motion sick, consider taking some medication. I was able to handle this boat (and I was a bit nervous as it's smaller than most I go on to avoid motion sickness). Be sure to wear sunscreen too!

    Wonderful tour with my 18 year old son! It was the highlight of the trip for him. The boat took us past each of the towns and the guide was very fun and also knowledgeable to point out areas of interest like the nazi bunkers and talk about the areas history. He was very attentive with offering food, drinks, and refills. We stopped at two different swimming spots. The water was absolutely perfect....crystal clear, and not too cold or hot. Very refreshing and fun!

    Our driver and tour guide, Tomme were wonderful! He had recommendations for where to hang out and eat later, took awesome photos for us to share and even entertained us with a bird named Luigi that is a regular on the boat. Great experience!

    Extremely disappointed. Literally last minute cancellation with a an email message due to bad weather and seas while we saw many other boats small and big departing from the same port where we were supposed to sail from. Clear weather not a single cloud in the sky, warm, no issue when we sat on the beach the entire day of our trip. Based on the pictures I posted, no big waves, and lots of small and big boats sailing.

    The cancellation was made the day before, you should always check the emails we send, the tour was canceled not due to bad weather but due to the sea conditions which gave about one meter outside the bay of Cinque Terre, as we clearly indicate in the mail (you should have read) the causes of the cancellation are also due to the fact that our boat rocks a lot with the sea over 50 cm, canceling is not our pleasure but it is our duty to guarantee a pleasant and safe tour for all our guests (something that may not all the other companies do), I think it is extremely useless to comment on a photo of the sea inside the bay (calm sea) when the waves are outside the port.

    We took this tour back in 2018. When we decided to return to Cinque Terre, I knew I had to do it again.

    We went today and had a really good time. There were supposed to be four others on the boat but they canceled at the last minute so we had a private tour.

    We slowly went up the coast and stopped in front of each village for pictures. We were served really good tapas on the way back which we enjoyed. We were supposed to swim, but the water was a too cold, so we asked to skip it. Alejandro, the captain, didn't charge us the full price since the trip was shorter than usual. We weren't expecting that but it was much appreciated.

    There was also a young man on the boat who made sure we were comfortable and got us drinks and food. We all had a really good time

    Couldn’t be more wonderful in every way. Thomas and Alessandro were top notch professionals in a most personable way. Extremely knowledgeable of the area, felt absolutely secure. After stopping for a dip in the Ligurian sea we came back on board to a delicious spread of regional delights with a glass of Prosecco. You will get a great overview of the cinque terre area with 2 amazing hosts.
