Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We really enjoyed out kayaking and snorkeling tour with outdoor Portofino. Our guide was really nice on the kayaking portion of the tour and he shared many interesting facts as we made our way along the coastline. And the snorkeling was lots of fun.

Eduardo was an excellent tour guide, patient, knowledgeable, and personable. Kayaking in the clear blue water was beautiful and really helped you feel like you're truly experiencing the Portofino coastline. Booked this as a surprise for the other half and went down a treat, would thoroughly recommend it. Spent the remainder of the day at the small beach outside the Outdoor Portofino hut which was perfect!

A really lovely way to see the beautiful Portofino coast. Arguably the best view of Portofino is from the water at the mouth of the harbour. Alessio was an excellent guide, friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommend.

I was traveling alone with my 4 year old and thought this would be fun, but wasn't sure that my daughter could handle it. I emailed them and they set up a custom tour that was shorter for us and included the focaccia snack and drink at the end. It was exactly what my daughter could handle. Our guide was awesome and pointed out many interesting things about the area. He also talked quite a bit with my daughter as she had MANY questions. They were always very easy to contact and answered any questions I had leading up to the tour.

During a recent stop in Portofino with our cruise line ( at anchor ) we decided the best way to enjoy a hot summer day in Portofino would be Kayaking and seeing it from the water.

Having been to Portofino before, we knew it would be hot and the town would be crowded with not only our fellow cruise passengers but vacationers as well since it was the mid-August.

Took the walk from town to their beach entrance ( about 15 minutes ) and they had all the gear necessary. We were paired with another couple and a family of 3. Our guide Guiseppe was great.

They have changing facilities and hot fresh water shower at their location along with lockers for your personal stuff while you are Kayaking. Be aware that there are no bathroom facilities, if that is an issue for you.

My wife and I went off in a tandem. They are very stable and easy to use.

Guiseppe suggested that we walk back through the park instead of the roadway and we sure are glad we did. The views were beautiful and the entire walk was shaded.

We booked this through Viator - very convenient and a fun way to spend some time in Portofino. Of course we had a fabulous lunch when we got back to town, but that's another review.

For my family this was perfect. This was our first time kayaking. There were about 12 to 15 kayaks that were in our group. They had 3 singles and around 9 double kayaks. My almost 12 year old son and I did this together. Most everyone else had more experience than us and we always were the last ones coming in. Luca took a number of group pictures which we were not a part of but toward the end he included my son and I in the photos which I was grateful for. I have tried contacting the company several times to obtain these photos but without response. I would change my rating to a 5 if I could get those photos as they are the only pictures from our stay in Portofino that I don't have pictures of except for the few here that I posted.
The kayak tour went from the cove to the lighthouse which took around half hour each way. The snorkeling was about half an hour from one end of the cove to another. It was pretty basic but it was my sons' favorite part of the trip.
The aperitivo is exactly as described by the company. It was a perfect snack.
Overall we enjoyed this tour

Hi! Thank you for your review and your feedback. I am sorry you didn't manage to get your pictures. Did you try sending us an e-mail to info@outdoorportofino.com with the day and name of your tour? We usually post our tour pictures on Outdoor Portofino's Flickr account. You may try to check the Flickr account directly going back to the day of your experience. If the pictures aren't there probably it's because the photos didn't come out. I am sorry for this little inconvenient, but I hope the experience remains memorable in your hearts. All the best and hope to have you back :)

Too expensive. The kajak tour is just half an hour, no real explaining from the guides. The snorcheling is nice, but you can do it on your own, no guide needed. Finally, the beverages afterwords are nothing. Just some dry focaccias and bad wine.

Hi! I am very sorry about your experience with our kayak and snorkeling tour. Usually the kayak tour lasts one hour and a half and starts with the briefing where our guides explain the details of the tour. As aperitivo we offer fresh focaccia, pizza, local soft drinks and Ligurian organic vine. I will write a private message to know more information, Alice
