Great one day trip, especially for those that want to cover several parts of Italy! We had a great guide who was very knowledgeable about the area. Would recommend this tour for young (and young at heart) travelers due to the fast pace and hustle. However, there is still plenty of time to relax and take photos (especially in gorgeous Cinque Terre). Went in 2018.

A wonderful day trip to interesting Pisa and beautiful Cinque Terre from Florence with great guides! Our guides, Giulia and Domenico were very professional and handled the train changes and time schedules very well. The guides were mainly there to help us with the trains (which wouldn't have been easy without them!) and keep us company onboard. In Pisa and Cinque Terre they took us to the sights and gave us plenty of free time to explore. A great day, I warmly recommend this trip!

My family joined the tour organized by the Italy on a budget tours to visit Pisa and Cinque terre. There was good arrangement on transportation and meal, and more important a knowledgeable and responsible guide to lead us to different sightseeing spots. I would say there was quite sufficient staying time in each spots given we were visiting both Pisa and Cinque terre in one day. We were totally satisfied with the tour as organized. You won’t disappointed.

Great way to meet other travelers as a solo traveler. The guide mostly was just helping navigate the complexity of train. Although the price doubled the train tickets (about €50-60 in total) and TripAdvisor’s price ($130) was a bit more expensive than other sites (about €100). Recommend if you want hassle free, otherwise, you didn’t miss much just going by yourself.

Hello, we are very sorry to hear that you didn't think you got enough value for your money. It's unfortunate that you made a comparison between the price of our services with the train fees. In this way, you have completely disregarded the added value that we strive to offer to our customers but more importantly, you don't take into consideration all the hidden costs that every tour operator faces i.e your tour leader's guidance, the office organizational costs, and very high third party fees from the platform you are booking from. We are sorry that you felt that you could have had the same experience by going on your own, as far as the information that was given to you. Unfortunately, this is a faced pace tour and we have limited time at each stop, if what you were looking for was a deep dive into the history of the sights you were visiting, we would have gladly customized a tour for you and booked a Tour Guide for an additional cost. Thank you again for taking the time to share your feedback with us, we value your opinion and we take all reviews seriously and will use them in our continuous improvement efforts!

The trip was very rushed to say the least. Many train changes and the time spent in each village was very short.
As a suggestion; we recommend to only visit the last village which is representative of the others and spend more time and enjoy the views and the village, sit down, have dinner and then returned relaxed and happy…

Hello, we are very sorry to hear that you thought the tour seemed rushed. As per the itinerary that you agreed on upon by purchasing the tour, we would have visited Pisa as well as three of the villages in Cinque Terre. It is indeed a lot to fit in one day, but we cater for those who want to get the most out of their one-day trip. Travelling by train is also by far the most efficient way to visit this particular destination and unfortunately, it takes 2 and a half hours to get there and another 2 and a half to get back. You recommended to visit just one out of the three villages but you made your mind about it because you had the chance to see the other two as well. If you only had been to one, you most certainly would have felt that you could have explored more of the Cinque Terre. We try and give our customers the possibility to see as much as they can so they won't have the feeling that they missed out on something. In saying that we are sorry that you would have changed some aspects of the tour. We appreciate your feedback and hope you had a pleasent stay in italy.

This tour has all the potential to be amazing but there needs to be some changes. They try to do too many things in one day and the result is rushing from one place to the next, often running from train to train. Our guide Emma (or Anna?) was so fantastic! She kept us together and on track every single minute and that's not easy! She even came to check on us when a bunch of rowdy teenagers got on the train. I would suggest Pisa and then 2 of the 5 locations instead of 3. We would have loved to stay at the beach at Manarola much longer!

Pisa is but a tasty appetizer to the amazing beauty of cinque terre. Everyone in the group was friendly, but my friends and I will always remember our guide Julia. She not only answered our questions about her very interesting life, but also gave a great variety of tips of places to go, things to do, and restaurants to try. She handled circumstances out of her control seamlessly, and was the glue that held the group together. Highlight of our stay in Italy

FANTASTIC DAY!!!! So very pleased to have booked the Cinque Terre Day tour with Italy on a Budget. Great value for money and would highly recommend them. Both tour leaders, Francesca and Emma (who we nicknamed 'Spartacus' for stopping the train doors from closing with the hands to make sure the whole group would get on the train together) were very knowledgeable, organised and fun adding so much excitement to the day. Looking forward to book our next excursion with them.

Cinque terre was amazing. Don’t forget to pack your bikini swim wear, and a book. Chilling on the beach near the ocean is the best!
Food though needs some improvement most of the food are highly charged

HI! Thanks for the 5 stars, we are glad you enjoyed the beautiful landscape that Cinque Terre has to offer. Unfortunately, being a very touristic spot, you can expect that food prices can be a bit pricey! Nonetheless we are glad to hear that you still had a great time! Take care!
