My daughter and I had a very enjoyable time on this tour. Alex, our guide, was raised in the states but lives in Italy so he speaks both languages very well. The bus trip out, the hiking, the lunch in Corniglia, the hiking, the beautiful scenery, the hiking, all the picturesque towns, and the group of people we went with, were all fantastic. The value of the trip was well worth it. I'd recommend it for anybody as long as you like to hike!!
