“Walkabout tour of Cinque Terre out of Florence”
Reviewed 12 September 2012

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!!

“great experience, would recommend it to everyone”
Reviewed 12 September 2012

we stayed 3 days in Florence. We booked the Best of Tuscany tour with Walkabout a few weeks before our trip. This was the best thing we could have planned to do on our stay in Florence. The tour bus was very comfortable and well air conditioned which was very important due to an incredibly hot August. Our tour guide Agata was amazing. She was very insightful and incredibly helpful in whatever you asked. Our stops to Sienna, San Gimignano and eating at a farm with a beautiful panoramic view of tuscany was amazing. The food was good enough and the wine was plentiful. We actually bought some items in the shops. Sienna was amazing, they were preparing for the Palio. We missed it by a week or so. I would definently stay in Sienna for a few nights, its amazing. Don;t forget to eat the Panforte. Look it up, you will appreciate it. Don't forget to eat the ice cream in San Gimignano. Ask your tour guide which place has the award winning ice cream. Pisa is what it is. Take cheesy pictures with the leaning tower, Spend an hour there and take the 1.5 hours back home. I could have done without Pisa but I don't regret it. It was a well paced tour, excellent in every way. Thank you Agata for such a wonderful experience. Loved it!

“Tuscany and Cinque Terre, Two Great Tours”
Reviewed 11 September 2012 via mobile

My wife and I did both tours with Walkabout, the Tuscany tour with stops in Sienna, Pisa & San Grigliamo (please excuse my spelling) and the Cinque Terre tours. Our guides, Eliza (Tuscany) and Alex & Julian (Cinque Terre) were fantastic. Everything was well organized and on time. Sienna was our favorite and we wish we had more time to explore this hilltop town. One suggestion is to book the Tower of Pisa climb with Walkabout as by the time we got to Pisa late in the afternoon, the general ticket sales had sold out and many of our fellow tour guests missed out on this interesting climb. The Cinque Terre tour was breathtaking. Be sure to wear good hiking/walking shoes as the walk from Corniglia to Verrazano is 1 1/2 hours with many, many stairs both up and down. The stairs are uneven and steep, so if you have trekking poles take them. If you go in the summer months, be sure to take a bathing suit because by the time you get to Verrazano, you will be soaked in sweat and a dip in the cool Mediterranean waters is a necessity. Lunch on both tours was fantastic! Well done Walkabout!
