This Cinque Terre and...
MichaelAxworthy, Mar 2023
This Cinque Terre and Pisa tour was amazing! This tour was through "I Just Drive", Khaled Balti was our driver and he was amazing. Viator and I Just Drive do an amazing job communicating before/after of what to expect and directions. The pickup spot was close by our hotel, maybe 5 minute walk, and Khaled was prompt. We all loaded up in the Private Mercedes van and were shuttled off towards Cinque Terre. Along the way Khaled shared more information about Cinque Terre, Pisa, tips around Florence and Italy, and was a great driver (felt very safe). Khaled offered multiple times to give us bathroom breaks, stopped at very scenic spots to take in, and then took us to our first stop at Cinque Terre. The first stop was Riomaggiore, from there we took the train to the furthest town (#5) in the Cinque Terre, Monterosso, at each location Khaled told us the highlights and pointed us to points of interest. Monterosso has an amazing lookout path (very walkable, with a statue of San Francesco d'Assisi), and at the opposite end was a giant statue along the beach of Neptune. We then loaded back up in the train to the last stop, #4, Vernazza where Khaled called in ahead and booked us a lunch reservation right along the beach. From there, we loaded up into the train back to stop #1 and loaded back into the van to head towards Pisa. Khaled and the I Just Drive team are pros, and brought us in a back area where we could walk right into Pisa and not have to deal with crowds which was great. We had 30 minutes at Pisa which surprisingly felt like enough, got the fun pictures pushing against the tower and explored the grounds. If you wanted to have more time exploring the Cathedral or Baptistry, you'll want to consider asking ahead or getting tickets ahead of time to save yourself as much time as you want. Another couple in the tour had tickets to climb Pisa and had plenty of time to do it. From there, we shuttled on back to Florence and arrived at almost the exact estimated time provided. When you first take off, the 12 hour day feels like it'll be a LONG 12 hours. But as soon as we arrived in Cinque Terre, the day started to fly by. We had so much fun and will forever remember how amazing those towns were. Things to note, each town has little shopping / bars / restaurants / public or paid bathrooms / pharmacies. If you even get the slightest car sickness, bring some dramamine or sit up front. The road to Cinque Terre starts to get very windy and there can be lots of fast/tight turns or quick stops. Someone in our group get car sick on the way, rough way to start a long 12 hour tour but they were a trooper and was good to go after the first down.
Don't waste a minute and book this tour!

I'd give this tour 100 stars if I could. My boyfriend and I took this tour along with two other couples and our guide. Every single stop felt like a dream. Talk about picture-perfect places! We found ourselves exploring beautiful streets, coastlines, and even running up the steps of the tower of Pisa! Khalid was our driver and he took time to get to know every one of us. He kept us hydrated and as we wondered during free time, he'd pop up and make sure we were doing okay. This was my first time ever booking a tour like this and I'd book it 20x over. Absolutely the best day!
Lovely day excursion

Beautiful! Inspiring! Once in a lifetime experiences!
Ericka_H, Mar 2023
Super fun day with Khaled and others on our tour! We loved hiking to the Convent of the Cappuccini Friars, shopping in the little shops of Monterossa, lunch by the sea, and seeing the terraced houses. The beauty of the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the Baptiste were stunning!!
A Memorable Experience
Cami_B, Mar 2023
Rami was a fun, knowledgeable guide and an excellent driver. There is a lot of walking up and down hills and steps—but the views and experiences are worth it!
Great guide

Andréa was incredible. He was friendly, knowledgeable, one of the best tour guides I have ever had. I would highly recommend taking a tour with him.
Syed_S, Mar 2023
Wonderful experience. Excellent tour and driver. Took great care of us Highly Recommended. Driver/ Tour guide went above and beyond to take personal care of the clients
Best way to see the Cinque Terre from Florence, especially in off season
Kate_Y, Mar 2023
This tour was really done well. Rami was our driver and guide and he gave us clear instructions for each stop. There were only 5 of us in a large van, so very comfortable traveling. We saw 3 of the towns in Cinque Terre, taking the train in between each one. Rami accompanied us and made sure we got on and off the train at the right places. Then he told us how much time we would have and how to get down to the harbor or into areas of town that might be of interest. These towns were so beautiful and we all got some great photos. He suggested a restaurant in the last town, and we all had lunch together. The last part of the tour was to Pisa and we had plenty of time to see the tower, climb it, and see some of the other sights in the Field of Miracles. This tour, with the company I Just Drive, exceeded my expectations; Rami was a great guide! It was a long day, but the only way to be able to go to the Cinque Terre in the off season and maximize the time to see several towns. Then the bonus of being able to see the tower at Pisa made it even better.
Don’t not see Cinque Terre and the Leaning Tower of Pisa
Barbara_d, Mar 2023
Cinque Terre and the Leaning tower of Pisa are a must see if you take a tour out of Florence. Absolutely phenomenal!Gabriel was a great guide. He made the day so interesting as well as fun! He looked after us making the train and lunch reservations, as well, he provided so much information. A great tour!

A wonderful experience
Robert_L, Jan 2023
Cinque Terre was beautiful. The tour guide was amazing. He was so knowledgeable and so interesting and pleasant to speak to. He took really good care of us and made sure we were comfortable. I would definitely recommend this trip.
Not much open in the winter but the views were worth the trip
Brittany_S, Jan 2023
My husband and I had a great time on this tour. A lot of businesses are closed during the winter but the views are definitely worth it. Ani did a great job of navigating our group to each of the villages.
Cinque terra is awe inspiring
Adam_K, Jan 2023
Andrea is best guide I have every met. He truly puts all into his job to speak perfect English and to do all he can for the trip to be great. Wish he could travel though out trip to teach me more. Thanks so much you have an amazing talent.
I just relaxed
Kavitha_S, Dec 2022
I just drive-Very friendly and accommodating. Enjoyed the tour with a great experience. Made reservations for lunch as it was Christmas day with limited service. Would definitely tour again with them.
Good guide but poor misrepresentation of actual itinerary
Zach_L, Dec 2022
Overall, the trip is ok. The instructions on the confirmation details are not 100% accurate. For example, in winter, there is no boat rides, however the confirmation details include boat tix. There is also no ipad mini given to help on the explanation of the area we going to. Consolation is that the driver got explain a bit of the place before we reached. As there are many people in the trip with other groups, it will be helpful to give a headset to ease on communication(like when to alight the train, when to board). Also if we are not going to manalora, then dun use it as your viator’s picture
Wonderful day driver it was fantastic result safe and comfortable
James_H, Dec 2022
Our driver Rami was very friendly and accommodating a pleasure to spend the day with. He was very informative and explain everything to us very clearly as her as we're to meet and wearing etc also give recommendations as far as restaurants etc
Great guide, great tour
Mary_C, Dec 2022
Our guide was amazing and passionate and informative! The tour is mostly the cinqueterrre and hardly any time at Pisa. I would recommend doing them separately if you are like me and like to spend time reading all of the info, and you have time. But, if you like to zip through things it is the perfect way to see Pisa. I could have doesn’t a whole day at both if schedule allowed.
Great Option to visit Cinque Terre Villages
Rafael_A, Dec 2022
Nice experience, wonderful time going to Cinque Terre. Driver is very knowledgeable of the places around. They take you to all villages, they have inclusive tickets for the train to visit all places with plenti time to walk around villages. Visit Pisa on the way back is nice to visit an historic place of Pisa Tower and Chiesa
