This was a fantastic tour with an awesome guide. Emilia was vibrant and engaging, and easy to communicate with. She had our schedule sorted in advance, and despite it being an incredibly hot day, her energy level did not drop. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Emilia, who had excellent knowledge of the area.

Emilia was a perfect host for our Cinque Terre adventure. She was timely with responses prior to meeting, met us at the agreed-upon location, guided us to the ferry that took us to Portovenere and onto Monterosso al Mare. We explored Portovenere a bit and visited the St Peter church at the top of the hill and then took a nice relaxing and visually stunning ride to Monterosso. We had a lovely lunch. Emilia catered to our needs and was agreeable to all requests. We highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David, it was my pleasure to host and guide you in my beautiful area. Lucky you, I love Ireland! Kindest Emilia

Wow! Only Emilia could have done justice to the gorgeous Cinque Terre villages. She knew all the best photo spots, took us through back alleys to show us how the people in the village really live, and had many stories to tell about the history and beauty of the villages. Emilia planned our trip perfectly and we got to see all 5 villages by train and boat. She is a fantastic guide, and I would recommend her highly to anyone wanting to visit this wonderful region.

Emilia very knowledgeable and helpful in guiding us through Porto Venere and the villages of Cinque Terre, and then back to La Spezia. Her value was in the local knowledge, and also in who to spend our time among the five villages (she focused on three, plus of course Porto Venere which was a highlight - don't miss it!) and also where to eat. Fantastic lunch! She also knew which local shops to pop into for fantastic focacia and also pesto. A great day!

Six hours or so spent in the engaging company of Emilia was time well spent. We learned much about Cinque Terre and life in Italy in general.

Narda BebingerUnited States
Emilia was our guide in Cinque Terre. We had been a little overwhelmed by the amount of people there and told Emilia we would like to tour somewhere that wasn't quite as crowded. She suggested we visit Portavenere and travel there by boat. Emilia who is fluent in many languages and well trained as a guide, brought us through one of the most memorable days of our trip. She showed the best places to eat to enjoy the local food and the beautiful surroundings. We highly recommend Emilia ; we felt like friends
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Narda! A rate like yours make me love even more my job... and by the way now you know you have a friend here in Cinque Terre! Warm regards Emilia

I have used TBL many times. Each experience is better than the previous. Emilia was EXCELLENT. She had a warm and pleasant personality and gave us a wonderful tour. At her suggestion we travelled by boat down the coast then travelled by train between the cities--- WONDERFULL At each city she pointed out things and took us to areas we would never have seen on our own
