Emilia was right at the port to greet us. We got our train tickets quickly and took off to visit 3 of the 5 towns in Cinque Terre. She was very knowledgeable and professional. We had time to explore towns and shop. Had a nice lunch and were back to La Spezia port by 3pm. Highly recommend her services.

We enjoyed Emilia's tour of the Cinque Terre area. My friend and I stayed in La Spezia and met Emilia at our hotel. She took us by train to all the Cinque Terre towns. We did a lot of walking but it was great! It was a beautiful day and not only was Emilia knowledgeable about the towns, she also knows where the best views were that were tourist group free. Hundreds of tour groups are going thru the Cinque Terre area, yet she kept us away from the crowds and admiring the best views. Thank you.

Emilia was a delightful guide with lots of patience and kind spirited, perfect company for a solo traveller. We had a scrumptious frutta di mare dish in Monterosso, a refreshing granita from Manarola's gelateria, and took beautiful photos at the picturesque town of Riomaggiore. I really enjoyed Emilia's company. She pleases her guests and shows the hidden treasures of each of the towns visited.

Emilia was a fantastic guide! Our entire group (5 people, ages 6 to 70) thoroughly enjoyed our entire day in Cinque Terre, despite the rain. Emilia was flexible, reliable, professional, patient, and a good communicator. We arrived in Livorno via cruise ship. Emilia met us at the train station in La Spezia and kept track of the status of train schedules to ensure we made it back in time so as not to miss our cruise departure. We are grateful for our wonderful day with Emilia!

Emilia was a wonderful guide. Due to bad weather, we had to adjust our plans and substitute our time in Portovenere. Instead, we went to Riomaggiore, which was just beautiful. We had a fantastic lunch in Monterossa and got to Vernazza as well. We appreciated her concern for my husband's mobility issue, and we couldn't have had a more memorable day. We highly recommend your tour with Emilia. We feel like we have a new friend.

Emilia was very patient in answering my questions before the tour was booked to make sure that it was right for me and was able to plan the tour on short notice. The tour itself was wonderful and she is a very knowledgeable guide. If you are looking to see as much of Cinque Terre as you can in one day, I would highly recommend this tour with Emilia.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Angela, it was a great day for me too. Immediately I felt like I was on tour with a friend. Thank you so much!

Our tour of Monterosso, Vernazza & Manarola, by ferry, was delightful & provided a unique view to each city from the Ligurian Sea. Emilia was very personable & full of historic, religious & cultural information about each town we visited. We particularly enjoyed the vineyard walk high above the village of Manarola. The tour provided a perfect orientation to Cinque Terre & helped us set priorities for revisiting the 5 towns. Grazie mille Emilia for a special day! - Tim, Betsie, Will & Emma

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Delorm family, I thank you for choosing me, it was a great day with you!

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!

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
