Theresa McClureUnited States
Antonella was a last minute change for us but we could not have been more pleased with our tour and wine tasting in Cinque Terre at the beginning of the month. She was able to tailor our tour to our interests and give us a great foundation for heading out on our own the following day. Would definitely recommend her for anyone traveling to Cinque Terre.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Theresa! It was a pleasure to be your guide in Cinque Terre ! Grazie! Antonella.
Patricia D.United States
Antonella's "Cinque Terre Workshop Photo Tour" with photographer extraordinaire, Mauro Fioravanti, was, in one word, MAGICAL! They did their best to make sure we learned about the history of the villages, found visual perspectives that were breathtaking, and discovered some wonderful secrets of photography. Changed my life and my photography completely! Well worth every Euro and would take this tour again without hesitation. There is no better way to see the world than through the eyes of locals. Book it!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Patricia I apologize If I respond you now !! I had a very busy season and I had not much time to check my tours evaluation Thank you for your kind words ! We hope to see you again in Italy ! Grazie 1000 !! Antonella e Mauro
Randy DeCourseyUnited States
Antonella was awesome! We had a group of 36 people and had a plan to take a boat ride up the coast and a train back. However, the seas were too rough that day and the boats were not running. Antonella quickly created a contingency plan to take the train both ways and we were still able to accomplish almost everything we originally planned despite the weather. She is extremely knowledgeable about the Cinque Terre region and would highly recommend her for a small or a large group!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Randy, Thank you for your comment! It was really a pleasure to be your guide. Also the boys and girls were lovely ! I hope to see you again in Italy Thank you again! Antonella. M Thank you again !
