Absolutely stunning views which could be fully appreciated from the e-bike. Umberto is a fun guy to spend the day with and we enjoyed his company. We learnt a lot about Carrara, Colonnata and the marble quarries. We tasted the typical lardo di Colonnata and had a drink all together. E-bikes are perfect to vividly experience the marble quarries and we would definitely recommend this tour! You can adjust the level of the electric assistance which makes the tour suitable for everyone.

We booked a three hour private tour Excellent reservation process very informative and worked with us in every aspect Had an easy pick up in Santa Margarita where we were staying at the hotel Imperiale Our captain Mateo was fluent in English and gave us a wonderful ride to Portofino and the surrounding area. He was very informative and accommodating to all of our requests. We had cold refreshments which were great on a beautiful warm day. I would highly recommend for a very enjoyable half day or full day tour

Our family did the cooking class at Restaurant la Sciamadda dei Vinattieri in Sestri Levante. We started with making fresh pesto and then moved on to two types of pasta. the "light" lunch was anything but. A huge plate of appetizers, followed by the pasta we made and the best tiramisu I have ever eaten. Would recommend for anyone. Young or old. My kids (8,11,14) had as much fun as I did. Thanks for a wonderful morning.

Thank you so much for the great time. We booked the boat in advance and the weather turned a few days before our planned trip. Luna Tours was so helpful and fair and we worked together to find a solution that worked for all parties. I would totally book a boat with them again if I find myself in the Cinque Terre area, such a fun way to see the coastline. Thank you guys so much!

Our family had a wonderful trip touring the Cinque Terre, Santa Margherita Ligure and the Portofino Peninsula in April. My husband and I were traveling with two of our grown children to Santa Margherita Ligure and we found that Lunaetours had many different kinds of full day and half day trips to the Cinque Terre and surrounding area. Umberto was instrumental in organizing three days of tours to each area with the help of local English speaking guides and an English speaking driver, Cristian. I told Umberto that we are an active family and were looking forward to hiking around the beautiful scenic areas of Cinque Terre and the Portofino peninsula. After listening carefully to our timeframe and the things we'd like to see, he came up with the perfect itinerary that would allow us to have a rigorous hike with a very knowledgeable guide, Guido, along the Cinque Terre, up into the hills between Corniglia and Manarola at a good pace, but still allowing us to stop and enjoy a delightful lunch and wine along the way. Guido led us down into Manarola where we caught a boat that leisurely motored all along the spectacular coastline and finally to Monterosso where we dined overlooking the Mediterranean. It was a very full day trip and worth every beautiful second! Guido gave us so much historic information about the region, the plants, the vineyards, the towns, etc. and we left him feeling that we had really experienced the Cinque Terre fully. We didn't have to worry about what trails to hike, where to eat, where to catch the train or where to pick up our boat tickets. Guido took care of all of those details so we could simply follow him, drink in our surroundings and relax and be amazed at the beauty of the scenery around us. One of the days, Cristian, our very professional, delightful and enthusiastic driver met us at our hotel, The Grand Hotel Miramare, in Santa Margherita Ligure, and took us for a half day tour of the coastal towns on the other side of the the Portofino peninsula. He drove us up into the hills behind our hotel where he stopped for us in various locations for photos of the spectacular views. He then took us to the scenic towns of Camogli, Chiavari and then Rapallo. Cristian gave us much history of the areas we visited, stopping the car along the way and showing us different aspects of the towns we were approaching. We were able to investigate the towns on our own for an hour or so each, stop into shops along the way, pick up some irresistible focaccia and sfogliatelle and marvel at the ornate basilicas in each town. Breathtaking! Not to mention the views of the sea in these beach towns. Cristian made sure we had the opportunity to take in the best areas of each town, describing what to look for and answering our many questions. He was always very punctual and made sure we had enough time to enjoy and experience the vibe of the towns we visited. The final day of our tour started again at our hotel where we met Boris our guide who took us on our next hike into some of those hills behind our hotel. We trekked upward again listening to his description of the towns we hiked through and the history of the positively gorgeous, lush and hilly landscape, right down to the geology of the region. Really fascinating! We stopped halfway for a glass of the wine from that area, at a very unassuming restaurant that popped out of nowhere on the trail. Remarkable! Then continued on our hike to San Fruttuoso climbing high above the cliffs, with stunning views of the Mediterranean. When we arrived at San Fruttuoso, we had a proper lunch as Boris told us the history of the abbey there which is directly on the beach. Our boat trip from there to Portofino was delightful and then hiking around the hills there and touring the very famous town of Portofino with a gelato in hand was a perfect finish to another full day of reveling in the Italian landscape, history and people. We can't rave enough about Lunaetours and the spectacular trip we had with the guidance of Umberto and all the wonderful guides who showed us this extraordinary part of Italy. We wouldn't have been able to have such a stress-free, completely relaxing journey to this region of Italy without their expertise. I can actually say that there wasn't a single negative aspect to our trip. How often can anyone say that about traveling and touring anywhere?! It will be a trip we will never forget and we will call on Lunaetours again for our next trip to Italy which can't be soon enough!
