A day in Portofino

I thought the tour was very well run and I really enjoyed it. The tour guide Silvia was very friendly and helpful with showing us around and giving us advice on what to do at our destination. I will definitely use mytour again in the future.

How to do Portofino and San Fruttuoso for the "not-so-rich-and-famous

The day trip to Portofino and San Fruttuoso with guide Sylvia and driver Stefan was my second tour with this company. This full day's excursion leaving from Florence was long but well organized. The combination of bus and boat ride was a good balance and the scenery was stunning, no matter which kind of transport. Sylvia maintained a great balance of historic and local information as we passed various sites, but she also did well at judging when the group just needed to sleep or look out the window. For travelers on a budget, this was the cheapest and best value-for-money option to see the playground of the ultra wealthy, as overnight stays were too much for the average tourist. There is no doubt these two locations are absolutely stunning and worth the visit, to at least live vicariously for a day. The surprise welcome drink in Portofino was a particular treat! It was the perfect compliment to the view of lavish yachts and super-crusiers (we were just missing George Clooney!) During the 2.5 hours travel from and to Florence, there was a highway stop but beware - their prices are nothing sort of thievery! Best to grab snacks before you leave Florence. The bus was super comfortable, clean and welcome sight on a hot day (the air con was mercifully cold). I highly recommend this trip if a day at the Italian seaside is on your must-do list.

Porto Fino and San Fruttuoso

The tour was very entertaining and relaxing after being walking for a whole week in Rome and Florence. Silvia (The tour guide) was very knowledgeable and kind. She was attentive all the time to have everyone informed. The time allowed to do all activities was perfect. I highly recommend this tour. Also, the company is very responsible for our safety as they provided 2 drivers for the bus; one different each way.
