Tuscany and the Cinque Terre

From Medieval Hill Towns to Seaside Villages

Client Comments

I LOVED THIS TRIP. As I look back, I have nothing but happy memories of each and every day. Our group was amazing as far as getting along and making new friendships. I have a new love for Italy and the countryside, as well as the traditions and language, all because of this trip and these guides and all the careful prep put into the whole thing. Cannot thank you enough.

Outstanding trip, thank you! I absolutely loved the hiking and felt like we were seeing off-the-beaten-tourist-track places. Great guides, really good food, and the Italian Riviera was spectacular—especially the last day hiking out of Portofino to the cove with the big seafood lunch on the beach. What a way to end the trip! It was fabulous in every way. This was one of my favorite trips ever, and I've traveled extensively throughout the world. I can't wait to do another one with you.

Excellent lodging at hotels that we would return on our own. Can't say enough about the talents of our leaders in putting together the picnic lunches. This was our first trip of this kind, and I expect we'll be back. Sicily? Dolomites? All in all, it was a great value for the money, and I so appreciated the mix of hiking and in-town visits.

This was a well-designed trip which we very much enjoyed. Our Trip Leader JoAnn was well informed, organized and very engaging throughout our trip. We learned a great deal on our hikes and so enjoyed the museum tours and the guides she chose to lead them. We have always spoken highly of WT to our friends and family.

I was a tour guide myself in my younger years; thus, I feel qualified to address all the fine qualities of this experience. Wonderful human touches brought so much life to this trip: the cozy restaurants, charming hotels, the farms and vineyards, and above all, our three guides—lovely human beings, and so professional. Superb!

I enjoy reliving the beauty of the countryside, the plethora of information received, the charm of the medieval cities, the delicious picnics, and the company of interesting, intelligent, cheerful people—both fellow tour members and the wonderful trip leaders.

I was very impressed with this trip. Our guides were wonderful, and I loved seeing some of the out-of-the-way villages we hiked through. It was great to be off the beaten path.

It was an overall wonderful experience—we didn’t have to think about anything (other than what to order for dinner).
— Tom K., Sudbury, MA
This was a great itinerary that was well organized and well executed. We had great food and wine at every destination and very well-informed trip leaders.
