If I had toi gouvernement on this trip again, I'd stay longer in Camogli and Portofino. St Fruttuoso is crowded and overpriced. The trip itself went smoothly, you should however arrive at least 20 minutes in advance to get a decent seat.

First time on a Segway! The guide was super helpful I. Getting us used to it. Thoroughly enjoyed riding these around and so much information!

Very well organised and ferries on time. Fantastic views and beautiful villages. Snorkelling in camogli was amazing

Beautiful cities, the first one Camogli was nice, the trip was worth it 100%

A wonderful boat trip to beautiful villages. Worth the effort!
