Andrea responded promptly regarding all queries regarding our booking prior to us leaving for our trip to Portofino. We enjoyed the day so much we then booked Andrea to go to San Fruttuoso the following day. Andrea is extremely knowledgeable... More

We took the taxi boat from Santana Margarita to visit Portofino. The weather was bright and sunny providing the perfect conditions for the calm and serene seas as we observed and took in all the beauty of the Italian Coast. The fifteen minute ride each way is the best travel means in my estimation. To top it off, you don't... More

It is much better to arrive by boat than by the road. Great views of the coast and a guide prepares the visit. The boat is fast...20 minutes to portofino !

My husband and I organised this trip with Andrea from Sydney, Australia prior to arriving in Portofino. It was such a brilliant decision and I'm so glad we made it. Our trip was sensational. The weather was perfect. We set off from Portofino harbour and travelled along the coast to San Fruttuoso, stopping for just under an hour in Camogli.... More

We were a group of seven ladies who read The Enchanted April for our book club and were doing a kind of pilgrimage, and we booked Andrea to take us from Punta Chiappa to Portofino so we could approach it from the sea.

I took this to visit another hotel (The Paraggi Hotel) which is about 3 miles down the road from the Splendido Hotel. Paraggi is a very small, quaint (proper) hotel sitting by itself on a very famous bay (where Liz Taylor and Richard Burton would anchor their yacht 150 years ago - HA!

We took the boat from Santa Margarita to San Fruttuoso and then back from Portofino to Santa Margarita. The weather was cool, but the waters calm. We saw dolphins as we reached Portofino so the captain took a detour so we could watch them play. Excellent trip with great views and magnificent photo ops along the way.

I was so excited when I booked this boat ride and was not disappointed. Andrea was very knowledgeable about the coastline from Rapallo to Genoa, and his commentary was interesting and humorous. My adult children said this was one of the highlights of their visit to Italy! We were picked up in Rapallo, rode the coast almost to Genoa, and... More
