We used this company on 3 separate days, out of Genoa...port antico. We went to Camogli, my favorite, to San Fruttuoso, to Portofino, to Vernazza, to Monterosso. We decided to visit all of the cities by way of a water taxi, and very much enjoyed our decision. It does take longer to get to your destination, but seeing the beautiful... More

These boat tours (Portofino and Cinque Terre) are very good value but, for an overseas tourist, they can be quite dull. All explanations about the visited sites (other than the instructions when to get on or off) are made in Italian only. Unless you speak the language well, you are missing a lot. Shame, as allowing for foreigners would make... More

Overall, well worth the €20 each to see the coastline from a different angle. Positives: - fantastic and helpful service when booking tickets - clean boat with helpful crew - plenty of places to view the coastline - depending on your journey there are plenty of stops to get off/on at - on board facilities include toilets and drinks to...

Staff at the hospital I worked at recommended this trip and it was a great way to spend my one free day while in Genoa. Boat leaves at 9am and returned about 6:30. It stopped to pick up passengers in Camogli and another small port and stopped for an hour or so visit at Vernazza and then for several hours... More

We were looking for a day trip along the coast by boat so we decided to try the Golfo Paradiso offering. My wife and I took a 6 a.m. train from Imperia Porto Maurizio to Genoa which took about 1.5 hours. We arrived in Genoa just in time to catch the Boat at 9:00 a.m.! The trip included stops by...

Our second stop was San Fruttuoso where we also had an hour to look around. Then our last stop was at Portofino ,arriving approx 12.30. We had a lovely meal here and... More

In April you can have the chance to take a sun bath on the beach of small stone in the paradise bay. Several drink and eat possibilities in front of the sea.

Camogli was a fun few hour trip after spending a half-day in Portofino. We rode the public bus from Rapallo to Portofino and hopped off at Santa Margherita Ligure on the return trip. We climbed the steps (steep) to the SML station and caught the train to Camogli. It's only about a five minute ride. Camogli is a picturesque fishing... More

We had the opportunity to visit Monterosso and Vernazza in Cinque Terre and Santa Margheritta, Portofino and Camogli on the Portofino peninsula. We stayed 5 nights in Camogli and we were happy we did--perfect scenery, no crowds, no traffic, lots of fine restaurants on a car-free promenade. But don't just walk the promenade and think you've seen Camogli. Take a... More

Nice beaches (rock not sand) very clean, both the beach and the water. Several restaurants quite cheap, and places to rent kayaks and another kind of boats. Mandatory visit if you go to Genova. Reachable by train from Genova, 45 minutes 2.7 one way ticket
