Questions & AnswersAsk a question
How do I contact CTTours regarding reserving a private tour of Cinque Terre for a party of four on August 4, 2017 departing from the port at Ls Spezia. We are particularly interested in seeing at least four of the five "lands" and would be very pleased if we could arrange to have Umberto as our guide. Thank you, Anne Marie Bird

I am wanting to do a shore excursion to Cinque Terre in May next year from Livorno (on Princess cruise) . Several posts have highly recommended Umberto from Cinque Terre Tours and Shore Excursions. Please can someone provide me with a link to this company as it does not seem to be coming up on Goggle for me - I only get the reviews, or other companies.
