Cinque Terre from La Spezia - Shore Excursion

I will be taking the cruise ship Celebrity Reflection and it will halt at LA Spezia port on Aug 16. We wish to tour the Cinque Terre villages on that day.

I noticed that the tour companies charge pretty hefty amounts for a tour.

Can anyone recommend a tour company which is reasonable or we are better off doing it at our own?

Also will it be too crowded in August as I am not sure if August is the peak season or not?

I would very strongly advise that you avoid the Cinque Terre in August. It is peak holiday period. On days when a cruise ship is in La Spezia, the villages will be crowded to the point of being unpleasant.

However, it is not difficult to get to the train station and travel by train.
