We booked the Portofino-Santa Margherita Ligure combo. I loved both places. We took a tender to Portofino, and then a walking tour of Portofino. It was no problem for us, but some of the people on the excursion were not prepared for the amount of stairs/uphill climbing that was involved. I recommend getting gelato from the super-hot gelato guys next door to the Louis Vuitton store!
We then took a ferry to SML, and ended up ditching our tour guide and exploring on our own once we knew the ferry and tender schedule. She was focused too much on detail of architecture on the buildings- we wanted to shop, eat, and explore!

Overall a 5, but the main complaint being we did not have enough time to really explore San Margherita. The water taxi/bus service to where our tender docks in Portofino made it somewhat difficult to spend anytime without being concerned about missing the tender. May not be the best excuse but the only one we've got. The walk to the Portofino Lighthouse was amazing and we really enjoyed it. Again not enough time to really explore. Can't wait to return.
