Portofino is a beautiful little city. The only painful thing was the long trip to get there. The bus ride was over an hour and then we had to take a boat to Portofino. By the time we got there, we only had a little over an hour to enjoy it. We left the group and sat along the water to have a nice lunch with a bottle of wine. Good excursion, just not enough time to explore.

We arrived in breathtaking Portofino and was given a brief overview of the area. We had time to ourselves where we climbed to the top of the hill to see the church and the views. We were able to go shopping around the area, only wish we could have stayed longer. When we finished our tour we took the shuttle into Genoa and walked around, we ate pesto at Eataly-which was fantastic. The entire tour was 5 hours.

This was a brilliant excursion and the guide was first class - with English and German speaking. The views from the journey was lovely and a trip on a ferry was used for the last half of the journey again with beautiful views of the harbour. There was plenty of free time to explore Portofino which is very beautiful with lots of shops and photo opportunities. Have an ice cream at the opposite side of the harbour.

Short bus ride to meet up with a ferry to take us to Portofino. Guide provided us with some information about the area to and from the ferry. Once at Portofino we walked around a bit then had some time on our own. Since we were there after the season a lot was closed, but you could imagine what a hopping place it must be in the summer.

this was an excursion to St Margarita by coach with a boat transfer to Portofino. The weather was poor, which resulted in a separate excursion of a scenic boat trip to Portofino being amended such that everyone was coached to St Margarita for transfers from there. This resulted in everyone arriving at the same time and trying to get on the same boat. The boat was packed, no seats were available, and we had to stand in what turned out to be very rough seas with little to hold on to. It was dangerous! Celebrity did quickly provide a full refund though

Great tour, about as much "on your own time" as could be expected. Beautiful, really liked the town
