The area was spectacular and the views amazing, if you have the opportunity it is a real gem to see and experience in person. Be aware though, it’s really expensive so be prepared. The only issue with the tour, it’s not worth the money. We walked for over 2 hours and seen the sites of Portofino and then took a boat ride to Margarite which was pretty and walked around this area. Hardly worth the $500+.
