Cinque Terre DCL v's DIY

To those who have done Cinque Terre themselves and those who did it with DCL.

Any experiences from recent Med cruisers, I have read a handful of positive reviews of the DCL trip. I would like and prefer to be able to DIY this one and do it for cheaper than the $585 DCL cost.

We are a family of 5 with 3 boys aged 5 to 9.

Pros and Cons for both for recent cruisers would be appreciated. Getting on a DCL trip with the boat collecting and dropping from and to the Magic is a definite Pro for DCL, but cost is a major Con.

Just thought I'd post a link to this tour company in Malta whose prices seem very reasonable -especially for the Turkish Schooner trip ,which is on the boat Fernandes I believe - its roughly half the cost of DCL's prices and will be the exact same trip. :

Pick up and drop off are included in the price.

You should search the Cinque terre on your own thread, it is very informative. We did it last year for 9 euro pp. It was super easy, the locals point you to the train station which is only about a 10-15 minute walk. They will give you a map when you buy your ticket.
