A guide, who changed the schedule, on the spur of the moment, to accommodate whims was priceless. Sinsia fit the bill on our recent trip to the Cinque Terre. We decided to spend more time in Pisa. It did not leave enough time to visit all five, therefore we visited uno Terre, Monterosso. It included a leisurely waterside lunch and time to photograph the rockbound coat line. Sinisa's impeccably maintained vehicle and his careful driving created a relaxing atmosphere for the day.
