Sinisa met us as arranged at the port building to start our day exploring the CinqueTerra. We began on a tourist boat to Manarola. We had a delightful day exploring several of the towns by boat. Part of our day was a delicious lunch overlooking the sea. Sinisa was very knowledgeable about life in this area. He is a skilled guide, very able to share his knowledge and adapt to the specific needs of our group. Sinisa answered all of our questions. We would highly recommend him as an excellent guide.
