We tried to make arrangements to do a boat trip of Cinque Terre without success. We decided to take the ferry from town to town and explore on our own. On the way to the ferry, we saw a man reading in his boat. With nothing to lose, I asked him if he gave boat tours and he said his tour boat was in dock because the sea was a little too rough but if we would like, he would take us in his outboard boat. We settled on the price, got in the boat and had the pleasure of meeting Stefano of Matilde Navigation. We had a wonderful ride and informative trip of CT. We asked Stefano if he would drop us in Verazza for lunch and pick us up in about an hour to go back to Monterosso. Not a problem. He had no idea of who we were, no money had changed hands and we had our lunch and retuned to find him at the dock an hour later. What a terrific trusting happy person. The trip was perfect, the price was right and we made a friend. Great day in Italia.
