Default European/ Mediterranean Shore Excursions?

My husband and I are planning a European -or- Mediterranean Cruise next year and were just wondering about the typical cost of shore excursions. We are not the adventurous types ( so no "see the city on your own" for us) and would prefer to stick w/ what's being offered. We just want to be prepared and not get sticker shock. We've cruised three times before, so I know that shore excursion costs can vary/range, but if you have cruised in either location before, could you give me an idea of the highest as well as the lowest and maybe an average? Thanks for your help

Talking Mediterranean Shore excursions

Prices of excursions are extremely variable! Taking the ship's half day bus tour around the city may cost something like $50-60. Hiring a private guide for a full day can easily run $250 per person.

Here are some of our Med and Europe ruises with some excursions we have really liked:

Default Private tours

We have just come back and we had all private tours except in Corfu... We met up with other couples on line and found the tours were much less $$$ than the ships tours..We were in large air conditioned vans..no waiting for a bus load of people. What ports are y ou going to
