We are a fun-loving couple in our early 50's. Hope to hear from you! :D
We did some research sent a number of emails and at this point what we have done is booked with the ones on the ship, and plan to cancel if we get responses from the other tour operators, but we have to be careful my father is traveling with us, although we are in our 40/50's he is 80!
Right now we are waiting for the company Driver in Rome this is who we want to use, for we have heard good things from them, the other company that we are talking too via email is Italy Limo, still waiting to hear back from them.
Right now we are doing: Monaco and Monte Carlo in the a.m. and then the French Riviera in the p.m.. For Florence we are doing Panoramic florence then we are hoping in the afternoon to go to pisa and a small town via a cab in the afternoon, for the times on the ship don't work for us. Athens our family is split up, they haven't been there so doing panaromic athens and then plakka in p.m. we are doing the Athens and Cape Sounion (if you have something interesting booked there we could look at it with you. Santorini we are doing the village of Oia then in the p.m. will wonder around the town Fira that is right there! For Dubronvnik our group is split some doing the panoramic one and my husband cousin and her husband are doing the 4x4. Venice i have booked just for my Dad and i the panoramic boat cruise, and my husand is going to take our family on a walking tour! For Venice it is all right there, and it is about walking to the highlights and taking water taxes, we will do gondala as well but not through the ship! That we can negotiate on our own.
Are you spending time in Barcelona first? They apparently have great hop on hop off buses which we will use there!
Where are you flying from?
Talk to you later!
Bye for now,,,Kris
