I used them years ago in Barbados...they were a reputable company, and, many people I know used them in the past.

They are a very large, independent, tour company that contracts different tours (just like the cruise lines) in many areas around the world.

I have used them in the past and a couple of the tours we did were with guides that worked for other cruise lines when they were in port.

They are good but you basically get a "ship tour" experience.

Take care,
Mike

Default CRUISE TOURS

That is an honest answer.. We have been fortunate to have and still have a great driver/guide in Barcelona, used Claudio in Rome for tuscanny...and somebody else in Lisbon.. I am looking at these tours for Alexandria and Israel...right now Celebrity has a much better tour than they offer..but in Alexandria.. I like their tour.. so go figure.. willhave to see if we can pick up some smaller companies.. Thanks for your input

I've used Port Promotions to do tours for our group cruises, and they have always been reliable.

If you want a more custom and more private tour, it'll cost you extra, but they can arrange those quite easily.

Good to hear...there is one place I want to go to that Celebrity is not offering next year...and I'm sure I could put together a group to see the Chagall Windows... a dream to see them in person for me and maybe Masada
