We are sailing on the Brillance of the Seas on October 17th 2004. First of all, private tours will afford us the opportunity to get into most of the major attractions without having to wait in lines. Another plus, we'll have our own personal tour guide to point out points of interest, make suggestions, find interesting places for lunch, etc. Also, when compared to some of the prices of the ship's excusions, these tend to be a great value.
At the moment, it's just the 4 of us who will be touring privately in Villefranche, Livorno (Florence/Pisa), Rome and Athens. Most private tour companies have small coaches (vans) that can accommodate up to 8 people. We have on some outstanding tour companies and we'd be happy to forward all information we have to date.
If anyone here is interested in joining our merry band, we'd be more than happy to have you join in. Please let us know what cities you might be interested in seeing with us and and we'll see if we can arrange for a truly memorable day of private touring.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
