Van,

That's a great pair of itineriaries on a fantastic ship.

When the ship calls at the port of La Guaira, Panama, for tours to Caracas, be sure to take the tour the Bavarian colony ("Colonia Tavar"). That's not a port where you want to go ashore on your own.

Tks. Although we have been to Caracas before. Will consider your suggestion.

Van,

The tour to the Bavarian Colony passes through some beautiful scenery, including a national park, en route and it includes a great German meal, a pottery demonstration, and some free time to explore the "Colonia Tovar" on your own. The "Colonia Tovar" is immaculately maintained, too, with no evidence whatsoever of the poverty that you would encounter elsewhere in Venezuela. The "Colonia Tovar" also has a faxcinating history, which your guide will relate en route. To this day, the population is predominantly of Bavarian descent and the Bavarian heritage and culture are quite evident.

Norm.
