Thanks.  We had a great cruise and very nice day in the Naples area with Umberto.  He did a great service for us as a driver.  While he clearly brought us to his buddies in the other tourist trades he steered us right every time. We should have listened to him when we did not (and got the guide).

Good service, all was as expected.  Thanks,

Thank you for organizing our tour. Everything was perfect and the driver, Luca, was very informative and helpful.

Regards

Just want to drop you an email to say a big thank you for all your help on our Paris excursion.

It went really well and all the guests really enjoyed it. The guide Veronique was amazing and the coach driver gave them a really good tour of Paris.

So thank you so much and we will of course keep you in mind for further group excursions.

Kind regards

I would be only too delighted to write a hugely positive review of our Amalfi coast tour but to do so without naming our brilliant tour guide – a delightful young lady– would be an injustice. Unfortunately, her name escapes my wife and I and we were wondering could you provide the name? She met us at Naples port and largely due to her knowledge and friendly manner we enjoyed our best ever shore tour. She’s worth her weight in gold to ShoreBee.

Kind regards,

We had a lovely cruise around the Mediterranean and the private excursions arranged through ShoreBee were a joy, as always.  It’s so nice being greeted personally at port and taking a personal excursion in an air conditioned car in hot countries, and often to places where coaches are allowed, for example to the Vatican in Rome.  On all our private excursions the drivers took us an alternative return routes from some fabulous vantage points so that we could stop to take photos of our ship in port.  And on every occasion we were back at our ship, sat by the pool with a drink in our hand before the cruise excursion coaches had returned! We’ll definitely be using ShoreBee again for our next cruise excursions!

As a side issue (and not part of my review above), we were unable to visit Monte Carlo due to an overnight storm which left the Captain unable to use the tenders in the morning to take us to port as the sea was too rough.  So we headed off down the coast the St Tropez instead.  I did contact the excursion company we were booked with (see attached) who were very grateful as they could stop the driver from turning up at port.  They said they would contact ShoreBee accordingly, so that you could advise on the cancellation policy and whether there was any refund entitielment?

Many thanks and regards

 

Thank you for organising this excursion for us. We enjoyed everything immensely.

We booked a private morning tour of Ephesus (3 hours) from the port of Kusadasi. We were on the Celebrity Equinox cruise ship. Rather than book an expensive excursion on a coach with the cruise line, I booked a private tour on the internet. The booking was made through Shore Bee the cost was 118 euros, less than we would have paid the cruise line to be herded onto a coach. We were collected by Benjamin, who was polite and very informative. The price of the tour included the entrance fee. Considering that Ephesus was about 35 minutes drive, the excursion price was reasonable. There was a driver, so that Benjamin could give us his full attention. There was just the two of us. Benjamin was professional, friendly and answered all our questions. He spoke good English and spent the full 3 hours with us. Ephesus was astonishing and fascinating. We had not realised that the Terraced Houses were within the Ephesus enclosure. We would advise that you ask the guide to wait while you go into them. There is plenty of time to do this in a morning and you can pay the extra entrance fee when you are there. We did not opt to go to see the carpet weaving or the leather manufacturing. We felt that this was going to be a sales pitch,but we do wish we had seen the Terraced Houses. Do not miss Ephesus. We took an umbrella with us and I found it useful as there is no shade walking through Ephesus and even in May it was quite hot. Thank you ShoreBee. We will definitely recommend you to others.

Thank you for your excellent service. I'm very impressed and shall recommend you to our local travelling agencies. 

We are back from our cruise and had a wonderful time. Your excursions were very well organized and we are glad that we were able to go on them. Unfortunately there was a bad storm in the Mediterranean and the ship could not enter the Palermo harbour. To our great regret we missed the Monreale Cathedral Tour and Catacombs.

Instead the ship went a day too soon to Naples. I phoned World Tours Naples and fortunately we did go on the Naples Group Tour, a day early. It was a great tour and we are glad that we were able to reschedule it.

Thank you for all you have done.

Kind regards,

I would especially like to recommend Francesco of the Cagliari Tour. He really did much more than expected. Before the tour, he sent me a WhatsApp with his photo standing in front of his car so I could know what he looked like. He was waiting there an hour early.

He showed us videos on his iPad of the customs of Sardinia and he had laminated diagrams and information about the history. His tour was very informative and he is a very nice and friendly person. He has today even e-mailed photos of us and our tour.

Thank you very much.

Kind Regards,
