Highlight of our trip!
Fabulous excursion! Email contact was very easy. Our tour guide Mariarita was waiting for us at the designated place & time. She led us to a very nice air conditioned van & had water & a “surprise” (cookies) for us. It was the first time in Sicily for our family of 8 ranging in age from 23-60. Mariarita spoke perfect English & was both informative & entertaining. We loved both Castelmola & Taormina but Cantine Don Saro was the highlight of our day. It was like Sunday dinner with a big Italian family! Thank you Mariarita & Don Saro for a very memorable day!
Dear ShoreBee Team,
I will definitely recommend ShoreBee to my friends and would definitely ask for Zara should I ever visit Cannes/Monaco.
Very good service.
The overall experience was really good. I will, for sure, use your services again in future.
The trip was well organized but I would suggest that the tour organizer meet you in the town in Pisa because it is confusing finding the bus when there is so many busses. They took us to the first store with a toilet - if they waited there it would have made it less stressful.
We started the morning by departing over 1.5 hours late from the cruise terminal due to traffic issues at the Port. This made heading to Sorrento and Positano highly challenging time wise. We ended up skipping going to Positano (only saw it from a vista view point), turning around and heading into Sorrento (only to have 20 mins for a quick stop before we had to leave), and then head to Pompeii.
Our driver tried to make the best of the situation. But you could tell he wasn’t happy about the traffic. He also spoke limited English which made the tour difficult.
The tour operator tried to make up for the poor experience in the morning by providing us with a complimentary walking guide at Pompeii. This guide was fantastic and made our two hours at Pompeii fabulous.
Our driver then gave us a quick 15 mins tour of Naples sights by car before heading back to the Port.
All in all, the tour operator really couldn’t have done anything different. Except maybe tell us upfront that the itinerary we had planned was possibly too challenging for the day. And while our driver really did try to provide a good experience, the lack of English made it difficult. In the end we used google translate app to help aid understanding.
A great afternoon at Pompeii saved the day.
