We had a very nice trip and our guide was wonderful.  He was very informative and extremely helpful with our 4 year old son.  We would book another tour with Shore Bee in the future.

Best regards,

We enjoyed the tour. Giovanni was punctual, very friendly and informative. However, I do believe that there is room for improvement:

- It was very hard to contact the office and get confirmation for the tour

- The website has a glitch where it allowed me to book private tour for four ppl at 80-something Euros each but in the end, we had to pay 600 Euros

- We were not given guidance regarding the train system (how to validate tickets, etc.) and ended up getting a 200Euro fine

- Given that we paid 600Euros for the trip and train tickets cost 2Euros per person, I would've expected train tickets to be included to avoid the hassle of buying them at every stop. We only found out at the last stop that we could've gotten a pass for the 5 cities. I'd suggest you include that in the package.

- I understand that the van cannot be driven from one city to the other, but it would be nice if the guide could walk around with us on the first city and do a short tour.

I hope you can find value in my comments.


Please find herewith my feedback.


Excellent excursion, well organised, all in time, nice guide with a lot of knowledge.

One remark: there was no time for lunch and we were not prepared to take lunch with us.


Excellent excursion, well organised, all in time, nice guide with a lot of knowledge.

Bus was a few minutes too late; knowing the traffic density in Athens this can happen.


Good driver Marco, kept the speed limit, has a lot of knowledge, chauvinistic (we liked that).

Well organised his route to be back in time for city visit at the end of the tour.

We heard already in Katakolon that there was an excursion organised for Santorini.

I was confused since I discussed our wish with you to participate in ‘the’ Santorini excursion; which was in the end not possible.

We now booked this tour via MSC for €92,- per person times 6= €552,-

Overall conclusion: well organised, safe in terms of risk and time, value for money.

I have passed on my positive comment already to my travel agent and to Zeetours, the biggest travel agent for Cruises in Holland.

Trust to have been of service and thank you for ShoreBee services,

Best regards,

Op 23 mei 2017 hadden wij een excursie geboekt naar Pompeï. Vanaf de boot moesten we om 07.45 uur aanwezig zijn op het plein waar de hostesses ons opvingen.

Van onze groep bleef een echtpaar onvindbaar, maar daar werd wel 45 minuten opgewacht. Dit voelde erg irritant.

Zodoende vertrokken we ook later dan gepland naar Pompeï. De terugreis verliep wel volgens schema, zodat we na de rondwandeling door het mooie Pompeï geen tijd meer hadden om wat te drinken of de kraampjes te bezoeken.

De Engelstalige gids in Pompeï was prima hoewel hij wel heel veel te vertellen had; soms wat overbodige dingen.

Al met al hebben we genoten van deze leerzame excursie.

Shorebee is zeker een aanrader om excursies bij te boeken; zeker als je het vergelijkt met de prijzen die de cruise-maatschappijen durven te vragen.

We enjoyed our tours very much. All of the guides were very knowledgeable about the history of the cities we visited, and their English was perfect so we had no problem understanding them.. Very good value for what we paid.

I will recommend to my friends.

Thank You,

I wanted to drop you a line to let you know of the service my family and I experienced in Europe for each of the six excursions we booked through your company.  We returned home a couple of days ago after an 11 day Mediterranean Cruise with NCL.   I could not have been happier with the pick up, transfer, drivers, guides and return to the ship.  AMAZING at all stops!!  We LOVED Marissa in Athens. She was wonderfully entertaining and involved all of us in the historical stories.  Serena in Marseille was informative, friendly and fun.  Tony (our driver) in Florence (Sorrento and Pompei) was so charming.  He reserved a table for our lunch at a beautiful restaurant, stopped at Limoncello and laughed with us as we joked around.  Our guide in Rome was extraordinarily informative.  We saw so many things and learned so much.  I apologize that I cannot recall her name.

My mom and mother-in-law were so impressed and have not stopped talking about it.  "What GREAT service we had!".  I WILL be spreading the word that ShoreBee is the company to go through to book any shore excursion.  Thank you so much for making our vacation so stress free and enjoyable!!!

A group of ten friends used your services from Bari to Alberobello.  We were from MSC Fantasia.  We were met by your tour guide exactly where your instructions had indicated.She was very pleasant and spoke very good English.  She provided us with a good clear commentary of the sights of Bari and the villages we passed en-route to Alberobello. The transport was quite comfortable.  Our guide explained by the local economy, agriculture and history. 

We arrived in Alberobello and it began to rain.  Our guide arranged transport to take us from the coach park to the village centre.  She was very responsive to the group requests and questions.  She guided us around the historic village centre and provided background.  Unfortunately it rained extremely hard and we asked to abandon the tour.  Our guide was very good.  She checked this was the wish of all the group.  She negotiated a cafe we could wait in out of the rain while she arranged for the transport.  This took a little time as all the trips were calling upon the transport at the same time.

On the way back she checked if we wanted to visit another site on the return journy .  We declined and carried on back to the ship.  At all times she remained pleasant, cheerful and helpful.  Please thank her on our behalf.

We will use your company's services again.

Kind regards

We had a great time in Livorno (Pisa, Florence) and Naples (Amalfi and Positano).

The drivers were courteous, and we really enjoyed our trips! We think that we made really good decisions and will book again if we visit there.

Thank you very much for your kind assistance!!

Thanks so much about the info you send us for Messina and Taormina.  This train worked out perfectly. Thanks again!

I’m back from holiday cruise on the Navigator of the Seas. Everything went very well. We had a very good holiday and good excursions.

I will start recommending Shorebee as a company for reliable shore excursions.  Thank you very much.

Best Regards and hopefully till next time!
