I recently booked an excursion in Katakolon to go visit Olympia on august 8th. my wife and I went in the bus of Katakolon express and Steven, the guy who works for Katakolon-express, informed us that the guide was not available today and that I should be refunded 10 euros per person, because we only had the transfer from the port to Olympia.

He wrote me a note and signed it as a proof. He his supposed to inform you of the situation. All in all, I am very pleased with the service that shorebee provided me. It was smooth, easy and very efficient.I understand that this is something out of your control and out of control for katakolon-express. We will contact you again for our next vacations (end of october).

Thank you!

Perfect excursion, coach was parked 100 metres from the ships gangway, the tour operator Steve was great, the tour guide around Olympia was excellent. Overall, great value for money much cheaper than the tour offered on board ship, thanks for helping make our holiday special.

Thank you for the wonderful tour of Alberobello when we visited Bari on a half day excursion from MSC Divina. We found our guide Paula waiting for us and since we were a small group we enjoyed it a lot. She was fantastic, very professional and very patient with us especially since we had elderly and children with us. We surely recommend Shorebee to anyone and look forward to book again with you should we have similar excursions.

Thank you

Absolute aanrader! Wij hebben in juli met een privé tour van hen Ephese bezocht en de zowel de gids, de bus, de chauffeur en het programma waren perfect in orde. Ook timing, communicatie, ... Alles goed geregeld.

We enjoyed the tour, particularly the commentary provided by Mario. The time of four hours expected for this excursion was not achieved. It was 25 minutes short as the coach left at 8:25. This was due to the coordinator waiting for other passengers. My wife and I (and most others) were on the bus before 8:00 ready for 8:00 start. We should not have been inconvenienced because of others not making it on time.

Everything worked out really well. First of all, Olympia was very nice. On the quay there were about 60 Costa busses and a another one just outside the gate was for us. Only that is already great. Our guide was Mario, a walking encyclopedia about ancient Olympia. Fantastic and what a nice man.

Then Athens, of course a lot to see in a limited time but it worked out well. Acropolis was crowded, our guide Maria was good, she did Italian and English so this sometimes took a bit long but all in all it was fine.

It is obvious that some passengers started to get jealous about my arrangements with you so therefore the question came yesterday about Ephesus.

So this morning upon arrival in Izmir, the guide knew about our request and we managed to bring the other family too. Ephesus was impressive - I have never realized that this was such an important site, the guide, Tez, was good and we got back well in time.

So the overall conclusion of these 3 trips is fantastic, especially if we think about the very short time of organizing all this, I can only say that you did a great job which fits completely to my own way of doing things like this.

I will do some posts on Facebook whenever I find a wifi haha.

The only thing you could help me with right now are some practical tips for Istanbul tomorrow. I did not make any arrangements as I think I can manage - we have 1,5 days - but good tips are always welcome. 

Kind regards,

We are very satisfied about de excursions with Shorebee:

- The communication during the reservation was very clear and also were the vouchers very clear.

- The guides were very professional, kind, proud of their country/village/city and very enthusiastic.

They communicated very well in English and waited for us at the terminal and took care of the exact timing, that we had to be back at the ship

The excursion groups were small and personal, so we could talk with the guides and (also our children (15 and 17) learned a lot about the nice excursions that we made.

When we decide to make another cruise, we certainly book at shorebee again.

In the meantime we already shared our experience with shorebee with friends and they also wanted to book with shorebee. Thank you for the nice moments at the excursions during the shore-time of our cruise.

Your site has been extremely helpful in navigating the port activity and how to catch the metro.  We loved your tips for our Rome destination in regards to combining both of the train stations in Rome into one ticket purchase.

We found out about Shorebee a bit to late to use your services this time.  Still, we travel three to four times a year will definitely use you the next trip.

Happy traveling.

De cruise was zeer goed meegevallen, zoals altijd hé we zijn echte cruiseliefhebbers!

De excursie was heel goed, van de catacomben had ik persoonlijk verwacht dat ze groter gingen zijn ,en Monreale was ook mooi om eens te zien, maar top of the bill was onze gids Patricia ! Is echt een zeer goeie gids , ze heeft voor ons een typische lunch klaargemaakt en het was echt super !!!

Dus echt een aanrader!

Bedankt en zeker tot een volgende !
