The transfer to Oia by Speesboat & Return to Fira by bus is very smooth and comfortable. It allows us to spend flexible time at Oia. Thank you, Shorebee!

We were met off our cruise ship, NCL Pearl, and quickly directed to our guide. 

We had a wonderful trip to Mount Etna and Taormina. The day was informative, well timed and our guide Mariarita, was fun and engaging. Throughout the trip we had little surprises involving local produce.

Hello,

First of all, we enjoyed the tour very much, despite:
- It was very difficult to find our tour guide. Maybe you can imagine 50 or so different tour guides and taxi drivers all trying to sell their tour. A large banner with clear tour- or company name would have helped! Also it felt very strange that colleagues of the  same tour company seems not very willing to help finding our guide. 
- After a small delay leaving the port we arrived on time in Pompeii. It was a bit disappointing that the English tour became an English - Italian tour. An Italian family joined our English group and therefore all commentaries where in English and Italian. The last language seems to be needing a lot more sentences to say the same and in the heat of Pompeii concentration became a thing because of the long long Italian commentary. Better not combine different languages in very warm climates especially no Italian.
- First the airconditioning and later the whole bus broke down (overheated). When touring in warm climates make sure tour operators stop, or arrange different transportation when troubles occur. I think the driver went on too long with overheated motor, guests and tour guide. The problem later on was quickly resolved with other busses and nothing but compliments afterwards but worse could have happened with a full bus with a lot of kids on a small mountain road. In such events better be safe then sorry!!!
Again, it was a great tour and Veronike was a great host but I think there is little room for improvement especially regarding finding your right guide and combining different (large) languages in one group.
Kind regards,

H there

The excursion to Pisa was extremely well organised, easy to use and pleasant. I would certainly recommend the trip – great value for money

Many thanks & regards

M’y kids and I enjoyed very much our tour. It was a beautiful place. We are happy we chose this tour. 
The stop st the pearl factory was not the greatest but at least it was in a nice spot so you can walk around if you didn’t want to shop. 
Great value for money

Very well organised and extremely punctual service.. extremely good value for money in comparison to the organised cruise price to Pisa

Yes. Thank you. Great experience. We had heard that the queues can be very long for the cable car. As it was ours was the only ship in and we were able to catch one of the first tenders so there wasn’t an issue but we still really enjoyed the boat and it enabled us to see oia as well as Fira and we still got the cable car back down  an excellent day and I would recommend it

Excellent tour will use again the lady who was our guide was very informative sorry I have lost her name which I wrote down once again great tour at the right price

We had a lovely day with Thierry. He was friendly and engaging. We enjoyed the tour. Thanks.
