They are just a reseller. They do not operate tours themselves. If you want to book a private tour, it's a good idea to book with the operator themselves. You can ask them more detailed questions...

They are not a tour operator, they are just an agent. You are far better off booking and dealing with a company that actually operates its own tours.

I think so too. There doesn't seem to be much work going on by the old fort now and the new dropoff spot has a small cafe. I somehow don't see them going back to the old place.

Athens itself is about 8 miles inland. You will be docking at the port of Piraeus. From Piraeus to Glyfada beach should take about 20 minutes.

You won't get public transport to take you to Mount Teide, you'll need to hire a car and get a taxi. It's quite a long way and there is no way you're going to get back in time to do the boat trip. ...

P&O gave up 'silver service' some time ago, a few years I think. I don't know of any cruise line that has it nowadays, though some of the very expensive ones may do. Anyway, 'silver service'...

I'm confused about the free shuttle because there is no mention of it on the Marseille port's own website. They just mention the 35 bus.
