At around 1.39 in this shows the ladder and fish running it. It was the last day of July and they were easy to spot, although I don't think this would count as heavy numbers.All the best, Tony

Hi Kim

We just did this at those lovely ports. If you want to go into Diocletian's Palace (Split) you'll need a bit of local currrency from the bureau de change just outside it, and walking up to...

I'm sure we got on the metro at Matosinhos, which is about 400 yards from the port. A return from there to the city was very cheap.

In case it gives you some ideas of what you want to see, I did all those on my own and made videos of the days, which can be found from the GREECE link in my signature below. All the best, Tony

It's a very pleasant city to do on your own. This was our few hours there. That boat trip on Douro runs pretty regularly and costs about €10 pp. All the best, Tony

Thanks Debbie, I really do enjoy living in St Ives and know how lucky I am. Gibraltar is a superb port of call, one of my all-time favourites and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. All the best,...

The Ho-ho service at Nice is good way of seeing beyond the Old Town. When we did this in 2013 it was about €20. We walked from the tender dock at Cannes to the station and took the train to Nice. All...

Yes, exactly so. We found the lady at the Tourist Info booth very helpful, and she also gave us an excellent map of the city. If you take the funicular up to the Chateau Frontenac area the man...

There is a very good set up for this. As you approach the exit to the cruise terminal you'll see the very helpful Tourist Info booth, who will order a cab for you. Ours came within 10 minutes and the...

Also living on the coast, I agree with that. Peggy's Cove is perfectly pleasant and we did enjoy our time there but as a spectacle it's not that dramatic in normal summer weather. I did go, as part...

To be honest, I didn't know about this rule but took a piece of fruit off the ship each day. As they don't do a bag search, unless they have sniffer dogs as you leave I don't see how it could be...

In case it's any help, this was our day there, which is more option 1. The city is very pleasant to walk around but there's not a lot to see. You'll certainly get your exercise if you walk to the top...

This is what we did - you will need a bit of local money for the palace but there is a bureau de change a few yards from it. The beach we went to is nearby too. All the best, Tony

If it's any help from about 2.00 in this shows what we did there. We only had half a day as we went to Dockyard in the afternoon after quick swim at TB. All the best, Tony

I am doing this from memory and can't recall if it was exactly 3 hours. You agree the 3 hours at the start and if it drifted 10-15 minutes due to traffic or whatever our man didn't care. I am sure he...

Hi Linda

This is that trip, but train first. We did it that way to have extra time to walk around Skagway. I don't think it makes any difference to the day, overall. All the best, Tony
