  1. We were on the Venice to Athens route. But in addition to whatever you do on your early day, the first day on the ship, Viking should provide a shuttle. The panoramic tour portion is very limited, so there won't be much duplication. If you take the included early, you'll have the remainder of the day to see more sights and shuttle back. After the museum visit, we walked on our own to the central market and then the Plaka district. Shuttle picks up from the nearby Hadrian's Arch to get back to the ship.
  2. We did two separate Taste of Athens food tours with Marina T. from Tours By Locals this May. Totally customized and a great insight into local customs, neighborhoods and authentic foods.
  3. Thanks Andy. As you know, My Viking Journey doesn't show excursions yet (too early for our cruise) and the generic website doesn't show prices. Very helpful. Mike
  4. Seems that our 2020 Viking cruise will dock at White Bay terminal. Do you know if Viking provides a shuttle from the ship to the city center?
  5. Thanks for the offer. Canadian $ is OK. Here are a few we've been looking at: Sydney ---------- Sydney Opera House, Harbor & Bondi Beach Hobart Tasmania --------- Richmond & Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary Dunedin ----------- Otago Wildlife Cruise Napier -------- Classic Car Ride & Guided Walk Sheep Station & Te Mata Peak Rotorua (Tauranga) -------------------------- Geothermal Rotorua Auckland ------------ Sky Tower & Sea Life Aquarium
  6. Trying to do some advance planning. I can view the generic descriptions on the Viking website. Does anybody have the specific pricing for the optional excursions on this itinerary? We depart February 2020 and won't see this detail until closer to November/December. Also any must do's (or don'ts). Thanks Mike
  7. I've have the attached that I use as a reference PV slider rooms.pdf
  8. We're on this trip next February with same pre-extension to Port Douglas and Great Barrier Reef. We're looking to get a head start on excursion planning, especially the Viking optionals. Any chance you have a list of the Viking options with prices? I expect there will be changes between now and then, but it'll help with planning.
  9. Anybody have a recommendation for which direction and best months to sail? Rain; temperature; mosquitoes; lake conditions? We're considering Viking's 'Waterways of the Tsars'.
  10. Great info! You remember where you purchased the skip the line ticket book? Thanks much.
  11. Sometimes Viking can be a little vague with excursion details. The Museum is included with our post-cruise extension in Athens, so we thought the panoramic coupled with the Acropolis could be an option. The descriptions online seem similar between the 'Acropolis & Plaka District by Foot' and 'Full Acropolis'. Can you confirm if you had a guide at the Acropolis visit or were you on your own?
  12. Does anyone know if the optional Viking excursion 'Acropolis & Plaka District by Foot' includes a guided walking tour while at the Acropolis. Or is it entirely self-guided?
  13. This is our cruise as well. Viking Atla B-N and like you, we're in Budapest early. We have a private tour booked as well as Viking's optional Taste of Budapest. As long as we stay overnight on the ship in Budapest on the 9th, our private tour should be OK.
  14. They're on MyVikingJourney now. Just saw them today.
  15. That wasn’t my understanding when booking through Viking Air. Just checked our Guest Statement and on page 4 with the day by day itinerary, our non-deviation arrival includes a transfer. Shows up as a separate line with a car/bus icon.
