  5. We will be in Key West on April 16, 2018 on a cruise stop. Is it advisable to get advance tickets? On days with ships in port, how crowded is the HOHO? Is it really possible to use it to go from place to place? The reason I ask is that we had a bad experience with a HOHO in Reykjavik recently where it was really not possible to get off if you wanted any chance of getting back on without waiting for at least an hour. Thanks. Doug

    Great suggestion Kazu! We are on the Prinsendam next October for two bucket list cruises - Black Sea and Holy Land! Georgina sent me your info on tour guides in the Black Sea - very helpful! We were on the Oosterdam with her and with your neighbor - Glenn - last April/May! Great times! Your name is legendary! :D Doug

    Kazu - you have me worried? Are you speculating or is the Prinsendam on the "block" to be sold? It is our favorite ship! Doug
  10. We used Rui Mederios of Azores Private Tours October 2015. I had arranged it for 6 of us from the Roll Call on the Zuidderdam. Excellent tour. Here's the TripAdvisor review of the company. My review is the most recent. http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g189135-d2368576-Reviews-Rui_Medeiros_Azores_Private_Tours-Ponta_Delgada_Sao_Miguel_Azores.html Doug

    Can I help with any Malaga queries

    Thanks Campolady...fabulous thread on Malaga! I have lots of questions. :D Last time we were in Malaga on a cruise we rented a car at the train station and drove to Ronda - had been there on a driving tour in 1974 and had always wanted to go back - but - this time we want to see Malaga. We will be in Malaga on the Zuiderdam on Tuesday October 27. I have read that Mondays are closing days for museums so I think we are ok to get to the Picasso Museum? Do you recommend advance tickets from their website? Plan on using the HOHO to get our bearings in the City first. Have read somewhere (?) that the signs for the stops of the HOHO are hard to find - some sort of City restrictions? Your experience? In some cities, once you get off to see a site it can be hard to get back on the HOHO - sometimes full buses. Do you know if this is an issue in Malaga? And finally the most important question - we are addicted to Spanish Hot Chocolate and Churros. Any places you'd recommend? Thanks! Doug
