  1. From where you will dock, you can get a city bus that within 6-7 minutes takes you to Vigo Urzáiz train station and it takes then 1.30 hour to reach Santiago de Compostela by train.
  2. You're welcome! Great! We had Carmelo as our driver and he was excellent!
  3. Tanah Lot Temple is also very interesting temple on the West coast of Bali, amazing place especially at sunset!
  4. Go to Ubud, the artists and paintors village...you can get nice paintings representing balinese landscapes, dances.....
  5. Right, sorry! I forgot the most important one: Narita!
  6. The 2 main ones are Tokyo Haneda and Osaka. It depends where you will end up your cruise.
  7. What a fantastic area of Barcelona to walk around! We liked so much Calle Avinyo with its boutiques and great cocktail at "La Burnessa" bar. La Sagrada Familia a must!
  8. We just came back from a wonderful 7 days Mediterranean cruise aboard of "Star Legend" from Barcelona to Civitavechia....what a wonderful experience aboard of this small cruise ship (we usually cruise much bigger ones), service on board is incredible! When we ended the cruise at Rome port, we took a fantastic tour, on our way to Rome, where we previously have been, to discover the "Etruscan area", visiting 2 small villages of Tuscania and Tarquinia, again booking with Shore Excursions in Italy.net, the transportation tour company we previously used last year and again we had another great day with them! We visited the interesting Etruscan museum and their tombs in the largest burial area. Great farm stop for lunch and wine tasting in the countryside not far from the city! If you already visited Rome, I suggest you to tour this beautiful area not far from the port and Rome either....
  9. I can recommend you "Aloha Vietnam Travel" we used in the past and we had a great tour! Funny and informative guide!
  10. I recommend you "Sorbillo" Pizzeria were we were taken for the best pizza in Naples!
  11. When in the past we docked at Messina port, we hired a private driver through "Sicily-tours.it" and it was great! They picked us up at the port and drove us to Mount Etna, where we could take a chairlift to a higher part of the volcano, then they drove us to Taormina where we had free time for lunch (our driver suggested us a good local restaurant) and walked through the city visiting the greek theatre and having magnificent views towards the volcano again! I highly recommend you them!
  12. You can contact "myguidepattaya.com" who should also provide private transfers from Laem Chabang port to Pattaya.
  13. You can contact "Hello Singapore Tours.com" we used them for a private tour. Reliable company!
  14. We went to a nice beach 10/15 mnts far from Porto Vecchio, called "Cala Rossa", that you can reach renting a scooter in town or hiring a taxi that should wait for you in order to drive you back to the port. You have some bars there. Otherwise, you can just walk around Porto Vecchio which is a small town, easy to walk through.
  15. I would suggest you to wait for the sunset near the Tajo (Tagus) River from the "Maat" museum or to take a 2 hours sunset river cruise that you can book through "Get your Guide".
  16. Hi, free wifi was available! This former topic give interesting info regarding Nassau Cruise Port: https://www.cruisecritic.com/articles/nassau-cruise-port-parking-address-amenity-info
  17. Have a look at the following "Cruise Critic" link: https://boards.cruisecritic.co.uk/topic/2957502-are-there-casinos-in-freeport-bahamas/
  18. I would recommend you "Myguidepattaya.com" . They picked us up at Laem Chabang port for a tour of Bangkok Royal Palace and Wat Pho temple with its reclining Buddha statue and other highlights in the city plus a river tour before dropping us back to the ship around 06.00 pm. Good rate and a clean vehicle!
  19. We rented a golf cart on San Pedro Island through "One Love Golf Cart Rental", centrally located office and we had lots of fun driving through the entire island! We paid $35 for an 8 hours rental.
  20. You cannot be wrong with "Your Siam Raep Guide" company! We had a great tour with them!
  21. Last October, during our trip to Rome, we took a private tour to visit Tivoli gardens and we stopped at Hadrians Villa and Gregorian villa, 2 really amazing places! The first one with its roman archaelogical area was so interesting to us (since we had no time to go to Pompeii) and the second one, a beautiful park with river waterfalls close by, not that crowded at all! Tivoli was worth the visit being just 40 minutes away from Rome. We booked it through a local company Shore Excursions in Italy.net
  22. You are welcome! We booked Valencia walking tour through "Tours by Locals" and we had Danny as our tour guide. We then had lunch with Paella on our own at "Baltazar" Restaurant just off Plaza de la Reina.....
  23. We tendered at Villefranche and from there we took a private excursion to the little village of Eze, nice little hilltop village, with cobblestone streets and roman ruins in addition to great views over the Mediterranean sea! From there they also took us to Montecarlo, luxury town known for F1 races and its casino. We highly recommend a private limo company called "Riviera Come True" with Sasha as our driver!
  24. The old Habana is nice and reminds me to Cartagena Colombia. Considering the very low salaries they get and the bad economic situation after Covid and war in Ucraine, everybody tries to make most of the profit from tourists (quite oppressive) asking for tips and money (bell men, maids, receptionists, even chefs and airline employees!). Long lines for gasoline refueling! For nice white beaches and "peace" (no vendors), you have to go to the private ones at hotels in Varadero!
