  1. We went to Budapest 5 years ago with Uniworld. At that time one of the included tours was to the Parliament Building. That is no longer listed as an option. The current choices for 2018 are : Panoramic Highlights and Opera, Highstreet Shopping, or "Do as the locals Do" Budapest Walking Tour. Anyone know what these tours include? We are a group of 6 and going in 2 days early. Will get a private guide( one we used before) for one day before we board but don't want to duplicate if possible. Thanks for your help!
  2. So sorry about the double posts! There were issues that told me to try again later. I did but obviously the previous one also was posted,
  3. Thanks so much sunset beach gal! I really like your advice. Always good coming from a fellow North Carolinian! Will check out Blackberry Cabs. Sorry about the double posts. I posted and then something came up and said there was a problem so I should try again later. So I went back in and edited my post and tried again. It went that time but obviously went before too! I tried to cancel one but it would not let me do that either.
  4. We will be sailing on Silversea On Aug 1, 2018. We are interested in a private prearranged transfer from Terminal 3 at Heathrow Airport to the pier at Tower Bridge in London where the Silver Wind will be docked. I know you can take the tube but we are in our 70's and will have lots of luggage since SS still has Formal nights. I also know that cabs, etc are pricey in London. Can anyone recommend a reputable company? Also has anyone had experience with using Uber for such transport?

  6. We spent 3 days in Basel after our Uniworld Rhine Cruise. The free trams were great to get around the city. We also used them to get to the train station where we took the train to Lucerne for the day and return. Very easy to do and a fun day. We also rented a car for a day and drove through the countryside to Gruyers where we explored the cute village, visited the Gruyer Cheese factory and a chocolate factory. Lots to do if you do your research!
  7. All of your posts have been very helpful! We are sailing on the Aug 1 - Aug 15 cruise from Tower Bridge returning to Tower Bridge, which sails all the way around the British Isles. Good to know when you can board and where. The location of boarding will make a difference in how I plan our on shore adventures in London. This is our first Silversea Cruise but have done many small ship cruises. Really looking forward to it!
