  1. Thank you for that info!!! I looked on the Atlantis website and didn't see any info like that yet! And I agree with what has been shared above, if there is a cost for something, you should pay it and not look for a way to sneak in somewhere. 🙂 Good info!!
  2. fun! I've heard about that through research! Sounds like a good choice 🙂
  3. Thank you for that info!! Regarding Atlantis, that is a possibility for us. 🙂 It is worth it to go just to tour the grounds and not enjoy the water park? What is there to see to just walk around? And how long would it take? Snorkeling...yes! I have some found some companies with good referrals from doing some research already! So that is an option too! We don't know if we should just snorkel at CocoKay and do it with our "beach day" OR do it is an excursion at Nassau instead of other sightseeing? Decisions...LOL!
  4. Thank you for that feedback! 🙂
  5. okay, thank you! What did you decide to do in Nassau then? We leave in 3 weeks and researching now 🙂
  6. Did you find out any info? I found it on TripAdvisor, but the website isn't working. It had great reviews (and some recent ones), so it sounded promising 🙂
  7. What are some of the favorite things you have done there? We are 2 couples and I've found info on snorkeling, food tours, Atlantis, private island tours, walking tour...so many options! We have the whole day there and the other couple is new to cruising, so I want to do something super awesome that's not too expensive 🙂 The husband wants to snorkel, so that might be a main contender!
  8. Hi! This looks like a great tour and it does get good reviews on Trip Advisor. Did you end up doing it? If so, what did you think? And do you have any updated contact info for them? The link doesn't work above or the one from Trip Advisor. Thanks! Or what did you end up doing? Looking for snorkeling options for a group of 2 couples for Nassau in Feb. 2020 🙂
  9. I used this thread to make a decision about whether to use ItalyTours and I would like to post my experience! We had a delightful time in Rome with ItalyTours with Valerio! He was prompt, courteous and helpful. He did a great job getting us around quickly to the sights to see so many of them. I also loved that he seemed to know the area very well and dropped us off very close to most of the sights, which was appreciated in the heat. Our van was clean, nice and had great A/C!And a big THANKS to Deborah, our tour guide in the Vatican City, who was AMAZING! She was able to navigate us past all the ticket lines with hardly ANY wait!! The heat and crowds were horrible, but she did her best to make it a pleasant and an informative time :) She was delightful, knowledgeable and super fun!In addition to the driver and tour guide...the experience with booking with Italy Tours was pretty easy. The VERY thorough emails were great with knowing what to expect. For example, we wanted to see the Colosseum and the email with details on HOW to book it and also HOW to get through the very long lines was SO helpful! After we followed all the instructions to shoot past the lines and make it in, my husband was like...nice job :) We chose the semi-private tour and I thought it was a great value for what we received!
  10. @cleobella-That's fun! After talking to my husband, we decided to do Pisa and Lucca...a little shorter of a day than going to Pisa/Florence. Found a company (Papillon tours) that did this excursion and it sounded like a pretty good fit for us 🙂 We will back to the ship in time to rest up, enjoy the evening and be ready for our big day in Rome the next day!
  11. Thanks Hank for the tips...it's appreciated! My husband really wants to see Pisa...so it's on the list. Good knowing these things though...maybe we will be pleasantly surprised. Kristina 🙂
  12. @cleobello-I agree and I am in the same boat! We are doing longer days, so I am looking into doing something shorter at Pisa. We are docking in LaSpezia. What tour did you use? I've looked at tons of tours, but most only do longer ones...and looking for something shorter. We are looking at just doing Pisa DIY...how did you see the Pisa sights? Thanks for any tips!!
  13. What a GREAT thread!! I don't have a question, just a BIG thanks to Roger and everyone else who has given such great tips over the years! My 3 boys are doing a coasteering trip, so I was looking for something for my mom and I to do that was fun and relaxing. We are going to use one of the walking trips that was suggested! Can't wait to enjoy this beautiful port!!
  14. We will only be in Barcelona an evening and a full day. I received ideas from Rick Steves Barcelona guidebook, Facebook groups (there is one that is called Travel Fashion Girls that is SO helpful!) and just some general research. So evening we are doing the Runnerbean night tour...and then next day is... morning-Sagrada Tour (get tickets in advance) early afternoon-Camp Nou (we are a big soccer family) late afternoon-Runnerbean Gothic Tour evening-walk around, Citadel Park, Chocolate Museum, La Boqueria Market..who knows?? Keeping this open 🙂 I've heard Barcelona is an amazing city! I've heard food tours are awesome and the beach is cool too 🙂 That chocolate tour sounds fun!!
