What time do these excursions leave the ship each day? If they all leave about 8 AM, I may want to change to a later tour.They likely will not offer a later option, as tours are scheduled at a specific time for all and not offered throughout the day.
Looking forward to:

Amadeus Silver III, May 2018
AmaKristina, Christmas Markets, December 2018

If they all leave about 8 AM, I may want to change to a later tour.Generally it will be morning or afternoon, not 'later'
There are occasional exceptions, but if the tour you want is scheduled to leave early in the morning that will be the only opportunity to do it and most tours will be off the ship early to make sure everyone is back for lunch and in time for any afternoon tours...
