private shore trips reviews


Thank you for all your assistance, tours were excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed them. We will certainly contact you again as needed. We will also recommend your services. Guides were both helpful, pleasing and very knowledgeable. They were also very accommodating.

Fernandez-Rocha Group, Miami FL - November 2014

Florence, Marseille, Barcelona and Monte Carlo

I just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with all of the driver/guides you organized. At each port, we were met on time and each of the guides were knowledgeable, personable & accommodating for all of my husband's needs. Please communicate to your local offices our extreme satisfaction with - Valerio in Pisa/Florence; Francis Xavier in Monte Carlo, and Marie Helene in Marseille. Unfortunately my husband was ill in Barcelona so only our friend Lorie took the tour, but she said it was very happy with the tour.

Thank you for planning these tours & for helping to make this a very special trip.

I just came back from Paris yesterday, I extended my vacation. We had a great time on the Cannes trip. The 9 Mini Buses came on time, guide drivers were great and places we went were absolutely beautiful. We really enjoyed the trip. Thank you for your trip arrangement.

Kevin L., Gaithersburg, MD - October 2014


Our tour with Alex in Villefranche was fabulous. He is very animated, knowledgeable and with a great sense of humor. We enjoyed our day with him and would highly him for future tours. Thank you for making our experience fun and enlightening.

Ken P., North Franklin CT - October 2014


The tour was great! I was actually worried about our luggages that it won't fit in the two vans but with the way they arranged those luggages, they all fit right in. Geraldine & Marie were excellent tour guides. They were very accommodating & their knowledge of the places we visited is incredible. Even the restaurant they recommended was to die for & reasonable prices too! We've already recommended Private Shore Trips to all our friends & family and as we speak,we are already in the planning of our vacation next year so you'll definitely hear from me again.

Marseille, Palma, Valencia, Malaga and Lisbon

I was going to send you a email today. We were overjoyed at the quality, knowledge and service of every one of the tour guides you selected for us. The couple we were with travel a lot and they were also extremely pleased. we all felt that it exceeded our expectations. Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job. I submitted a review today on Trip Advisor. Thank you for excellent service.

Monaco, Marseille, Palma de Mallorca

Thank you for making our trip one we will never forget. Many have already asked me for your name and am passing it on. Will write you up in Trip Advisor also. We took a chance and lucked our so thank you for all your help and must say we would use you again anytime we travel in Europe. Do you have guides outside of Europe like Australia? Someone was already asking. Thanks for a trip of a lifetime that we will never forget. Great guides on all ports. We loved our guide in Palma de Mallorca and Marseille. Great information and a pleasure to spend time with. Can't say enough about those guides!

Shirley P., Calabasas, CA - September 2014


My clients loved your arrangements and I want to thank you and will use you again in the future for sure.

Iris C., Travel Consultant FROSH, Pompano Beach, FL - September 2014


We had a very positive experience with Sharif and Kevin, they were very helpful, pleasant and informative. They also had booster seats availably for our use and were patient with kids' demands.

I would certainly use your services again.

Farah S., Rochester, NY - August 2014


Everything when well. Pick up was prompt and the buses were comfortable. Thanks.

Alfred K.,East Amherst, NY - August 2014

Kelly P., Boca Raton, FL - August 2014


We had a lovely time. Driver and guide were great and the large bus was extremely comfortable. Thanks!

Francisco A., Tampa, FL - July 2014


We are now back home in Australia having enjoyed an extended stay in Europe. I have just posted a positive comment on Tripadvisor regarding our tour to St Tropez and Bormes les Mimosas using your company which says it all. Thank you and best wishes to all at Private Shore Trips.

Dianne E., Salamander Bay Australia - June 2014

St. Petersburg

Great trip. Our St. Petersburg tours on both days were great. Natalia was extremely informative about Russian history, palaces, churches, and the art we saw at the Hermitage. You could tell she was very passionate about what she was showing us. She also led us to two very good restaurants for lunch. There is obviously more to see in St Petersburg than we had time. We will most certainly use Private Shore Trips when the Super Six goes on our next adventure.

Steven M., Fripp Island, SC - July 2014


Everything went very well only we could really have used at least 1 more hour. I think everyone in our group thought this was a great way to see Monaco and I will post on trip advisor once I get home. Thanks for everything. Your driver was lovely and punctual and spoke English very well so no complaints, we just needed more time, LOL

Madelieine S., Plaquemine, LA - July 2014


All went great. Your tour guide was helpful and informative. He was excellent.

Ashraf S., Strathfield Sydney, Australia - July 2014

Not home as yet but a brief note to let you know that all went well with the arrangements. More than happy.

Charles M., Abbotsford Australia - July 2014


Everything was so great! I will definitely recommend your company to others and have already. Are you in any other countries, or just France? Let me know as many of my friends travel and I will pass on the information. Thanks again for such a wonderful time.

Monica D., Ponte Vedra, FL - June 2014

Arlene C., Glendora, CA- May 2014

Marseille and Villefranche

I wanted to let you know we thoroughly enjoyed the 2 trips in France we booked through your company. The drivers were excellent, informed and helpful. They took our wishes into consideration but also made some wonderful suggestions to enhance our experience. Using your service to provide smaller more personal trips is much better than using the standard larger trips offered by the cruise lines, Thank you.

Alison Sara T., Sarasota, FL - June 2014


I just wanted to express our deep appreciation to our tour guide "Yen" (sp?) who assisted us in Nice. He was extremely kind and patient. We really enjoyed him very much. Please would you pass along to his boss so that he may be recognized? Thanks so much and we will definitely keep you all in mind to book future trips. Regards,

Miki M., Leesburg, VA - May 2014


"I wanted you to know that your company did a perfect job again on our arrival in tour in Barcelona. The meet and greet was excellent. The guide whose name I know I will murder Zetha was one of my favorites ever and in fact I would love it if you could provide me a way to send her a note and thank her for everything that she did. I love using your company. You are always reliable and always do an excellent job. Thanks again and of course will be using you again soon. "

Naples / Marseille

"I would like to say that two trips (Naples and Marseille) you organized for us were fantastic! Although both times we had to face our excursion time being shortened by the ship, we had excellent time with Toni in Naples and Geraldine in Marseille. They were excellent in many ways. Thank you. Please extend my thanks to both."

Chiharu W., Auckland New Zealand, April 2014

Venice and Livorno

"Fabulous. Our Venice reservation was simply a transfer to the port from the airport, so fairly quick. Everything went perfectly and very professional service.

With our Florence/Pisa tour, we got to spend the entire day with Silvia. She was fantastic. Very knowledgeable, and able to get us right into the heart of both cities which was important because my mom was unable to walk very far. The tour was more than we could have ever expected and we were very happy. Great memories.

Thanks again. We will highly recommend Private Shore Trips to others."

Noel C., Fairfield, CA - June 2014


"Our two tours were really wonderful. We saw everything we possibly could and asked for an extra hour on the Florence Pisa tour and it was added for us. Really fantastic service... "

Monte Carlo

"Thanks for the followup… Our tour was excellent, thanks. Our guide Jan was really good, knowledgable and quite funny. We had a nice visit to Nice, St Paul de Vence, Eze, and Monte Carlo, and it all worked out well. It was a great day… The whole trip was excellent. I’m still working my way through the thousands of photos I took! Thanks for everything. Cheers!"

Kotor is beautiful and the service provided was excellent! In fact, one of the best guides I have ever had and transport quality as well! I would like to know about what options you could offer me to Vienna. We will be a group of 4 people and we will be in Vienna for 3 whole days: March 2, 3 and 4. After that, we can talk about Prague, Budapest and Salzburg.Thank you! Best wishes
