appreciate your flexibility and assistance throughout. In the future, we will
keep Private Shore Trips at the top of our list."

"We just returned from our cruise and had to say how great
everything turned out, everyone was punctual and very knowledgable, it made our
trip much more fun to be with just our group, i wont hesitate to recommend you
and plan to use you again in the future..once again thanks it was
Judy C., Knoxville TN, October 2008
"Our tour in Athens was amazing, Costas was our tour guide
and it made all the difference in the world. He was so knowledgeable about the
Greek history it made it so much more meaningful. We had 8 in our tour and the
van was great and we saw everything we wanted to see. Costas found us a
wonderful place for lunch in Plaka, a real treat, tasting all the Greek
foods.....it is the only way to tour, in a small group with someone from the
area. I am sure we learned so much more on this private tour, then one of the
ship's shore excursions. I will definitely recommend your website and the next
time we travel we will definitely be contacting you. Thanks again."
Bev F., Fripp Island SC, October 2008
"Our trip was great and our guide Stephanie was excellent.
She took us to all of the main points between Cannes and Monte Carlo. She's
also a very good driver getting us in and out of very small places. Our
favorite part of the tour was EZE village. We are planning another trip next
year probably a cruise this time to/from Rome or Barcelona."
Dale G., Miami FL, October 2008
Kusadasi and Istanbul
"Thank you for the Email inquiring about our guided tours
in Turkey. I have been meaning to take the time to write to you in order to let
you know how very much we enjoyed our time in Istanbul and Kusadasi/Ephesus.
The tours you arranged were perfect and we could not have asked for better
guides than the ones you provided. In particular, I wanted to let you know how
pleased we were with Aret, our guide in Istanbul. As it turned out, Istanbul
was the highlight of our trip (which included stops in Rome,Venice, Athens and
several of the Greek Islands). I am sure this is due in no small part to having
such a knowledgeable and experienced guide. Aret introduced us to, and
entertained us with, the marvels of Istanbul. He gave us a real appreciation
for Turkey and Turkish culture. He did this all the while being sensitive to
our American culture and customs. He made us feel as if he enjoyed our company
and enjoyed the task of showing us his part of the world. The experience of
Istanbul is one I will never forget. Thank you for arranging such a perfect
part of our trip. Sincerely yours."
Kelly C., Charleston WV, October 2008
Istanbul and Kusadasi
"I just have to tell you how great the three tours were.
"Denis" was our guide in Istanbul and was prompt, courteous, and very
informative. He took us to parts of the Spice Market that we would never had
seen on a ship's tour, and the trip up the Bosphorus was fabulous. In Kusadasi
we had Sammy who was was very charming and outgoing and full of facts. He told
us more about Ephesus than we could assimilate. We all concurred that we would
use Private Shore Trips again!!! We most heartily recommend both guides."
Lala M., Vera Beach FL, October 2008
"The idea of booking a tour outside of the cruise ship was
scarry, but we are so glad that we did. Our south of France tour was by far the
best excursion we did on the entire 12 day cruise. Our driver Pascal was very
knowledgeable about the area and about Europe in general. His English was
spectacular and seemed genuinely excited about his job. We can't thank you enough
for helping us book this tour and we will definitely keep you in mind for the
next time we go to Europe. By the way, when you have more people book tours in
the South of France, I would definitely recommend letting them know that if
they miss Eze, they will truely be missing out. Thanks again!"

book more private tours, some of them are a little pricey, but the ones we
certainly good, the guides were very knowledgeable."

Marseille, French Riviera, Rome, Livorno
"Everything was wonderful. The guides were
knowledgeable, cars clean and itineraries perfect. Everyone was ready to
meet us when we got off the ship and my grandparents were very pleased with the
Of specific note, Florence was
spectacular. My grandparents have been to the city many times and commented
that they felt as though this trip they truly saw it for the first time.
Sylvia's driving ability was impressive as she was able to squeeze into the
tightest of spots and get us up close to everything. She navigated the city
streets with ease, allowing us access to areas my grandparents had never
reached due to limited mobility.
My only negative comment is about
of Marseille itself. Our guide was obviously very passionate
about the city but we didn't find it that wonderful. I think she was
disappointed when we asked to return to the ship after 3 hours instead of the
full 4. Please know this was not her fault. In retrospect we would rather have
spent the day shopping in the marina area. Live and learn!"
Jaclyn G., Mableton GA., October 2008
Cannes, Split, Valletta
"Thank you for the email. We surely enjoyed the trip to
Europe. The three tours we booked through you were excellent. The guides were
excellent, with a real in depth understanding of the history and culture of the
places we visited. Weather was very good in Cannes and Malta. A little morning
rain storm in Split, but it cleared after lunch. Everything was very flexible
and I believe we got to see everything that we wanted to. The group found the
price to reasonable, especially compared to the ship tours and large bus groups
that they deal with. I think we got to see some very interesting areas that the
buses normally can’t reach. We have advised our travel agent of the services
you provide and our satisfaction with them."

"Having just returned from my Mediterranean cruise with my
husband and four friends I just want to say how much we all enjoyed our Private
Shore Trips. The arrangements all went as planned and the guides - Katie in
Katakolon and Karmen in Sibenik - were excellent. They both spoke very good
English, were interesting and informative and were also good company. I would
highly recommend them to any future travelers and will definitely use Private
Shore Trips if I cruise again."

enjoyed our trip to EZE, NICE and MONTE CARLO. I will be sure to pass your

Ronald V., West Hurley NY, September 2008
"Hi The trip was great. Although we paid for a 15 passenger
van we received two mini vans. I do consider this an upgrade. They were able to
get us closer to the top in Eze than we would have gotten with the 15 passenger
bus. The guides were knowledgeable and friendly. I will recommend your service
to others. I am writing a review to be posted on both trip advisor and Cruise
Critic. Thank you for all your help."
Bob C., West Hartford CT, September 2008
“Great job by Orchen in Ephesus. I was particularly
impressed that your tour company uses both a driver and a guide. The
enhancement of the tour was significant. We had 5 guided tours on this trip
(none of them provided by Celebrity cruises ... I arrange them myself).
Orchen's tour in Ephesus was in the top 2. Please pass on my best to Orchen. I
told him I was going to write and give him "props."
Jeff and Ann B., Lilburn GA, September 2008
"Our driver and tour guide were fabulous. I would highly
recommend Private Shore Trips to anyone. Our guides were so accommodating, and
their knowledgeable of the area including many cities visited afforded our
ability to see and experience much more than any tours offered by the cruise
lines. Instead of the limited times and destinations offered by the cruise
line, we were able to experience many “spots” known only to locals as well as
the “cannot-be-missed” attractions. Our guide also provided historical facts about
the places we were seeing which added to the flavor. We can’t thank you enough
for the personable professionalism extended by your company. Please feel free
to utilize me as a very satisfied customer reference at any time."
Kathryn B., Indio CA, September 2008
"Our tour was remarkable! I forgot our tour guides name,
can you find out and let me know as I have some friends going to Nice in June.
I will give them your information but would like them to use our tour guide.
Thanks again for planning such a memorable tour."
Wendy E., Metairie LA, September 2008
"The shore trip was great! It was so much better to have a
private tour, as opposed to the bus tours that the cruise line contracted with.
We saw more sites than would have been possible any other way, our driver was
knowledgable, and an expert driver, and she (Sabrina) got us back to the ship
on time! She even had time to drop my older son off early so he could watch the
USA-China basketball game on TV in his cabin. If I find myself doing another
cruise in Europe, I will contact your company to set up the shore trips."

"Just wanted to let you know that everything worked out
great with our tour with Yannick for the French Riviera on 8/24/08 - He is an
excellent tour guide and I saw everything I wanted to. It was a dream come
true! I would highly recommend your company to anyone who may be considering a
private tour - it is well worth the money!! Thank You!!"
Karen H, Columbus NJ, August 2008
"Thank you. We had a great time. Our tour in Nice, France
and Monaco that you arranged for us was nothing less than excellent. We had
Pierre as our driver/tour guide. He was great. He spoke English very well, got
along very well with all us, and took us everywhere we could possibly go in the
time we had. He also was always aware that my dad was in a wheelchair, and took
us to places that were better accessible for wheelchairs. We had several tours
for our Europe trip, and I would say that this tour ranked as the best or
second best that we had. The driver/tour guide makes all the difference because
of their knowledge of the area, their friendliness, their ability to
communicate with us, and their ability to make the most of our time. With that,
Pierre was excellent and did a superb job. I will definately keep you in mind
for future tours for me and my family and also will refer you to others. Thanks

"I can't explain how happy my group was. They said, It was
an unforgetable trip! Let me tell you, the 4 days tour of Estonia, Russia and
Finland were the best. All the tour guides were incredibly good. They were

our private tours in France and Italy! We had the most wonderful visits and I
want to specifically say how great the tour guides/drivers were. We enjoyed
spending the day(s) with all of them and would recommend your company, and
those specific guides, to anyone traveling to those locations. They helped in
making our first trip to Nice and (3 ports in) Italy very memorable! We've been

"Our trip was fabulous and all the logistics worked out
well, including your private shore trips. For our family, that was the way to
go. Far more flexibility and personalization than the bus tours and more cost
effective than getting the vans through the ship. We definitely will recommend
your site and tours, and will sign up again on future trips! Thanks for your
suggestions and help."

"Our trips in Naples and Villefranche were terrific. The
guides were knowledgeable, interesting, and very enjoyable. Our guide in Amalfi
knew just where to take us for an amazing lunch and in Villefrance our guide
adapted to a huge traffic jam and strike in France so that we maximized our
time and enjoyment. They were flexible, prompt and it was all around

"Thank you very much for contacting us. Our tours were
wonderful from start to finish. In Sicily, we had Angela and she was superb. In
Athens, our guide was ill and we had a replacement named Georgia. She was one
of the most knowledgeable people I have ever met. She was definitely better
with the older people in our group. We ranged from 7-77 so it was a hard group
to talk to. Everything was timely, and we would definitely use your company

tour guides we were able to see so much more than we had ever hoped. I cannot
say one bad thing about the experience as a whole. Again, thank you so much for
arranging everything. I just wanted to give you my feedback because this is how
you will make decisions about tours in the future. I can say that I will
definitely want to hire you again and I know that feedback is important in
providing the best of the best for your clients.
Thank you so much again for
all your hard work and all that you did for us. The entire family was so
impressed with everything! It was comforting to know that we weren't in a
"cattle call" everyday and that everything was tailored to our needs.
We had family ages three to sixty on this trip so flexibility was key. The cost
was no more than if we had used the ship's excursions and we know that we saw
twice as much as we could have with their excursions."

"We are back from our holiday and everything went off
without a hitch. The tour guide you recommended- Anthony, was fantastic. He
really knew the landscape and was extremely well informed. My son asked many
questions (some that he knew the answers to already) and Anthony was ready and
able to tackle them. He was also funny and friendly- these qualities are very
important when dealing with people. I am inexperienced with computers and was
very nervous booking on line and giving my credit number out but you guys made
it effortless which made the whole travel experience great. I will definitely
recommend your company. Thanks again."

Everything went smoothly on our excursions. The meal in Istanbul
wasn’t the greatest, but our guides were pleasant and informative. The
excursions booked through the cruise line were inferior to yours in many
respects..including cost. We will be happy to use you in the future."
Tom R., Diamond Bar, CA, July 2008
"I should have written long before now to tell you how
FABULOUS our excursion was in Cannes!!!!!!!! Marjorie and the driver (not sure
of his name) were awesome. They made great suggestions about places to see at
our stops, suggested a couple of places we hadn't planned (but loved) and were
truly gems to us! We ALL loved them! I can't say enough nice things about them
and the service. Many thanks for helping to make our trip wonderful..... the
entire cruise was great too!!! We will definitely use Private Shore Trips again
if we get back over there!"
Kay W., Richmond Va., July 2008
"Thank you for organizing a wonderful experience. Our guide
was very knowledgeable and helpful. He made sure that we saw the changing of
the guard in Monaco and he suggested that my husband would like a ride in a
ferrari around the race track which he thoroughly enjoyed. I have recommended
you to a friend who will be traveling to France next year."
Leonie B, Sydney Australia, July 2008
"Thank you for the tour service you provided us from
Cannes. The two vehicles you provided were first class and the two driver

"I wanted to take this opportunity to write you a quick
note in regards to our Cannes tour on July 7th. Alexander, our tour guide, was
just amazing. Our ship arrived in port a hour late and while we were concerned
that we might miss our connection, Alexander was patiently waiting for us. As
soon as we got into his van he was off to give us more than we asked for. He
made sure we saw as much as possible and still have time to appreciate the absolutely
beautiful areas. Our four children loved his good nature and were very
comfortable with him. In just a few hours we felt he was part of the family.
We saw six countries in 12 days on our cruise and we can honestly say our day
in Cannes was one of the highlights. I will strongly recommend your company to
anyone who asks and again thank you for affording us the opportunity to meet
Alexander. Gratefully yours,"

"Just got back in the office from our trip and wanted to
let you know how awesome your guides were. Pasquali on the Pompeii / Amalfi
coast tour was outstanding! He made the trip very personal and fun. His
information / recommendation on Pompeii turned out great and when we talked to
people who were with other tour guides they said they wished their guide had
done the same. My mother in law adopted him by the end of the tour and we
invited him to visit us in Texas if he gets a chance.
In Florence our guide
Giuliani, once again was great and his knowledge of the area and history outstanding.
He was even able to get us into an awesome restaurant for lunch that most
tourists would never see. We will definitely contact you again when we travel
abroad and we thank you for all your help."

Collectively and severally the 14 of us travel a lot. At the end of the day,
all were in agreement that this was one of the very best tours we have
experienced. The driver arrived on time and drove very safely. The bus was very
clean and new. The tour guide (Stefano) was knowledgeable, gracious and offered
us all a lot of insight and information in touring Lucca and Pisa. The allocation
of time between the two towns (more to Lucca and less to Pisa) was perfect.

us went off without a hitch. The tour buses were top notch, being nearly new.
The tour guides were very informative and personable. In all cases I believe
the tours to be as good as, or better than those offered by the cruise line.
The great advantage was in having a group of only 10 persons. We were able to
move around quickly and the smaller 14 passenger buses were able to get us into
areas the large buses could not. I have been happy to recomment your services
to several people already.
The greatest compliment we had to our tours, and
thus your services, was in the obvious envy displayed by our fellow travelers.
They could not believe the quality of the service, or the low prices. I would
certainly be the first to use your services if we again cruise the

"European cruise & Private Shore Trips were great!
Dennis was our guide for Ephesus & he was out of this world! We were all so
impressed with how he handled himself & his knowledge (not only about Ephesus,
but everything). Diane could not really go with us on the tour due to the
steps, etc. (she was in the minibus & thought she could walk without
trouble, but then realized she was having a problem). Dennis had the driver
take her to a few places to pick up some gifts & just explain to her about
the area & that was so nice. The place he picked for lunch was out in the
county & was one of the highlights of the tour (out of this world)! He is
outstanding & everyone kept talking about him at dinner later in the
evening. I will use you again, also I have told my friends about Travels with

already recommended your company to people we know who have upcoming trips to
Europe. Plans are being drawn up for our next trip in 2 years..I must admit I
was afraid something would go wrong, and being the one in charge of the

"We had a wonderful vacation. Every one of the tour guides
were great. My family was really impressed with their knowledge, service, and
friendliness. I was pleasantly surprised with how much better an experience we
had compared to the Princess Cruise Ship Tours. For example, our tour guide for
the Amalfi Coast and Pompeii knew that Pompeii was closed until 11:30 AM and
changed our itinerary to travel along the coast in the morning and go to
Pompeii at the end of the day. The other tours just took people to the gate and
waited for two hours.
Thanks again. My wife and kids felt
that each guide was a "friend" by the end of the tour. The guides in
Florence and Ephesus were probably the highlight for us. The Mercedes vans that
were used in most cities were always nice. I've already recommended you to a

Nice/Eze/Monte Carlo was our absolute favourite .... the destinations
were breathtaking and stole our hearts! and the cherry on the icing of this
tour were our GUIDES ... who were both such darlings, accommodating and very
eager to show us special, out of the way places... we had great fun with them

would commend them!

trip was wonderful but even better were your Private Shore Trips. We took two
shore trips with the cruise line and were very disappointed!! The price was
high, the guides were not that helpful or informative and we felt like we were
a bunch of cattle being herded in and out within a designated time frame! All
three tours that we took with Private Shore Trips were FANTASTIC!! The guides
were very knowledgeable, accommodating, flexible and absolutely wonderful
people. Since we got home we are telling everyone we know that when they cruise
to take their off shore touring packages only from your company and NOT the
cruise line. Whenever we cruise we will contact you to see if you have tours
for our location. I can't thank you enough for making our vacation a real
experience to remember. Your tour guides are the best!!!"

way to go. Cheers."

"We are back from our Mediterranean cruise and the tour in
Monaco, Nice, Monte Carlo and Eze on Thursday, April 24th. We want to let you
know our tour guide, Anthony, did a fabulous job. He certainly made the tour
great. He even suggested we visit the town of St. Paul. He was right. It was
wonderful. He provided so much information that made everything more
interesting. Thank you again and Thank Anthony for us again. We will be happy
to recommend your services to all our friends. Again, thank you for making our
visit an enjoyable occasion."

"The cruise was wonderful, as was the entire trip. The
guide services we had in Istanbul through you were excellent. Dennis was our
guide and he was delightful, spoke perfect English and mixed his knowledge with
humor, which the group loved. He even took us to a little local favorite
restaurant of his for lunch. We will look forward to working with you again in
