Star Princess Jul 27 -private shore excursions



I was sailing on Star Princess on july 27 from Barcelona and had booked private tours ( for 6 people) listed below but we have had to cancel our cruise so the following can be contacted for those interested (bookings were made based on comments and references on these boards)

July 30 with Paola (Florence)

Aug 1 With Marcello (Naples)

Aug 3 with Spiro (Athens)

Aug 4 with Nejat (Kudassi)



We are sorry for you. We will be on the same cruise.
Upon recommendations from past cruisers I have also contacted with local tour companies.

Livorno/Florence - We will take the train to Florence. We are planning to go to Duomo, to see Michelangelo’s “Davidâ€Â, do some shopping for leather goods, lunch and take the train back to Livorno.

Naples - We also booked Marcello. He will take us to Pompeii, then drive along the Amalfi coast with a stop at his family's restaurant for lunch.

Athens - We booked a fullday tour with Spiros. Around 200 euro for up to 4 people for a full day tour.

Kusadasi - We are booked with Shorex Turkey - -
The cost for our party of 6 with a private official guide for Ephesus and House of Virgin Mary is $125 Dollars. We will have a vehicle which holds up to up to 12. If we could get a larger group together the price goes down per person.

We asked a private guide for us because we think we can learn more with a guide for our party. I believe the cost of the private guide increased our cost above.
