    Family of 5 (kids 15,13,11) cruising the Med on Star Princess starting June 21. We would love suggestions/recommendations for shore excursions for this itnerary, including any private tours. Our first time to Europe so we want to see as much as we can without wearing out the kids.

    Thank you so much in advance for responding with any thoughts you care to share.

    We have a family of 16 going on the same date. We have children that
    are 8, 9, 11, 13, 14 and 17. We would also like any advice on shore trips.
    Also has anyone stayed at the Bauer Hotel in Venice?

    Hi Jennifer, make sure the kids(and the adults) get to visit Pompei on your visit to Naples.

    My husband and I just completed our 12 day Mediterranean Cruise with Star Princess. Here is a list of local tour operators we used:

    Naples - We used Marcello Maresca from See Sorrento. Our trip will included a visit to Pompeii, then the drive along the Amalfi coast with a stop at his family's restaurant for lunch. Marcello owns the business and has another driver to assist him when he his personally booked up. His website is www.seesorrento.com Marcello's email address is marcellomaresca@tin.it

    Athens - we used Spiros from www.athenstaxi.net He is very reasonable...around 200 euro for up to 4 people for a full day tour.

    Villefranche - We are booked through Dream Tours for a tour to Monte Carlo, Monaco, Nice, Eze, and St. Paul de Vence. Alain is the person who handles the reservations. He was VERY helpful and put up with dozens of emails from me. The website is www.dream-tours.com You can email him at infos@dream-tours.com I have also heard that Sylvie De Cristo (sp?) is a wonderful guide here, as well.

    Kusadasi (Ephesus) - We used Byzance Limo. The website is http://more.at/Byzance The site lists all of the tours and prices. I found them very courteous, professional, and very quick to respond to my emails. There are many wonderful reviews about this company. They were first class and the guides were helpful, informative and very flexible. It was something we enjoyed so much (a feast for the eyes, ears and senses).
