Athens Shore Excursion: Small-Group Food Tour

Athens, Greece

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

My mother is 67 and not very physically active, but was able to enjoy the tour with no problems. She was extremely pleased with the guide, Vangelos. He was very professional and informative, and went to great lengths to ensure she made it back to the boat in time. Vangelos alleviated any fears my mother had of getting lost by personally escorting her to the place she needed to be in order to get back to the ship. She tasted breads, cheeses, fruits, pastries, juices and wines. The walking was reasonable (about a mile), with the biggest challenge being the cobblestone. The guide was very good at trying to keep them in the shade, which was great since the temperature was a balmy 90 degrees (f). Recommend a shopping tote since there was time for shopping on this tour, and wear casual clothing with comfortable shoes.

Dubrovnik Shore Excursion: Sea Kayak and Snorkeling Small-Group Tour

Dubrovnik, Croatia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Don't worry, you will make it back to your ship in time...that was my biggest worry. The on site viator guides were willing to refund us if we thought we couldn't catch the return bus to the ship. (That helped) July (temp about 85F) We are active (45 y/o married couple) - No exp. necessary (training provided) Our guide was Antonella - She was absolutely great! She customized our excusion to fit our time. Our excursion was supposed to start at 5:30PM, they started it at 5:00PM and finishing at 7:15PM (Viator guide Antonella - gave us the option to shorten our tour due to weather / catching the last bus 8PM to Cruise ship)
Pros:
The cruise ship bus takes you to the point where the Viator tour starts and ends (can't get lost)
Professional - Knowledgeable - English speaking - Safety gear provided
Learned the history of Dubrovnik as we kayaked
An air tight container (Either large or small - you pick) is provided to put your wallets, ipad's and camera's etc into - It is secured to your kayak.
Sea water was beautifully clean, and not too cold (perfect)
Provided a complimentary bottle of water
Snorkeled from a sea cave - and we saw many sea creatures (fish) from the minute you put your head into the water.
HINT** If you have individuals who aren't interested in the kayaking, they can ride the same bus ($12 USD p/p for round trip) to your drop off point and site see. Conveinently located, they will definitely have plenty to see while you are on your excursion...and then again, the pick up point is the same for every ship.
Cons:
None - Just plan on being tired and laughing a lot (Especially if you are a couple in a double kayak)
