  1. Once again, not being completely happy with tours offered by ship, wondering if we are just better off with a list of "must sees" and a cab. Any suggestions?
  2. Thanks so much for your suggestion. The information I've gathered tells me we are docking in Positano or Amalfi itself, on the Amalfi coast. I believe we are tendering. I am having trouble finding private transport out of one of these towns. A personal friend told me his favorite city was Sorrento, but many others have commented like you, that the smaller cities are much nicer, so I will probably abandon the thought of including Sorrento since it's so out of the way. And I do want to go to Ravello, which I believe is the other direction. I'm starting to think I may have to book a ship cruise or just go for a cab when I get there. Although I do hear there is bus transport between these small towns.
  3. I am looking for a tour that allows us a bit of time at Mt Etna (maybe the cable ride with a walking tour) as well as time in Taormina. Cruise ship does not offer anything like this. It seems to me that this should be possible within a 9 hr period. Any suggestions? Appreciate the help, thanks!
  4. We are coming into Amalfi itself, Seabourn Encore, in August. Would like a driving tour that takes us to all towns mentioned. I cannot find a tour that does this. Perhaps a taxi at the port? Any suggestions to offer? Thanks in advance.
  5. Greetings to all! Can anyone suggest a hotel for 2 nights, in or near the city of Sydney, so we don't need a car. Perhaps with transportion to the airport. HAL is offering a package that's $800. I guess that includes transfers, but are they really that expensive? Suggestions or recommendations appreciated. I would like to stay under $200 (USD) a night. Thanks!
