It's unlikely they will change tour excursions to suit individual needs, so why not do the same tour by cab. All the taxi drivers will know the tour by heart & you can save yourself a wad of money into the bargain....Regards Wilba .

If you take a ship's excursion that runs over a lunch hour it is normal practice to see that you do not suffer hunger pains so lunch is invariably included. This also gives a welcome break to the "follow my leader" style of group excursions. I would suggest that you follow the fine advice given by this astute person below and do your own thing, far more dignified although if you suffer hunger pains you can follow their example. Lucy X.

Thanks very much Lucy. i have been on cruises before and tried my luck with local cabbies. So this might be a very good idea, although I must say that I never had excursions with lunch included and I never suffered any hunger pains, as we always left some 'break time' during our shore visits. There is a difference between having a snack and carrying on with your visit and having to wait for a group of people to eat in a restaurant. It is all time consuming. So venturing on your own is very probable. thanks and happy new year.

Hello again from frosty Yorkshire!Anyone who knows me , knows that I absolutely adore dogs. I have three dogs, Tilly, Oscar and Teddy and I love them all. Oscar hobbles around on three legs and Teddy is stone deaf, so Tilly looks after them both and she’s the little bossy madam!Another thing I love though, is going on holiday, and I know some people who either don’t go on holiday or only go away in the UK because they just can’t bear to leave their little pooches behind. Not...
