Our tour in Tallinn was fantastic. The tour guide Nikolai Ostashov was wonderful...very knowledgeable, easy going, friendly, willing to work with us to adapt the itinerary and very informative. We especially appreciated his willingness to openly discuss local politics and culture and how the citizens of Tallinn and Estonia were responding to and very concerned about Russia's invasion of Ukraine and their fears of Russian invading Estonia in the near future. We learned a lot about Estonia's history with Russia and Germany and how it has recently made huge strides in redeveloping its economy and infrastructure.

We started our tour by driving to and touring Kadriorg Palace and its beautiful surrounding park, which gave us the chance to see some of the local countryside. He took us to a great local fun place for lunch in a converted old warehouse in Tallinn which was filled with locals. Overall, we were impressed with all of the new development in and around Tallinn and really enjoyed our walk through the beautiful old city.

Nikolai toured us in a sleek, modern, comfortable well air conditioned small MBZ bus with a great driver who was also friendly. The entire day was truly memorable.

I would highly recommend touring Tallinn and vicinity with Private Shore Trips and Nikolai.

We were in Istanbul for two half-days on a cruise and we hired private guides and drivers through Private Shore Trips. The first day, thanks to the guides' experience, we were able to do everything. We visited the St. Sophia Museum, Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cistern, Sultanahmet Square (including tombs), the Hypogeum, and the Obelisk of Theodosius. We even had time for a little shopping and tasting Turkish ice cream! It was like putting the pieces of a puzzle together to fit everything in, and she did it. She was also very knowledgeable and friendly. The next day, we did a photographic tour because it was Sunday morning and most places were closed. The guide was very knowledgeable, and, as on Saturday, he fit everything in. We toured sites on the Asian side as well as the European. I had previously used Private Shore Trips a few years ago in Nice, France, and all I can say is that Private Shore Trips has never failed us. We have used other outfits in some other ports of call, but Private Shore Trips is the best!

Had a long layover in Milan, but not long enough to take the train in and out. Decided that a private driver would be best so that my friends could see the Duomo and grab some pasta. Since it was Easter Sunday, finding a company to accommodate us was difficult, but luckily Ken over at Private Shores was able to help for a very decent price. The Mercedes van was perfect for our group of 5 and our driver was easy to locate and get us sorted!

We booked 5 Private Shore Trip tours. Our booking agent, Steven, was so professional and prompt. He made excellent suggestions and gave us the best options.
Each tour guide was on time, friendly snd made the tour personal. Our Private Shore Trip excursions were the best part of our trip

We were met at the pier by our guide, Geraldine. Very personable, professional, and ON TIME. We had a wonderful time! There were eight in our party, and the van accommodations were perfect. I might add that I have been bringing groups to Europe for the past thirty years, and Private Shore Trips (Travels with Friends) is the best at what they do. On this particular trip, I used their services in Marseilles, Barcelona, Lucca, Taormina, Zakynthos, Crete, and Athens...Every port was perfect thanks to Steven Hurley and his expert planning and attention to detail. What you pay with this company is a much better price than taking an excursion sponsored by the cruise ship plus you are free from the herd! I would recommend this company to anyone.

I would recommend Private Shore Trips to anyone looking for a professional, well organised trip to the French Riviera. Ken Diaz was brilliant at suggesting an itinerary and making all booking arrangements; he responded to emails quickly and clearly wanted to provide a good service. Although the cost of the private tour was quite high it was less expensive per person than the cruise ship tours and we experienced so much more.

Our driver guide Kevin met us at the Cannes cruise ship terminal and immediately made us feel comfortable, ensuring he knew the main places that we hoped to visit. Our tour lasted around 7 hours and we saw so much; Cannes, Monaco, Monte Carlo, Eze and countless breaktaking views along the way. Kevin was a fantastic guide, telling us interesting stories and anecdotes as well as giving us information about the history and culture of the area. His English was superb and he really thought about the individual interests of our group of 10 family members with an age range of 11 to 78! Kevin planned regular stops to ensure that although we had a really full day it didn't feel rushed and he more than fulfilled our expectations. A really memorable day!

Went on a bus trip with this company. Was met at port by Nora who spoke very good English. She took us to nice eze Monaco and Monte Carlo. It took us 5 hours and could spend time at each town. Would use again but would like driver to be a bit more talkative and have a bit of get up and go. She was informative

Excellent service from Ken the tour operator from start to finish. He confirmed our arrangements several times before the tour and gave us easy to follow instructions. The trip covered all the important highlights of Nice, Cannes, Monaco, Monte Carlo & Eze. Driver was prompt and courteous while we toured and offered opportunities to take pics throughout the day. Exceptional value and savings over the excursions offered on our cruise ship.

I had a group of six guests with walking difficulty and they were promptly met (Concierge from Oceania's Riviera went down the pier and brought the van to the gangway)... loved the lady driver who is the guide too. She planned the tours around their mobility issues and all had a grand time... This is one of the replies I got from one couple "The tour @ Marseille was good. Lady guide was also the driver. After Aix-En
Provence she suggested Cassis, a resort town outside Marseille. Since we did
not walk much she arranged for a decent lunch next to a Museum in Marseille."
Ken Diaz,Group Reservation Manager was very attentive and followed through with every email and request and gave instructions on how to ensure the meet and greet service. Private tour for the whole day in Marseille or any of the cruise port cities is the only way to do it for full appreciation especially if you have mobility issues.
