Response from TammyF777 | Property representative |
Good Morning Cathy, Yes we pick up at the cruise ship pier. For 2 people we would use our Mercedes R350. A three hour private driving tour for 2 with admission to the Breakers would be $390.
Hi, Do you pick us up and drop us off at the cruise ship?? Arriving Sept 19. What type of vechicle do you use for a group of 6?? What about a group of 8 ?? What is the cost?? Is this with a driver and a guide or one person does it all?? Are ticket for attractions included?? Thanks Ed San Francisco
