my husband and I are cruising in August with three of our children 14, 22, 19 and want to do some independent exploring in each port. We have read info on two tour companies: touringrome.com and sorrentolimo.com. Any reviews recommendations for these or other companies to take us to Sorrento,Pompeii; Rome and the Vatican, etc; and to Florence. We think it would be more fun, we are more independent travelers, and probably cheaper than going with the excursions offered by the cruise line. Our kids will not be able to deal with all the people on the buses and being told where to go at certain times. We would like a more "European experience" food, history, etc.
