I am part of a group of 8 traveling on the Voyager of the Seas from Barcelona through the Western Med in early Sept. We would like to arrange for some private tours at several of our ports instead of being part of the larger group included in ship-sponsored excursions. I believe that the small-group, customized and flexibility itinerary could make for very special experiences but some members of my group are concerned about the risks associated with going "off ship." Can anyone recommend a reputable tour group that specializes in port excursions in Naples, Livorno, Rome, Marseilles and/or Villefrances? Also, what are your opinions of ship-sponsored versus private excurions?
Thanks for your help!

Doing a private tour is the best way to go. Read the information about each port you mentioned in www.EuropePortReviews.com and you will find a ton of answers.

Has anybody done private tours to Rome, especially to the Vatican? I heard there are better, more customized ones out there than the ship offers where you can bypass long lines, etc. We don't want to do the walking tour as previously suggested. Any recommendations?
