AMAZING!! This port was our main reason for choosing this cruise. We arranged a 2 day private tour with Alex Tours on line before leaving. We heard about this agency through someone else who had used them. We had a private guide named Kristina and a driver in a spacious van. Our first day was from 8 AM until 9 PM and the second day from 8:45 AM until 4:30 PM. The cost was $720 per couple. We paid in US dollars at the end of the tour. We saw all the sights, had a private canal cruise and rode the subway, a must see. We dodged all the lines. Everything is quite crowded. Kristina truly has a passion for her country and her job. She was very intelligent and well spoken with a great sense of humor.
If you arrange your own tour with a private licensed company like we did Princess will tell you you cannot disembark the ship without first meeting in the dining room. Then when there are 50 people there they will escort you off the ship. As you may have already read DO NOT listen to them. They cannot do this. We walked right off. Some other people tried to walk off and Princess tried to detain them and they spoke up and got right off. In my review directly to Princess I did tell them they have to quit making idiots out of people.
