Palma de Mallorca
City Tour Rating: 2.0 out of 5+
Scenic Tour of Majorca which was anything but. Drove us to Valldemosa where we saw a fim narrated by Michael Douglas and a display of folk deancing. Then given three hours to walk round the village with tourist shops. Visited the Castle overlooking the port - 30 mins then back to the [port.

Barcelona
City Tour Rating: Not Rated
Barcelona Loop Tour: Promised one hour at the Gaudi Park. One hour at The Cathedral. one hout at The Ramblas/ In actuality 30 mins at the Park £0 mins looking at the Cathedral from the outside then a 4 block walk accross roads to return to the coach. One ghour at The Ramblas. An absolute fraud.

Ship docked outside the harbour so had to queue for a tender. It was however a wonderful day. Caught a local bus to the old town,NO 2, saw the Palace, then another bus No 6 , to the Casino. Fantastic day.

Florence (Livorno)
Florence Walking Tour Rating: 5+ out of 5+
This was excellent. The coach dropped us off near the main square and we had about 6 hours to do our own thing. Be aware that if you take the hop on hop off shuttle it does not go through the main historic, tourist areas, so you have to know where you are going and plan it well.

Brilliant day. Will visit Florence again. Tour was pricey $148 for 2 people.
