Santorini
Oia Village Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

More then enough time to walk around, unless you want to do some real shopping. narrow streets wear comfortable shoes as the roads are not flat.




Oia Wine Tasting Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

Just the view from this site is worth taking the tour, the wine is not exactly what one would like if they enjoy a good glass of wine. The time spent was adequate to take a few pics, finish your glass and then back on the bus

Istanbul
Blue Mosque Rating: 3.0 out of 5+

Over-rated, lines extremely long and you only spend about 10 min as we were rushed by mosque staff as it was almost prayer time. This could be skipped as it a typical of a mosque just on a larger scale. Bring head scarf as now it is mandatory for all women to keep head covered. Carpet extremely plush inside so your not stepping on bare floors(shoes have to be off).




Hagia Sofia Rating: Not Rated

Beautiful architecture = long walk but worth the hike to see the interior that has rememnants of islam and christianity in 1 room. Be a little careful with bags in main square too many ppl around. excursion was very well organized

Kusadasi
Ephesus Rating: 2.0 out of 5+

Bus drive to site was more interesting after Istanbul it started to look the same,especially the Grand Bazar. Unless your looking to buy alot most ppl looked bored walking around just trying to kill time to catch the bus back to the ship.

Mykonos
Port Rating: Not Rated

Simply Gorgeous - even my husband said that was his favorite. The city is right on the waterfront and just gorgeous little alley ways with shops and restaurants facing the ocean. Water were crystal clear just as it seemed in Santorini. We took the bus transfer to town($8) and walked around on our own and were able to kill 3 hrs just doing our own exploring thru the town...there is no way you can get lost as all the small streets meet up.....

The Plaka Walking Tour Rating: 3.0 out of 5+

Bus took us to bottom of acroplis but the tour guide spent so much time talking no one had time to walk around, then bus took us to Plaka, again after walking thru santorini and mykonos the shopping was the same with narrow streets filled with shops and restaurants. I would recommend take the Acroplis tour instead.

Naples
Pompeii Walking Tour Rating: Not Rated

Excellent tour however you need more then the time alloted to see the ruins. A lot of walking definately dress in very comfortable walking shoes. Definately worth the hike and heat.
