    Hi Spinnaker2,

     

    Is there a way for me to find and contact you on board the ship? I'm  afraid I don't know your name or cabin. jeffkauf@ix.netcom.com

    Hi spinnaker2. Plenty of room. The van can take 8. So far it is just Jane an myself. It would be from Marseilles, Arles, Les Baux, Saint Remy. Actually, I've booked a separate tour just for the two of us which was with a different company and would have required that company to fill the van. I have the option of cancelling that one at any time and re-booking with a different company at a better price. Frankly, there are plenty of options here. All I know is that Silversea is offering to fill a van of 8 for a similar tour for $1,800. The same tour companies can be booked for $650-$700. There is an exhibit in Les Baux that I am very exited to see. It is entitled: Les Carrieres des Lumieres https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g1819081-d2651179-Reviews-Carrieres_des_Lumieres-Les_Baux_de_Provence_Bouches_du_Rhone_Provence_Alpes_Cote.html  I've already purchased tickets. Easy to purchase at any time, even from the ship on line. Also, here is a link to one of the tour operators offering the tour and van from Marseilles: https://www.viator.com/tours/Marseille/Arles-Les-Baux-and-Saint-Remy-de-Provence-from-Marseille/d485-3547PT006?aid=vba6296en2&eap=dotcomDesktop-3547PT006-6296&_ga=2.257883659.1816755868.1553563423-605177596.1553563423  Clearly, if we can fill our own van with 6, than even if we run into trouble time wise, Silversea will be very much more sympathetic to not hoisting anchor and pulling out of port without us. By the way, this scenario is highly unlikely but you always have to plan. With our own van we can dictate the tour and time. PS We will also be on from Ft. Lauderdale to Barcelona, 23 days.

    Sorry, can't help with joining an April 25 Barcelona tour. My wife and I will be headed for the airport that day on our way to Paris. However, I am interested in putting a few people together the day before, April 24, in Marseille and taking a van and guide from Provence-Explorer for a full day visiting Arles, Saint-Remy, Baux de Provence and other sites. The cost on SS for a full day van and guide is $1,800 and from this well regarded agency is $650.
