Shore Excursions in the W. Med.

On a Holland America cruise we'll be visiting Ceuta, Almeria, Barcelona, Palma, Marseilles, Monaco, Livorno and Palermo.

We'd prefer to explore on our own or take local tours. On an Alaska cruise, good tours were available at reduced rates (compared to the cruise line) at dockside. Is that true of the above places?

On our Med. cruise, which included Livorno and Monaco, we did it on our own and saved quite a bit. There should be plenty of cabbies/local tour operators waiting at the pier. Do it on you r own. I think it is so much better because you are on your own time, it is private and cheaper.
