Great photos and comments from several posters. We went on a cruise to Greece and Turkey in 2006 and made 14 stops along the way and we mostly took a taxi. Not to avoid the crowds so much but to see areas that the buses would not have taken us.

There was a good article in National Geographic a few months ago about Easter Island. Maybe you can Google for it or go to the library and read it.


That's quite a cooincidence, Kent - just 2 days ago accross the Thanksgiving table, my niece was mentioning using cabs as opposed to tours in Turkey/ Greece.

The drivers knew where & when the busses were and got them in between.

She specifically mentioned having the Acropolis to themselves and upon leaving meeting an actual WALL of oncoming bus tourists

HOWEVER - The NG did have an article about 20 years ago about "The Lord of Sípan" in northern Peru which enticed us to go north to that mostly unvisited region.
