I were really impressed with the quality of the “free” excursions provided by Uniworld. 
Quality of busses were high - the same busses and drivers did follow the ship at the entire cruise.
Each day a number of free excursions were offered - for some of the excursions sign-up was required - others you just picked a guru number before the tour.
For the paid excursions there was a minimum and maximum number of participant - in general the maximum number was flexible!
The guides were extremely knowledgeable and did speak a perfect English.
The ship did also provide bicycles. Also the way Uniworld does handle deviation and special needs.
Most excursions were free - some for a fee - price in Euro for the paid excursions below.
