or Nous voulons vraiment arriver.  Can someone clarify this for me.

Hi Gerry,

To be early = Être en avance

To be late = Être en retard 

To be on time = Être à l'heure

We have just changed the verbs and meanings-

Ne venez pas en avance! Don''t come early !

Nous voulons vraiment arriver à l'heure = We really want to arrive on time.

Hope this helps!
