Can some one give me a guestamate for how long it would take to lay a 103x4' side walk out of Dutch Cobblestone?
Will have a Bobcat to take out the soil, and a compactor.

serpentine or straight. do you have to make cuts for a border? straight with no or few cuts, will take an experienced crew of 3 two days, and beginners maybe 4 days.

Very few cuts. 1 "L' shape 17x56, ana a 30' run connecting to it.
Why so long? I was figuring about 20 hrs. Is thgis right?
1. dig out a lavel base 4" deep, and square off area.
2. Put a 2" base and tamp
3. add 1'' sand
4. Lay brick and edging
5. Tamp brick
6. sweep in sand

If you are using a 60mm (2 3/8") paver you need to dig down
7 1/2 inches from the final elevation of the top of the pavers.
Then add 5 inches a 3/4 minus aggregate. That will compact down to around 4 inches.
Next, screed out 1 inch of concrete sand.
Do any cutting involved
Install the edge restraint.
Tamp the pavers with a mechanical plate compactor
Sweep sand into the joints
Compact one more time and sweep in all the joints.
Clean up and get paid payup
You should also consider using a geotextile under the aggregate to prevent migration into the soil.
