Assistance with sentences

I would like to know 1) if these sentences are correct, and 2) if both the 'of -ing' and 'to' forms are possible?

1.
a) I am glad we had the opportunity 'to spend' time together.
b) I am glad we had the opportunity 'of spending' time together.

2.
a) I am glad I had the opportunity 'to know' you both.
b) I am glad I had the opportunity 'of knowing' you both.

2.
a) It was a great pleasure knowing you and having the opportunity 'of spending' great time with you.
b) It was a great pleasure knowing you and having the opportunity 'to spend' great time with you.

I am just going to give my opinion to see if I am correct or not. I think the 'to' form is better, but I also think that the 'of -ing' might be grammatical possible!

Thanks in advance.

    Only "to" in all cases for me. As to whether the "of" form is grammatical, I leave that question to someone else.

    Thank you very much, Copyright! And are all the sentences correct with the 'to' form?

    I am assuming "yes" since you have not mentioned anything about that!
