Our Europe Cruise Tours Offer a Travel Experience of a Lifetime.

Europe is one of the most fascinating places on Earth. While the cruise lines focus on your transportation, our Europe excursions and tours focus on your destination activities. From St. Petersburg, Russia in the North Santorini, Greece in the South, to Lisbon, Portugal and Barcelona, Spain in the West and Istanbul, Turkey in the East (and many ports in between), Shore Excursions Group offers an outstanding collection of European vacation packages.

Northern Europe

The United Kingdom is made of England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland and offers a wealth of sightseeing activities. You can check out London's iconic 'Big Ben' clock tower, stop by medieval Old Town in Edinburgh, or discover the Scottish Highlands. There's so much to see and do that a trip to the UK is a must-do.

Sweden is a Scandinavian nation located between Finland and Norway. On one of our Stockholm shore trips, tour the awe-inspiring Royal Palace or shop in the fascinating old town of Gamla Stan. Feeling adventurous? Ski down the Swiss Alps at breakneck speeds, but if that sounds too scary, their thermal spas are the way to go. Denmark touches Sweden's southern border and is known for its rich culture, from the many art galleries and museums to the Renaissance palaces and Baroque castles. Check-in with local guides to get the most out of your stay.

Southern & Western Europe

Spain lies between Portugal and France. Between the three of them, there are a variety of tour packages and things to do. Take a small group on our Barcelona Tapas Tour or catch a heart-pumping Real Madrid game. Doing a couples trip? Paris is just about the most romantic city on the whole continent for a reason. Enjoy guided tours, from the magnifique Eiffel Tower to the intriguing Louvre Museum. Oh, and let's not forget about the delicious French cuisine!

Italy is an absolute must. Go to Florence, the home of incredible Renaissance masterpieces, or try some authentic Italian pizza in Sicily. Experience Rome by taking a tour of St. Peter's Basilica and Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel or a 5-star lunch overlooking the "Eternal City" for a trip to remember. You can take a gondola ride on the Grand Canal while serenaded by a gondolier in Venice. From the Roman Colosseum to Vatican City, you can spend your entire vacation in Italy and have the time of your life.

No Europe travel tour is complete without a stop in Greece, situated on the southern tip of the Balkans. Athens is the capital and where you can walk up the Acropolis to marvel at the Parthenon or stroll along the famous Plaka. It also has the longest coastline on the Mediterranean Basin, featuring thousands of beautiful Greek islands. Renowned for its beaches, from Santorini's black sands to the party resorts of Mykonos, Greece is legendary.

Central & Eastern Europe

To the East of the Netherlands and just north of Austria lies Germany. It has it all - captivating scenery, marvelous landscapes, castles and timber towns straight out of fairytale books, and an abundant culture full of sensory treats. There are great cities like Berlin, Munich, and Hamburg that offer a ton to do.

Surrounded by the Australian Alps and sprinkled with sparkling lakes, Austria is considered one of the most gorgeous destinations in Europe. Vienna is the capital and a tourism hot spot. Discover all the amazing sights and the city's rich history at your own pace on a convenient Hop-on, Hop-off Bus Tour.

The Czech Republic, also known as Czechia, is a landlocked country that borders Germany, Austria, and Poland. Prague is the capital, and its historic center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The historic architecture of their castles, chateaus, and mansions is truly something to behold and worth the day tour.

Santorini- The Caldera, Oia, and Fira!
April 02, 2023
Upon arriving in Santorini, we were blessed with a lovely day! We first took a water ferry with great views of the Santorini Volcano to Ormos Anthinios where we caught our tour bus. After meeting our wonderful SEG guide, we took a nice paced tour around the isle, ending up in Oia for several hours of shopping, lunch, and iconic pix of the blue domed churches & bright white homes. We continued ending up in Fira, the island's capital, for more shopping, snacks, and pix of our cruise ship and the Caldera. Our tour guide was knowledgeable about the island and history, informative and adept at answering our questions, and patient with our large group, which included teens to my senior mom. After shopping, we caught our optional cable car back down to the sea. SEG provided a wonderful tour and we could not have passed for a better first day in the Greek Isles! This is traditional excursion and, though a fair amount of walking sometimes on uneven surfaces, this tour is highly recommended!

Rhodes&Lindos- Acropolis, Ceramics, & Grand Palace
April 02, 2023
Arriving on Rhodes, we took our tour bus to Lindos, learning much about this island's history, incl ancient & medieval, prominence in ceramics & pottery, and relaxed atmosphere from our knowledgeable, informative, and funny SEG guide. The Acropolis at Lindos is one amazing site! Shuttling to the base town, it is a tedious walk up with a few of our party taking donkeys! My daughter & I got our steps in and it was worth the walk! With nice sea views, it was surreal strolling thru this ancient site. One stop was to Bonis Ceramics, with a nice lesson in the craft and time to purchase handcrafted pottery. Last stop was a nice paced tour around the Palace of the Grand Masters, where we had the option to return to our ship or to shop and make our own way back. This was a definite must-do excursion to see such great highlights of this island with such a long and varied history!

Mykonos- Monastery, Beaches, and Windmills!
April 02, 2023
Once ported in Mykonos, we met our SEG guide who took us to dip our toes at Kalifatis Beach, providing his knowledge of the history & importance of this isle along the way. Heading next to Ano Mera in the central part, we toured the beautiful Monastery of Panagia Tourliani, the only Catholic Church on isle, and took a refreshing snack break. We continued back to Mykonos with a walking tour of the harbor, and its sites, shops, and restaurants. Given the wide range of our group’s ages, our patient guide took us through the winding pedestrian-only streets to visit historical sites like the Church of Panagia Paraportiani & the Mykonos Windmills. This harbor town was packed with shops galore, mostly accessible on foot! So much to explore but, fortunately, our guide left us with suggestions to finish our day before heading back to our ship. This tour had lots of walking mostly moderate given the occasional uneven pathways! Definitely, a nice introduction to this lovely popular isle!

Our tour guide was so great and took us to amazing restaurants where we were able to drink wine and eat cheese and try different tapas and desserts! It was nice because we were in a small group. She was very nice and knowledgeable about the area! My husband and I also had time to go to the beach after before going back to the ship! I would recommend!
