Visit Rome by enjoying a shore excursion to the St. Peter's Basilica and Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel or a 5-star lunch overlooking the "Eternal City" for a trip to remember. In Venice, take a shore tour in a gondola on the Grand Canal while being serenaded by a gondolier. No Europe tour is complete without an Athens shore excursion, where you can walk up the Acropolis to marvel at the Parthenon or stroll along the famous Plaka. On one of our Stockholm shore trips, tour the awe-inspiring Royal Palace or shop in the fascinating old town of Gamla Stan.

Customer Testimonials

"Excellent tour of Ancient Ephesus"
By Happy retiree
from Victoria Australia
5/5 Stars

Exclusive Ancient Ephesus

"Our guide (0z, not sure of spelling for his name) was excellent. He provided whisperer radio units for each of us so we could hear him very clearly. He was very professional, informative and entertaining as well as speaking excellent English. It was a very hot day when we were there and he was very aware of the heat making the tour more challenging. We only had a small group of about 12-14 which makes a tour like this much more pleasant. Clean bus, comfortable seats. Our guide was waiting as was indicated on the voucher. We were returned to the ship with plenty of time before sailing."

Exclusive Soller and Valldemosa

"We had a miss communication regarding where to meet for the tour. We were told to take a taxi to a specific place. This was incorrect. We finally met with our tour guide, Mike, and had the best time ever. He was great. The company reimbursed me for the taxi fare with in 2 weeks of being notified of the problem. Awesome"

Amsterdam City Sightseeing Hop On Hop Off Bus and Boat

"We kept moving up until we had the best seats on the bus, then took a full trip around the city to get the best pictures with unobstructed views. Then we took the canal boat and got to see the city from a different vantage point."

Montserrat Morning Tour

"Different side of Barcelona"
By Lizbee

4/5 Stars

Barcelona Tapas Tour

"There were just four of us on this tour. The tour guide was delightful and we learned a lot about Spanish life but some of the places we went weren't as good as we'd hoped. We were fairly early in the evening for Barcelona so perhaps some of the places liven up later on. We certainly saw tapas bars in Barcelona that we would not have seen on our own."

Exclusive Wonders of Istanbul

"Selcuk was the best guide of our 7 shore excursions! Knowledgable about history, culture, architecture and religion he delivered a fabulous tour with limited time. He gave us an option of less time at the Grand Baazar and added a stop at the Spice Market. Perfect. We stayed on schedule without feeling rushed. Thank you!"

"Great experience with thanks to our tour guide!"

Private Wonders of Istanbul

"Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and unhurried. We learned much about the sites we visited, the Turkish history and how to navigate the daunting Grand Bazaar!!"

"Fantastic excursion"
By flsunpam
from Hobe Sound, FL
5/5 Stars

Exclusive Ancient Ephesus

"We loved Turkey! Our group consisted of 16, and our guide, Cohn (pronounced John), was experienced and gave great historical talks. He knows Ephesus well and showed real pride in what his country is doing there. We started our tour from the upper gate and walked down, rather than doing the tour as most do from the bottom up. Seeing the theatre was a highlight, and we were given time to explore and take plenty of pictures. Back in town, we attended the carpet demonstration and found it to be wonderfully educational. The weavers' work is extraordinary! We did not feel pressured to buy, contrary to what we'd heard beforehand. Afterward, the group was free to go or stay before shopping their way back to the ship."

Venice Gondola Ride

"Our first booking with Shore Excursions, exactly as advertised, great directions, big discount from cruise ship offerings. We were a group of 6 and able to stay together."

"Excellent Excursion"
By Indianacut1
from South Bend, IN
4/5 Stars

Exclusive St. Petersburg Two Day Program (Visas Included)

"We did this excursion as part of a 14-day cruise on Celebrity. We used Celebrity excursions except for this one - and what a great choice it turned out to be. Rather than a group of 40 or more in a city where there are tons of tour groups, we had a group of 18. This made moving around some of the extremely crowded venues much easier - and a lot less time trying to keep the group together. Our guide, Anatoly, was very knowledgable and knew how to make adjustments at different attractions so that we could see more. St. Petersburg is very crowded - long drives to some of the attractions. But worth the time."

"A great way to see London Highlights"
By skywizzard
from Canton, GA
5/5 Stars

Welcome to London

"We were in London for 4 days and did the Welcome to London Tour and the Leeds Castle, Canterbury, Greenwich and Thames Cruise tour, which is reviewed separately. The early admittance to the Tower of London was the selling point for us, but the entire day was very enjoyable and a good value. This tour should be considered as an "introduction" to the many sites covered. This does not mean you are short changed, only that you could literally spend a full day in a site like the Tower. If like us, your time is limited this is a great way to see a lot in a short time. Our guide Frank was fantastic. He was very informed and very entertaining."

"Terrific, well-paced tour"
By Park

5/5 Stars

Exclusive Best of Florence and Pisa

"Our guide was Stefania. Knowledgeable and energetic, she kept us moving right along, getting a decent feel for Tuscany and Florence. She took our group to a new and fabulous food court in the heart of the city, where tour participants independently lunched on authentic specialities of the region available from dozens of vendors."

Excellent price and information.

Just the best tour anywhere, anytime. Ahmed was a wonderful guide, and considering the 300km journey to/from Safaga, the allocation of two drivers was a noted plus. The Luxor journey was wonderful in every way. Amazing lunch by the Nile, Nile boat crossing, Valley of the Kings and everything in between, Highest possible praise for the excursion in every respect. Could not rate it more highly.

Great Tour
February 21, 2020
This tour was very informative an dincluded the most important sites to see in beautiful St. Petersburg. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and provided great service. The process of visas was very fast and organized, we did not have any issues (even though I heard it is going to be a hassle) . Overall, great experience with much lower price than offered in the ship.

Excellent tour
February 20, 2020
The caravel picked us up within easy walking distance from the ship. It was not very well signposted, so a bit confusing to know if we were in the right place. The tour itself was excellent value for money, taking us around many points of interest with good information relayed to us, both on a small screen and by microphone by the operator. Would highly recommend it.

Small private tour
January 29, 2020
This was a small and intimate tour which included our family of four and another couple. Private vehicle and tour guide. First part of the tour was guided and the second was on our own which gave us time for a relaxing meal and time to stroll the markets

One of my favorite tours
January 29, 2020
This was my favorite excursion on our Eastern Mediterranean cruise. The vehicle was air conditioned and comfortable. Our tour guide was amazing. First stop was at a cameo factory...amazing process. We had lunch at a cute café before heading to the ruins. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and we learned so much. My teenage kids had a wonderful time as well. Highly recommend this tour!
