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.

Perfect Day
November 30, 2022
We had a wonderful day in Corfu thanks to this tour and our amazing tour guide, Stamatina. We were the only 2 people to sign up for the tour. The tour company could have canceled, but fortunately, they didn't and we had our own private excursion. We first traveled to a small family owned farm, Carburi Estate. The owners were so gracious and spent a lot of time telling us about the olive oils, honey, wine and other products they make. We left there feeling like we had made a friend in Corfu. We then traveled through the countryside to Paleokastritsa. We enjoyed chatting with Stamatina along the way, learning about Greece and Corfu. The monastery was wonderful and the views were breathtaking. We ended our day in Old Town where Stamatina gave us time to explore on our own. We enjoyed the shops and had a wonderful dinner before she returned us to the port. I can't say enough about the hospitality we received from everyone that day. I would highly recommend this excursion!

Outstanding Excursion!

Our Excursion Guide was very knowledgeable about these areas. She showed us many historic sites and told us interesting stories about many of them. Her command of English was outstanding, and she was easy to understand. Highly recommend.

Tulio and Miguel are rockstars!
November 29, 2022
On our arrival at the pier at Malaga, Spain port our guide was at the door as we existed the terminal. After an hour and a half drive where Miguel pointed out all the agricultural growth we landed in Ronda. He then guided us down to the gorge and the famous bull ring. Free time was great to get WiFi then off to Mijas which I have been several times. I am so glad Tulio drove the hairpin turns to the coast. With the long travel time we had fun in conversation with both our guide and driver. Both were very informative and could not stop talking!

Lisbon half day tour
November 29, 2022
It was good to have a guided tour, but we were unable to go inside the cathedral, because the line up was to long. The rest of the tour was very informative. We ended the tour in rain and were very glad to be in a warm dry bus.

Excellent and Informative
November 28, 2022
One of the best tours my wife and I have taken in over thirty sailings. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and highly personal. Tour included the use of VR glasses to see what structures actually looked like in ancient times. This small group tour was greatly desirable over cruise ship large tour groups. Highly recommended this company and tour guide.

A Day in Monaco
November 28, 2022
This excursion was fantastic! Our guide Terri was amazing! He was so personable, knowledgeable, and fun! We did so many things that we had no idea we were going to do- such as, see the French Alps, and take a lap around the Monaco Grand Prix course! This day was one of those days you always dream of experiencing, and it became our reality. It was the highlight of our trip!
