Explore Greece

* Many our cruise clients enjoy spending a few extra days in the cities – such as Athens, Delphi, Olympia, Argolis, Epidaurus – where their cruises begin or end, taking time to get to know a city that can’t be reached by a couch tour, or the time will not be enough. As your private shore excursion expert we can arrange for these optional stays including transfers and tours from your home city.

How we do it!

* We take into accounts the number of cruise ships arriving on the same date your ship comes to the port of call.

* Cruise lines such as Carnival, Disney, Celebrity, Princess, Holland America, Royal Caribbean, MSC Cruises, Cunard Cruise Line, Costa Cruises, P&O Cruise, Pullman Tour Cruises offer on board shore excursions -well organized but not flexible. These excursions are on a very strict departure and arrival time (imagine 1.000-3.000 cruise passengers or 20-40 tour buses to move around) that makes them be onto crowded excursion tour buses.
