Explore ashore

Making the most of your time ashore

It’s the big attraction of boutique cruising. You get to explore one new destination after the next, all on one luxury journey. But what happens when you step ashore? We offer plenty of ways to see all the amazing sights.

See even more on our optional excursions

If you want something more in-depth, we also offer a wider selection of optional tours in every port. These are designed by our team of destination experts and include guided walks, RIB boat trips, wine tasting and even helicopter flights. We’ll send you all the details a few weeks before you sail so you can pre-book.

Rather go your own way?

We also include complimentary bus transfers from the ship into the nearest town centre. So grab a map, then set off to explore your way. The Explore Ashore desk can also help with the best local attractions, opening times, and everything else you need to get the most out of your time ashore.
