When is the Best Time to Book a Private Shore Excursion?
“The early bird catches the worm.” Booking a private shore excursion well in advance is always wise as it saves you both time and money while offering you more options. Since you only have a few hours in port, beat the crowds and head straight for the fun instead of figuring out what to do when you get there. You can save money by planning ahead. Popular shore excursions tend to sell out quickly, so don’t miss a great offer by waiting until the last minute.
How Much Time Do I Need to Spend on a Shore Excursion?
Most shore excursions in Greece are designed to last either half a day (4 - 5 hours) or a full day (6 - 7 hours). The choice is yours depending on your preference and the time the cruise ship is in port. Full-day excursions can give you and your family a more in-depth visit to a location and allow you to visit several attractions at a more relaxed pace. On the flip side, shorter tours cover all the locale highlights and are generally less expensive. The Travel Insiders’ shore excursions are carefully designed to follow the cruise ship schedule and guarantee a punctual return to the port, so "missing the boat" is never an issue.
Where Do I Meet My Local Agent?
As soon as you book a private shore excursion with The Travel Insiders, you are provided with a map along with times, dates and detailed instructions of your meeting point. You are also provided with an emergency number where you may contact a destination management representative 24/7.
