One of the best-kept secrets of Cruise Specialists is that in the process of organizing cruise travel for more than 30 years, we’ve also become adept at treating you to the best experiences on land. Spot the Big Five in Africa, tour Europe’s interior for in-depth art and culinary experiences, or carve through otherwise inaccessible terrain via luxury rail in the Canadian Rockies.
Our longstanding connections with the world’s best tour operators and private guides mean the options for what we can do for you are nearly endless. Plus, with our 30-year reputation for personalized service and attention, you can rest easy that we’ll take care of every detail before your trip. And, we look forward to hearing about your adventures when you return home.
Let Cruise Specialists Enhance Your Travels on Land
Cruise Specialists is different from other travel agencies because we have an in-house shore excursion department that organizes VIP group tours and personalized shore tours for individuals or couples. Our seasoned Cruise Consultants are also skilled at arranging journeys that are entirely land-based, such as deluxe rail trips or African safaris.
As an example of the types of services we provide, we offer these highlights:
- For group shore tours, our team looks for opportunities to provide much more than a standard city-orientation motorcoach tour, although that continues to be an appealing option for many. Think evening excursions, special interest programs, wine-themed experiences, wildlife tours and more.
- We are experts in crafting private, multi-day shore tours, referred to as “overland tours.” Some of our most highly-rated overlands have gone to the Taj Mahal, China’s Great Wall, Machu Picchu, Angkor Wat and other highly-coveted destinations. The experience we have on the ground in nearly 80 countries enables us to help Cruise Specialists clients maximize their time and enjoyment of each destination they tour.
- One of the most common requests is for us to plan your pre-cruise or post-cruise hotel stay, complete with luxury hotel accommodations, transfers and private tours.
Our partners that we work with at Cruise Specialists are among the best land-based tour providers—and, in fact, that you’ll find in the world. By allowing us to make your reservations for any arrangements in conjunction with a cruise, it becomes a more seamless process for you. Plus, if you reserve through us for a land-based package, you can rest assured that the service levels you are accustomed to receiving will be the same.
