|Why Shore Excursions
Prices than the Cruise Lines
Their prices are lower than the cruise lines, sometimes up
to 40%-50% lower. You deserve to enjoy great
experiences without over paying for them. In the rare cases
in which prices are higher, it is because their excursions
are higher quality and typically involve smaller, more
intimate tour groups with fewer individuals per guide.
Higher Quality than the Cruise Lines
The people at Shore Excursions Group are extremely focused
on delivering excellent experiences. In contrast to the
cruise line tours that routinely travel with more than 50
people per tour, our average tour size is only 12 people,
offering a far more personalized and enjoyable experience.
Money Back Guarantee
To the extent you are not satisfied with your excursions,
they will provide a full refund.
Do they offer a "lowest price guarantee"?
YES. They guarantee that their prices are the lowest you can
find. If you find a lower price for a tour they offer, they
will match it.
