Cruise Tours

Cruise Tours allow you to go by land and sea! A cruise tour allows you to experience the total package for your chosen destination. With a cruisetour you get a lot for what you pay. A cruise tour may cost a little more but you get a whole lot more experiences for your money. And like the cruise, the land tour is nearly all inclusive, including your accommodations, some activities and some of your meals are included in the price.

On a cruise tour the cruise line will take care of all the details, including the handling the transfer of baggage and transfer between cruise ship and the land tour. It is a streamlined vacation with everything: cruise, transportation, sightseeing and hotel overnights.
