ShoreTrips' PREMIUM shared van tours are a perfect choice if you are looking for a deluxe tour that's economical but without the crowds of a big bus.

We will confirm your reservation when we have at least 5 passengers booked. You will be notified about two weeks prior to the start of the cruise with options of more expensive private trips if we are not able to run the shared tour.


This tour includes:
- Round trip transportation from the cruise ship pier
- English-speaking driver
Visits to:
- Syntagma Square and monuments
- Parliament Building
- Memorial to the Unknown Soldier
- National Library
- Presidential Mansion
- Acropolis
- Acropolis Museum
- Plaka

Come with ShoreTrips on an all-day tour of Athens! We'll see all the most important sites and have lots of fun doing it!

Start off by heading out to Syntagma Square (where most of the famous ancient monuments are located), plus the Parliament Building, the Memorial to the Unknown Soldier, and the National Library.

Next, we'll see the evzones in their picturesque uniforms and the Presidential Mansion on Herod Atticus Street.

We'll always make a stop at the Acropolis where, on your own, you can explore this ancient "high city," topped with marble temples dedicated to the city's goddess Athena and dating back to the Late Bronze Age. Please note that your driver is not licensed to accompany you if you climb to the top of the Acropolis.

If time allows, you might wander through the picturesque streets of the Plaka as you search out the perfect souvenir or a delicious plate of chicken souvlaki.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
