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 2 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.

When you visit a place for the first time there is usually an easily found list of things you shouldn't miss. We understand the appeal and we won't tell you not to do this but sometimes the hidden secrets of a city are of the most memorable. This shared van tour will take you to some of our guide's favorite spots providing some of the best views and tastings on the island.

We'll start with a Greek tradition by taking you to a family owned distillery for a local favorite, coffee flavored ouzo. This secret recipe is a modernized version of what was originally a project of monks living in the region. Make sure you try the unique liquor made from the tears of the Masthia tree in this perfect Santorini environment.

Next we'll head to the south side of the island for panoramic views of the volcanic caldera.

At the black sand beaches you will learn about the violent volcanic history and enjoy life by the shore before stopping at a local venue for a cheese and olive oil tasting. You'll be offered some Tsikoudia and for those of you who don't know, it's an alcoholic beverage that is a grape based version of brandy. Locally made!

After some samples of the local delicacies you will dive into the past within a small ravine at the foot of Pyrgos. Now considered a ghost village this area was at the heart of a prosperous wine region before being destroyed by a devastating earthquake. All residents had to abandon the village over a half century ago.

There is one more beverage to be had as you stop at a local kafeneio - a Greek café - for a wine tasting accompanied by Cretan cheese and olives.

Shore Excursions

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.
