Description

You might be a serious shopper or a person who wants to browse. It may be that a few guys or gals (or both) would like a couple hours with an expert to direct them to the shops that fill their fantasy, even just to look. It matters not to our antique expert, who also knows the ins and outs behind every establishment's door.

We will connect you with this antique maven so you may forewarn her of your quest. She always carries a measuring tape and her camera so all you need are your measurements and anything you might be matching, if that is your goal. She will arrange packing and shipping, if you find your dream. And, as I said before, if you just want to learn from her years of experience as you travel around town, that suits her fine.

Set out to find your treasure with your expert guide in an incredible city filled with various antique shops and galleries to choose from. On your drive, your guide will provide you with different brochures to browse through from the local businesses. Develop your own treasure hunt of shops, where no two are alike.

Your antique adventure will then be tailored to stop at the shops with your particular interests or you may elect to stroll through the center of town and discover what each proprietor specializes in: French, English, American, Revolutionary through Civil War, china trade, early iron, folk art, books, hooked rugs, clocks, quilts, vintage clothes, garden antiques, fine art and fine furniture and estate jewelry just to name a few of the interesting antiques and collectibles.

And just to entice you a bit more, here are some tips from an Antiquing Pro!:
1. You can learn more about an antique from the bottom than from the top.
2. Mirrors are good deals and cheaper than artwork. "People who love mirrors are comfortable with who they are."
3. The polite way to ask for a discount it to say, "Is that your best price?"
4. Come prepared with measurements of the area you'd like to fill. Bring swatches of fabrics, carpets, paints and tile. Photographs of your home help too.
5. Be patient and ask questions. Developing relationships is not only fun but also yields handsome results.

Shore Excursions

By: Laurie


Reviewed on: 30 Mar 2017

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.

MOSTLY EXCEPTIONAL

By: WENDY from MIAMI


Reviewed on: 04 Jul 2018

We did a private whale watching tour which was incredible. The train ride in Sitka which we were not going to do at first was spectacular. Scenery, comfort - a wonderful way to see the area and spend our time. We signed up for a Mendenhall Glacier trip plus Salmon bake. This one was so very commercial and although the glacier and waterfall were above our expectations, a short time was given to walk there and view. This left out two of our party as they could not move as fast as needed to return in the time frame of one hour. Then the BAKE- the food was marginally ok. They were out of the most important SMORES ingredients. It is crazy but that was advertised (we were willing to break our diets ) and we looked forward to them and then disappointed. The people were nice. the area was pretty but that one I would strongly advise friend not to sign up for.

Great experience. The tours of the Louvre, and Notrre Dame were great. The guide even helped me try to get Eiffel tower admission tickets switched after I had booked them on the wrong date.

Summer Hawaii Cruise

By: CGreene


Reviewed on: 17 Aug 2018

I arranged a church group of 55 for a Hawaiian cruise. This was our first time to use ShoreTrips and we had VIP treatment as compared to the mega busloads arriving from the ship/hotels excursions. Many times we had a site all to ourselves and then were leaving when the larger groups arrived. With all of the excitement about the active volcano, we weren't sure what to expect when we arrived on the Big Island. Those taking the helicopter ride raved about the experience and others were amazed to truly explore, taste and see that there is much more to her than only the volcanos. Every guide was lovely and professional, in fact, when I asked my group of to each submit 2 of their personal favorite photos, one was a guide on the last day in Honolulu for the private Pearl Harbor/airport excursion. It was nice to choose a selection of excursions for my group and ShoreTrips truly worked hard to make every trip come to fruition. Highly recommend all types of excursions with them.

We loved all our Excursions! The small number of people on our Excursions was awesome! It was great not being in big crowds of people! All the tour operators were wonderful! We never felt rushed or hurried. They all seemed like they loved doing their jobs!
