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.

The air on Santorini will give you an appetite. By combining the viticulture and the local foods on Santorini, you will complete your adventure satiated in every way. On your way to your cooking class you will stop at a volcanic vineyard to see the special way the Santorinis grow and harvest their grapes. Every trace of life was gone after the volcanic explosion between 1620 and 1640 BC. All that remained was covered in volcanic ash, lava and pumice stone, and together they created a compact soil called 'aspa'. Excavation of areas of the island found traces of past viticulture and wine storage but now a new way of growing grapes was needed on this island.

The only way for the grapes to survive from the direct exposure of sun and strong winds is to protect them inside low-basket-shaped vines, the "ampelies", as they are called locally forming a unique pruning system. You will see this unusual method that has set Santorini apart from all other methods of production and delivered much respect to the vineyards.

You will visit a winery that produces traditional wines representing the local Assyrtiko, Nykteri, and Vinsanto grapes. With the help of a local chef at an open air restaurant, you will prepare your own feast of classic Greek delicacies and island specialties. Sit down with this small group of new friends and toast with a glass of Ouzo to your meal, and then eat!

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.
