Escape from the crowded streets of Marseille to the quaint hillside village of Châteauneuf du Pape, known for its more than 200 vineyards. In the 14th century, Pope Jean XXII chose Châteauneuf du Pape as his official summer residence. You will first tour a local winery where locals will share their passion --- the wealth of their native region, wine.

You’ll surely spoil your palate while sampling contemporary, and exotic wines. You will even be able to purchase bottles and have them shipped directly back to your home in the States.

Next, you will travel to Avignon where you will you will have lunch. Avignon has been described as “a walled city of history and culture.” For almost three quarters of a century, Avignon was a deemed as a European Mecca of art and religion. Not only is the Pope’s former palace (Palais des Papes) still in tact, but it is “the most breath taking sight in Provence.”

After lunch, prepare yourself to embark on a historical journey as you walk through the town and enjoy viewing homes dating back to the 17th century. After your walking tour of Avignon is complete, you will now enjoy your leisurely one hour drive back to the harbor.

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.
