Description

What Picton lacks in size, it certainly makes up for it with natural beauty. It's hard to imagine that under 5,000 people live here considering the incredible access to nature and one of the world best wine regions just 30 minutes away. Maybe the locals prefer it this way. They have said the only way you can take this tour is if you promise not to move there.

Your guide will lead this brief but perfect Picton introduction tour with a scenic panoramic drive covering the highlights of the area. Although great views can be accessed by road, it's best to hit a trail to really capture a feel for the area. At Karaka Point you will learn the history of the Maori fortifications and occupation before taking a guided walk to a vantage point providing stunning views of Queen Charlotte Sound.

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.
