Cruise Shore Excursions


get closer to the world.

Choose one-of-a-kind tours and activities.

All of our shore excursions are carefully planned and personally evaluated by a Windstar destination expert along with a local travel expert to provide authentic local experiences—the ones true travelers seek. Docking directly in city harbors where larger ships can’t fit and spending more time in every port, you have longer days to immerse yourself in the region’s culture, traditions, and welcoming people. Whether you desire an active, epicurean, or academic adventure, Windstar’s shore excursions offer moments unlike any you’ve experienced before.

Immersion in regional culture

Immersion in regional culture
Local guides share insight into their everyday world, as well as insider highlights that you don’t want to miss. As part of a smaller group, you’re able to bypass long lines, visit places off the beaten path, and get all of your questions personally answered.

Personal tours

Personal tours
Explore at your leisure with a private vehicle, driver, and English-speaking guide. These exclusive tours allow you to customize your time ashore and explore the sites most interesting to you in the comfort and privacy of your own car or van. With your private vehicle, and the personalized attention of your driver and guide, you will have the flexibility and independence to design your own unique tour. This is a great option for families and groups traveling together.
