Private Shore Excursions & Overland Tours

Artisans of Leisure arranges private shore excursions and overland tours around the world.

Our shore excursions and overland tours are private, sophisticated, and extremely personalized. These tours allow travelers to move at their own pace and focus on their specific interests. Tours include an expert private guide and driver each day, spacious luxury vehicles, visa assistance, internal transportation, and luxury accommodations when required.

We carefully plan all excursions to avoid crowds and emphasize authentic local culture, including the most interesting historic attractions, neighborhoods, markets, shops, restaurants, and performances.

Our specialty is planning pre- and post-cruise tours, overland tours during cruises, and multiple private full-day shore excursions for travelers taking around-the-world or extended cruises.

Please note that we only book private shore excursions in conjunction with a land tour (5+ days) before, during or after the cruise.

Please contact us if you are interested in customizing private shore excursions and overland tours in Asia, Europe, the Mediterranean, Africa, the Middle East, Latin America or South Pacific.

Testimonials

Greece was fantastic! It was such a luxury to have our own guide and driver during all of our shore excursions. We saw so much and did exactly what we wanted to do. Your guides are top notch. We plan to use Artisans of Leisure for private shore excursions during all of our future cruises.
