Excursion Companies - Europe

Pretty much every cruise line out there offers endless options for shore excursions ranging in price and activity level. Truth be told, we prefer to book private shore excursions when we cruise because we can typically get a better price and a more personalized experience. There is a little bit of risk involved, in that if the private tour company gets you back to the ship late, you are responsible for making your way to the next port of call, whereas if you book with the ship directly, they will hold the boat for you. We used the following two companies during European cruises and couldn't have been more pleased. Use the Roll Call feature on Cruise Critic to find other cruisers on your ship interested in sharing the private tour with you. This not only brings the per person cost down, but allows you to meet fellow cruisers before you ship sets sail!


Rome in Limo specializes in tailor-made tours throughout Italy. Also, perfect for private/group shore excursions with a personal touch!


Joe Banana Limos provides shore excursions, local tours and private transfers throughout Italy. Great for private cruise ship excursions.
