Escorted tours are included in virtually all ports of call – this is a crucial part of our philosophy, as it ensures that our guests will visit the most interesting sites, accompanied by the very best guides. On the rare occasion that guided tours are not included in a port of call, it is because we’ve found that independent exploration is the best way to experience that particular locale.
On each guided tour, your individual QuietVox headset will ensure that you can hear the tour leader clearly, even at the busiest sites or at a distance. To keep you refreshed, bottled water is provided as you disembark for the day’s exploration.
The perfect way to begin or end your travels, each cruise vacation with Voyages to Antiquity includes pre- and/or post-cruise hotel stays, allowing you to really get to know these captivating cities. All guests can look forward to 4- or 5-star hotels, and guests booking a Balcony Class cabin (categories A to D) will enjoy exclusively 5-star accommodations.
Your stay in each city offers the perfect balance of included guided tours and leisure time. Hotel stays include breakfast, tax and service charges, and hospitality desk services. Please refer to individual cruise itineraries for details on the hotel accommodations included for each voyage.
To ensure that our guests have ample time to experience the wonderful destinations we visit, each cruise itinerary is designed with frequent evenings and extended stays in key ports of call.
