Cruising Greece? Shore excursions offered by the cruise ships can be expensive - or they can book up before you make your reservation, especially if you wait until embarking to try and schedule them. Here are some options you can book yourself at the most popular ports in Greece. Just be aware of a few caveats - cruise ships will often get their own shore excursion passengers off the ship first, which may cause problems with the independent tour timing. And that same cruise ship might not be quite so willing to wait for you if your independent shore excursion is late arriving back. We have included a couple of options for Greek island cruises which include a stop in Turkey as well.
