Shore Excursions Center is an easy to use on-line platform that provides the finest tour, activity and excursion experiences for cruise passengers taking Northern European, Scandinavian & Baltic cruises. It's widely known that cruise lines charge way too much for their shore excursions, and travel agents do NOT even make any commissions on these tours. So recently a lot of third-party OTAs have popped up to fix this. Unlike them, we are an experienced tour & activity Supplier with a Smart On-Line Platform selling our tours direct without any extra fees.
Our prices will make your clients want to buy MORE!
And our travel agent commission system will make you want to offer more and more!
We do not charge any fees for signing up as a partner with us, no monthly membership fees, no hidden costs, no tricks, no gimmicks, and no surprise fees. We only pay you commissions.
We cover all destinations visited by Northern European, Baltic and Scandinavian cruises. You will not need to look elsewhere!
Great selection of shore excursions of various durations, activity and coverage. Special Interest tours, child-friendly tours, disabled-friendly tours and more!
Our guides speak all major European languages, and also Mandarin and Japanese. Hand-picked. Outgoing. Active. Engaging.

Shore Excursions Center reservation platform is new but we are not!
Here's what our existing partners have to say about what we do and how we do it for them.
We have used Shore Excursions Center for many of our Russia group shore excursions and pre-cruise bookings. Their tour guides are very professional and very knowledgeable of the destination. Our unique Chinese-speaking clientele have nothing but positive feedback from their service. Highly recommend it to anyone interested in experiencing Russia and the Baltics with a reputable company.
We used Shore Excursions Center as our supplier for St. Petersburg tours for quite many years and never been disappointed. Their professionalism, dedication, and attention to detail, produce happy returning clients. Our clients raved about the guides and drivers. They know how to avoid tourist traffic, getting our clients early entrance, and even accomplishing what I thought not possible – to provide 1 day tour to Moscow from St. Petersburg on a tight time schedule for a group of 20 clients. We highly recommend this company!
We have worked with Shore Excursions Center Team for many years and they are wonderful to work with. Clients have been extremely pleased with their excursions. Great company to book your clients' tours. Very professional from start to finish!
With many tour reservation platforms on the market, you need to know what really makes
Shore Excursions Center BETTER and really WORTH working with!
Shore Excursions Center is a direct tour & activity supplier and NOT a third-party reseller like Viator, GetYourGuide, ShoreTrips or Shore Excursions Group. We supply all of our Baltic tours to such OTAs who resell them with much higher markup. We have our own guides, our own transport, and our own museum contracts to provide fast-track admissions.
Our prices are lower than cruise lines by more than 40% and lower than third-party re-sellers and OTAs, too! When you book with us, you get the best prices directly from THE SUPPLIER, not a third-party reseller who has added up to 60% margin to the actual tour cost to compensate for their advertising expenses, and of course - their profit.
We work direct B2B. No middlemen! This allows us to pay higher commissions. It's a win-win situation. Isn't it great? To compare, here are the commissions offered by the major OTAs (resellers, On-Line Travel Agencies):
Viator - 8%
GetYourGuide - 10%
Expedia - 10%
ShoreTrips - 10%
Shore Excursions Group - 12%
And here are our commissions...
Shore Excursions Center 12% Base Commission + 1%-4% Tier Commission + 3% Bonus Commission
As a registered travel agent you are able to choose net rate reservations and add your own markup to any tour we have. Your clients will only see the prices you want them to see. You collect payment from your clients, and we invoice you.
Depending on the cooperation type you choose, there are different payment options. If it's Commissionable Cooperation, your clients pay us, and we pay you commissions. If it's Net Rate Cooperation, you accept payment from your clients and we invoice you. You are able to download all reports about commissions due and invoices from your personal account.
Each agent gets a unique referral link that he/she is able to share with his/her clients. We encourage all agents to add their logo and full contact details. Our reservation system will automatically track all bookings placed by the clients who had used your unique referral link. As a registered travel agent you are able to view detailed booking reports in your personal account. As soon as your client makes a booking, you get a copy of their confirmation message. If you wish, you may disable this feature and track reservations only in your account.
As a registered travel agent you are able to create custom tour plans, name them accordingly and share them with your clients. Each tour plan is a separate page with your logo and contact information. The only thing that your clients will need to do is to book what you have pre-selected for them!
