Why Choose Us

Direct Supplier

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 then resell them at much higher markup. We have our own guides, our own transport, and our own museum contracts to provide fast-track admissions.

No Double Taxes

Why should you pay taxes on tours twice? Unlike a reseller tour price that includes reseller taxes + tour operator taxes, Shore Excursions Center only pays once because we are a tour operator platform. Which means that we are legally able to make our prices lower.

Lower Prices than Cruise Lines

Our Prices are lower than cruise lines by more than 40% and lower than third-party re-sellers, 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 profit).

Timely Return to Ship

We will get your clients back to the ship on time. 100% guaranteed. In the unlikely case of that happening we transport your clients to the next port of call at our expense. Has never happened before, though!

Guaranteed Tour Departures

Smaller companies cannot guarantee that much! The tour will take place even if 1 person signs up.

100% Satisfaction

We have been making travelers happy since 2003. We love what we do! If you are not 100% happy with the tour - we will provide a full refund.

24/7 Traveler & Agent Support

Our managers are always ready to answer your questions. You can call us on weekends and at night. Unlike third-party resellers/OTAs who first need to get in touch with us to answer your question - you have our direct contact! 24/7

Visa-Free Shore Excursions in Russia

No Russian visa required to attend our shore excursions in Russia. As a licensed tour operator registered with the ministry of tourism in Russia, we take care of all the formalities. 100% Guaranteed.
