Ancora Tours Shore Excursions

About Us

Since 2003, leaders in shore excursions tours for cruise passengers.

Shore excursions are an essential part of any cruise trip. Going ashore is one of the best parts of a cruise and probably the first reason many of us choose a cruise holiday.

We noticed however, that the major cruise lines had a monopoly on not just the price of shore excursions but the organisation too. Our founders Alberto Rodiguez and Emiliano Bianchetti thought that there must be a better way, and Ancora Tours was born.

As an international tour operator, we create guided tours in the most fascinating and beautiful places. We work with the best guides who help you get the most out of your trip, bringing you to the top attractions and revealing the stories behind them.
