Types of Land Vacations


GUIDED / ESCORTED TOURS — When you take a guided or escorted tour, you literally leave the driving to others. These tours go far beyond the professional driver who takes care of your ground transportation. They include flight, accommodations, sightseeing, and most meals, and are led by dedicated tour directors and local experts who pride themselves on making sure you experience the best their destination has to offer.

Escorted or guided tours plan every detail for you…and because they include admissions to the museums, historical sights and attractions you’ll visit, you’ll never have to worry about standing in line waiting to get in.

Whether you want to trek through the Alps in Italy, walk the ashen ruins of Pompeii or take in the most influential works at the Louvre, we will find the best tour for you. Cruise Planners has longstanding relationships with the most reliable and well-respected escorted and guided tour partners in the business, so we’ll make sure you’re in good hands.

No worries though. With what seems like a jammed packed schedule, your guided/escorted tour vacation always has plenty of built in leisure time for you to relax and take all the goodness in or explore even further on your own.
