Many cruise lines offer what they call "shore excursions" or "guided tours". But here at Azamara Club Cruises®, we call our shore excursions "Land Discoveries" because that's exactly what they are: new and exciting lands just waiting to be discovered! Chosen to appeal to the variety of interests and activity levels of Azamara cruisers, Land Discoveries are led by some of the top tour providers in the world.

Land Discoveries

Combined with our in-depth knowledge of every port’s highlights and unique offerings, we’re able to provide exclusive tours and excursions that you won’t find anywhere else. And now in 2014, our Land Discoveries program will immerse you even more in the sights, sounds and tastes of local cultures around the world through two new offerings: Insider AccessSM and Nights and Cool PlacesSM. Here is a sample of the extraordinary shore excursions we have waiting for you.

Asia & the Pacific

Hong Kong Island Highlights Tour

The tour begins with a tram ride to Victoria Peak for a 360-degree view of the city, harbor and islands that have mesmerized visitors since the tramway opened in 1888. From there, you'll head to the popular outdoor Stanley Market for great bargains on designer goods, clothing, souvenirs and more. Then it's on to the famous fishing village of Aberdeen, where the contrast in Hong Kong lifestyles is never more evident as sampans zip around the harbor, their size dwarfed by huge multimillion-dollar yachts and fishing boats. A sampan cruise around the docked boats provides a glimpse of everyday life as people go about their business repairing nets, cooking and sorting their catch.

Price: Adult $89.00/Child $79.00; 4.75 hours

Buenos Aires Sightseeing

Discover why Buenos Aires is often referred to as "the Paris of South America" on this wonderful sightseeing Land Discoveries tour of the city.

Explore La Boca, where the first Italian immigrants settled in 1851, and then stop at the colorful Caminito Street.
