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.

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

Mediterranean & Black Sea

Helen of Troy

Behold the famous ancient city of Troy, filled with mythological and archaeological significance. You will be regaled with stories of the famed beauty Helen of Troy, the infamous battle between Achilles and Paris, and of course the iconic Trojan Horse. Nine cities have been discovered here, each built on top of the last, dating back to 3,500 BC. Learn of the excavations by famous archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann in the 1870s, and the foundation of Troy is on display at the Archaeological Museum. Explore the sites for the Houses of Troy, the Bouleterium (Senate Building), and the Odeon (Concert Hall) for an incredible historic experience.

Northern & Western Europe

Ice Bar & Old Town

Stockholm’s oldest and coziest quarter, the Old Town, features buildings dating from the 16th to the 19th centuries, including the elegant Royal Palace. Stroll down narrow, winding cobblestone streets to Stortorget, the Great Square, where the Old Stock Exchange now houses the Swedish Academy and the Nobel (Prize) Museum. Continue by coach to the heart of the city and the Nordic Sea Hotel, the world’s first permanent ice bar. (As one of the most popular bars in Stockholm, most of the time a pre-booking is required, but not for this Land Discovery shore excursion!). With everything from the interior to the drinking glasses made from the clearest ice harvested from the Tome River, you’ll marvel at the Nordic Sea Hotel’s beauty, as you sip vodka from an ice glass while wrapped in a fur poncho and mittens.

Central and South America

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. Drive down one of the widest boulevards in the world—the 9 de Julio—and then visit the Plaza de Mayo, the Metropolitan Cathedral and the Colonial Town Hall. Explore La Boca, where the first Italian immigrants settled in 1851, and then stop at the colorful Caminito Street. Of course, no trip to Buenos Aires would be complete without a visit to the remarkable Recoleta Cemetery, where you'll visit Evita Peron's tomb.
