HAL Introduces National Geographic Shore Ex in the Med

Holland America Line

Holland America Line has launched new shore excursions in the Mediterranean, developed in partnership with National Geographic.

The "National Geographic Day Tours" give guests the opportunity to explore more of the destinations they visit. Starting this summer, guests onboard Oosterdam and Nieuw Statendam can join shore excursions led by a National Geographic trained guide.

“We are continually looking for enriching and transformative experiences for our guests and the new National Geographic Day Tours are not only immersive, but provide exclusive access and hands-on experiences,” said Carole Biencourt, vice president overseeing shore tour experience for Holland America Line. “We are pleased to offer them to guests across our Mediterranean itineraries that visit these ports and will look to expand the program in the near future.”

The new tours include:

  • "A Day in the Life of a Marine Biologist" in Naples, Italy
  • "Meet the Locals in Santorini" in Santorini, Greece
  • "Influential Women in Turkey: From Past to Present" in Kusadasi, Turkey
  • "The Fascinating World of Bees" in Rhodes, Greece

The National Geographic Day Tours are available on seven- to 14-day itineraries departing from Trieste (Venice), Italy; Piraeus (Athens), Greece; and Barcelona, Spain, with stops in Rhodes, Kusadasi (Ephesus), Santorini, and Naples.

Travel advisors can now book National Geographic tours for guests on select Mediterranean sailings.
