With 30 years of global travel experience, ShoreTrips owners Barry and Julie Karp have an intuitive sense of the desires of today’s travel savvy audience. They have focused on creating smaller, more personal tours and experiences. ShoreTrips currently offers more than 2,400 excursions and activities in more than 420 cruise ship ports of call and 180 cities throughout the world.
What Sets Shore Trips Apart:
Barry and Julie Karp, the owners, personally vet out every tour. They personally meet every operator, take their tours, and make sure they exceed their expectations for quality and professionalism.
They ensure that their tour operators have good relationships with the harbor masters to ensure that their cruising guests always make it back to their ships in time. They move roughly 500,000 cruise passengers a year, with very few complaints, but rather high praise from vacationers for their smaller, more personalized tours.
The other thing that sets them apart is their customer service. You can talk to a friendly, knowledgeable ShoreTrips excursion coordinator 24/7. They have regular business hours seven days a week and an agent on-call for off hours.
