Cruise Tours De Force From P&O Cruises
A cruise is a fantastic way to visit a whole range of contrasting destinations – but what if there is a particular city or region that you wish to explore in more detail? P&O Cruises understands that you need time to explore what makes a country’s culture and people tick, and has an exciting selection of overland tour adventures to enjoy before or after your exotic fly-cruise.
Available in selected cities around the world, these tours offer the opportunity to spend a few days ashore. Having just sailed under San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge in the US, imagine then driving across it to the Napa Valley, staying in a top-class hotel and spending four days sampling delicious wines.
In South America, you could savour three days in Buenos Aires, taking a tango class and mixing with gauchos at a ranch. Alternatively, a five-day tour takes you to see the spectacular Iguazu Falls from both the Brazilian and Argentine sides. They are taller than Niagara and twice as long. On a five-day tour centred on Rio de Janeiro, you can join the cog-wheel train to the top of the Corcovado Mountains to marvel at the statue of Christ the Redeemer.
Take a seven-day land tour after arriving in Sydney on your cruise ship and you will be taken to enjoy the sights of this beautiful city, including a relaxing luncheon cruise on picturesque Sydney Harbour. Then you’ll be flown into the Red Centre of Australia to witness the haunting beauty of Uluru (Ayers Rock), dine as the sun sets and join an Aboriginal guide on a walk of discovery around this sacred site.
If your cruise begins or ends in India, the Taj Mahal & Tigers tour could take you to explore Delhi and Jaipur and includes a visit to the unsurpassed Taj Mahal.
So if you’ve ever wanted to delve deep into a destination, yet yearn for the variety that a cruise offers, these outstanding combinations could be the answer.
