My guest tonight is Kelly Gillease from Viator
Everyone who has ever cruised has been exposed to the hardest sell of the cruise industry: the shore excursion. With costs ranging from $25 to over $1,900 per person, shore excursions can easily exceed the cost of the cruise itself. Booking your own tours can save 50% or more, but is it safe? The cruise lines will tell you all about the dangers of booking your own shore excursions…but is that just a case of the fox guarding the hen house?
Kelly discusses the myths and truths of booking your own shore excursions; especially the great Bogey-Man — will the ship leave you if you’re late getting back. Whether you’re new to cruising or a seasoned veteran, Kelly has some surprise answers to your questions about booking your own tours. Have a listen and then visit Viator.com and have a look around.
