Azamara enhances land tours with NatGeo partnership

Small-ship cruise line Azamara is expanding its robust shore programming with new day tours by National Geographic.

Beginning this month, Azamara will offer nine different National Geographic Day Tours in partnership with Intercruises Shoreside & Port Services, the global cruise ground handler that collaborates with National Geographic to create and operate these experiences.

“Our Azamara guest is constantly seeking new ways to explore different cultures and destinations through educational and immersive travel,” said Paul Chapple, head of land product development and operations at Azamara. “Intercruises’ trusted service and reliability paired with National Geographic’s legacy and global expertise helps us provide our guests with exclusive access to hands-on cultural experiences, adventures steeped in expertise, and meaningful explorations.”

About National Geographic Day Tours

National Geographic Day Tours aim to authentically capture the spirit of exploration that the publication has brought to the world for more than 135 years.

Each tour is guided by National Geographic-trained guides and follows the criteria of the Global Sustainable Tourism Council. Azamara’s Extended Destination Days, providing 10 or more hours in port, allow plenty of time for guests to enjoy a National Geographic Day Tour and then explore even further, aided by newfound knowledge.
