Through a partnership with Intercruises Shoreside & Port Services, Azamara will initially offer nine National Geographic Day Tours that will explore the culture and history of destinations through the content and research of National Geographic.

“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.”

Virginia Quintairos, Business Development Director at Intercruises Shoreside & Port Services said: “We have had the privilege of working with Azamara for many years and understand the high expectations in terms of quality, cultural authenticity and local immersion for their shore programming.

“National Geographic Day Tours are truly unique and original experiences, arguably bringing guests closer to the destination than ever before, and we are now excited to start operating them with Azamara.”

Each National Geographic Day 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.

These new tour options will be priced from US$86 to US$225.

Highlights of the nine National Geographic Day Tours offered by Azamara include:

Sancocho, from Monk’s Legacy to National Delight: Travellers will uncover the legacy behind the Dominican Republic’s gastronomy as they participate in a hands-on cooking class led by a local chef.
