Breathtaking cities, beautiful harbours, and culturally enriched States make a visit here the ultimate holiday. Whether you want to experience the busyness of New York, the sunshine of Miami, or the landscapes of Canada, be sure to get your exploring hat on! A range of great shore excursions are available -here are our favourites.

1. Statue of Liberty, New York

Statue Of Liberty
One of the most iconic statues in the world, we highly recommend a tour to take a closer look and learn more about this fascinating monument. Once you board your ferry and sail past the amazing skyline of New York City you will arrive at Liberty Island, where you will stand right next to the Statue of Liberty.  The ferry is free, and worthwhile on a nice day, even if you don't get to the statue!  Your guide will tell you the history behind Lady Liberty, as well as walk you around the grounds, pointing out the main points of interest. This tour is great for those that want to get closer to the action, rather than just view the statue from afar.

6. Bing Pink Bus, Halifax

Halifax is the most visited historic site in Canada, a fact which is not surprising considering its picturesque views, urban feel, and wide variety of visitor attractions. Due to Halifax being the home of so many things to see, we definitely recommend the Big Pink Bus Tour, allowing you to see it all in one day. The bus is an authentic London double decker that has been coloured pink to support breast cancer. Taking you on a journey all around the city, it allows you to get off at various locations such as Halifax Citadel and Maritime Museum. You will have the option to complete the whole tour at once, or you can get off and on at various points, allowing you to further enjoy any places that you want to spend more time at.
