Shore Excursions

On shore, Avalon includes a great range of comprehensive∘ sightseeing excursions led by knowledgable Certified Local Guides.

In many cities they also give you a choice of sightseeing pace: 'Traditional' to see all the major sights, 'Leisurely' available on walking tours∘ when you want to take it slower, and 'Independent' allowing you to explore on your own.
