“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.”

“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.” Added Virginia Quintairos, Business Development Director at Intercruises Shoreside & Port Services. “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.”

National Geographic Day Tours 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 provide 10 or more hours in port. This allows plenty of time for guests to enjoy a National Geographic Day Tour and then explore even further.
