OUR EXCLUSIVE COLLECTION FEATURING
THE MOST CREATIVE, CRUISE SHORE EXCURSIONS IN EUROPE
Welcome to A Taste of Life, an exciting, new way to experience contemporary life and food on an exclusive selection of private-driver shore excursions and unique pre and post cruise experiences.
Cruise lines limit their offerings to “one size fits all’ pre-arranged, large-group bus tours led by local guides detailing aspects of European history. But A Taste of Life Ashore provides something very different. Our company was launched to serve the needs of guests aboard the world’s top ten-rated cruise lines, guests who are seeking a hands-on approach to experimental touring and an understanding of one fundamental question:
Our exclusive pre and post hotel programs and in-port shore excursions are designed to help answer that very question. What do the locals eat in their homes? What are the current political, social, and economic issues facing local people, and how do they view the future of their country? What are the most popular television programs? How good is local education and health care? A Taste of Life Ashore allows you to delve deeper, gaining a greater understanding and sense of place. And as we all tend to gather in the kitchen, food is an important component of the experience. Go beyond the big cities and experience life in the small villages.
Each of our shore excursions and pre/post cruise programs is based on 2-4 Guests. Yes, we could make a nice profit filling up 45 passenger motor coaches, but we would never be able to achieve the level of immersion and discussion with our specially-trained guides on a group tour. We would never be granted authorization to enter the kitchens and the homes of locals anxious to share with you their ‘real life.’ Our programs are exclusive and planned for a maximum of four guests sharing a guide, driver, and the best available vehicles. There is an expense to experience destinations in this manner, but the value added through personalized service, unique experiences and insights of Europe’s most sought-after private guides is unparalleled.
A Taste of Life Ashore is created for and sold exclusively by the nation’s most prestigious travel agencies and consultants. Your professional agent will waive any booking fees in conjunction with our pre/post or shore excursion programs.

You will not be subjected to a sales pitch of any kind. That is neither our style or our purpose. We have crafted the very best private shore excursions available in Europe and it would be a privilege to have you as a guest.
