ShoreFox is a shore excursion marketplace, designed to give smaller and independent Tour Operators the opportunity to sell their shore excursions directly to cruise guests. We only work with professional Tour operators who are already serving the cruise community. People that book shore excursions with our Tour Operators enjoy breaking away from the crowd, individual service, and unique experiences. They also enjoy supporting local businesses and getting to know their guides.
We pre-qualify all Tour Operators during their registration and signup process and we rely on you – our community – to provide us with honest feedback from your shore excursion experiences. This way you get a balanced view of what fellow travelers think and can choose excursions based on this.
Shore excursion descriptions provided by the Tour Operators specify what accommodations are available for physically challenged passengers. Please refer directly to the restrictions section of each detailed description.
However, to the extent guests are able to walk short distances on their own, we recommend shore excursions designated as requiring a low level of activity. The transportation on some excursions may be able to accommodate a collapsible wheelchair stored below the bus; however, scooters or motorized wheelchairs are too large to be stored on the transportation used for the excursions. If passengers are non-ambulatory, we generally recommend independent transportation for their comfort and convenience. Our Shore Excursion Experts can provide suggested excursions. We also recommend that non-ambulatory guests be accompanied by someone who is able to assist them throughout the duration of the shore excursion.
Although the cruise lines would like you to believe that independent shore excursions carry this risk, all Tour Operators are well aware of your ship's departure time, and all excursions are designed to get you back to the ship with time to spare. In the extremely unlikely event you miss the ship, our terms and conditions regulate how your costs are covered.
Tip: Before leaving the ship, always take note of the notice on the gangway when you have to be back and make sure to check the ship's time compared to local time. This way you will know how much time you have after the excursion before you need to return to the ship.
Feedback is greatly appreciated in the ShoreFox community. We only post feedback from guests who actually took the excursion, so that all our guests can be sure that 100% of the feedback and reviews are real.
After the shore excursion each participant who provided an email address will receive an invitation to share feedback on their experiences. Be open and honest! Feedback is appreciated both by the Tour Operators and your fellow travelers in the ShoreFox community.
