O'Brien Estate
2020 Voyage to Key West & Cuba

Shore Tours

Food & Wine Trails' (F&WT) private shore tours differ significantly from the typical group tours sold on cruise ships. Our tours are designed specifically for food and wine lovers, focusing on the wine, culture, and cuisine of a region. We take our guests to unique venues, often not accessible to the public and therefore not crowded with tourists. Our guides have been hand selected for their expertise and knowledge of the region, and bring as much to the experience as the destination itself.

The size of our tours are kept relatively small to allow for a more intimate and authentic experience. As a result, shore tour participation cannot be guaranteed to all group members.

A brochure with tour descriptions and registration form will be sent by email and USPA to all confirmed group members 4 to 5 months prior to the cruise. Once released, we recommend acting quickly as they tend to sell out quickly. In the event one or all tour(s) become sold out, your F&WT Travel Consultant can offer you other options.

Please note that before tours are released, all descriptions and included elements are subject to change.
