Venture Ashore, the largest independent cruise excursions provider in the world and part of the City Experiences portfolio of brands, expands its Essential Collection to offer guests even more one-of-a-kind offers around the world. The additions include nine new unparalleled walking and culinary tours from WALKS and Devour Tours.

“We are thrilled to expand Venture Ashore’s ‘Essential Collection’ with new one-of-a-kind offerings that will allow our guests to experience even more on their next Mediterranean itinerary,” said Rinat Glinert, COO, Venture Ashore. “Our expert local guides will help you explore your port city like never before providing experiences such as a behind-the-scenes access to the Colosseum with your family, a delicious day exploring Venetian culinary culture capped with a gondola ride with your friends, or a Testaccio neighborhood food and market tour with lunch and a gelato experience in Civitavecchia, Rome with your partner, and all delivered with our worry-free guarantee you will get back to your ship on time.”

Each Essential Collection tour begins with a meet and greet at the port with an expert guide and ends with a back-to-ship guarantee. Venture Ashore’s new tours offer a mix of shared and private experiences, including both pre- and post-cruise land-based offerings.
