Oceania Cruises unveils new Go Local tours
Oceania Cruises has unveiled a new series of immersive destination tours called Go Local.
The small-batch tours are said to go beyond the tourist sites and into the homes and businesses of locals to fully “embed” guests into native communities.
Guests on a Go Local tour could shepherd for a day in Menorca, Spain; shop for dinner and set the table in Buenos Aires, Argentina; and fish with the locals in Portofino, Italy.
“On our new Go Local tours, you don’t see the highlights or even visit a landmark, you are being introduced to local artisans, shopping local markets and quite literally becoming part of a local family,” said Oceania’s president and chief executive Bob Binder.
“You’re learning about and experiencing generations-old traditions and the ways of their day-to-day lives.”
The Go Local tours join Oceania’s current range of touring options, which include Oceania Exclusive, Oceania Select, Culinary Discovery Tours, Food & Wine Trails and Wellness Tours.
The new tours form part of OceaniaNEXT, a widespread, multi-million dollar project launched by the line to overhaul its ships and food offering.
Go Local tours are currently available for purchase and can be viewed in the ‘Explore Ashore’ section of oceaniacruises.com.
