What is a Cruisetour?

A cruisetour (sometimes referred to as Land and Sea) gives travelers an opportunity to travel by land and by boat, with two wonderfully different perspectives from which to get to know a region of the world. Cruisetours are most often offered in Alaska, Greece and the Galápagos Islands, but there are also cruisetours in Eastern Canada, France, Brazil and China, among other worldwide locations.

Cruisetours vary in itinerary length and price, with the cruise portion of the tour typically lasting three, four or seven nights. Here are just a few examples of popular cruisetour itineraries that we sell at AffordableTours.com:
