International Expeditions has announced plans to expand their offering of small-ship expedition cruises for 2013. In addition to year-round journeys to the Amazon River and Galapagos Islands, the company will operate a Turkey and Greece cruise aboard the 42-guest Panorama II departing September 15, 2013. Each small-ship expedition is led by knowledgeable expedition leaders and guides who help travelers delve into the nature, history and cultures of places visited.
“The best part of traveling with IE is their knowledgeable guides,” said Amazon guest Bill Anderson of Jonesborough, Tenn. “It's not that they just live in the area, they grew up in the region.”
Designed for history and archaeology enthusiasts, International Expeditions’ Turkey & Greece journey spans centuries of history and culture along the ancient Turquoise Coast and Greek Isles. IE’s 12-day cruise offers an immersive survey of the region, from Bronze Age shipwrecks at Bodrum’s Underwater Archaeological Museum to an unexcavated acropolis in remote Lindos. Highlighting the tour are archaeologist-guided explorations of sites which were part of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World — the Colossus of Rhodes, Mausoleum of Halicarnassus and Temple of Artemis. Guests also enjoy swimming off secluded coves and beaches, time to sample food at a local taverna and independent exploration.
