Oceania Exclusive Tour
For those travelers who prefer an added measure of intimacy and flexibility, we are pleased to offer our new Oceania Exclusive tours. With a minimum of 10 guests and a maximum capacity of just 16 guests, each tour benefits from a higher level of personal attention and the added flexibility and agility that come from traveling in a small group.
Oceania Exclusive tours are available for a specially selected number of tours in almost every port we visit, in every corner of the world.
Saint-Malo was named for the 6th century monk who converted the locals to Christianity. Once a haven for pirates, it was also an important port in the voyages of discovery. Cartier sailed from here to Canada in 1534. Soon after, Saint-Malo began to flourish as a trading port, not only in the furs sent back from the New World but also due to cod fishing. As ship owners grew wealthy, they built beautiful homes in town, first of timber and then, increasingly, of granite. As the town grew in importance, high ramparts were built to ensure security. This is the part of the city we will explore during our guided walking tour. View typical streets, the cathedral, walk along the ramparts, and enjoy some free time before returning to the ship.
Please note: This tour consists of 2 hours of walking that is considered strenuous at times, through uneven ground and cobblestones. It is not considered suitable for wheelchair guests or those with mobility concerns. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
