....more Info about La Rochelle Tours

Our La Rochelle day trips include English speaking driver-guides and private vehicles. We can customize La Rochelle tours for both small and large groups. Very few ocean cruise lines visit this port so if you wish to enjoy a private La Rochelle shore excursion, please reserve well in advance. Contact us today for information or availability. Our private shore trips are highly rated on TripAdvisor!

The port of La Rochelle is mainly a commercial port, plus there are many private sailing ships, so there are very few services available for large ocean cruise passengers. The town of La Rochelle is located about 15 minutes from the port. Due to security reasons it is very difficult to get a taxi from the cruise pier. However, the tourist board often offers a shuttle from the port into town for about $10 per person. If the shuttle will be available on the day of your visit, the cruise line will announce it either the night before or early in the morning.
