See above regarding food and bathrooms

Globus Company Reviews

3.0 April 2017 Recommend: Yes
Food was not to standard I expected. It was cold, runny scramble eggs. Restaurant changed times when it would start making omelettes and one was due to leave soon
You sat down to rat dinner and food was removed faster than one could finish
In Potugal, wine was not regulated to one glass and then charges as in Spain. No one abuse this but was not a friendly gesture to globes

Guides could at intervals be given instructions on pronunciation so that all could understand. This is the guides that rode with you through the country

I still enjoyed my trips

Showers mechanisms hard to figure out and more than once had water all over the bathroom. Had to have husband hold shower mechanism to be able to complete a shower. In one hotel, the mechanism holding shower broke luckily not landing on my foot

Spanish Fiesta Tour March 2017

Globus Company Reviews

5.0 April 2017 Recommend: Yes
Spain is a beautiful country with great history, historic locations and amazing cities. The tour director, Monica, made sure the trip was fun and educational. She cared about everyone, and was incredibly knowledgeable about every location as well as the ancient, past and current history of Spain. The two days in Costa del Sol was relaxing and perfectly timed. Read more

Giacomo was an excellent tour director

Globus Company Reviews

5.0 April 2017 Recommend: Yes
Giacomo was an excellent tour director. Knowlwdgeable, entertaining and sincere. The coach was comfortable and Fabio drove very carefully and competently. The hotels were good and placed right in te middle of each location for convenient walking. The only exception was the last hotel. It was a hassle and not very convenient.

The local guides were good and very knowledgeable and I feel like I got the esscence or flavor of each city.

Stride Take

Globus’ roots reach back to Switzerland in 1928, when the company’s founder, Antonio Mantegazza, bought a rowboat to carry passengers across Lake Lugano, entertaining them with stories about the local sights along the way. From that modest beginning, one of the world’s leading travel companies was born. Globus is part of the Globus Group of brands, which also includes Avalon Waterways, Cosmos, and Monograms, and which together carry more than a half million passengers annually

Who Travels With Them?

As a long-established, award-winning tour company Globus caters to both budget group travelers and those seeking a more personalized (and costly) travel package. And since you can choose among group, individual, family, or religious travel experiences lasting anywhere from four to 29 days, Globus tours appeal to a broad range of travelers. But their sweet spot remains middle-of-the-road ‘value’ travelers

What Makes Them Stand Out?

Best known for European coach tours, Globus is appropriately global in scope.

Its tours include mostly everything in their base rates, they choose hotels that are in the heart of a city (where the action is), allow a good amount of free time to explore a destination on your own, and use knowledgeable local guides -- in short, they offer the complete package.

How Does it Work?

Founded in 1928, one of the oldest in the business, they are well respected as a mass market all-inclusive tour company that provides great value.  Want free wifi on your tour bus so you can google the interesting sites you pass by?  Like convenient hotels centrally located and/or with special local charm?  Globus' long experience has helped them learn what makes travelers happy, and they deliver at accessible prices.

Where Do They Operate?

Today, still family owned, Globus operates in 77 countries across the globe, offering nearly 160 different escorted tours to Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, the South Pacific, and North and South America. On European motor coach tours, Globus limits group size to 44, allowing for extra legroom on the bus. 

Why Travel With Them?

If you’re a group of eight people traveling together, you are eligible for special deals and discounts; and if you’re a group of 20 people, Globus will arrange a tailor-made itinerary for you. If you are a traveler looking for value tours and prefer a specific travel theme, then globus has trips and tours that are designed accordingly.
