Awesome tour

Globus Company Reviews

Recommend: Yes
I took the Continental Introduction tour with Globus Journeys. This was a guided tour that visited 6 countries in 2 weeks. The tour started in Paris with 2 nights there. While in Paris we had a cruise down the Seine River and a wonderful group dinner on the banks of the Seine. We visited the Eiffel Tower where we could go to the top if we wished. The next destination was Lucerne, Switzerland with one night there. While in Lucerne we went to the top of Mt. Pilatus by way of gondola going up and the world's steepest cogwheel train coming down. There were some in our group who had never seen snow, so it was nice that there was plenty of snow. After Lucerne, we went to Lugano, Switzerland. This was a very lovely lake town and we took a boat cruise on the lake and had a nice dinner at a wonderful restaurant. The boat then took us back to Lugano for the night. The next day we traveled to Florence, Italy for 1 night with a stop in Pisa. We toured the Academy and saw Michael Angelo's David statue. After Florence we traveled to Rome for 2 nights. We toured Rome, the Vatican, the Form, the Coliseum, the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, etc. We had the most wonderful dinner in Rome! After Rome we were in Venice for 2 nights. While in Venice we visited the Murano Glass Factory. We saw a glass blower demonstration. We also toured the Doges Palace and had gondola rides. After Venice we headed to Munich, Germany with a stop in Innsbruck, Austria. Beautiful travel through the Tyrolean Alps. We were in Munich for 1 night then headed to Bingen am Rhine. Beautiful area and our hotel was right on the banks of the Rhine River. We took a cruise down the Rhine for several hours and saw many beautiful villages and castles. After Bingen we headed to Amsterdam for the last 2 nights of our journey. While in Amsterdam we did a canal cruise, traveled to Vollendam with a stop at a working windmill, a cheese factory, and a clog makers shop. We had a very special dinner in Vollendam the last night of our trip. Our tour director was wonderful. She saw that everyone was where they needed to be and made sure that everything ran very smoothly. In each city we had local guides who helped us experience each city in a very unique way. Our bus driver was wonderful as well. He was very helpful and fun and was excellent in navigating the streets and highways to see that we arrived at each destination safely and on time. This trip was very fast paced and is to give you an overview of a large area. Since this was my first trip to Europe this was a perfect way to experience many countries in two weeks. All of our hotels were highly rated and were perfect.I highly recommend Globus. Every aspect of our trip was top notch all the way. I will definitely do another Globus tour in the future!

New England Fall Colors

Recommend: Yes
It was a great vacation! Being from California, this was one of the best places to visit. Going there in early October was the best time to see the awesome Fall foliage. My favorite places were outside of the main cities, like out in the rural areas. Maine was beautiful, especially Bar Harbor and Portland. The Globus tour guide was very knowledgeable even though she was also from California.

The tour bus was very comfortable, the driver was excellent and the Globus guide was very personable and knowledgeable. The accommodations were very good in the larger cities (Glasgow and Edinburgh) and good in the smaller ones. The tours of Stirling Castle, Scone Castle Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Yacht Britannia and the whiskey distillery were very informative. The sheepdog demonstration was great fun to watch. We enjoyed the tour.

So far we have taken only 2 guided tours, both with Globus. We are impressed with the organization, competence, friendliness, and knowledge of the staff. For our next destination we will definitely look at Globus first.

Great Britain

Globus Company Reviews

5.0 June 2016
Recommend: Yes
The Globus tour guide was well informed about little bits of British history and had great stories to tell while we traveled from London to Land's End to Wales, Glasgow, The Isle of Skye, Inverness, Edinburgh, York and back to London. Each day had at least three stops to see villages and historic sites. And the bathroom stops were well planned! The hotels were comfortable and well placed within the cities. To be honest, I wish I had more time to explore all the sights!

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.
