We took the Alpine guided bus tour and as you know, both the tour guide AND coach driver can make a huge difference in the tour. Both our driver and tour guide were fantastic and made the tour great. Everything was organised and taken care of beautifully. Read more

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. Whether you're looking for vacation packages to Switzerland or the best Thailand tours, consider Globus. 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.
