Local Favorites

Local Favorites℠

Every journey tells a story! When you travel the world, you meet interesting people, delve into incredible cultures, seek new experiences - and a story is born. A piece of personal history that will become your favorite anecdote for years to come. So, what’s your story?

A remarkable flavor adds to this narrative when you have multi-cultural companions to live these moments with. You can further enhance it with the new found knowledge gained from a local expert who belongs to the destination and tells you the tales of the land. That’s where Local Favorites℠ come into the picture. This new year, let’s travel around the world and collect little gems so you can discover your own travel stories! Stay tuned, we will bring the hitherto unknown treasures to you...

It could be said that our Local Favorites℠ tour component is Globus’ secret ingredient that makes our tours so unforgettable. Seeing the major sights at a destination is only part of the equation. Doing what the locals do is what journal entries are made of.

Can you imagine taking part in a Buenos Aires tango lesson? Trying your hand at ancient calligraphy in Japan? Interacting with cigar rollers in Cienfuegos, Cuba? These are the types of activities that make up our Local Favorites℠. These exclusive experiences introduces you to a destination’s hidden gems with behind-the-scenes activities.

Here’s an idea of the unique experiences you can look forward to when you book a tour with Globus:
