What makes a Globus traveler?

Here’s what our customers have to say about us.

Mr. and Mrs. NETARWALA

The Cosmos tour to Japan, our first, came as a pleasant surprise. A big shout out to our Tour Director Yuki. He was excellent - amiable, knowledgeable, always helpful and spoke good English - a big help in Japan where the locals have a poor grasp of the language. The hotels where we were put up by Cosmos were good and had decent sized rooms - an issue that is often a problem in Japan. The transportation and logistics were very good too.

We would be remiss if we did not mention here that we were overwhelmed by the helpfulness and kindness of the local populace. Although language was an issue, it never really impinged on our ability to move around freely. Visiting places of interest, using google maps and google translate was fairly easy. We were even brave enough on arrival at Narita airport, to use public transport to reach our hotel. On the odd occasion when google maps got it wrong, the locals were beyond helpful, using sign language and even escorting us to our destinations on occasion.

Very satisfied with the Cosmos Splendors of Italy tour. Everything went of very smoothly. The itinerary - sites, excursions, schedule of stops, especially the smaller towns in between overnight stops were fantastic.

The Splendors of Italy Tour
We had a wonderful time with Avalon. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. The ship staff were extremely courteous and were always ready to serve with a smile. We had a very large choice of food during every meals. Our Cruise Director was fantastic, ever smiling, ever watchful to provide information / services needed by all. He almost spoilt us with high quality service. We had very well planned and executed excursions, they gave us a wonderful bird’s eye view of the places we visited. The local guides we had on the tours were also extremely knowledgeable and ever willing to provide information and guidance. Our Ship Cabins were extremely comfortable. Though it was a small ship, it had all that we needed during our cruise. Overall - TOTAL CUSTOMER DELIGHT !!! We would love to use Avalon again for our small ship cruising needs.

The tour was very well planned & well organized. The Globus team were always available to clear all our doubts. On all the days tour started on-time. Our tour director who belonged to the same region had an in depth knowledge of each place we were passing through. He explained in detail with relevant history pertaining to the place. That has given more colors to all the places we visited. We were a mixed crowd where people were from different parts of world. We had a tremendous interaction & all were happy to share their experiences. Throughout the trip we did not have to worry about the luggage as it was efficiently taken care of. The experience we had with the Globus tour was far beyond our expectations and is a trip which we will cherish always. I will recommend this tour to anyone who want to relax and enjoy their holidays.

Just a note of appreciation for a wonderful holiday with Avalon. Eleven of us, veterans and wives from the Armed Forces of India thoroughly enjoyed the warm hospitality and impeccable service of the crew on board the PANORAMA for the Rhine Cruise. It was the most relaxing yet eventful of all our cruising experiences. We have recommended this absolutely must-do holiday to all our friends here. We would certainly like to cruise with Avalon again.

To visit South America had been a long cherished dream, confused with safety and security issues. My friend from a travel agency highly recommended Globus. All I had to was to choose an escorted tour from a hefty brochure and everything was taken care of – from carefully chosen hotels to a range of restaurants and sightseeing tours. Globus’ hotel selection is on point right through with picturesque, well-situated hotels that are amazingly adept at checking in 30 people at once in no time and providing large rooms and beds replete with a huge collection of pillows. Our Tour Director, Fernando Bordallo, brought with him 31 years of experience. He efficiently orchestrated all the tours and transfers with precise instructions on the how, where and what of each destination so that the large group seemed to move as one. Our travel companions were from all over the world, from the US and Canada to the Philippines and beyond. We learnt so much of their lives and families over shared meals and coach rides, adding a new dimension to our travels.
Spirit of South America
Globus provided the most doable and experiential tour program with an able tour director having many years of trustworthy experience beyond destinations. I am into urban designs and landscapes so Bilbao as a city of Urban transformation was a treasure trove. Visiting and knowing more about Guggenheim was a delight.
Lisbon & Northern Spain
Because of the excellent itinerary of Globus, they covered all the historical places in Greece which I've always dreamed about. My previous experience with them was of their efficient services. For me, the highlights of the tour were to visit the museums, the Parthenon and the beautiful islands of Mykonos & Santorini.
Classical Greece with Aegean Cruise
It was indeed the best trip beyond any shadow of doubt. From accommodation to coach, everything was class apart. Met beautiful people who were as caring as my own people. All the hotels' rooms were neat, clean and offered sheer comfort after excursions. All excursions were spell bounding and the information shared by the tour director was worth noting. The Spanish Escape was actually worth escaping!!! In love with the windy Spain... The stories that Spain unfolds defines it's glory... From cityscape to the farms and monuments, there are stories in every nook and corner of this magnificent country. Thanks to everyone who made this vacation worth remembering.
Spanish Escape
Our Globus Tour gave us a taste of many things Iceland has to offer. Despite being the last departure of the season we had a full coach of 42 people. Albeit being a fast paced tour, we covered all the must see places at Iceland. A big blessing is to have dinner included for all the 7 nights - even for a vegetarian like me. We had an amazing guide Ms. Holmfridur - who is also a wildlife photographer. She had some folk tales to tell us while the bus was in motion & very patiently answered all our questions. The hotels chosen were some of the best ones in terms of location & comfort - Hilton Nordica is presently the best hotel in Reykjavik.
Iceland Adventure
We loved the way it was structured and covered most part of spain, and the great fun we had along with all the co-travellers. Our tour director was pretty good at his work and made us comfortable and I can’t miss to mention Jesus, our coach driver who was such a gentleman.
Spanish Fiesta
Our back-to-back Globus tours were well organized and managed with itinerary that was planned with special care to allow us to experience each country properly without any hurry. The biggest highlight were our Tour Directors, Brano and Valleria, who were very knowledgeable and always willing to help.
Austria, Croatia & Hungary
On my European vacation, Globus made me forget all the hassles faced while traveling especially language barriers. Instead, what I got to enjoy was the beautiful culture, art, and architecture of Eastern Europe including great local restaurants and entertainment. With immense attention to detail, I fully recommend a Globus holiday!
Hidden Treasure of Europe
Everything from arrival to final departure was arranged in a professional way. Tour Directors were well versed in their handling of multiple requests, knowledge of the places, and generally looking after the interest of all tour participants. The back-to-back tours worked out well for us as we were planning to visit all the countries covered by these vacations
Now that we are back from our Globus tour South American Odyssey, I thought I would let you know how much we enjoyed the experience. The Amazon pre tour extension was really interesting, and the eco lodge we stayed at was comfortable though basic. The night safari looking for crocodiles under an eerie full moon was thrilling. The Iguassu Falls were truly awesome and Rio was like any big city. The highlight of our tour was Buenos Aires, the tango show and Bariloche and the lake crossing to Chile, which we would never have discovered on our own. The post tour extension to Peru's Cuzco and Machu Picchu was truly unforgettable. We stayed at some lovely hotels too, and all the travel arrangements were perfect. All in all a wonderful experience, history and culture brought to life excitingly by Christian, our excellent Tour Director. Thanks so much for recommending this tour. I will recommend it to my friends.
South American Odyssey
Our experience with Globus was excellent. We had a very good time on the ‘Spain at Leisure’ vacation. Out Tour Guide was well informed and accommodating. We got to visit all the important locales in Spain. I recommend Globus and would travel with Globus again.
Spain at Leisure
We must confess that our tour of California with Globus was truly the best in all respects – great hotels, an excellent and committed Tour Director (who also had a great sense of humor!), and a vacation that was planned so that both the travelling and sightseeing’s happened leisurely, without feeling hurried at any time. We loved the opportunity to mingle with people from various countries and cultural backgrounds and we plan to take our next vacation to Europe with Globus again!

We travelled to Japan & China with Globus last summer. Not only did we get to see all the important places, but Globus also arranged visits to an embroidery and silk factory and a Tang Dynasty show which were exceptional. The hotels in which we stayed were also centrally located and comfortable. We look forward to taking more Globus trips again!

This is out second tour with Globus after Central Europe – that in itself speaks volumes on its quality – with great hotels at excellent locations, superlative guides who have tremendous knowledge, comfortable coaches, and a well-planned itinerary. I assure you that once you sample the Globus experience, you will never come back disappointed!
