“Terrific Tour of Hawaii's Islands”
- NSW, Australia Sep 2019 View Photo

Did Cosmos' 13 day Hawaiian Islands tour in September/October '19. From arrival in Honolulu (Oahu) to departure from Kahului (Maui) had not one single problem or hassle. The Tour Director was incredible: certainly knew what she was doing; handled a crowd of nearly 50 people with aplomb; and had a quirky sense of humour. Roberts Hawaii provided all the ground transport and they were brilliant: always on time and the tour coach drivers had a plethora of funny tales to tell. Hawaiian Airlines didn't perform quite as well with one of the inter-island flights running late. But Roberts were able to adjust at the other end and we didn't miss anything.

All the accommodations were great with friendly staff and great service. The Ka'anapali Beach Hotel on Maui deserves a special mention. The scenery was as gob smacking as I expected it to be and the optional excursions I took were great entertainment: a couple of luau feasts; some zip lining; and the compulsory helicopter flight over a volcano. Blue Hawaiian Helicopters on Hawaii were brilliant and the video of the flight is well worth the purchase price.

“Italy’s Best”
- NSW, Australia Sep 2019 1 Helpful Vote

Loved our trip and will be booking again in next 12 -18 months for another Cosmos tour. Most hotels were great. Could only find fault with one hotel which wasn’t that great. Tour Director, Daniela was great, fun and very informative. Our driver, Lorenzo was fantastic. He was very friendly and a good safe driver. We felt very comfortable with his driving. We had a great bunch of people on the tour and had a lot of fun together. Only one person on the tour that spoilt things for others as she was never happy with anything and complained constantly about everything. In the end no one could please her so it was best just to ignore the comments and have a good time.

“24 days in the UK and Rep of Ireland”
- WA, Australia Sep 2019 View Photo

Some wonderful scenery along with incisive commentary provided by our tour director Liz, who along with our driver Barry kept us on our schedule. Hotels were by and large acceptable however a couple of them for whatever reason were poorer than others.

“Overall pretty good ”
- NSW, Australia Sep 2019

The pace of the tour was fast, there were times when we were in the coach for 4 hours with comfort stops along the way but still long driving days. The Krakow hotel was dated and right next to a service station and far from anything worth seeing, that was a shame since we were there for 3 nights if you didn’t do the optional dinner you did feel a little trapped. The salt mines were an amazing must see! Auschwitz - Birkenau was incredibly moving and haunting to stand at a place where such atrocities were committed. Overall I enjoyed my time in Poland.

“Greece & Aegean Cruise ”
- VIC, Australia Sep 2019

Good mix of land tour & cruise of Greek islands but too many free days e.g. 1st day is nothing but optional cruise of 3 islands near Athens. After one week of land tour, we returned to Athens for another full day of nothing. Last day after the outer island cruise we again returned to Athens for another day of nothing. So basically 3 full days of nothing.

“Crossed off the bucket list now ”
- QLD, Australia Sep 2019

This was a bucket list tour and we were very pleased to have completed it. The tour was good, the tour director was great and we had a great group of fellow travellers. The optional excursions were all well worth while. The dinner and show in Branson; the dinner and Sandia Tramway in Albuquerque; and the St Louis Arch ride to the top were all exceptional. Hotels were mostly very good with one or two exceptions. As always, Hannah from Global Journeys did an outstanding job with our booking and we will continue to use Global Journeys for all our bookings.

Making It Easy For Solo Travellers

More than one-third of people travelling with Cosmos are single or travelling alone. For that reason, we accept reservations on a "guaranteed share" basis. At Cosmos, we want you to stretch your holiday dollar further so rather than force single supplements, we charge the basic price and match up singles of the same gender in twin-bedded rooms.

For single travellers who prefer the privacy of their own room, single accommodation can, of course, be reserved. Single room supplements are listed on our itinerary pages.

Cosmos Tour FAQ's

Frequently asked questions for clients considering travelling with Cosmos

Before I book
Will I be travelling with people from other countries?

Cosmos is an international company. As such, you will be travelling with like-minded enthusiasts from countries as diverse as the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, as well as Europe and Asia regions.

What if I am travelling alone?

More than one third of Cosmos' clients travel alone. Because Cosmos strives to offer the best value for money, we feel it is unfair to charge an expensive single room supplement without offering an alternative. We therefore can provide clients with a 'guaranteed share' facility. This means that we charge singles the basic per person price and match up singles of the same gender in twin-bedded rooms. If we cannot find a roommate for a tour member who has booked on a 'guaranteed share' basis, we will absorb the single room supplement. For mutual comfort, we do adopt a no-smoking rule in shared rooms. 'Guaranteed share' cannot be offered for pre and post tour accommodation. 'Guaranteed share' basis is unavailable on certain vacations.

What is a single room supplement?

If you prefer the privacy of your own room, this can be arranged for you with an extra fee. Single supplement prices are listed on each itinerary page.

What is SafetyNet Protection?

Cosmos is dedicated to ensuring your trip is worry and hassle free, even when booking. Should you be uncertain what your commitments will be leading up to your departure, Cosmos offer an optional SafetyNet Protection policy for an additional fee. Read more here.

I'm finding it difficult to match two tours together?

Have you considered pre or post tour accommodation? Cosmos offer fantastic rates hard to find elsewhere and this may enable you to select sequential tours with minimal disruption to your intended travel plans.

What does the tour cost include?

Our packages take in each destinations's most popular highlights. They are carefully planned to include visits to places of interest and panoramic drives through areas of natural beauty. There's so much for you to look forward to!

Before I depart
When can I expect to get my travel documents & itinerary?

Cosmos provide e-documents (electronic docs) as an eco-friendly alternative to printed travel doscuments to strengthen their commitment to environmental sustainability. Your e-doc's are sent by us to you approximately 21 days prior to your tour departure. We can organise these earlier for you if you are travelling before your Cosmos holiday starts.

Am I expected to pay gratuities?

It is customary worldwide to pay tips to Tour Directors and Drivers on all international vacations and these are not included in your quote. The option to prepay these tips prior to departure is possible however. Please ask your Travel Advisor to include this in your quote. You will receive gratuity vouchers with your travel documents and all you need to do is give this to the Tour Director, Driver, Cruise Director at the end of the holiday.

How much luggage can I bring?

Porterage for one suitcase per person travelling is included in the holiday price. Airport and train station porterage is not included. Your single bag should not exceed the dimensions of 76 x 53 x 28cm (30" x 21" x 11") and weight of 22kg (50lbs). Carry-on luggage is limited to one bag per person travelling and must not exceed the dimensions of 30 x 28 x 14cm (12" x 11" x 6"). For safety reasons, wheeled carry on bags are not suitable and will not be permitted as hand luggage on the coaches. Carry-on bags must be small enough to store in overhead bins or under the seat of you.

Can I book optional excursions before travel?

You can pre purchase selected optional excursions for your tour between 90 and 10 days prior to departure, on departures which have been placed onto a "Guaranteed Departure" status. Your Global Journeys Travel Advisor will provide more information to you at the time.

On the road
What are the standard bed configurations?

Every effort is made to reserve only twin-bedding room. Occasionally, some hotels will only provide double-bedded rooms. These rooms will be allocated to couple where possible. If your preference is for a double bed, please request this at time of booking. Please note that as we do not own the hotels, and it is the hotels themselves that undertake the room allocation, double rooms are only a request and cannot be guaranteed.

Are there laundry facilities?

Most hotels offer a laundry service, however it can sometimes be costly. Alternatively, some cities offer Laundromats.

Is there Wi-Fi on the coach?

Cosmos coaches offer free wireless internet connection whilst touring. This allows you to browse online and share your experience with your friends and family back home. We need to highlight free wireless availability in coaches is not offered on local coaches used for transfers or occasionally for sightseeing tours. Wireless service is not available in some countries and certain regions of other countries that do not have Wi-Fi service coverage.
