6 Day Scotland tour   0 , VIC, Australia, Jan 2023
The trip was absolutely great as a short intro to Scotland it covered everything and more. The tour guides, accommodation etc were all first class. The two optional excursions were also worth the expense. Overall would highly recommend this tour to anyone that is seeking a good starting point to understand Scotland.
Cairo & Alexandria   0 , NSW, Australia, Dec 2022
A full on tour with lots of temples, pyramids and different sites. The history is amazing. Our tour guide, Bob, was a mine of information and ensured all went to plan. He looked after us from day one and is a credit to the firm.
The group in the tour were very good and we all got on well with each other.

Accommodation ranged from very good to not ...read more bad, however, this is Egypt and you have to make allowances for some of the places where you stay. The places where we had lunches were OK but you had the feeling that you were being taken advantage off. The place where we had the first lunch was a complete rip off and definitely not worth the money. The light and sound show at Luxor was a disappointment and my personal view is that it is not worth the effort to see it as we had a tour of the same area the next day. The continuing need to pay to go to the toilet gets a bit wearisome after a while especially when they ask for $1US at a time. I kept giving them 5 Egyptian pounds. All in all a good tour and glad that I went.
7 day Greece tour     2 , NSW, Australia, Nov 2022
Incredibly well run tour, saw many great things with a good mix of free time and sightseeing. At some of the sights, maybe less explaining and more free exploring would be good. There was really great service, with Anna being very knowledgeable and helpful. Gianni was also a great driver, and very organised.
Wonderful tour of Ireland   1 , WA, Australia, Sep 2022
It was a well organised tour. Everything was fine including optional excursions. The Tour Director Debora was very knowledgeable of Ireland.
12 Days German Highlights     1 , VIC, Australia, Sep 2022
Overall, I would rate it as average. We visited all major cities of Germany and saw the highlights of the cities. The tour bus was comfortable. The tour guide was knowledgeable, but he needs lots of people management skills. He was sarcastic at times and confused us by unwanted description of the daily schedules. He was crawling with the Americans ...read more and basically ignored the other nationalities. Except for a couple of hotels the others were average. When we were in Black Forest, our one room double bed was in the attic, while a single traveler got a 2 bed roomed suite. The dinner menus were average and basically the German food was not that great. Enjoyed the beer.
Frábær Ísland     0 , VIC, Australia, Sep 2022
We were lucky to get to see the Northern Lights on the 2nd night of tour. Unfortunately, we were not so lucky in the last three days because the fog was so thick, we could not see much. The tour director, Holm, was helpful and knowledgeable. The driver did a great job and was able to drive us to places safely despite the thick fog. Geysir is amazing ...read more but the falls are not up to our expectations. I would recommend people to see the falls in Iceland first before seeing other much bigger falls, such as Victoria Falls, Niaga Falls or Iguazu Falls because the falls in Iceland are like miniatures of those giant falls. Overall, it was an enjoyable tour with easy pace.
Western Canada Alaska   0 , WA, Australia, Sep 2022
We enjoyed our tour and cruise. Our Tour Director Alba was amazing. Her knowledge was incredible. Half the hotels were very good and some were below expectations. A hiccup in Jasper with no power and hot water at our hotel and although Alba and Globus tried to find us other accommodation there was none. An uncomfortable 2 days. We enjoyed the itinerary ...read more on both the Tour and Cruise, the scenery was amazing.
More than expected.   0 , VIC, Australia, Sep 2022
I experienced 15 days of exploring some of America's great NPs. Globus made my dream to come true with a tour that was organised very well. We stayed in good accommodations. The dinner cookout in NP was one of my favourites on tour and the Buffalo tour was very exciting. Thanks to Louise, our driver who was very responsible and made it all safe for ...read more all of us on the long journey. And to Daniel, our Tour Director who worked very hard and was very enthusiastic. I was very satisfied with his behavior and attitude to everyone during the guiding of our tour. Highly recommend travelling with Globus.

Globus FAQ's Frequently asked questions for those considering travelling with Globus

Will I be travelling with people from other countries?

Globus 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. The average number of people on a Globus tour is 36, and we limit the number of tour members on our tours to a maximum of 44. Small groups of this size allow you more space, comfort and legroom.

What is a single room supplement?

Single rooms cost extra and are often quite small. We do not take reservations on a "share" basis. Sidestep the single room supplement by traveling with a friend. It is less expensive and much more fun.

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

Travel documents, including any air tickets, tour itinerary, hotel lists, and helpful hints and other information are sent approximately 20-30 days prior to your tour departure. Your Global Journeys Travel Advisor can organise these earlier if you are travelling before your holiday starts.

Can children travel on Globus tours?

An adult must accompany travellers who are less than 18 years old on the tour departure date; the child receives a 10% discount on the land tour price. We do not accept children under the age of 8 on escorted tours, because we have found they are too young to enjoy these holidays. On our independent tours, there is no minimum age requirement.

Am I expected to pay gratuities?

For all departures Globus offer the option to pre-pay your gratuities. This option gives you a greater capacity to manage your holiday budget which means you will no longer need to reach into your pocket at the conclusion of your tour to pay your Tour Director and driver for their service.

Please note that pre-paid gratuities cover only the land portion operated by Globus of the tour itinerary. Where we source other leading operators for cruising, rail or local guided elements of your holiday, the option to pre-pay your gratuities is not available.

What is SafetyNet Protection?

Globus 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, Globus offer an optional SafetyNet Protection policy for an additional fee. Read more here.

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 "Definite Departure" status. Your Global Journeys Travel Advisor will provide more information to you at the time.

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?

Globus 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. Downloading is not available on the coaches but you can do this in the hotels. Please check with the hotel reception or concierge where the free Wi-Fi is located in each hotel.

What can my London Host offer me?

Unlike other tour operators Globus has 50 hosts located at the airport and in each of our London hotels, so you only have to walk to the lobby not half way across London for assistance. Your host is there to help you with all your questions on London, they will provide you with maps, directions and a wide range of tours to ensure you see the best of London. Whether it be a city orientation tour, or dinner and a West End show your host will provide you with all the information and assistance you require.

Can I change my mind after booking?

Should you be uncertain what your commitments will be leading up to your departure, Globus offers an optional SafetyNet Protection policy for an additional fee. SafetyNet Protection must be paid at the time of the tour deposit and is payable per person per booking (not per tour) and is non-refundable . Read more here.
