Fantastic Croatia and Albania     0 , VIC, Australia, Nov 2023
Wonderful group of people (28 of us) with a large age range. Everyone got along and Alex, our guide was great. Had a few rainy days but that didn’t dampen our spirits. Itinerary was well thought out with just the right amount of free time. Would highly recommend this trip or any with Globus as I had no complaints at all.
A really well organised trip with very good guides in Japan   1 , QLD, Australia, Sep 2023
From the outset the administration and communication from Globus was excellent. We loved the "app" that gave us al the info we needed. We were fortunate that my wife and I were the only people on the tour so we had a wonderful one on one experience with each of our guides in Tokyo, Kyoto, Hiroshima and Osaka.

Each of the guides of had their own highlights ...read more and destinations they wanted to show us; all were very acceptable - I guess the history of Japan demands an appreciation of that history however I think a little more view on contemporary Japan might have broken up the historical view. 3 of the 4 guides had excellent English and were really happy to provide ideas for the days they weren't with us. Thanks again.
Amazing tours of Kenya and Tanzania     0 , ACT, Australia, Sep 2023
The tour operators, drivers and hotel staff were amazing. The accommodations were delightful and the locations beautiful. Do book with Globus! Everything was taken care of.
Beautiful desert landscapes   0 , NSW , Australia, Sep 2023
We ended up a small group of 15 - many had cancelled due to extreme heat warnings but most places are air conditioned and it is a dry heat so it was very tolerable. All our hotel locations were close to shops, restaurants, and trails. We had a wonderful tour guide, Craig, who incorporated music to fit the destination and had a wonderful sense of humour. ...read more Highlights were Papago Park, Desert Botanical Museum, 2 nights in Sedona surrounded by beautiful red cliffs that shimmered at sunrise and sunset; Petrified Forest; Painted Desert; Canyon de Chelly with a Navajo guide, and Meteor Crater. There was free time in the Grand Canyon for doing walks or an optional helicopter ride and Williams and Winslow had so much character, being on Route 66 with neon lights, live music, and a very laidback atmosphere. Our coach driver Ray kept the coach meticulously clean and we had a great group of fellow travellers. Jemma provided a hassle-free booking as always and this was my 2nd Globus tour this year that was outstanding, so looking forward to another one next year.
Beautiful introduction to Italy     1 , VIC, Australia, Sep 2023
This was a great experience; made all the better by the super helpful tour director Ursula Pinna. She catered for everyone with patience and good humour. The places we visited were out of the normal crowded destinations and the local tour guides were knowledgeable and professional. My highlights were the truffle hunt and the visit to the mountaintop ...read more village of Bagnoreggio. I would recommend this tour to anyone.
Scenic Norway with Globus     0 , Qld, Australia, Aug 2023
Firstly I have always used Global Journeys in Noosa for my tour bookings and really love using this company. I have travelled with Trafalgar four times previously and had a wonderful time. Sadly they couldn't accommodate my request as a solo traveler. So I went with Globus, which was a completely different experience. Globus is supposed to be a step ...read more up from Trafalgar, yet I found no difference in the standard of accommodation or the coach. There were more evening meals included but that was paid for in the increased cost of the tour.

Globus appears to provide a different service to Americans than other nations. We the 'non- Americans' - noticed that the American tourists were all carrying wheeled carry-on luggage. These bags were loaded on and off by the driver. I had phoned Globus Australia to be told very firmly there were to be no wheeled carry-on luggage, with all other 'non- Americans' stating the same ruling. Struggling through airports and ongoing travel with a handbag and shoulder bag was extremely difficult.

Norway was a beautiful country, and the pace of the tour was fine. Although the guide kept quoting all costs in American Dollars or Euro; Norwegian the currency is Krone. It became rather frustrating to be converting from Euro/AUD. The accommodation was clean, though the rooms were extremely small, they did provide some spectacular views! The coach was very full, more so than the Trafalgar tours with seat rotation a time for aggression. Quite upsetting at times. Now that I am home and reviewing the photos, I can appreciate what an awe-inspiring country Norway really is. I wish the tour guide had been able to generate more interest and enthusiasm in the history and culture of Norway. Absolutely include Norway on your tour list. But my opinion is as a 'non-American' not with Globus. Tusen Takk!!
Canadian Rockies     2 , CO, United States, Aug 2023
This journey was dream like. I couldn't have asked for better weather, nor a better tour director and driver...and my travel mates were amazing! We got to be great friends by the end of the tour. I cannot say anything negative about this gorgeous and breathtaking tour.
Rocky Mountain tour with Globus and Rocky Mountaineer   0 , QLD, Australia, Jul 2023
Globus tours are no where near as good as Insight Vacations. Very few meals included but Whistler was the best stop we had. Rocky Mountaineer Gold leaf train trip was a total waste of money, service was horrible, Glass roof was dirty and scratched, meals were ok but once back in the sitting cabin your lucky to get a drink.
