“In safe and experienced hands ”
- TAS, Australia Jul 2019 View Photo

This was my first time on a coach tour and it won't be my last. The pace was quick but our guide made sure we saw the best and made the most of every minute. We didn't have to worry about a thing, and only had to focus on enjoying ourselves. Our guide in particular was very knowledgeable about European history and politics. She also used her extensive experience to get us to locations before the crowds, making sure we were well prepared.

“Grand Tour of Britain and Ireland”
- IL, United States Jul 2019

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour with Cosmos. Our tour guide (Andrew) and coach driver (Steve) worked extremely well together. The sights we saw were nothing short of fantastic, but Andrew added so much more with his commentary and stories along the way! We did all but one optional excursion, and they were all excellent. These optional excursions added so much more to our trip!

Probably the only complaint we had was not being able to spend enough time in some of the larger cities, but I guess that comes with the territory as we needed to be on the road to our next destination. I would not recommend staying at the London Novotel West. Our room had no air whatsoever (i.e. it was broken), it had a broken mini-fridge, and the room had an overall dirty feel to it. To be honest, we couldn't wait to leave our room at that hotel each morning. Aside from that one hotel, the others on our journey were perfectly fine.

“Amazing Fjords in Norway ”
- NSW, Australia Jul 2019 2 Helpful Votes View Photo

An amazing, beautiful and unforgettable experience we had on the Focus on Scandinavia tour with Cosmos. The highlights were the Fjords in Norway and hassle free bookings with Global Journeys with the help of Yvonne. Sure we will plan for another trip soon. Our tour director Anna Losonczi and Csaba our tour driver did a wonderful job. Our tour went so smoothly. Thank you for all the job well done.

“Great tour”
- TAS, Australia Jul 2019

We thoroughly enjoyed our coach tour of the Rockies. Booking online with Global Journeys was very easy and efficient. On the tour our guide Dan was very knowledgeable, not only about the area in which we were travelling, but he also gave us lots of information about Canada generally, all the while keeping us entertained with music, DVDs and the occasional quiz. Our driver Keith was courteous, helpful and always cheerful, but most importantly, a careful driver.

We loved how this tour had four free days which broke up the routine of early starts and sometimes long days on the coach. Those long days though were well paced with frequent stops. The accommodation was excellent with one exception being the Sandman in Vancouver. Some guests had good rooms, others not. Ours was small with no fridge or microwave. The air conditioning was noisy. The location of the hotel was good, however. We fully recommend this Cosmos coach tour.

“Exceptional holiday to Canada and Alaska”
- NSW, Australia Jul 2019

We had a wonderful, well organised holiday through Canada and Alaska. A coach full of only Australian tourists, who, apart from 2 people, all continued on the cruise. Great friendships made and good times had by all.

Why you should choose to travel with Cosmos on your next adventure

Value Packed Touring At Down-to-Earth Prices

With 90years experience in planning itineraries and guiding holidays worldwide, you'll enjoy the benefits, security and convenience of escorted touring with Cosmos.

You can visit exciting cities at remarkable prices - Cosmos trips include accommodation in three star (or better) hotels, transportation including first class coaches, rail journeys and cruises, visits to must-see sights, an expert Tour Director, porterage and plenty of leisure time to explore.

Travel The Way You Want

Just as the world is wonderfully diverse, so too is the way you can experience it. With Cosmos, trips are designed to offer you the flexibility, choices and pace that best fit the way you want to travel.

From focusing on one specific region, to experiencing a variety of cities or countries, there is a travel style to suit you.

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.

Getting Around

Cosmos offers you the best ways to see the world - from our private first-class motorcoaches to walking tours with Local Guides, from scenic day ferries to overnight Aegean cruise ships, from cable car ascents to spectacular train rides and panoramic drives through areas of natural beauty.

There's so much for you to look forward to! You'll get to see some of the world's most magnificent sights while travelling in comfort.

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. 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.
