“Well organised sightseeing ”
- NSW, Australia Mar 2019

Our tour was run by Cosmos. The accommodation was good and our tour guide was very good. Most of the time we had to manage our own food. Sightseeing was well organised with local guides. Global Journeys did a good job organising our booking.

“Great trip through Northern India”
- QLD, Australia Mar 2019

We experienced a great trip through Northern India, with so many highlights it is too hard to mention any one as a standout. The Taj Mahal was a wonderful sight at sunrise followed by the Agra Fort. The forts were amazing and the Palaces were an insight as to how the rich lived years ago. The Ancient Agrasen Ki Baoli as well was a real surprise along with the jeep ride to the desert tribe. We loved Udaipur, it was our favourite city with all the lakes.

“Ultimate South America with Brazil's Amazon”
- QLD, Australia Mar 2019

Our Ultimate South America with Brazil Amazon extension tour was so amazing from the beginning until the end of our journey. It was our fourth tour with Cosmos and we were so impressed with how the schedules were properly planned and well organised. We're very happy with the included excursions this time but some optional excursions were not really worth the money we paid for as we took/purchased all the optional excursions offered.

We were so blessed to have an excellent tour director, Mauro Rubinstein. Our local guides were very enthusiastic and knowledgeable especially Charo, Harry & Moses. South America is such an awesome place to visit. We just cannot pick & choose as to what will be the highlight of the tour. Every place we've been was such a life changing experience.

So many memories to share, places to see and the hospitality of the local people. We highly recommend this Cosmos tour, South America and the Amazon is a must see place to visit. Also, a big thanks to Georgie Walpole at Global Journeys for making it possible for us to enjoy a stress free holiday.

“Great tour guide and a hassle free tour”
- NSW, Australia Mar 2019

We did this tour for my partner's 50th. It not only met expectations but went above. Would recommend it to anyone wanting a hassle free tour of Ireland and would use Cosmos for further tours. Hannah from Global Journeys was very patient and helpful and I hope I can get her next time I am travelling.

“Spain, Portugal and Morocco tour ”
- NSW, Australia Mar 2019 1 Helpful Vote

It was a good tour, tour guide and driver were excellent. Accommodation was not bad, some options on tour were not good especially the dinner. The show was good but the food was not what I expected. Too many tour guides came in and out and that made for confusion, so many of them that five of us got lost as we didn't know who to follow. Anyway, thanks to Paulina.

“Mesmerising Morocco!”
- QLD, Australia Jan 2019 2 Helpful Votes

We really enjoyed travelling in Morocco in Jan 2019 with Cosmos Tours. This tour captures the essence and breadth of so many different places in Morocco. It is a truly exotic, colourful and welcoming country ..... don't leave it on your bucket list: visit it and you will be won over by its beauty / culture.

Our tour director, Anne and coach driver, Mohammed were excellent. They made the tour special and really worked hard to cater to everyone's requirements. We really enjoyed meeting such interesting and inspiring fellow travellers. One cannot go travelling and still come back the same person .... we would recommend this tour to you, our family and friends!

We would really like to acknowledge Madeline from Global Journeys who has been a wonderful help and very supportive in all of our travel preparations. It's a true pleasure and privilege to visit such wonderful places.

“Best of Europe”
- QLD, Australia Dec 2018 1 Helpful Vote

Accommodation good, dinner at Sorrento left much to be desired, but the hotel was good. A big thank you to the other members of the tour, as I was quite slow at times, tagging along behind them. But there was always someone lagging behind to make sure I did not go astray. Alex the guide was good too, and so was our driver. To have travelled to places I've only read about was a highlight, St Peters square Christmas day, Paris for New Years Eve. Snow sprinkled on the fir trees, and up the mountain side, coming out of the tunnel from Lucerne. A once in a lifetime trip, and special thanks to Sherry and daughter Ashley, who booked through Yvonne.

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?

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.

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.
