“Comprehensive tour of Portugal”
- QC, Canada May 2019

Excellent tour from start to finish. Made new friends from California to New Zealand. Accommodations were very good. Learned a lot about the country, did not feel rushed. The Globus coach was very comfortable. Well run tour. Would recommend it to anyone.

“Perfect weather - I got a tan in Switzerland”
- NSW, Australia May 2019 View Photo

Perfect weather and blue skies made the most of our views of the Alps. We were concerned about the heights involved in the excursions but felt safe throughout the trip. Great company on the coach and made new friends to visit overseas. Best coffee ever and chocolates galore. Meals catered for everyone's taste and dietary needs. No problem with language.

“Wonderful tour”
- QLD, Australia May 2019 View Photo

If this is your first time to see Italy, this 11 day Italian Treasures tour, organised by Globus, is undoubtedly a wise choice. The tour includes many attractive destinations so every spot visited was a highlight.

I loved every part of this tour from the beginning when contacted by Global Journeys. It is great, you will be always served by the same tour consultant. We are lucky to have Hannah Campbell who has already organised 3 consecutive years of our overseas holidays. She is great and always replies to emails promptly and patiently.

For the tour in Italy, there was a huge number of tourists at every hot destination so the long waiting lines and big crowds would sometimes get on our nerves, but it indicates that you are visiting the most important venues. The Italian tour guide, “Fabulous”, this is the name our fellow travellers called him. He organised every step based on the brochure.

“A great short European tour”
- NSW, Australia May 2019

The Best of Italy and France tour was a wonderful experience in all ways. Global Journeys and Globus had everything super organised with airport transfers, arranged meeting points and more. It was a stress free way to travel, with a wonderful guide giving insights you wouldn't get as an independent traveller.

Lots of room on the coach and great having WiFi points as well. Accommodation was beyond expectations! The trip was pretty relaxed and gave us the opportunity to see and hear about history and the culture. Loved the variety with entertainment, rail travel and cruises. Cinque Terre was a highlight, as was Venice and Rome. Would definitely recommend this tour and the weather was great.

“Recommend this trip”
- QLD, Australia May 2019

We would recommend our friends to book through Global Journeys. Service was streamlined, had no issues. Only one motel at Niagara Falls we were unhappy with but only there overnight. So not a huge issue.

“Well organised tour with interesting side tours”
- NSW, Australia May 2019 1 Helpful Vote

The tour was very good. Route taken very scenic and interesting. Hotels were generally good. The Mercure Edinburgh is in a great position but is in urgent need of an update. We liked the side excursions which were well organised and interesting. Our guide and driver were fantastic. We felt sad that they were excluded from eating with us particularly on the last night.

“Fabulous Portugal trip”
- QLD, Australia May 2019

Portugal In Depth was an excellent tour. We got to see so much of the country and I just loved it. Everything was quality. The guide was well informed and the coach was new. The hotels were all good as were the meals. A great tour of people. Just couldn’t recommend it highly enough.

“A great tour of Sicily”
- WA, Australia May 2019 1 Helpful Vote

A great tour of Sicily. First time using Globus and was happy with the itinerary and accommodation provided apart from one hotel. Sabrina the tour guide was brilliant and Raphaelle the driver was so skilful driving on the narrowest of roads around bends and up into the mountains. There were only 4 others from Australia on the trip but everyone got on well. It ticked all the boxes for what we wanted to see and the pace didn't feel too hectic. We would recommend.

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

Sightseeing With Globus

When it comes to sightseeing with Globus, we take you right inside the must-see attractions - we won't just zoom by on a motorcoach, giving you seconds to snap a picture.

By using the relationships we've forged over the last eight decades, travelling with Globus gives you VIP access to major attractions. Plus special behind-the-scenes experiences that immerse you in your destination and free time to personalise your trip with optional excursions and activities you can book before you depart.

Superior Hotels

On a tour with Globus, we've pre-screened and selected hotels for their comfort, cleanliness, attractiveness and convenient location, often within mere steps from the greatest cities. For example, while other Tour Operators choose hotels outside of Venice, our Italian tours put you right in the heart of the city!

Furthermore, we know that relaxing at the end of the day is essential when you're on holidays. The last thing you want to do is stand at check-in and wrestle with suitcases. That's why we take all that hassle away – your Tour Director handles check-in and all your bags are delivered to your room. Plus, we take care of the porterage gratuity for you.

Expert Tour Directors & Local Guides

With Globus, you travel in the company of genuine local experts – Tour Directors and Local Guides who are actually from the region through which you're travelling.

They will share their in depth knowledge, as well as point you in the right direction to get the most out of your free time.

Local Favourites

You never have to settle for a cookie-cutter itinerary with Globus. We help you truly experience the world like an insider! Our exclusive Local Favourites introduce you to your destination's hidden gems with behind-the-scenes activities you typically couldn't do on your own.

In addition to Local Favourites, your Globus tour always includes the major attractions. In fact, Globus offers you more included features than any other Tour Operator—plus, by using the relationships we've forged over the last eight decades, you get special VIP access at the must-see attractions.

Globus Tour FAQ's

Frequently asked questions for clients considering travelling with Globus

Before I book
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 (Monograms), 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.

Before I depart
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.

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.

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.

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.

On the road
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.
