The accommodation throughout was excellent with spacious twin rooms. Breakfasts in all of the hotels was of a good standard. The coach provided was very comfortable and the driver was pleasant and skilled. Out tour director was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and very enthusiastic in showing us his country. We all learnt a great deal from the tour director ( Rui ) as he was able to answer any queries and questions put to him. He was at all times jovial, gracious and inclusive with all passengers.

Schedules were all adhered to and the days itinerary was presented and explained to us prior to departure or on the bus as we left for the day. Rui was very concerned with client comfort and went out of his way to point out amenities required along the route and offered a variety of suggestions for our free time. The local city guides were also pleasant and knowledgeable and provided us with plenty of local information, history and anecdotes.

We were very lucky to have a wonderful tour guide, Sheryl Evans. She was very enthusiastic, helpful and knowledgeable, having lived and studied in the countries we visited.Our driver was another star being very careful and able to get the bus to do amazing things in very tight spaces. Hotels were very good except for the Mercure in Salzburg which was definitely not up to Globus standards. After receiving complaints from tour members and Sheryl, Globus compensated us by giving a free excursion.

The highlights for me were waking up in Zermatt and looking through my bedroom window to see the first snowfall of the season and the Matterhorn. What a sight! I also loved a visit to a Swiss farm where we had a fabulous dinner and just as we arrived a little calf was born. We were able to see its first steps. On the whole a most delightful trip.

One of the most memorable tours in our life time. The game drives and sunset watching cruise were the highlights of the tour. It's a humbling experience to see wild animals in their natural habitats. and, we could not ask for a more spectacular view than watching the sunset on the Zambezi river. It was priceless. Our tour guide Linda was very knowledgeable and well organised. She ensured we had a wonderful time, safe and the tour, particularly with the border security, ran smoothly. The hotels, including the service and inclusive meals, were excellent. We loved every bit of it. Many thanks to Global Journeys and specially Georgie, who ensured the tour arrangements went smoothly. We will definitely recommend the tour and Global Journeys to our friends and family.

Amazing trip and thanks to Hannah who made it all possible. Hannah was very helpful and always got back to me if I had a query. Thank you Hannah. The sites we visited were beautiful and well selected. It was a memorable experience that will be with me for ever. The accommodation at some hotels could have been better. Simple things like a kettle to make a cup of tea/coffee and some hotels did not have a tissue box.

Thoroughly enjoyed this 8 day tour. Tom and Mark worked hard to make this a smooth and interesting trip, especially the need to use ferries a few times. Waiting in line can be busy and tiresome but we always managed to stay as a group. Would have liked a bit more time in Newport, perhaps making it a 9 day tour? Overall experience with Globus very satisfactory.

This 8 day trip was one of the best coach tours we have ever been on. It was excellently paced with plenty down time. Our guide Sven and driver Ray were excellent and very knowledgeable about each place we went to. The scenery throughout was absolutely spectacular. We thought the two days we had in the Grand Canyon would be the highlight of the trip for us, but it turned out that each day brought more and more delights our way.

Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park and Antelope Slot Canyon provided beauty of a different dynamic. Each were wonderful in their own special way. If you love nature, you will be blown away by this tour. Eight days of magnificence. Best value trip ever.

We would definitely use Global Journeys again and will next time we travel. Hannah our travel agent was wonderful and always ready to answer our questions. Every day on our bus trip through the East Coast of America was an exciting adventure and we also enjoyed meeting new friends. The bus was comfortable and we always felt safe. The extra nights in New York are a must and we’re pleased we had an extra 6 nights. Quebec was a highlight of the trip with the old buildings that take you back in time.

I thought this would be an interesting trip but for anyone interested in history it really was. Seeing the worst of the Nazi regime at Auschwitz was horrifying but seeing how the countries we visited had improved their lifestyle since the fall of communism was encouraging. The constant changing of currencies was something to be prepared for. Hotels on the whole were very good and the food enabled us to try the local dishes. I did quite a few of the excursions and particularly liked the salt mine a and the gypsy music on our Budapest dinner. Our tour guide was, unfortunately not the best. He seemed to be quite uninterested in giving a lot of information and when we were off the bus we hardly saw him?

This was a great tour. Booking through Global Journeys was stress free and capably handled by Jemma. She provided very good service and answered my questions promptly. The tour itself was very well organized. A well-oiled machine comes to mind. Suitable for all levels of physical capability. Sit back and enjoy the scenery or go off for a hike, whatever pleases you. Appropriate rest days between the more active days. Our tour guide Phil was excellent and passionate about what we were seeing. A bucket list item with a big tick. You must go there....it's unbelievable!!!!!!

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.

Globus FAQ's

Some of the frequently asked questions Globus receive from their clients
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 Tour Consultant 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 we 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.

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 Tour Consultant 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.

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.

I'm finding it difficult to match two tours together?

You can add pre/post tour accommodation to your reservation. This price does include breakfast on Globus tours. Please note that hotels are subject to change but by booking your pre/post accommodation with us this ensures that if your hotel changes then we will try to change your pre/post accommodation to the same hotel. On the rare occasions that there is no available then alternative accommodation will be reserved at a hotel of equivalent standard. If this does occur than the transfer between the hotels will be at our expense.

Why is my contact information collected when I book?

There may be times when unforeseen events beyond our control impacttravel schedules and potentially disrupt cruises, tours, or packages. These include, but are not limited to, severe weather conditions, acts of nature, and government travel advisories. Under such circumstances, it is critical that Globus be able to contact you immediately and reliably - including nights, weekends, and holidays - to make sure we've informed you of any possible changes to your travel.
