“Cape Cod And Islands”
- WA, Australia Sep 2017

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.

We like to do a bit of exploring on our own, but don't like the hassle of organizing all the mundane stuff. There was no place below to rate the coach driver, so I just want to say that Michael was wonderful. Funny, helpful, courteous - just a great guy! Negatives: At the Lobster and...read more

“Excellent tour”
- Australia Jun 2013 1 Helpful Vote

Tour itself was excellent...only let down was the Boston hotel. The room was noisy and old, and the bathroom was so small you had to climb over the toilet to get into the shower. There were loose fittings in the bathroom including the power point (which was dangerous). The air conditioning didn't work and they messed up the breakfast vouchers so we were only allowed a continental breakfast on the first day. This was rectified for the subsequent days when the tour director arrived and Globus did...read more
