Excellent experience with Globus. The entire tour was awesome and so informative. So much history and the presenter Gavin did a most wonderful narration of all parts of the tour and included music that was so touching to each event that it was representing. Would take another trip with Globus on a heart beat. Thanks

Globus Monogram trip- PERFECT!

Hi Our Globus- Monogram trip to "Paris, Provence and Nice" was perfect. It was everything that was described in the "brochure" but better. Hotels, travel hosts, were all my wife and i could ask for. I would highly recommend Globus, and enjoyed the independent aspect of the Monogram experience.

Taste of Italy with Globus

By: Sibi

Reviewed on: 14 Oct 2017

This was just as advertised...a taste of Italy. Each day was full of activity and we saw so many of the highlights in each city, mixed with time in the countryside. Our coach driver was very skilled at driving in both cities and on narrow country roads. Our tour director handled all of the details thoroughly and we never had to worry about our luggage or arrangements for some of the optional excursions. We are healthy retirees in our early 70's and the days were tiring but we didn't have any trouble keeping up with the nice sized group. Overall, a very well planned tour showing the company's experience in the area of group tours.

Japan Trip

By: Ray

Reviewed on: 25 Nov 2017

It was so-so. Some problems include: 1. Hotel room in Tokyo was very small. While we expected a small room, given the 3 star hotel that we selected, we did not anticipate getting a room that did not have a closet and was generally very cramped. 2. Hotel room in Hiroshima (ANA Crowne) had a tired appearance and was not as clean as we expected. 3. We were not told that on our train rides to Kyoto and Hiroshima, our luggage had to be delivered separately. We decided to keep our luggage with us on the Kyoto to Hiroshima train after seeing what other passengers were doing with their luggage.

We have travelled with Globus several times and always find a well planned agenda and great hotels. Hotel location is always important and with Globus,the locations are always good with good neighbourhoods and close to attractions and amenities. The part of the vacation that wasn't great were the flight times. On arrival to Peru the Miami connection was only 45 minutes which left us scrambling and on return to Toronto we had a 7 hours layover after an overnight flight. In the future maybe some choice could be offered in alternative flight times.

A trip to Cuba may not be the best example of their tours. The bus seat rotation was not kept. The restaurant seating especially in Havana was with tables for four. This made it difficult when you did not have even numbers of individuals wishing to sit together. They included in your tour fee a tip amount but did not spell out exactly how much was going to be allotted to each category. This left travelers wondering if or how much additional you would like to give the parties. The Tour Guide was great. He was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and more than willing to answer all of our questions. We had a safe bus driver. The people to people interaction was very good with the Cuban citizens warm and welcoming.

Lima, Machu Picchu and the Peruvian Amazon - unforgettable!

By: Judy

Reviewed on: 25 Mar 2018

Globus put together a fabulous tour of Machu Picchu, Sacred Valley and Cusco. The tour guides at each venue were top rate, and our accommodations were wonderful. Machu Picchu was one of our "bucket list" destinations, and we were in awe of the site and the intelligence of the Inca people. Our Local Host in Cusco, Jamilet, was excellent! My husband and I have been fortunate enough to do quite a bit of traveling; and Jamilet was the most informative, accommodating and kind Local Host we've ever experienced. Our stay on the Amazon was truly amazing, and the warmth and caring of the people made our stay even more memorable. The only negative for us, however, was the fact that one side of our room was completely open (no screen, net or anything) to the elements and animals; and the other three walls did not go clear up to the ceiling which meant you could hear your neighbors conversations, etc. The daily excursions were, however, informative, fun and exciting!

German Escape

The only problem with Globus is the airline schedule changes which may have be on account that the air reservations was made through Air Canada. I had problems boarding the plane in Cincinnati and Newark on the way to Germany. The gate agent had to research the correct ticket number and confirmation numbers because there were three schedule changes and there were segments that had not been removed. I noticed three days before I was scheduled to leave that there was no reservation on the United website. I contacted my tour guide who contacted Globus. I was told to call United. I called United using the German phone number and I was placed on hold for 5-10 minutes. It was discovered that I was assigned a new confirmation number and no one took the time to tell me. Next time my travel agent Jayme Hood will handle my airfare and not Globus

The tour was great. Jammed pack full. Israel tour guide, Anaka was great! The Jordanian tour guide, Saddam, was over two hours late getting to us! Caused our first day with him to be extremely late!(coming into the motel at 9pm). After that he was fine though his accent made him harder to understand and he didn't use headsets which would have been very good and helpful as with our first guide. Also waiting to see how this tour operator will deal with our Airline mechanical problems which caused us to forfeit our first prepaid night in Tel Aviv. Hopefully they will refund the night's cost as we had no control over the fact that we could not get there as planned. Glad to have the opportunity to go on the trip.

This was our first time to take a river cruise in Europe, and we did enjoy it. We enjoyed the smaller ship vs. ocean cruisers with less passengers. It made it easier to meet our fellow cruisers in the lounges and dining rooms, as well as walking around the entire ship. The cabin was a decent size, as was the bathroom, and we loved having the huge sliding door/window in our cabin for watching the passing landscape as we cruised down the river to each stop. All the stops were quite interesting and, of course, historic. The ship staff was always friendly, courteous, and always willing to help. The cruise director was also very knowledgeable in explaining what to expect at each stop. The food was quite tasty, too. We would definitely use Avalon again.

After a First Glitch, the Rest Went Off without a Hitch

By: RetiredTraveler

Reviewed on: 25 Jun 2018

Despite an initial glitch when we arrived at our first destination (a transfer did not materialize), the rest of our trip was great. Unfortunately, the initial transfer from the airport to the hotel did not happen, we believe, because of a miscommunication somewhere along the line. My traveling companion and I, as well as 3 other people ended up calling the hotel and talking to the tour director about what we should do. Fortunately we all had cell phones that worked overseas. This is a problem I believe Globus needs to correct as it was not the way to start a trip. As for the rest of the trip, it was fabulous. The hotels were A-1!!! Our overnight ferry from Stockholm to Helsinki reminded me more of a cruise ship than a ferry. The second ferry, on an excursion to Estonia, was a bit dreary as it was an older ship with dark woodwork and very little seating. Even with that, we thoroughly enjoyed the trip and could recommend Globus.

This is my third Globus trip and they do a nice job at a reasonable price. We have used several tour operators for various travels over the years, and we find that Globus provides a very solid tour with ample freetime and does it for a very manageable price. In particular, we have found the two US trips we've taken with them (Yellowstone and Yosemite), were a very nice combination of itinerary and price. While perhaps some more time in Yosemite (our most recent trip) would have been nice, none of the other tours we looked at provided any more time in the park. Lake Tahoe, which we never would have considered visiting if it hadn't been part of the tour, was a true gem, and that was a real nice surprise. The hotels and meals aren't on par with more expensive tours, such as Tauck, but were generally sufficient.

The tour guide for the Scandanavia part of the trip had the habit of getting off the bus and striking out immediately at a fast pace. With a group of 38 people if you were one of the last off the bus you were way behind. If you were not a fast walker you get further and further behind. In one instance on the way to an arranged dinner at a restaurant for which he had not given us a name, he turned a corner and when we got there no one was in stight. After thirty minutes of no one looking for us we finally figured out where they had gone. He had done nothing to try to find us for we were standing clearly visible about 1/2 block away. He said he ate outstide and watched for us but he was not outside when we finally found the restaurant where the meal was being served in the basement. He comment when we complained, "Well you got to eat didn't you." He was also negative about the US. The Russia guide was fabulous.

This is our 6th Globus Tour and it was wonderful. There are always a few things in each tour that can be improved but overall it was comprehensive and the tour guide, Adelaide Smitt is wonderful. We had her for the 2nd time and it was great to see and be with her again. I would say there is not enough time in the bigger cities and this is my biggest complaint. We needed more time in Copenhagen and Stockholm. Something to consider for your next Tours. Thank you!

Globus did a good job providing a nice itinerary. Covered a lot of territory in 10 Days. All hotels, except for 1 were very nice and comfortable. Our tour guide, Niki Was a lovely Welsh young lady who was very informative and friendly. Our driver, Kevin was helpful and courteous. would have liked to have been able to swap our time here and there--more time in Inverness, less time on Isle of Skye, however we were able to discover so many charming little towns we would have never experienced if not for the Globus tour. The Globus concierge in London were great. They were always there to answer any questions, help to guide us using the Tube, make reservations, etc. Their service is a Big plus.

I had some issues with: (1) transfer voucher from the airport to the hotel, and (2) with one of the hotels wanting my credit card to charge me additional $100.00 for "extraneous fees" which I refused to give them my credit card on this trip. I would recommend the trip if one likes being on their own with "a lot of free time" to explore; I do not so I was very lonely and did not feel like I was in a group tour most of the time. The food was great. I loved the views--absolutely spectacular! It was fun riding the ferry to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard and I really enjoyed the whale watching in Hyannis. If you go be prepared to be shocked by some of the entry fees--$20.00 to go see a museum. We only had about an hour in New Bedford, RI and I would have like to have seen more of the town, just not enough time to see the New Bedford Whaling Museum which is a very nice museum.

Our tour guide, Ornella, was a pro. She had a big group on our tour, with varied ages and interests and she handled it all with smile. Globus had us getting up early, which was a surprise and not something we expected but we quickly realized that was because they could get us through more sites with less traffic and crowds which was great. Good sites and tons to do with just those on the regular itinerary but great optional excursions too... Especially the farm dinner in Tuscany, the walking tour in Rome, and the gondola ride in Venice. Plus the perks of wifi on the bus and people to help with luggage, ticketing, and entrance fees included. Well worth it.

The Holiday Inn Plymouth was not a good place (poor service & WiFi) & as for all the Hotels WiFi should be included & the service be quick & easy to connect. The Hilton Hotel Newport was out of town & had lousy beds. The Granville Hotel in Waterford was great, quaint good food but lousy coffee as was the case with most of the Hotels,,lousy coffee that is.

We slept with lady bugs & such coming in the cracks thru the windows. The other people in our tour had rooms worse than ours. My 84 yr. old Aunt had a very hard time with the stairs. Their restaurant was very mediocre, as we had to order off a special menu. They did not have adequate shuttle service for the golf carts to carry you back to the main lodge.

In addition, he went the extra step by going with one of our tour members, who was taking an extra excursion to visit relatives on a eight-hour round-trip train journey, to purchase the ticket, and without being asked, arranged an escort and translator for her journey. He also went by himself to purchase a train ticket for another member, because we saw that the way to the train station in Osaka was very crowded. In Kurashiki, he allowed those who wanted, to join him for dinner at a Japanese pancake place, where the proprietor entertained us. In Osaka, he took some of us on a night tour of the street with 3-dimensional signs.

Would have expected more sophistication. Danube river dinner was cheesy and salt mines unremarkable.

Assuming that Globus represents Andy's tours, Blue City Wonders tours and Walks of Italy tours, here are my thoughts: Our guide in Athens was from Andy's tours. He seemed unhappy with his job and annoyed by our questions. We would not use them again. Our guide through the Paris catacombs was from Walks of Italy tours. He was very knowledgeable but also very cynical. Our guides through the Roman Coliseum and the Vatican were were from Blue City of Wonders. Our guide at the Coliseum was fabulous. Our guide at the Vatican had a thick accent and was very hard to understand.

Our Globus Tour Director, Nicholas, was great. Very knowledgeable, personable, and made the trip very enjoyable. Our first time to Italy and it was amazing. Some comments on Globus • Very organized. We got into most major points of interest (Vatican, museums, etc.) quicker than the public. Like having EZ Pass. Our wait times in lines were very short compared to the general public lines. • The excursions are definitely a must to do or at least consider. Those not selecting the extra excursions had free time but I believe the excursion packages let us see and do more in Italy that we would have experienced with the extra free time. Globus gets high marks for their service and experience. Thank you

This was my first experience with Globus, but not my last. Having traveled with Monograms a few years ago to Peru, I was absolutely open to traveling with Globus to South Africa and Zimbabwe. The itinerary was spot on to what I wanted to see and do and I knew the experience would be first class. I absolutely loved the incredibly level of coordination provided by Globus broadly but then on-site by my tour director Linda. The hotels/resorts we stay at were impeccable, the tour guides and tours were wonderful and the transportation top notch. As I was traveling alone, I actually loved the small group nature of the tour -- I left with a bunch of new friends who I had the chance to get to know over these two weeks. And many of the people on the trip were lifetime Globus travelers who could not speak highly enough of Globus.

My family thoroughly enjoyed our 12-day pilgrimage around France. There were too many highlights to include, but we loved touring Paris, Orleans, Rocamadour, Avignon, Carcasonne, Chartres and especially Lourdes. Our tour guide, Corina Moga was outstanding. She was very knowledgeable of all the places we visited and always accommodated our needs beyond expectations. We also had a wonderful driver, Giovanni. The down side of visiting so many places in just 12-days is that you never have enough time in one place, but it was worth the fast pace. The included dinners and Limoge hotel were lackluster, but those are minor complaints compared to the other aspects of the trip. We have now traveled with both Globus (nicer but more costly) and Cosmos (nice & more affordable), and for the price difference we would travel with Cosmos again. Our 12-day France trip cost less than our 7-day trip across Italy. Both companies are excellent, but Cosmos is a better value in my opinion.

Trip to Holland and Scandinavia

Reviewed on: 14 Jul 2017

I have never used Globus, so cannot comment on Globus tours. This trip was with Cosmos, which I understand is an "affordable" subsidiary of Globus. I used Cosmos because I wanted to visit both Holland and Norway, and this tour went to both. The trip was very pleasant and I enjoyed it very much. But for me, the choice of hotels was highly variable. Of the seven hotels used, two (Stalheim Hotel, Flam Norway and Thon Hotel, Bergen Norway} were very good and in excellent locations. The hotels in Amsterdam, Hamberg and Oslo were good but way outside the city centers and thus inconvenient. The "First" hotels in Copenhagen and Gothenberg were minimalist with very small rooms and inadequate services. The tour guide and driver were very good, and the meals provided, and optional trips and meals, were all very good. So overall it was a good trip. But most hotels were below the standard and/or location I expect on a tour, thus I will not use nor recommend Cosmos again.

Yes, in some of them the rooms might be considered small by US standards but the were all of nice. The last hotel in London was brand new and very high tech! Kess made sure that we saw wonderful sites in each location and went out of his was to make sure that if weather was going to be an issue, he re-arranged things so that no excursion was missed.

Overall, these two tours by Globus achieved the high standards we've experienced previously. The tour directors and the coach drivers all had high levels of expertise. The only problem was that the Trip Scales for both CH and CF were level 3 out of 4, and they didn't seem to be anything alike. We found both the number of "one night stands" and the types of terrain covered in CF made for a more physically demanding tour. We would suggest a re-evaluation. We were also surprised in tour CF (0731) by being told only as the trip began that we would need Canadian cash for a number of meals. Fortunately, our travel account was able to handle this unexpected news. And we thought the "picnic" meal was a recipe for disaster, as a coach load of people tried to find portable food not needing refrigeration to carry along for the next day. Surely, a local vendor might have been arranged in advance for the whole group.

Globus Monogram London

By: MW

Reviewed on: 27 Sep 2017

This was the first time using this company. The tours we picked ran on schedule and the local guides were knowledgeable and entertaining. The only thing we found there were too many people on a tour outside of London making it difficult to hear guide and stay with group. Cotswold tours seemed rushed in towns and too many different meeting times to get back on bus. Some suggestions by guide would have been difficult to achieve in time allotted.

My experience was good. However, what I recommend you address for the future is the selection of hotels. I had upgraded the hotels to Venice and Florence, the additional cost was minimal. The Venice hotel upgrade was good. I did not like the location of the hotel in Florence or Rome. I would have liked to be in the Center of the cities. The hotels you include with the cities should be higher end. I did not enjoy the ride to the Naples airport on the last day of my trip. You should have provided more direct transportation. No one in your organization was able to explain to me about the local pick ups along the way to the airport; all I knew was that there was a 41/2 hour window from the time I boarded the local bus to departure to Rome. You did not take into consideration the very long travel day I had. This lack of consideration was very disturbing to me.

I need to preface the fact that I do not like large tour groups as my desired form of travel experience but we were under the gun since Uniworld cancelled my river trip. The itinerary for this trip was lovely but it also was grueling since we were on a bus so much for very long periods of time as well as a 5 hour train ride. The bus driver was an excellent driver - again, I would have preferred a smaller tour and bus! The tour guide was very conscientious but too repetitive about instructions (for even the day of two ahead). This meant that a lot of us began to tune her out because of information overload (mostly instructions and not historical fact) and often conflicting instructions. Addiitonally, there were only two couples and one person from a country (Israel, Australia and Canada) other than the US - really prefer more diversity for such a large group.

This time, we followed the very clear instructions to the hotel, but when we checked in, we did not receive nor could we locate anything about our tour. We later learned the information should have been given to us at check-in, but it was not. I suggest in the future an e-mail concerning where and when to meet the tour guide.

In Buenos Aires, other tour members had optional excursions but I did not. In Santiago, my optional excursion to Valparaiso and Vina del Mar was listed at $175 US. This tour from the tour desk at the hotel as only $61 US. A tour member had prepaid for this excursion and was only charged $61. Why such a big difference in price?

Good tour guide. Did not enjoy group dinners and having to add on extra excursions. Hotel Fuime in Rome, where we had an extra night before tour, did not pick us up at the Port as we had made arrangements. Finally car arrived ( we had advised there was 4 of us) could not accommodate our 4 pieces of luggage and my husband had to hold a large suitcase on his lap all the way from Port to hotel in Rome. Not happy with management as he made excuses.

Was disappointed that we did not get to see the inside of Westminister Abby.

The schedule is very busy and since most of the people on tour are mid 50’s to 60’s and older, I think an afternoon off would help. Several people were just too tired to attend evening excursions that were already paid for. Need a little time to recharge our batteries mid week, so we can enjoy the end of the trip.

We went on a Globus Bus Tour of Italy and I have to say our bus driver Gennaro and our Tour Director Gianluca were exceptional. You could tell that Gennaro and Gianluca worked in the past together. You could see that they enjoyed working with each other during our trip. Watching Gennaro maneuver through the tight, busy roads of Rome, Venice, Casole D'Elsa, Venezia-Gambarare, San Marino, Foligno, Sorrento, Via Assisi and all the sights he took us within those areas was watching a master at his craft. He was pleasant and helpful to all of us in the group. Gianluca, was a wonderful speaker sharing the knowledge of the places we were sight seeing and what was available for us to adventure to within the parameters of each stop. Gianluca has a passion for Italy that rubbed off on us wanting to see everything and not miss anything. His love for Italy added to the excitement of our trip. A bus driver and Tour Director that works well together makes a trip that much nicer. A job well done!

It was stipulated that the bus had to pull over if someone had to go to the washroom. As seniors we should not be expected to tell the whole bus and get embarrassed because we need to go to the bathroom. That Is an unacceptable rule!

The entire trip I could not check in for our flights which is extremely frustrating, particularly the night before we left. The added stress and aggravation were completely unnecessary. When one books such an expensive trip, one expects the best customer service.

Sophie the Tour Director was a absolute gem. So much depends on the role of a tour director that the travel, timelines and details were very well managed. The Cosmos coach driver was safe and a comfortable ride was enjoyed. The tour hotels varied in the size of the rooms and my only comment, regardless of any tour company, is to consider the sanctuary size of hotel rooms. Some hotel rooms do not provide space for two suitcases to be opened at the same time (seemingly)? I pre-booked all optional extras but did not do two of them. So my advice is not to prebook as no refund if one decides not to go. Tour Director and Travel Agent unable to secure a refund.

If this was my first Globus tour it would also be my last.

The rest stops at McDonalds we’re ridiculous. And in many places where we stopped -Llangollen, Gretta Green, Grasmere, etc , there was no guide to help us - just told to come back to the bus in 2 hours or so. We were clueless and exhausted most of the trip. Very disappointed in Globus

I was hoping to see the Great Salt Lake but instead saw sites of no interest to me. The evening tour was boring walking around gardens in the cold. My final irritation was about the bathroom policy. The one on the bus was to be used only in an emergency.

Service was not up to par and food was mediocre. Hotels in rural areas did not have a/c, which shouldn't have been an issue in Switzerland mid Sept., but we experienced a mini heat wave. The included tours and optional tours were very good, but a number of passengers did not take them.

Globus would do well to have aspiring guides shadow him to see how it's really done. Saddam, our guide in Jordan, was the complete opposite. He began the tour by apologizing for his "heavy accent" and it went downhill from there. Case in point, at one historic site, he pointed to a board in English and told us we could read it to learn about the area. We did so and eavesdropped on another guide who was lecturing his group. Seriously! Saddam had virtually no knowledge of any site's religious significance. Bottom line: Money and time wasted in Jordan!

Because of its uniqueness, this was one of the best trips with Globus I have done. This is trip number 12 with Globus. The country guides were knowledgeable and experienced in making sure we saw every animal possible during our game drives.

Trip of a lifetime

Randy Schuster was the tour operator on my recent trip to Hawaii. With 30 years experience, he was able to answer all of my questions with ease. The really nice part was, there were only me and three couples on the December 2019 tour which made the experience really intimate. I couldn't have imagined the trip without him.

Globus Hawaii Land & Sea Package

By: Jennifer R

Reviewed on: 17 Feb 2020

The Globus package gave us a good overview of what Hawaii has to offer. We spent 3 days at the Outrigger Waikiki, right on the beach, and saw a spectacular sunrise there. The Globus reps were friendly and helpful, and put us on tours to Pearl Harbor and the Polynesian Cultural Center. They also got us to the ship, Norwegian Cruise Lines Pride of America. We cruised to Maui, Kauai and the Big Island. Service on the cruise was superb, and all my shore excursions were fun and informative. I especially liked Volcanoes National Park.

You're in good hands with Globus. The high end tours are amazing while the budget tours still offer great accommodation and guides and sight seeing at a affordable rate. Even in dodgy countries you feel very safe and taken care of.

This tour was a lot of fun and well worth the money. We were able to make the most of time available since the tour was well organized and the guides very knowledgeable and accommodating. We also chose three optional excursions that proved to be great choices; the Bird Park at Iguazu, the dinner and Tango show and the Tigre and delta cruise.

Globus is OK

By: Sherry

Reviewed on: 04 Mar 2020

This is the first time I have taken a group tour. I was apprehensive about traveling with so many people but it went well . I was very pleased with our tour guide. Bryce is very knowledgeable, professional and great people skills. I was disappointed in two of the hotels. I felt Globus was using them to cut costs. I was also disappointed when they gave a refund in local currency instead of putting the charge back to our original cards. All 39 of us were refunded in NZD cash. The second refund due, after much debate, they did agree to putting it back on our original charge cards. The credit has not arrived yet. The dinner with the local families was a great experience. I really enjoyed the evening. I also enjoyed the Monogram experience in Australia. Overall I had a good experience but I am not sure I would use Globus again.

Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand

By: Bruce

Reviewed on: 06 Mar 2020

This was a great Cosmos tour. There was only 17 in our group because of the virus, but that was advantage for us. Vietnam was the main portion of the trip and we stayed in very nice hotels and ate at good restaurants. I did two extensions, one to Cambodia and one to Thailand. The Cambodia trip was amazing especially seeing Angkor Wat! Although I have been to Bangkok before I was able to see some sites that I hadn't been able to see the last trip. The hotel there was nice...but the room was like a shoe box and it was buried on a back street in the middle of the financial district. I felt it was more suited for someone there on business. Overall, I would give this trip a 9.

Tour was well planned and organized unfortunately the weather was not. Despite uncontrollable weather situation our excursion leader took every opportunity to alter, with the groups concurrence, our schedule. Thank goodness often times many (especially in Europe) museums and other venues are often free. I’ll take a cozy dry museum over a windy, cold, rainy day city walking tour every time. Alex wasn’t able to pull the rabbit out of the hat every day but he did enough to make the trip memorable and worth it. Thanks Alex!

This was our first guided tour, and we were extremely impressed. We traveled to Patagonia, and covered a couple thousand miles in two weeks. Globus arranged all the transportation, which was like clockwork. They planned the schedule to see incredible sights, including some that would not have been available to us if we had scheduled the trip ourselves. The hotel accommodations and meals were very nice, and the tour director and local tour guides were excellent. Overall, an outstanding job arranging a very logistically challenging trip.
