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. I love how this trip was seamless for me -- I barely lifted a finger and had the chance to focus my attention on having fun and seeing the world.

Our trip to cuba included visits to a ballet school, visiting with local fishermen, many musical groups and learning the local dances, and a visit to Havana and the "old cars". The history of Cuba was everywhere. We visited Guantanamo, San Juan Hill and the Bay of Pigs. In addition we learned of the many heros and their quest for independance through the years. The choice of Paladars was always very good. The food was excellent and the management was always went out of their way to make us feel welcome.

Spain was full of great beauty, colorful history, gracious people, delicious food (especially in Barcelona), fabulous art and architecture.  Highlights included the Alhambra in Granada, Gaudi architecture in Barcelona and Valencia's modern new buildings. Globus did an excellent job touring us over 1,100 miles in 8 days through 6 cities; our tour guide was cheerful and knowledgeable about every city.  The special tour guides were mostly top-notch; the guide at the Prado was a true scholar. The hotels were terrific--clean, modern, spacious and hospitable.  Globus took care of every luggage detail.  The hotel breakfasts were fabulous and the group dinners were fun.  Our co-travelers were courteous to travel with. The trip was well-organized and we were escorted to wonderful places we wouldn't have found on our own; the mood was festive throughout.

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. I definitely loved the views--just spectacular!

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.

The Lodge was old & historical BUT, remove it from your list!! The room we had was up 3 flights of stairs & the floor was slanted down on one side. 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. We waited 25 minutes for it to come back. The dinner in Montreal was TERRIBLE!! Food was misrepresented & bad, service was bad. All agreed.

The Essential Britain tour was fast paced. We covered 2000 miles throughout the UK. Our tour director was knowledgeable in the history of the areas we visited. He made a special effort to include a stop at Hadrian's wall which has not on the itinerary. The local guides were excellent in all cases, giving us additional insight into the history and life of each community. Hotel accommodations were very nice and adequate for our needs. Overall, we were satisfied with our experience but wished we could have stayed longer in Liverpool, Inverness. These were cities that we arrived late in the day and had little time to explore.

Globus did a very good job

We had a superb tour guide Abaddi, an excellent driver Manuel and a great itinerary. The only annoying thing was carrying all our luggage onto and off the Spain to Morocco ferry. There has to be a better way of handling this for us seniors. The itinerary was energetic but so interesting and almost all of the hotels so usefully situated in the cities and towns we visited. Highlights for us were Fez and Barcelona. It was one of the best Globus tours we have been on. Well done Globus.

Our tour director in Japan, Hiro, was one of the best I've met, very professional and knowledgeable. He often re-arranged the order of the activities to avoid the crowds, which we saw as we ended our activity. 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. Neither of these two excursions were listed in the itinerary, but they were the highlights of the tour for some of us.

Itinerary was perfect. Hotels and restaurants that Globus used were excellent. Only negative was that our tour guide, although very knowledgeable, tended to pace the walking portions of the trip as a route march and did not consider the age of those in our group. When someone commented on the pace he said it was good to set a fast pace. Also, would liked to have spent more time in Niagara Falls and Montreal.

Central Europe Tour was very ambitious and aggressive in its itinerary but would not eliminate stops. Tour Director was ok. Could have been accessible and engaging. Delivery was monotone. Could have edited his talk time. He wasn't always informative. Hotels were generally nice. Berlin hotel rooms were too warm despite requests for cooling. Budapest and Prague hotels were not in desired locations and not near major sites. Arranged dinners were ok but food was too common for a luxury brand such as Globus. Would have expected more sophistication. Danube river dinner was cheesy and salt mines unremarkable.

Mixed results

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
