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.

12-day Cosmos France Pilgrimmage

By: LindaLouAU

Reviewed on: 15 Jun 2017

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

By: Jim

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.

I have reported this via my tour director in S. Africa and with Ilene but once again want you to know that the travel booklet said I would need a notarized letter from my husband that it was ok for our daughter to travel but on arrival at Louisville she was denied travel because I did not have an original birth cert. I was able to get a family member to get to our bank deposit box and return to the air port in time to depart. I hate to think what would have happened if the bank had been closed.

The Globus staff was very professional. When one of us got altitude sickness they helped make arrangements for staying in place, private car to next site where we could rejoin group, had someone meet us at airport when we left group to return to Lima to recuperate. That individual helped us plan alternate activities. Their choice of Metropolitan Touring to provide our ship experience in Galapagos wa perfect. We loved Santa Cruz II!! The Globus staff for city tours in Quito and Guayaquil were very fine. In Guayaquil she let us join the tour last minute. We returned happy from our trip!

Touring with Globus through "Bonnie Scotland" was an unforgettable experience. Our tour guide and driver were highly professional, friendly, and informative. The tour was very efficient and allowed us to see so many different things in just a short week. We definitely want to use Globus for our next trip abroad. Our only complaint was with the some of the hotel accommodations, but the tour guide did his best to prepare us for them, since he sympathized with how poor they were. They were quite limited in their hotel options in certain parts of Scotland, which isn't Globus's fault.

Our Globus experience

By: Fritz

Reviewed on: 25 Aug 2017

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.

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.

Good sites and tons to do with just those on the regular itinerary but great optional excursions too...

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.
