Hello World! Goodbye Worry!

It’s a big world out there—with dizzying options for sightseeing, transportation and accommodations. Why spend hours trying to figure it out on your own when we’ve spent nearly a century perfecting the art of travel planning? With one-stop shopping, you can secure an exclusive experience with all the right inclusions. 

    Explore the Less Traveled

    Beyond the Guidebooks.

    While it might be the iconic sights of the world that first entice us to pack our bags for adventure, it’s often something quite different that beckons us to return—the towns with no traffic, the coasts with no crowds, the nooks with no noise. Globus designs the perfect balance of the hero sights you mustn’t miss and the hidden gems you otherwise would, offering a deeper glimpse into the world’s most intriguing destinations. Join us to veer off the beaten path, break away from the packs, and even break bread with the locals for an unparalleled holiday beyond the guidebooks that you couldn’t create on your own.

    Skip the Lines

    Don’t Miss the Must Sees.

    Why stand in line to catch a fleeting glimpse of ancient ruins and remarkable historic sites that have been standing for centuries? Globus gives you VIP access with an expert Local Guide to go deeper, get closer, and soak it all in. From the Sistine Chapel to Sydney Harbour, you’ll explore the world’s most iconic locations without getting lost in a crowd or waiting in line. Don’t just file past masterpieces or magnificent views with only a hurried look at centuries-old treasures. Experience the world’s extraordinary sights—and historic sites—from Europe to Australia to South America and beyond!  

    Tour Directors & Local Guides

    A Friend in Every City.

    Join us and a few of our friends in your next dream destination. After all, we’ve spent nearly a century making friends in virtually every city and country in the world who share local secrets like where to find the best scone, stein, or sake; the best people-watching table; or the best view of wide-open spaces. Every Globus vacation includes local experts to share the stories behind the sights and local favorites you won’t find in the guidebooks. Globus Tour Directors and Local Guides hail from the region through which you’re travelling. No one is more familiar, passionate, or eager to share insider knowledge than our local pros!

    Local Favorites

    A Local Slice of Life.

    When in Rome—or London, Paris, Manhattan, or Melbourne—we arrange for you to do as the locals do, not just what the tourists do. In every itinerary, we include hands-on, authentic experiences for a true taste of a day in the life. Board a private water taxi through the Grand Canal of Venice, greet a Grecian sunset with a glass of ouzo, find a hidden city in the clouds in Peru, or take painting lessons from nature with an Australian Outback sunrise. Whichever path you choose to explore, you’re sure to step into someone else’s shoes and experience the world from an insider’s perspective on a Globus tour.

    Personalize Your Holiday

    Adventure, A la Carte.

    Maybe you’re an art lover, a foodie, or a history buff. Perhaps you’re moved by music, the theatre, or the great outdoors. We offer a creative menu of optional excursions and activities—tailored to a variety of fitness levels—so you can make your adventure with your own personal passions and preferences. Each Globus excursion and activity has been tested by us and handpicked just for you! You never have to choose between included and optional excursions, since optional activities fit seamlessly with your holiday schedule, and we build freedom into every itinerary so you can stroll, meander, and linger!

    Included Meals

    Craveable Destinations.

    A pan of zesty paella. A bowl of creamy chowder. A cup of chilled ceviche. A cone of creamy gelato. One of the most rewarding ways to experience a different culture is through its unique cuisine. We offer the right mix of included meals and on-your-own dining exploration for a well-balanced culinary journey. Stumbling upon that quiet candlelit café, lively street vendor, or bustling local market can be some of the most memorable moments of your holiday. The best part of waking up is knowing that breakfast is ready! The most important meal of the day is included on every Globus holiday so you can easily fuel up to feed your passions.

    Hand-selected Hotels

    Places of Dreams.

    Goodbye scouring endless online reviews. Hello pre-screened and hand-selected hotels near the sights and views you’ve always dreamed of. We’ve personally visited and reserved the best rooms around the world based on location, comfort, and style—all first-class and above and many with rich histories that are destinations in their own right. Check in perfectly relaxed knowing we’ve already checked everything out. For the duration of your journey, we’ve arranged all baggage handling from coach to hotel to train to ferry. So once you’ve packed your bag, you can forget about it. We do the heavy lifting and take care of the tips, too, so all you have to do is settle in!

    Travel in Style

    Enjoy the Journey.

    Forget everything you think you know about “bus tours” and think “on tour” instead. Like your favourite rock stars, you’ll travel from city to city and village to village in the most modern of comforts. From high-speed and mountain trains to river cruise ships and ferries, you’ll see the world from a variety of exhilarating vantage points. Aboard our private, first-class coaches, you'll enjoy large windows, plush seats, ample legroom, air conditioning, free Wi-Fi, and an emergency restroom. If you prefer the VIP treatment (and who doesn’t?) we can also arrange your flights to and from home with airport transfers for a totally seamless holiday.
