Why True Travelers Tour.

Is a tour right for you?  Chances are good that the answer is “yes,” as they’ve come a long way from the early days. Boundless styles, pace and variety to captivate both first-timers to a destination and tried-and-true globetrotters. The fact is, tours that were cool back in the day are even cooler now. And with Globus, tours are a fun and easy way to go beyond the guidebooks and the lines, and beyond the thoroughfares to make the most of your vacation. 

Simply put, a tour is a perfectly planned vacation.  Planning a vacation on your own is not easy—from the tedious research to the coordination of reservations and timing to complicated logistics. Add in currency conversions and language barriers and you have one hair-pulling project on your hands. A tour handles all the hassles, while you have all the fun.

There’s No Driving, No Navigating, and No Crying.

Just the thought of foreign taxis, rental cars, train depots, and subway stations makes most travelers teary.  And big city traffic?  No thank you! A tour eliminates all logistical hassles by arranging your transportation around town, between cities, and just for fun. You can look forward to high-speed trains, scenic railways, ferries, day cruises, and more. Aboard our luxury motorcoaches, you can kick back, enjoy the scenery, and even post your enviable journey on social media with free Wi-Fi.

A Tour Includes Everything from A to Zzzs. 

If you’ve ever searched online for a hotel, then you know the countless results can be overwhelming. How do you begin to choose? A tour includes hand-selected, brand-name hotels with the right address and the right amenities. Globus hotels are always first-class and above and near the sights you want to see.

Tours Skip Those Loooooooong Lines.

During peak travel times, independent travelers can find themselves waiting in line at the main attractions for up to six hours – a waste of valuable vacation time. A tour offers a pre-planned, pre-purchased itinerary with VIP access to the must-see sights. Globus travelers skip the lines and bebop on in.

On Your Own, You See. On a Tour, You Do.

Seeing the major sights at a destination is only part of the equation. Doing what the locals do is what journal entries are made of. Partake in a tango lesson in Argentina. Try your hand at ancient calligraphy in Japan. Bake your own scones in Ireland. We call these off-the-beaten-path experiences Local FavoritesSM, and they’re what Globus tours are made of. You’ll find your Local Favorites and the included inside visits listed in our day-by-day itineraries as you start to plan your vacation.

Tours Include an Interpreter, Troubleshooter, and Storyteller.

Only escorted tours include a Tour Director—an expert who lives and breathes your destination and shares their knowledge and know-how with you. More than logistical navigators, our Tour Directors are dynamic narrators. Anyone can notice interesting landscapes or architecture. But a seasoned Tour Director brings those sights to life with the fascinating stories behind them.

Tours are a Feast for the Eyes—and Taste Buds.

Tours typically include many meals to minimize costs and maximize time. Think breakfast at your hotel before a day of sightseeing or perhaps dinner before the theatre so you don’t miss the first act. Globus includes “experiential” dining as well, like lunch at a working Argentine estancia or dinner on a Sicilian farm. With the right mix of included meals and on-your-own dining, you can look forward to a well-balanced culinary journey. 

You Meet the Niftiest People.

In addition to the locals you’ll meet throughout your journey, you’ll enjoy the company of like-minded travel companions equally as excited by the sights, the landscapes, the culture, and the cuisine. Experiencing a dream destination is blissful. Experiencing it with compatible travel companions who share your interests and passions is joyful. 

Tours Save Your Two Favorite Things: Money and Time.

Tour operators have the buying power that individual travelers simply don’t have, saving you up to 30% compared to purchasing all the components on your own. And you can save even more by traveling with Globus during the off-season—just look for Escapes by Globus. And by eliminating lines—and including the must-see sights and the must-get photo ops—you’ll actually have more free time to relax and explore on your own.

Ready to take a journey beyond the ordinary? Let your fingers do the shopping and pick the tour that’s right for you. There’s no easier, breezier way to see the world than on a Globus tour. In fact, your only challenge is narrowing down a destination from our exciting selection of worldwide itineraries. We’ve done the planning. You just do the packing.
