After all, we’ve been sharing the world’s destinations with discriminating travelers for almost a century!
No Navigating. No Nail Biting. No Nonsense.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.

Globus tours take the guesswork out of the perfect places to stay with included hand-selected, first-class hotels with the central locations and the comfortable amenities that make you feel at home anywhere in the world. And when more time to explore for less is more important to you than a mint on your pillow, Cosmos tours include expertly vetted and affordable hotel accommodations for value-minded travelers.
Lines? What Lines?
During peak travel seasons, you could find yourself waiting in line for hours to see famous attractions when going it on your own. We think your time is more valuable than that!

Enjoy the perks of touring with included pre-planned itineraries that allow you to skip the lines and sail through popular sights with a spring in your step!
While exploring faith-based historic sites brings you closer to the places where outward signs of miracles and faith occurred, we know the importance of inward reflection as well. Many of our religious tours include opportunities to attend religious services in some of the world's holiest sites – with Catholic Mass, Rosary devotions, candlelight processions, and ample time for meditation and prayer – for an experience that's engaging, enlightening, and insightful. Look for the Mass icon in your itinerary.
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.

From daily breakfast to special lunches and dinner celebrations, your Globus or Cosmos tour is packed with delicious ways to taste the flavor of each destination.
