When Antonio Mantegazza bought a rowboat in 1928 to transport commercial goods across Switzerland's Lake Lugano, little did he know that his small venture would launch the world's leading escorted travel company.
After taking in the natural beauty around Lake Lugano, and realizing there may be travelers who would appreciate being transported around the scenic area, Antonio bought a fleet of 12 motorcoaches. He began running tours in the local area, as well as throughout Switzerland and eventually other European countries. Today, his descendants continue to run the Globus family of brands, which also includes Cosmos (affordable escorted vacations), Monograms (independent packages) and a wide array of river cruises. Combined, these companies carry more than 500,000 passengers a year on six continents.
Globus is truly a worldwide operation, with 32 offices around the world to assist travelers. Of course, when you book an escorted tour with Globus, you'll be accompanied by expert tour directors. These men and women are intimately familiar with the region of the world you're visiting (many are area residents), and they'll share their insider knowledge with interesting commentary along the way. They'll also help you make the most of your free time with suggestions on sights to see and where to eat, and solve any problems that might come up during your vacation.
With Globus, you can choose from fast-paced itineraries that cover a lot of ground, or slower, more leisurely vacations, where you might overnight in one place for several nights. The Globus Platinum Collection of itineraries features superior hotels and a slower pace. Family Vacations by Globus are itineraries that appeal to all ages, with kid-friendly optional excursions and accommodations in the middle of all the action.
The popularity of religious travel has exploded in recent years. So Globus has introduced Religious Vacations, which are escorted, faith-based itineraries throughout Europe, as well as Egypt. Always with Globus, airport transfers are included for all air-inclusive vacations.
