My sister-in-law and I set out to visit England, Scotland and Wales on the Real Britain Britain with Trafalgar tour. It was a great adventure. London is my favorite city but I never ventured outside of the city to see other parts of Great Britain. My sister-in-law had never been abroad so this was the perfect tour for us combining the old with the new. We began with a 2 night stay in London where we had free time to explore on our own admiring the royal palaces, cathedrals and parks of this great city. This itinerary includes a city tour led by a local specialist.
A new form of travel is emerging. Tour companies care more about giving their clients the chance to make genuine experiences and create memories, rather than just see the âbigâ stuff. In 2017, Globus noticed that Italy, once the busiest tourist spot, had become the least popular destination out of Europe. Chief marketer, Steve Born, realized the reason for the decline was that once people visited the popular attractions, such as Venice, Florence, Rome, there was no reason to go back. So they decided to switch things up and create undiscovered tours with Globus.
