Learn More About Globus Tours

Globus is a travel company that specializes in providing escorted tours, river cruises, and independent travel packages to destinations worldwide. The company's long and fascinating history dates back to 1928 when Antonio Mantegazza started transporting commercial goods across Lake Lugano in a rowboat. Over time, Mantegazza acquired motor coaches to transport travelers around southern Switzerland and called his company Globus Viaggi. By the 1950s, Globus was operating overnight trips to popular destinations like Rome, Venice, and the French Riviera. The company's innovative circular tours helped make motorcoach travel more convenient, and it soon expanded to include trips to Italy, Holland, Belgium, Scandinavia, and England. Globus' Grand European Touring option, offering first-class tours to Europe, allowed the company to enter the travel market in the U.S. in the 1950s. Today, Globus Tours offers vacation packages on six continents and hundreds of itineraries. The company takes extra care in selecting hotels and guides, ensuring a top-notch experience for all travelers. With Globus, you can explore the world in various ways – near and far, off-the- beaten-path, into the iconic, or out on your own.
