The Globus tour guide was excellent.
We were very pleased with Affordable Tours and with Globus.
We really appreciated all of the suggestions included in our travel folder and recommendations for traveling to Italy. The only thing missing was information about the local guides in each city. A suggestion, please include an envelope for each tour guide as well a tour director and bus driver. At least give a recommended amount to tip each local guide. Thank you so much. We LOVED this trip!
We had a wonderful trip. Globus was amazing. The entire trip from our flight to and from ran very smoothly. I can honestly say I do not have one comlaint....only positives. Thank you!
Our Tour Director was excellent. Hope we will have another one like him the next time we have our trip. We enjoyed very much and was a very pleasant and memorable experience to all of us. Thank you Globus and Affortable Tours....
We only had one problem - getting to the Hotel in Rome. We did not see any offer for transfer on arrival by air in Rome. Fortunately, a tour guide with another travel company that we met on our flight into Rome, was able to set up the transfer for us!
It was a great vacation and would recommend both Globus Affordable Tours without any reservations.
It's simple: You refer your friends, family, and anyone to us and when they book you will receive an American Express gift card worth up to $200 in the mail for simply referring.Read More
