First bus tour for us and we found it a great way to hit a lot of the highlights with little stress over the travel.

This is our 2nd tour with Globus and the trip went very well. Very nice hotels.
Very happy with our choice of tour operators. The trip was amazing & our tour director was truly exceptional. We have been on a lot of escorted tours so we can readily tell exceptional from good. She was always there to help us, to answer any questions we may have, to attend to the smallest detail, but most importantly she was always available. This includes our coach driver also. He was very involved with us & also tended to our needs. We truly enjoyed them both.
