One day in San Diego is not enough. Original itinerary had two days. On the one day that we were there there was a three hour lunch which meant there was very little time to do things like the famous zoo. The single suppleMent was very high and the trip itself expensive. The tour director was outstanding. The driver was excellent.

This was our 20th Globus tour. We expected a great tour and received one.

This tour with Globus not only matched our expectations, but exceeded our expectations. This was indeed an exciting trip. Globus has many very good tours, and they keep on adding to their roster. To me, Globus is a leading tour company. We have taken many tours with Globus and will continue to do so.
