We have used Globus before, and have been pleased with our previous experience. We chose Cosmos for their itinerary and the dates, and were aware Cosmos is Globus Family's budget version. Having used Globus in the past, we expected Globus' own Tour Bus and Tour Guide--but our itinerary was contracted out to an Asia Travel Consultant. This is not a criticism, just our observation.
I had an amazing tour. Our tour director James was awesome! I was very sad when the tour ended and it was time to go home.
