This trip has exceeded my expectations.

Every aspect of the trip was very smooth. Director provided excellent information on what was upcoming. Local guides were great in sharing personal stories tied in to what was being seen.

Amazing trip, and tour guide. Would recommend to others

This was our first time on a Globus Escapes tour. What an amazing value. We look forward to doing another one in the future.

The trip meet my our expectations and value but would have liked to toured the inside of the Matthias Coronation Church and Jewish synagogue in Budapest as an example. Unfortunately, the rainy weather made exterior tours a little less desirable. The tour was fast paced and included a number of sites at each city which was what we expected. Dinners at local restaurants were a treat where we sampled the local food and culture. Finally, the tour director seemed unaware that we had prepaid the gratuities for the tour director and driver. It would have been nice if the tour director had known that we had already prepaid the gratuities and could therefore acknowledge it. Recommend that the Globus and the tour director be aware the difference between Vegan and Vegetarian diets as we observed some Vegan guests refuse their dinners that were served during trip.

we already did book alaska and will book more

The Imperial Escape tour was fantastic and a good buy. The hotels were nice, perfectly situated and the included breakfast was bountiful. Our tour guide, Helena, was personable and knowledgeable.

The trip was nice overall. The only real complaint is about the accomodations in Vienna. It was absolutely cruel to have such crummy accomodations ( Inter City Hotel) in such a gorgeous city. The Hotel was small and stuffy and the staff was rude and un interested. The Hotelwas very sub par and could not accomodate a small request of an additional towel or pillow !!!! It was ridiculous. The breakfast was also sub par and the very dissappointing. Other than that the trip was good. The Dinner cruise in Buda Pest could have some better menu items to accomodate all palates. We enjoyed the Tour guide, and she was very informed and capable. Best, Tanaz

I have booked several tours with Globus or Cosmos but my first with Globus Escape. Because the price was so reasonable, I had lowered my expectations. There was no reason to. It was very similar to a Globus tour. I would highly recommend it.
