Tour Itinerary

Ninety-nine bottles of beer on the wall, centuries of fascinating history, and more sausage stands than you can count await on this delicious introductory tour of Germany. As you follow the delectable scent of sizzling bratwurst and freshly baked pretzels from bustling Berlin to Bavarian Munich, your eyes will be as pleased as your taste buds. The elegantly restored city of Dresden, the charming medieval town of Rothenburg, the Passion Play pilgrimage town of Oberammergau, and the fairytale Neuschwanstein Castle present picture-perfect backdrops for your memory books. While Munich’s theatrical Glockenspiel clock may announce the time three times a day, the lively Biergarten throughout Germany will happily tell you it’s always “beer thirty.”

Globus will conduct tour check-in procedures and pre-trip health screenings to offer guests a safe start and peace of mind throughout the journey. This includes proof of vaccination for all guests.


There may be times on tour or on the motorcoach when social distancing is required. We will take care in assuring any local guidelines are followed in a safe and comfortable way for our guests.

To ensure a healthy environment for each of our guests and our team, our Tour Directors, Local Hosts, and motorcoach drivers are fully vaccinated, and Globus is also requiring that all travelers are fully vaccinated before joining the trips. Additionally, regular guest checks are conducted, and, when required by local guidelines, masks will be worn by our guests and by our team when accompanying guests.

Globus will also ensure hand sanitizing is available throughout each trip, on coach and in hotels.


As a part of Globus' commitment to clean, Globus is requiring enhanced cleaning procedures with hotel partners, on motorcoaches, vehicles and throughout every trip, including additional daily disinfecting procedures that go above-and-beyond already strict health and safety procedures.

Over all my travel experience on this trip was very good. I love where the hotels we stayed were right in the city center. Travel director and driver were both very helpful and nice.Will like to travel with Golbus the next time.

Good overview of this part of Germany. The teen-age grandsons got a first hand look at some important places without being overburdened with information that can be found easily online. Although English is everywhere, the German student was able to practice his language skills in ordering, using ticket machines, purchasing, and reading signs.

There were a couple of hotels that were not as nice as others and one required walking up steps but overall they were all very good.

Everything was great. Just what I expected.

 The trip exceeded my expectations, the tour director was patient and knowledgable, and the hotels were all 4 star and the preparation and execution was flawless. Plus the food....

This trip was amazing. We did not expect rooms as nice as those we had, nor did we expect the many kindnesses such as delivering our luggage to our rooms, solving problems with ATMs and lost items, excellent quality meals. We are exhausted as it was a fast paced tour of an entire country - but there are no words to describe how much we enjoyed this trip. It was so much more than a vacation - in many ways it was life changing in all we learned and were able to experience. We made some wonderful friends from our group, and our tour guides were like personal historians of the areas we visited. The added advantages of being first in line to the sites we visited, having tickets pre-paid and waiting, having all boats, trains and other travel set up and smoothly executed, and never having to worry about our luggage was invaluable. For the scheduling and arrangements alone we could never have seen on our own all that we saw in this tour. And the price we paid to see it all was actually very minimal when compared to all of the work and headaches that we saved ourselves had we planned this on our own. We were already planning our next trip on the flight home!! Thank you so very much for an adventure we will take with us the rest of our lives! 

OUr tour director was supberb continually checking to see if we needed anything and offering alternatives when needed. Our bus driver should be inducted in the drivers hall of fame. He must have nerves of steel. The best driver I have every come across. We had the best time. Everything was perfectly organized and the pace allowed us to see the sites while providing us leisure time for siteseeing. We will def. be recommending this tour/company to others.

My Family and myself had a fantastic time in Italy. It was a dream trip come true.

The tour "The Best of Italy" met or exceed our expectations. 

This was one of the most memorable tours we have taken. Globus did an outstanding job. We are very pleased.

I explored many Italy travel options before choosing this tour. I could not have been more pleased. Globus exceeded my expectations. I would travel with them again without hesitation.

truly wonderful trip. Much appreciated!!!!!

The trip was great!! Everything I expected and more. Thanks a Million.

My 11-day Best of Italy tour was FANTASTIC!!! Not only did I stay at great hotels, but I got to see and experience the splendor of Italy in just a few days. The tour was well organized despite being with 41 (fun but interesting) tourists! The tour director was not only professional but courteous, attentive to everyone's needs, energetic, knowledable and a pleasure to be around. (We often would call her Fabulous, which was well deserved...) Our driver was always safe, prompt and maintained a well-kept bus. (He's one of the best-dressed drivers I know!!) My only regret was not being prepared for allergy season and having a severe attack. But my fellow tour group were well prepared and were more than generous with sharing their antihistemines and eye drops (thanks gang!) I highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to experience the history, art, culture, food and landscape that Italy has to offer. Ciao!

The room was suppose to have twin beds but had a double bed. I think that I received a single room instead of a double room. The shower was also small.


This was my first guided tour. I typcially toured independently in the past. However, my experience was positive and I will consider a guided tour in the future.

It was a great experience overall, both with Affordable Tours and with the Tour Operator. We had a great and unforgettable time.
