Seeing the major sights at a destination is only part of the equation. Doing what the locals do is what journal entries are made of. Partake in a tango lesson in Argentina. Try your hand at ancient calligraphy in Japan. Bake your own scones in Ireland. We call these Local FavoritesSM, and they’re what Globus tours are made of.

Discover the Undiscovered
Follow us to off-the-beaten-path locations with the charm, tradition, and cultural beauty that can only be found in the authentic towns and landscapes of Europe. From undiscovered hamlets of Great Britain to the vineyards and hills of Italy, we share with you our favourite, less-travelled treasures with you. 

You may fancy seeing the big sites in Europe, but don’t think us cheeky in saying we can show you the undiscovered places that tell the true stories of its glistening coast lines, ancient castles and rolling green hills. Visit off-the-beaten-path locations and discover cultural charm and authentic tradition, that can only be found in the less-travelled towns and landscapes of Europe when you travel with Undiscovered by Globus.

from Scott Nisbet, President & CEO of GFOB USA

GFOB has an unwavering commitment to the safety of our guests. The COVID crisis has heightened the importance of this for travelers. While travelers clearly want to start exploring again, they also need to feel safe. Over the last few weeks much has been done to develop and communicate our new COVID health and safety protocols.

There is more in the works, but the following highlights our current plans.

Health screening for guests and our team pre-travel and throughout the trip, including touch-free temperature checks.

Ensuring hotel, restaurant, coach and attraction partners meet government guidelines.

Avalon ships circulate air from the outside into staterooms and do not circulate air between staterooms.

A commitment to clean beyond government guidelines.

Social distancing throughout the journey.
– Fewer guests on coaches and ships (details to come)
– Wireless listening technology to avoid crowding around guides
– Masks available for guests and required for our team when social distancing is not possible
– Additional dining venues on ships

Daily deep cleaning of coaches and staterooms
– Hand sanitation stations on coaches and ships
– Hotel and ship buffets replaced with served meals
– Electrostatic spraying systems on ships
– UV disinfection systems on ships
– Hourly cleaning of public areas on ships
– Disinfecting luggage and all goods brought on board ships
– Complete disinfection of staterooms and public area between cruises 

 

We have recently been asked about the future of group touring in a COVID world. I believe we should be more confident than ever. Travel will be more difficult during this time, but we can make it easier. This is the #1 reason people take a tour…”it’s easy.” For 92 years, GFOB has been maneuvering around the hassles and providing benefits like skipping the lines at popular attractions to make travel easy (and now safe). We also know the hotels and venues with the right safety protocols. Plus with GFOB, travelers are not left to figure out all the local COVID guidelines and laws. There is also safety and peace of mind being with the same group of health screened, people. Compared that to a “hop on, hop off” tour for example. And, of course, all our brands and trips have a GFOB person there ready to help.  I believe touring and river cruising with GFOB makes more sense than ever.

Curated Travel Articles

After 90 years curating travel wonderment, Globus have the experience and local knowledge to craft immersive adventures that make you feel alive.

Freedom

Many travel operators tend to overschedule, instilling the need for a vacation after your vacation. We weave in just the right amount of free time for individual exploration, quiet reflection, or a book and a latte at a sidewalk café.

VIP

We don’t just travel, we travel right. We work hard behind the scenes to get you front and center at the world’s greatest sights. We minimize lines, minimize wait times, and maximize fun.

More Inclusions

Everyone loves extras – until they’re charged extra. So we include more visits, toss in more experiences, and include more sightseeing, all in the price of the vacation. So the only surprises you’ll encounter are the ones we have thoughtfully planned for you.

No 1 Experts

Our experts bring our destinations to life with firsthand, in-depth knowledge of their cities, towns, and neighborhoods. They speak the language. They know the history. They know where to find the legendary pastries.

Hotels

A hotel can have the crispest sheets, the fluffiest towels, and the tastiest pillow mints, but if it’s not near the sights, what good is it? Not much. Because what you love just as much as the sights is waking up right next to them.

Perfectly Planned

When we envision the perfect vacation, we see great hotels, amazing food, incredible sightseeing, and above all, we imagine creating memories galore! What we don’t picture is what it takes to organise a jaw-dropping, stress-free getaway.
