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.

Globus family of brands safeguards travellers with new pre-trip health & safety measures

Read Press Release

This week,  Globus family of brands – consisting of Globus, Cosmos, Avalon Waterways and Monograms – is announcing important updates to its pre-trip Health & Safety Protocols including proof of COVID-19 vaccines or a negative test result in order to join its tours, river cruises and independent holiday packages abroad.*

“The health and safety of our travellers is our No. 1 priority,” said Gai Tyrrell, Managing Director Australasia of Globus family of brands. “We have continued to enhance on-trip safety standards throughout the pandemic to ensure we’re ready to welcome guests back to travel when the world is ready. Today, we’re unveiling new pre-trip requirements.”

Travellers are now required to offer Globus family of brands’ personnel one of the following printed and/or digital verifications upon arrival:

  • Proof of COVID-19 vaccination at least 14 days prior to travel
  • Proof of a negative COVID-19 test result within 72-hours of travel
  • Proof of recovery from a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis within three months of travel

 

Without one of these verifications, travellers will not be able to join a planned holiday with Globus, Cosmos, Avalon Waterways or Monograms. These requirements are in addition to any government regulations.

In addition to unveiling new COVID-19 parameters required at the start of each holiday departure, the Globus family of brands announced that they will facilitate – and cover – additional COVID-19 testing, if required, for guests to return to their home country, as well as tests on trip if guests show symptoms.

These new protocols will take effect in April, 2021.

And, to ease pre-trip stress, the company is also now offering guests more payment flexibility. The Globus family of brands has shortened the final payment window for all brands to 45 days, prior to departure.

“In a world of uncertainty, we want travellers to enjoy peace of mind that their holiday – and their finances – are in good hands,” said Tyrrell. “As they get closer to their departure date, they can feel confident about – and excited for – their journey, knowing that final payment is not due until six weeks before they’re scheduled to go.”

Tyrrell also cited the company’s Peace of Mind Travel Plan created during the pandemic to garner traveller confidence for new and displaced bookings.

“If our guests are unable to go on their holiday due to COVID-19 restrictions, our complimentary Peace of Mind Travel Plan gives them the flexibility to move their plans to any other 2021 or 2022 date, destination, itinerary or even, another brand in our vast travel portfolio, without penalty,” said Tyrrell. “We’re offering travellers risk-free bookings.”

*Please note, Globus family of brands’ regulations, restrictions and travel requirements differ per country of departure.

IN TOURING WE TRUST

Globus has always greeted the most fascinating places across the globe with unmatched intrigue, curiosity and wonder. Along the way, we’ve discovered the sights to see, encountered the people to meet, engaged in the customs to sample and indulged in the cuisine to taste. And we’ve done this while bundling unrivalled knowledge from Tour Directors and local guides with first-class accommodations and transportation to help you greet the globe on a journey that goes beyond the ordinary. In short, touring offers over-the-moon experiences without overthinking.

When travellers, like you, choose a Globus tour, you say “goodbye” to worry, leaving you free to wander and wonder about the world around you. And that idea – and promise – couldn’t be more prevalent and welcomed today. While today’s world has changed, what remains certain is Globus’ commitment to your safety, comfort and peace-of-mind.

Globus will continue to review and update Assurance initiatives as we make our return to the world, including adhering to – and building upon – the standards set forth by travel and health agencies across the globe, including the European Centre for Disease Prevention (ECDC), the U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) and United States Tour Operators Association (USTOA).

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.
