Dear Vacations To Go Customer,
From the romantic cities of Italy to the Outback of Australia, the
escorted tours of Globus
promise unforgettable experiences around
the world. Globus trips provide an extraordinary value and are filled with
unique insights and encounters that you might miss if you planned the
getaway on your own.
Whatever destination is on your must-visit list for 2016, Globus is
offering Vacations To Go customers a fantastic early booking
off 2016 tours in Europe, North America and South America when you

A Globus vacation includes VIP access to top sights, with no waiting in
line. Guests are accompanied by expert Globus Tour Directors and Local
Guides who bring each destination to life with in-depth knowledge of their
cities, towns and neighborhoods.
Itineraries also include the company's signature Local Favorites, which
spotlight what makes a destination special and ensure you experience
your destination like a local.
