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 promotion:

Save 10% off 2016 tours in Europe, North America and South America when you book by September 15.

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.

Globus vacations in Europe feature attractive prices made possible by a strong U.S. dollar. Among Local Favorites are a wine tasting in France's Burgundy region during the French Sampler itinerary, a dinner of local specialties with flamenco entertainment in the Spanish city of Seville on Iberian Tapestry, and a tour of the royal yacht Britannia while in Edinburgh during Bonnie Scotland.

In North America, celebrate the 100th anniversary of the U.S. National Park Service next year on a tour of the Grand Canyon and other prized preserves, or take in the scenic grandeur of the Canadian Rockies. The Globus family is a proud partner with the National Parks Foundation and gives a donation for every traveler who visits a park on one of their tours. Some Globus departures provide access to popular events such as the Albuquerque Balloon Festival in New Mexico, the Tournament of Roses Parade in Southern California or the Calgary Stampede in the Canadian province of Alberta.

Tours in South America introduce guests to its kaleidoscope of cultures. You can join a specially arranged tango lesson in Buenos Aires, learn about ranch life in the pampas of Argentina, visit a local home in Peru's Sacred Valley or take in an included samba show in Rio de Janeiro.

Globus features behind-the-scenes local experiences and special VIP access in Asia. Next year, the company debuts Classic Japan: The Golden Route. Highlights include a traditional tea ceremony in Tokyo, a cable-car excursion to view Mount Fuji and a ride on a high-speed bullet train to Kyoto, where a cooking class is scheduled.

Groups are kept to a minimum of 20 participants on Globus safaris in Africa. Travelers explore game parks with expert guides, riding in four-wheel-drive vehicles that hold up to six passengers. Accommodations are unique and varied -- stay at tented camps in wildlife preserves in Kenya, a lodge near the thundering cascades of Victoria Falls or a hotel close to the Cape Town waterfront.

Globus will debut three brand-new itineraries in the South Pacific next year: South Pacific Wonders and Australia Adventure (both of which can be extended with a Fiji stay), and Best of New Zealand (to which you can add stays in Sydney and the Cook Islands). Local Favorites in Australia include an excursion to Kangaroo Island and a barbecue in the Outback. In New Zealand, join a family for dinner in their home in Rotorua and tour a winery in Queenstown.

And finally, I want to mention Cosmos, another tour operator that is part of the Globus family of brands. It's known for its budget-priced vacations with more free time built into the schedule.

On a Cosmos trip in Europe, you'll benefit from the expert knowledge of your Tour Director and Local Guide as you visit the Colosseum in Rome or Edinburgh Castle in the Scottish capital -- but there's still leisure time to relax in a cafe at the edge of a piazza or hang out with the locals in a neighborhood pub.

Cosmos has an extensive list of itineraries in North America, including fall foliage trips in New England, cross-country rail journeys in Canada and nostalgic Route 66 road trips between Chicago and L.A.

The company's departures in South America provide a variety of ways to explore the continent, with tours ranging from nine to 30 days. Many include extensions in "bucket list" locales like the Galapagos Islands, Easter Island and the Amazon.
