Globus 2013 Europe Tour Packages

September 26, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Modern touring offers travelers the chance to enjoy every moment of their vacation. Without the hassles of transportation and navigating each destination, not to mention, waiting in countless lines, tour travelers have more time to actually enjoy their European getaway. And, in 2013, Globus is not only increasing travelers' chances to enjoy Europe with new itineraries and an increased list of "exotic Europe" destinations, the company is adding to the benefits of touring Europe by introducing travelers to Local Favorites.

"With Globus, 'sight-experiencing' beats 'sightseeing' every time," said Scott Nisbet, president and CEO of the Globus family of brands. "This idea couldn't be more true in 2013 when we introduce our travelers to Local Favorites a rare taste of the local flavors and behind-the-scenes journeys on each and every Europe tour."

When travelers tour with Globus in 2013, they can treasure magical, Local Favorites moments like this:

  • Staying in a French chateau (Normandy, Brittany & Chateau Country)
  • Taking a horse-drawn carriage ride through the Alpine splendor (Enchanting Europe)
  • Practice your skills by hitting a few balls at St. Andrews Golf Centre (Bonnie Scotland)
  • Baking scones in a farmhouse after letting a local farmer provide a glimpse of local farm life (NEW! From the Shannon to the Thames)
  • Visiting the Oskar Schindler Factory, made famous in "Schindler's List" (NEW! Poland, East Germany & World War II)
  • Watching belly dancing during a dinner in Istanbul (NEW! From Vienna to Istanbul)
  • Enjoying an exclusive farewell dinner with local specialties and wine at a Sicilian farmhouse (Highlights of Sicily & Southern Italy)

  • "The enrichment and enjoyment Globus affords travelers is one of our most valuable and powerful assets," said Nisbet. "Time and cost-savings are also valuable benefits of Globus tours. And next year, we're introducing travelers to even more of Eastern and Northern Europe, providing them vacation options that cost about 20 percent less than traveling to destinations in Western Europe."

    With 11 NEW tours ranging from seven to 18 days, in 2013, Globus is giving travelers the chance to experience more of such "exotic" European destinations as the Arctic Circle, Iceland, the Ukraine, Russia, Warsaw, Poland and Istanbul.
