Globus Escorted Tours - Globus
The Perfectly Planned Vacation
In 1928, a young Antonio Mantegazza purchased a rowboat to transport visitors across Lake Lugano, Switzerland. Who would have thought that this single rowboat would launch one of the world's leading travel companies?
Today, the Globus family of brands is a global company reaching every corner of the world, yet remains family-owned and steeped in the values Antonio had when he set out across Lake Lugano—to enlighten travelers by showing them the very best of the destinations we know so well.
Globus has 189 vacations in 67 countries and is frequently awarded the designation of “Best Tour Operator” by different magazines and readers. Destinations include Europe, North America including South & Central America, Africa, South Pacific, Asia and the Middle East.
