Why Travel with Cosmos

Transportation

Spectacular train rides, breathtaking cable car ascents, overnight cruise ships, scenic day ferries, private first-class motorcoaches (most with free Wi-Fi) - Cosmos offers a wonderful variety of transportation for a memorable travel experience. And you never have to worry about getting to the ferry on time, buying tickets for the train, or waiting in long lines to take the cable car.


Sightseeing

Our tour packages include guided sightseeing and scenic highlights that reveal the best of Europe, the U.S., Canada, Asia, Australia, and South America. Bask in the beauty of Italy, America’s National Parks, the Canadian Rockies, the mysteries of the Inca Empire in Peru, and so much more. Enjoy inside visits of the must-see sites with knowledgeable Local Guides who bring each destination to life.


Personalization

We build free time into every Cosmos vacation, so you can eat, shop, and explore the way you want. Whether you’re into art, music, food, wine, or history, we give you the freedom to truly personalize your trip with optional excursions that are meaningful to you. Best of all, you can make your selections, and even prepay for most of them, in advance online. 


Meals

When it comes to meals, Cosmos strikes a perfect balance. We include some meals to save you time and money, yet we also leave enough free time so you can sample your destination’s gastronomic delights on your own.


Accommodations

Where You Stay Makes All the Difference.  After a day of traveling you want to relax at a comfortable, clean, and attractive hotel. We prescreen and select hotels with the best guestrooms (always with a private bathroom), service, and quality for the value. 


Guidance

At the heart of every great Cosmos tour are the friendly, knowledgeable folks who share their local destinations with you and help you maximize your free time with insights and recommendations. We go to serious lengths to find the most professional Tour Directors and Local Guides who deliver commentary in English, but are multilingual so they can navigate Europe with ease and give you the richest experience possible. For all guided visits and included sightseeing in Europe, Cosmos provides personal audio headsets so you never miss a fascinating fact!


Discover the Undiscovered

With our history of introducing travelers to the world’s most beloved destinations, we’ve learned a thing or two about the undiscovered spots that tell the true story behind the country. Follow us to the 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 and the whitewashed villages nestled against the sandy shores of the Mediterranean that only the locals know, we share our favorite, less-traveled treasures with you. 


Cosmos Lite

A whole new category of touring, Cosmos Lite presents the world’s first à la carte tour style. Combining the essential features of our award-winning Cosmos tours with an personalized approach to daily itineraries, Cosmos Lite offers hassle-free travel with the freedom to tailor your itinerary to your own interests, pace and budget.


Cosmos Lite vacation packages include city-to-city transportation, comfortable hotels, and daily breakfast to power your pursuits. What your days include, however, is completely up to you. With a range of MyCosmos excursions, you have the option to purchase only the tours and activities that strike your fancy. Need guidance on what to do? An expert Tour Director will accompany you as you travel between cities to offer suggestions for sightseeing, dining and entertainment. Or wander and wonder at your own pace, with the CosmosGo App, filled with a host of entertainment, sightseeing, dining and shopping suggestions at your fingertips. 


So, go ahead. Rise early or sleep in. Set out solo or join a group outing. With your logistics taken care of and no set itinerary, you can joyfully experience the captivating landscapes and cityscapes of Europe – on your terms and timeline. No other vacation package offers a bigger bundle of freedom, flexibility, affordability and fun!
