It began more than 90 years ago, when a young man purchased a boat to transport visitors across Lake Lugano, Switzerland. Who would have thought that this single boat 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 Mantegazza had when he set out across Lake Lugano in 1928 - to enlighten travelers by showing them the very best of the destinations we know so well. At Globus, we create first-class escorted tours with just the right balance of included features & free time. We’re all about hidden gems, not hidden charges. We throw in more visits, toss in more experiences & include more sightseeing, all in the price of the vacation.

The Globus Story and History

With over 85 years experience, the Globus family of brands reaches every corner of the world, yet remains family-owned and dedicated. Founded by Antonio Mantegazza in Switzerland in 1928, Globus has grown from a small, single enterprise into a constantly expanding, full-fledged travel business. Antonio was captivated by travel, and wanted to show travellers the beauty of his hometown of Lake Lugano. He purchased a small rowboat and transported visitors across lake, telling them stories and about the local sights along the way. This was the beginning of the Globus brand as we know it today.

The success of Globus can be attributed to innovation, hard work, passion and love for travel, which have remained the core ideals of the company from the beginning. Today the Globus family of brands consists of over 32 offices worldwide, with more than 5,000 experiences professionals. They carry over 500,000 passengers a year and are the leading operator of guided vacations worldwide.
