The international GLOBUS group began as a small family company, led by the father of current President, Sergio Mantegazza, in 1928. The company originally offered scenic motorcoach rides around Lake Lugano, in the southern part of Switzerland. Following the success of this operation, Mantegazza quickly expanded the business by purchasing a fleet of motorcoaches, and soon pioneered the concept of escorted 'first class' touring around Europe. Globus continued to introduce successful touring packages to new markets in Australia, New Zealand, and Canada and in 1981 Globus launched its 'first class' packages of the United States and Canada. The combination of popular and innovative destinations, flawless service, and integrity, have earned Globus an enviable record in the travel industry. Customer loyalty is such that seven out of ten Globus customers have travelled with Globus before or have been recommended by past travellers - a notable achievement in a highly competitive industry.

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.
