The itinerary was brisk - you see a lot but you have to get up and out early. I would never have seen so much if left to my own devices.

    This was my first trip overseas & traveling alone & I would do it again in a heartbeat. My experience with Globus through the tour director, Peter Dundon, and the bus driver, Ein, will have me traveling again using Globus. From the time we entered the bus each day and exited each night he kept us informed on every city, Castle, ruins, myths, legends, history and more. He had a vast knowledge to share with us and also read poetry and sang local songs. Our bus driver was also very helpful as well as excellent behind the wheel through LOTS of narrow streets. Well done Globus.

    The was the first tour that we had gone on with Globus, had done a River Cruise with Avalon and was very pleased with that section of Globus. Ireland had been on our bucket list and we are so glad that we had included Scotland, England, Wales. We will be looking into other tours with Globus and will be recommending to our friends. Peter our tour guide, Ian our Bus Driver certainly paid a big part in making this dream trip a success.

The itinerary was brisk - you see a lot but you have to get up and out early. I would never have seen so much if left to my own devices. A word to all the other menopausal ladies out there - they give you a down comforter in every hotel, year-round. Other than that, a truly wonderful experience.

    Group of five Canadian women took this tour and were very pleased with every aspect of Globus. The tour director (Julie Ann) was superb, hotels were amazing, food was delicious, side tours were wonderful, each stop en route was worth it. Would not hesitate to take a Globus tour again.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • April 23, 2018

      Do you arrange airport transfers?

      Once you have a confirmed booking we can request a transfer for you with Globus for an additional cost. The transfer will pick you up from the airport to the hotel and back to the airport at the end of the tour.

    • January 1, 2017

      Is this mostly a tour via bus or do folks actually get to spend time at the different locations?

      It varies depending on where you are, and also, to a degree, this is up to the tour director and driver. I am sure you can appreciate, that these are professionals, who know the itinerary better than anyone and will decide these things based on what is best for the group on the particular day you are in each destination. However, to give you a better idea, any destination on a transit day is likely to be a stop of 1-3 hours. There are also days where you are in a city for a full day, like the day you are in Edinburgh.

      Booking was really easy! The options were displayed clearly and I was able to filter. I especially liked that they recommended a travel insurer because I've never had to get travel insurance. No hassle experience and now I'm ready for my tour!
