    The tour felt more like a school field trip. I LOVE history but the long hours on the bus listening to someone ramble on and on wasn’t any fun. Speaking of fun, there was no fun on the tour. We had fun when we were able to venture on our own but the tour... Read more

    The trip was top notch in every way. With the Globus folks dealing with all the details, it was the best trip we have ever experienced. The itinerary was fun and educational. We would recommend this trip or any other Glubus tour. We loved it.

      It's not the first time I've used this site for 3 very good reasons. It's easier to navigate than most of the individual companies websites, it's a one stop shop (all the tours from the different companies are in one place) and to top it off its often cheaper than going direct
