    We have just finished our second tour with Globus. This time we did the Italian Treasures 11 days tour - although it is really 10 days as all there is on the first day is the Welcome Dinner. Once again Globus were wonderful. Our tour director - Fabi - and driver Luciano - were simply wonderful. Fabi was super friendly and always had things under control. Sometimes I wondered how she did it with 42 guests on the bus but she did it in such an efficient and pleasant way. Luciano was a very safe and friendly driver and he made us feel safe at all times = even on the steep, windy roads we encountered. Both the welcome dinner and the farewell dinner were superb. I congratulate Globus on their choice of restaurants because the food and entertainment were both superb. The hotels chosen were all in good locations (except the last) and were ones expected to be good but in some places several of us experienced real problems with the airconditioning or the plumbing but these are faults of the hotel - not Globus. Only two of the hotels provide tea/coffee making facilities in the room but apparently this is common in Italy. The tour itself was very much on the go and there was much more walking than we expected. A lot of attractions require walking up lots of steep stairs, streets or hills so if you have any serious mobility issues it will be a problem and I would suggest a tour that is more leisurely and not so physically demanding would be better for you. We will definitely travel with Globus again and based on our two experiences have no hesitation in recommending them to other fellow travellers. The only problem we experienced was that we booked one night post tour accommodation with the tour in Rome only to find out that because most of the guests were departing immediately after the end of the tour, Globus choose a hotel closer to the airport. With no restaurants, shops or attractions near to the final hotel and no onsite facilities such as a swimming pool or gym to fill in the time, we will not be caught out again but make our own arrangements for any extra nights accommodation to ensure we are in a more central hotel. Otherwise, thanks Globus for another enjoyable trip with a superb tour director and a superb driver.

    Fantastic ! Wow ! I had such a fun time with Globus. Every activity, every accommodation, every dinner, every guide, every transportation, was great. I would certainly recommend Globus, and I will travel with Globus again. A truly professional organisation.

    My review is two part: A) tourradar - Tourradar were responsive enough with my email and chat responses via the web, and they were very helpful in suggesting the correct tour from Globus when it came to Age, length, and descriptions, etc. BUT, I didn't receive any of the information packages the other members of my tour (Italian Treasures) received when they booked direct, or through a travel agent. Subsequently I was provided incorrect information regarding starting hotel name & location, airport transfer to said hotel, costs of any extra excursions, or other items such as maps, luggage tags, etc. So while tourradar had a decent response time to my requests, I wouldn't have had to chase up answers to some basic questions if I had the same information the rest of the group had. B) Globus - Our tour director Vicky, was great, she made arrangements, checked and double checked in on people and with our local guides at various locations we stopped at, and was even able To assist in locating some forgot articles of clothing at a visited hotel, arranging it to be shipped ahead for me in order to meet me at our final tour stop. Top marks for Vicky & our bus driver Giovanni for making the trip a positive experience. The hotel stays were decent, except for maybe the last stop, the Holiday Inn Aurelia. It's located about midway between Rome and the Airport, with little or nothing to do in the immediate area. The A/C barely worked in the rooms, and the beds were extremely soft, with mattresses long overdue for replacement (this is rated 4 star ... I don't think so). and the rooms were on the small side. The tour was my 1st bus tour and initial exposure to many of Italy's landmark cities and sites was amazing. Time spent in many places almost always felt too short, but given the number of tour days, I believe it was enough to wet your appetite for some areas of Italy & get you to come back and spend more time in a lovely country that it is ... full of culture, history, architecture, and great food! I enjoyed the trip and would likely do something like it again. I have no problem recommending the tour, and Vicky to anyone interested.
