An ordinary vacation is passive. An extraordinary vacation is called a tour. More precisely, a Globus tour. Because on a Globus tour you do; you make; you create; you experience. On a Globus escorted tour you see all the popular sites, but then you head off the beaten path to truly experience your destination. They take you behind the scenes to spotlight what makes these exciting destinations unique — and to introduce you to its local flavors. Globus has always greeted the most fascinating places across the globe with unmatched intrigue, curiosity and wonder. Along the way over 90 years, they’ve discovered the sights travelers must see, encountered the people they must meet, engaged in the customs to try and indulged in the cuisines to taste. From the world’s heart-pumping cosmopolitan cities to its tiny heartwarming towns, it is their greatest passion to share the joys they’ve uncovered – experiences that go beyond the landmarks and thoroughfares to the lesser known avenues that get travelers up close to local favorites.
Since 1928, Globus has offered escorted tours. Don't just see the world, enjoy it

Traveler Comments & Insights
" Our trip was excellent. The room, with the upgrades, was amazing! We saw many eagles (bald and golden), one bear, many whales, including one breach, seals, one bear, one wolf, moose and caribou, and many smaller animals.. If we travelled during salmon run, we probably would have seen more bear and eagles. The scenery is to die for, the vistas spectacular. The ship was great; service, food, etc were all great. Thanks for everything."
"Hi Marty! When I originally started to research Travel Agents to help with the process, I was overwhelmed (Let's face it, sometimes the internet can be a good thing and sometimes it can be a bad thing). I am so happy that I can across your website. I sure didn't expect the response that I received from our family and friends when I started planning, and you were there every step of the way putting up with my cabin changes, adding new guests at the last moment, and removing guests in some cases, too! You were amazing and I know for a fact that you are responsible for our worry-free and amazing journey. Everyone that joined us on the cruise was extremely impressed at how well the whole thing fell together with little trouble on their parts. Again I can not thank you enough, and don't forget that we will be planning another one !"

If you're new to travel, you may be unclear on some terms. Travelers looking for an in-depth experience exploring the wonders of the USA and/or Canada go on tours. To help you understand this rewarding style of travel, we've broken down the components of a tour and how people just like you are the VIPs.
SIMPLY PUT, A TOUR IS A PERFECTLY PLANNED VACATION PACKAGE.
There’s nothing easy about planning a vacation - the research, the planning, the reservations, and the logistics. Do it yourself and you have one major project on your hands. A tour handles all the hassles, while all you have to do is have fun.
THERE’S NO DRIVING, NO NAVIGATING.
Just the thought of taxis, rental cars, train depots, and subway stations makes most travelers teary. A tour eliminates all logistic hassles by arranging your transportation around town, between cities, and highways and byways. You can look forward to high-speed trains, scenic railways, ferries, day cruises, and more. Aboard luxury motorcoaches, you’ll even have access to free Wi-Fi.
A TOUR DELIVERS BOTH DAYDREAMS AND RESTFUL NIGHTS.
If you’ve ever searched online for a hotel, then you know the countless results can be overwhelming. How do you begin to choose? A tour includes pre-screened, brand-name hotels with the right address and the right amenities. As an example, Globus hotels are always first-class and above.
TOURS SKIP THE LINES.
During peak travel times, independent travelers can find themselves waiting in line at the main attractions for up to six hours - not a good use of valuable vacation time. A tour offers a pre-planned, pre-purchased itinerary with VIP access to the must-see sights. Travelers skip the long lines and walk straight in.
ON YOUR OWN, YOU SEE.... ON A TOUR, YOU DO.
Seeing the major sights at a destination in the USA & Canada is only part of the equation. Doing what the locals do is what journal entries are made of.
THERE IS A ROCK STAR ON YOUR TOUR.
Only escorted tours include a Tour Director - an expert who lives and breathes your destination and shares their knowledge with you. Anyone can notice interesting landscapes or architecture. But a seasoned Tour Director brings those sights to life with the fascinating stories behind them. AND THEN THERE ARE YOUR FELLOW TRAVEL COMPANIONS.
Experiencing a dream destination is blissful. Experiencing it with like-minded travel companions who share your interests and passions is joyful. Who will be just as excited by the sights, the landscapes, the culture, and the cuisine? Your compatible travel companions on a tour of the USA and/or Canada.
MEALS ARE PART OF THE DEAL.
Tours typically include many meals to minimize costs and maximize time. Think breakfast at your hotel before a day of sightseeing or perhaps dinner before the theatre so you don’t miss the first act. You’ll find in the day-by-day itinerary where your meals are included.
TOURS SAVE YOUR TWO FAVORITE THINGS: MONEY AND TIME.
Tour operators have the buying power that individual travelers simply don’t have, saving you up to 30% compared to purchasing all the components on your own. And by eliminating lines - and including the must-see sights and the must-get photo ops - you’ll actually have more free time to relax and explore on your own.
READY TO HIT THE ROAD?
There’s no easier, breezier way to see the world than on a tour of the USA and/or Canada. In fact, your only challenge is narrowing down a destination from our exciting selection of worldwide itineraries. We’ve done the planning. You just do the packing.
Want help finding a vacation? Call us FREE Planning Help! 800.365.1445
If you are planning to extend your land tour, before departure or after the tour ends, consider one or more sightseeing tours to take during your one-to-three day extension stay. Or if you want to travel independently and on your own, these sightseeing tours are an excellent way to see the USA.
