What if you could walk along the Champs Elysées to the Arc de Triomphe at a leisurely pace without the fighting the crowds? And what if you could see Michelangelo’s David without looking over a sea of heads? And what if you could do all of this from $196 a day?
Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? But it’s not! With Escapes by Globus, you can experience the best itineraries through Europe without the masses and, even better, without the high-season prices. Here’s more reasons (if you’re not already convinced)…
Fewer travellers in the off season means fewer crowds, so you’ll enjoy more space in museums to see the masterpieces, among the ruins to marvel at the ancient structures that once stood, and down the cobblestone streets to discover hidden gems that others may miss.
Shorter lines to see the main attractions gives you more time for longer strolls, longer lunches, and longer moments for people-watching while sipping a frothy cappuccino or a frothy local beer (often these are the best moments of travel!).
High season equals high temperatures. When you travel during Europe’s autumn, winter, or spring, you can experience its hottest sights without working up a sweat, and warmest traditions in the cosiest ways (in front of an open fire with a glass of gluhwein, perhaps?).
The landscapes and streetscapes look different in the cooler months meaning the atmosphere is different, too. Imagine snowflakes falling on Switzerland’s cobbled streets; Tuscany’s rolling vineyards turning warm shades of orange; and Germany’s cosy pubs filled with ruddier cheeks and even more merriment.
With shorter lines and smaller crowds but lower prices, you might expect fewer inclusions? Not with Globus! On an Escapes by Globus tour, you get an easy, hassle-free, all-in-one holiday. Here’s what you can expect:
As a member of an Escapes by Globus tour, you get special VIP access at the must-see sights – you’ll be taken right to the head of the line and through the front door. Anyone who’s queued for the Eiffel Tower or the Sistine Chapel in summer before knows how valuable this is!
With Globus, you travel in the company of genuine local experts – Tour Directors and Local Guides who are actually from the region through which you’re travelling. All along the way, they share their vast knowledge of the areas and can point you in the right direction to help you get the most out of your free time.
Traditional meals help you experience your destination’s culture through its cuisine. Globus tours always include several meals, each featuring at least one complimentary glass of regional beverage for an additional layer of local flavour.
Relax and enjoy private, deluxe touring motorcoaches with free wi-fi, air-conditioning and extra leg room. High-speed trains are standard on tours travelling Paris to London and Edinburgh to London.
