Whether you’re planning a family reunion, girlfriend getaway, or just happen to have a bunch of friends and relations itching to hit the road, we love group travel. It’s a way of reconnecting with the people close to you while you simultaneously connect with a new environment and culture, new tastes and sights. Sure, seeing St. Peter’s basilica for the first time is a thrill whenever you manage to get there. But seeing it through grandpa’s eyes? Or watching two of your best friends stagger up the dizzying steps to the dome’s top? Those are connections you’ll never forget.
We especially love the tour packages for groups of eight or more offered by Globus Journeys. It’s an amazing way to enjoy guided tours, great accommodations, and the insider access that Globus’s expert-planned itineraries are known for.
If you’re ready to jump on the potential savings of the historically low euro, Globus’s itineraries include group tours to Italy, Ireland, Spain, England, France, Portugal, and include multi-country packages in Europe. Globus also has group tours to China, Japan, Costa Rica, and Africa.
Globus has a well-earned reputation for assembling itineraries planned by local experts, which means you’re in good hands when it comes to what to see, when to see it, where to eat, and more. When you know you’re getting a good deal (package tours typically deliver big savings over an a la carte booking approach) and all your logistics are worked out in advance, you can get down to the important business of connecting and reconnecting that group travel is all about.
