The Globus family of brands has released its latest brochure featuring 156 pages of diverse experiences and discoveries throughout Latin America.
In all there are 41 options ranging from four to 20 days and encompassing Mexico, Central America and South America. Escorted and independent tours, as well as cruises, are included.
The programs, available year-round, are operated by Globus, known for its quality escorted tours; Cosmos, its value-brand sister with a name for building in lots of free time in its escorted tours; Monograms, which features packaged holidays for the independent traveller; and Avalon Waterways cruises to the Amazon and to the Galapagos Islands.
There is one Globus tour to Mexico – the popular Wonders of Mexico’s Yucatan – and, in Central America, escorted tours to Costa Rica offered by both Globus and Cosmos. Monograms’ independent tours to Central America are offered to Costa Rica, Guatemala and Panama. And within South America travellers can tour several countries on one comprehensive Globus, Cosmos or Monograms tour; or concentrate on just one such as with Globus’ Peru Splendors or Monograms’ Brazil Highlights.
City lovers will enjoy Monograms’ three independent Getaway tours to Rio, Buenos Aires or Santiago. Each four-day package includes hotel with breakfast, a half-day sightseeing tour and the services of a Monograms Local Host to assist with sightseeing, shopping and dining suggestions – and to iron out any wrinkles which may occur. Those that book air through Monograms on any of its itineraries will also receive free private transfers between the airport and hotel.
New to Cosmos is a 14-day Norwegian Cruise Line sailing from Buenos Aires, Argentina to Santiago, Chile, and including a stop in the Falkland Islands. Including pre- and post-stays in Buenos Aires and Santiago and with an optional extension to the Easter Islands, this trip ranges from 19 to 23 days.
Avalon features Amazon cruises onboard the five-star Delfin III where expert naturalists enhance the daily encounters. The three-day cruises are combined with visits to Lima, Machu Picchu and Cusco. In the Galapagos, Avalon has chartered the 16-passenger yacht the Treasure of Galapagos, which was completely refurbished in 2017.
