TORONTO — Globus family of brands is shining the spotlight on Asia in 2018, with several new itineraries to some of the region’s hottest destinations.
Escorted tour company Globus will debut new tours to China as well as journeys through Vietnam, Cambodia, Japan and India. Its sister escorted tour company, value-brand Cosmos, also offers Asia vacations, introducing Canadians to the Great Wall and more with China, Vietnam and Thailand tours as well as new itineraries in Japan and Sri Lanka. In all, there will be 46 escorted tours available from Globus and Cosmos in 2018.
“The opportunities are so endless, so colourful and diverse,” says Stéphanie Bishop of the Globus family of brands’ Canadian office. “From the unforgettable temples of southeast Asia to gracious dining in Japan, the thrill of seeing the Great Wall of China or the crazy bustle of India, we can do it all for you – and in the style you wish.” And, she added, “All tours are priced in Canadian dollars.”
Globus’ 2018 vacations are priced from $3,685 (plus international airfare) for the 11-day ‘Treasures of China’; ‘Cosmos vacations start at $1,869 (plus international airfare) for the 13-day ‘Thailand Experience’. New vacations for 2018 include Globus’ 12-day ‘Classic China & the Yangtze River’ and Cosmos’ 10-day ‘Timeless Japan’ as well as the 11-day ‘Grand Tour of Sri Lanka’.
“Best of all, we combine 90 years of vacation planning experience, worldwide buying power and dozens of caring staff based around the world to create picture-perfect holidays,” adds Bishop.
Making the touring experience even more special for travellers, most of Globus’ Asia vacations are part of the company’s Small Group Discovery (SG) series, a program that allows for no more than 20 travellers on a tour.
For those interested in independent travel, Globus’ sister brand, Monograms also provides dozens of packaged itineraries, including getaways to Tokyo, Bangkok, Singapore and Dubai as well as regional experiences in South Korea, Japan, and Vietnam. Each includes airport meet-and-greet service, a choice of handpicked hotels, a combination of sightseeing plus free time, ground transportation between cities and the services of a Local Host.
In addition, Avalon Waterways invites Canadians to experience the destinations found along Southeast Asia’s Mekong and Irrawaddy rivers. It will be introducing a new Suite Ship in 2018 – the Avalon Saigon – on two new Mekong itineraries: the 18-day ‘The Heart of Cambodia & Vietnam’ and the 21-day ‘Ultimate Southeast Asia & the Majestic Mekong’.
