Globus family of brands launch small-group Asia & South Pacific tours for 2021

TORONTO — Globus family of brands has launched its 2021 Asia & South Pacific Vacations that are perfect for small groups in search of the exotic.

Featuring an average of just 20 guests per departure, all 2021 Globus and Cosmos Asia vacations are Small-Group Discovery tours that include up-close access to attractions in Japan, China, Vietnam, Cambodia and India. Select departures in the South Pacific are also part of the new program.

“Small Group Discoveries await travellers across the Pacific Ocean,” said Stéphanie Bishop, managing director for the Globus family of brands. “With the Globus family of brands, they can look forward to sipping sake in Takayama or traditional tea in Tokyo; casting a wide net in Vietnam with the local fishermen or cueing up barbeque in the Outback; they can even enjoy taking a rickshaw through Delhi’s famous outdoor bazaar with a small group of like-minded travellers.”

  • 7-day Best of Japan (Monograms)

Earlier this month the Globus family of brands also announced new faith-based vacations for 2021, as well as several Oberammergau itineraries for 2022.

In 2021, Globus and Cosmos will be offering a portfolio of 15 faith-based Small-Group Discovery tours throughout Europe, Israel and Jordan. These itineraries cater to 24 or fewer travellers and “invite travellers to explore their faith on uplifting vacations that include visits to sites of spiritual, cultural and historical significance,” says Bishop.

In 2022, Globus, Cosmos and Avalon Waterways will offer travellers 13 itineraries to witness the Passion Play in Oberammergau, with reserved seating and premier accommodations at the Romantik Hotel. Held in Oberammergau, Germany since 1634, the theatrical tradition is performed only once a decade with 2,000 actors, singers and musicians. This year’s performance, which was originally scheduled for May 16, has been postponed to May 21, 2022 due to the global pandemic.

“Whether travellers choose to enjoy Oberammergau by tour or river cruise, our itineraries – which will sell out quickly – include accommodations in the heart of Oberammergau at the Romantik Hotel and a dedicated office in this historic hamlet to help them make the most of their stay,” adds Bishop.

Other popular faith-based tours that fill up year-over-year include: ‘Journey through the Holy Land’ (Globus); ‘Footsteps of Apostle Paul’ (Globus); ‘Marian Shrines of Europe’ (Globus); ‘The Camino: A Walking Journey for the Soul’ (Cosmos); ‘The European Reformation’ (Cosmos); and ‘Spiritual Highlights of Italy’ (Cosmos).

The Globus family of brands recently extended its suspension of operations, from Aug. 31, 2020 to Oct. 31, 2020.

Globus family of brands’ 2021 Peace of Mind Travel Plan is complimentary and attached to all 2021 vacation bookings, giving clients the flexibility to move vacations to any other 2021 or 2022 date, destination, itinerary or even another brand in its portfolio. No penalties will be incurred as long as the booking is moved before the final payment date. For more information about the Peace of Mind Travel Plan, click here.
