Globus talks about Oberammergau and who to sell it to in new video series

TORONTO — Oberammergau is right around the corner and the Globus family of brands opened sales in June with the largest number of packages by a Canadian tour operator to include a visit to Oberammergau for a performance of the play, which takes place every 10 years in the small southern German town. The next Passion Play is scheduled for 2020 with 102 performances between May and October, and is expected to welcome 400,000 visitors to the town of 5,000.

Travelweek spoke with Kim Clarke, Director of Sales for the Globus family of brands about the history of the town and the Passion Play, as well as who to target for sales and why Globus is the best option for booking.

 

The company’s special packages range from 7 to 14 days and all include a premier location ticket for the play. These escorted motorcoach tours will visit Germany in depth, or take travellers to other countries as well, such as Switzerland, Austria and Italy.

Several of the tours – unique to Globus and Cosmos – are faith-based, such as ‘Catholic Central Europe’, ‘Shrines of Alpine Europe’ and ‘European Reformation’. Others combine the Oberammergau experience with some of Globus’ most popular itineraries, such as ‘The Best of Switzerland’. There’s also an escorted itinerary with value brand Cosmos (‘The Shrines of Alpine Europe with Oberammergau’, from $2,273 plus airfare).

As with all Globus tours, hand-picked accommodation with breakfast, the services of a knowledgeable and experienced Tour Director and transportation on a comfortable, WiFi-equipped coach and more are included, along with premium reserved seats in front of the Oberammergau theatre.

Prices for the Globus tours start at $2,999 (plus airfare). The company also features special rates for church and other groups.
