Protecting World Treasures for the Future
Being the leader in touring travel and vacation packages might be enough for some companies, but we don't stop there. With more than 85 years of experience designing itineraries and exclusive excursions, we know what it takes to create an enlightening and memorable vacation. It's the difference between visiting Napa's famous vineyards—and learning how to actually pair wines with various flavors; between a quick photo stop at Vancouver's Capilano Suspension Bridge—and a walk across it for a unique perspective of rainforest trails and magnificent evergreens. And it's also the difference between showing off the world's most spectacular destinations and sights—and taking responsibility to preserve the attractions that our travellers go to great lengths to experience.
Our partnership with Tourism Cares™, established by the United States Tour Operators Association (USTOA), helps us translate this feeling into action. Globus has targeted "American Icons" for preservation/restoration funding. Our passengers can also get involved directly through additional contributions.
