 Tour Director

With GLOBUS, there’s no better way to get to know your destination than through the eyes of a Tour Director. We’d like you to meet one of our Tour Directors, who average over a decade of experience and are representative of the type of expert that will be with you on your vacation.

EARL SHANNON

Escorting tours for more than 15 years

After many years of studying history then tourism, plus combining that with my love of travelling and exploring, becoming a Tour Director was an essential part of my DNA. For me having a part in assisting guests to enjoy the diversity, extraordinary beauty and the unique culture that Europe has to offer is unbelievably satisfying. I am constantly told by my guests that "You love being a Tour Director don't you Earl?", to which I simply reply, "Is it that obvious?"
