2021 Tour Details View 2022 Tour Details » View 2023 Tour Details »

Like the world’s most beloved tapestries hanging in Europe’s most famous museums, this 14-day tour of Europe intertwines colorful scenery, centuries-old culture, and the timeless stories of seven countries to present an unforgettable experience.

In addition to the stunning imagery of the castle-dotted Rhine Valley, the snow-dusted Swiss Alps, and the olive-clad Tuscan hills, you’ll be introduced to the artful subjects who help tell the tales of time—the woodcarvers of the Black Forest, the glassblowers of Venice, and the beer makers from Rhineland. A perfectly woven itinerary of fascinating cities, charming countryside, and creative cuisine, this multi-country tour threads together the most memorable sights and experiences of Europe.

 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.

SIMONA FARRIS

Escorting tours for more than 20 years

I love being a Tour Director - I enjoy communicating with and looking after guests from all over the world. It is something you can never get bored with, where the most important goal is making sure the guests return home happy, and with unforgettable memories. Personally, I prefer to escort Panorama Tours because I like to show people the variety of different cultures, languages and customs that Europe has to offer - although, being Italian I am particularly happy when I get to introduce guests to my beautiful country.
