The Globus Family of Brands turns 90 this year and to commemorate this feat, Cosmos has unveiled 12 vacations to Europe (including budget river cruises to Croatia), four vacations to USA and Canada, and two new vacations to Asia. Cosmos’ 2018 list additionally includes some new destinations like Iceland, Portugal, Australia and Africa, informs Varesh Chopra, Regional Director – South Asia and Middle East, Globus Family of Brands.

When travellers choose Cosmos, they get all the benefits of escorted travel including a greater choice of activities, plenty of free time to explore the destination the way they want with vacations starting from $100 per day. It was 90 years ago when our founder Antonio Mantegazza purchased a rowboat to transport visitors across Lake Lugano, Switzerland. Nine decades later, we are still continuing to have travellers pack their passion for travel and rediscover destinations in new exciting ways,” Chopra says.
Some of the new tours include Idyllic Iceland; Highlights of Andalusia; Norwegian Fjord Explorer; Gourmet Tuscany; A Taste of Russia; Apulia, the Heel of Italy; Postcard from Portugal; The Splendors of Italy and Sicily; Rome, Florence and Italy; Pilgrimage to Lourdes; Venice, Slovenia, Croatia and Montenegro; Spiritual Highlights of Iberia, Lourdes and Italy; Alaskan Highlights; Atlantic Canada’s Coastal Wonders; Historic Train Journey; America’s National Parks; Timeless Japan; Grand Tour of Sri Lanka, among others.
