Globus has popped the cork on its 2016 collection of European holidays, introducing new tours across the continent and a string of new unforgettable experiences – including a peek into the cellars of one of the finest Champagne houses in France.
From now until December 1, 2015, Globus is offering earlybird savings of 10 per cent* on all Globus Europe 2016 holidays, allowing savings of up to $1892 per couple. Additional savings of up to $600* per couple are available when tours are combined with international airfares.
The new range of Globus 2016 Europe holidays includes dozens of ‘Local Favourites’ – special experiences that take guests behind the scenes for an insight into a region’s traditions and culture.
Among them is a new Champagne excursion that allows guests to explore the labyrinth cellars of the famous Pommery Champagne house in France, including a tasting session marked with a flourish by a sabrage – the ceremonial opening of a bottle using a sword.
The Champagne experience is included in one of seven new tours introduced in the Globus 2016 Europe program, the nine-day Paris, Champagne & the French Countryside. Beginning with two nights in Paris, it travels through the heart of the Champagne region to Reims and onward to destinations including Strasbourg, Beaune, Lyon, Avignon and Marseilles (from $2339* per person twin share including 10 per cent discount).
Other new tours include the seven-day London & Country, a focus on the British capital with excursions to some of the most celebrated parts of England including Bath, Stonehenge, Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avalon and the Cotswolds (from $2195* per person twin share inc discount).
In Italy, Globus has introduced the seven-day Splendors of Italy, a week based in Milan with travel by high-speed rail to Florence and Venice as well as an excursion to Turin (from $2195 per person twin share inc discount).
Globus has also added to its choice of sailing holidays with the 10-day Dubrovnik & Adriatic Odyssey which includes seven nights aboard a modern three-masted yacht. Beginning in Dubrovnik, it sails the island-studded Dalmatian coast to Korcula before heading to Montenegro and Greece (from $4840 per person twin share inc discount).
Other new tours in the Globus 2016 Europe brochure include two new tours focusing on the battlefields of France and a cruise among the islands of Greece and Turkey. In all, there are more than 80 different itineraries to choose from, covering everything from Spain and Morocco to Russia and Scandinavia.
