archaeological treasures, sunny beaches, crystal-blue water, and much
more await you on this marvellous Greece vacation.
Your tour starts and ends in Athens and includes guided sightseeing
with an expert Local Guide. Among the sights you will see, you’ll visit
the Acropolis, located on a rocky promontory and dating to the 5th
century BC. Then enjoy the highlight of your vacation, a 7-night cruise
on the Aegean Sea cruising to some of the world’s most beautiful
Cruise to Kusadasi in Turkey and enjoy the white-sand beaches, the
covered bazaar, and visit ancient Ephesus, with its fascinating Greek,
Roman, and Byzantine excavations. Explore the Old Town of Rhodes and
visit the fabulous Temple of Athena in Lindos. Next is Heraklion on
Crete and Knossos, the center of the 3000BC Minoan civilization. Stop
in Santorini (weather permitting), still an active volcano offering one
of the world's most breath-taking panoramas, where you'll see bright
white buildings and cliffs rising from the Aegean Sea—one of Greece’s
most beautiful spots. Next is Milos, the “Island of Colors” followed by
Mykonos, Greece's jet-set island with its seafront village, sandy
beaches, and whitewashed houses. Wander through the picturesque alleys
and narrow streets; take photos of the windmills that overlook the
embankment; relax at a waterfront café; and watch for the
official mascot of Mykonos, a pelican.
Whilst sailing, enjoy the ship's many amenities. Sunbathe, sip a cool
drink, splash in the pool, and relax. The Greek Islands are calling
you, and now is your chance to experience their beauty, fascinating
histories, stunning scenery and ancient monuments. This is a dream

BEGAN MORE THAN
90 YEARS AGO
In 1928, a young man purchased a rowboat to
visitors across Lake Lugano, Switzerland. Who would have thought that
this single rowboat would launch one of the world's leading travel
Today, the Globus family of brands is a global company reaching every
corner of the world, yet remains family-owned and steeped in the values
Antonio had when he set out across Lake Lugano—to enlighten travelers
by showing them the very best of the destinations we know so well.
frequent trips across the scenic lake led him to
consider opportunities in a different market - tourism. His
entrepreneurial instinct pushed him to gradually acquire some
motorcoaches to transport tourists around the Lake Lugano area. In
1928, Antonio opened a company specializing in motorcoach touring
called Globus Viaggi. The company began with a fleet of 12 coaches
which operated local excursions for European tourists in Switzerland.
1950, Globus Viaggi had grown to a fleet of 33 coaches
and featured overnight excursions to Rome, Venice, the Dolomites and
the French Riviera. Gradually, these became regularly scheduled tours
and grew longer to cover more ground. Later that decade, under the
leadership of Werner Albek, Antonio's business partner, Globus
pioneered the concept of Grand European Touring by offering first-class
European tours to North Americans. By 1961, the company launched its
Cosmos arm, which featured affordable, value-priced European touring
for the cost-conscious British traveler.
coach tours were so successful that Cosmos soon
introduced another form of travel for the British market: air holiday
packages to the sunny destinations of southern Europe. By 1968, Cosmos
air holidays became so popular the company formed its own airline,
Monarch Airlines. Monarch Airlines started out modestly with two used
Britannia aircraft and eventually blossomed into one of the most
successful European charter companies with a large fleet of modern jets
and its own engineering division.
the flagship of Sergio Mantegazza, current president
and son of Antonio, Globus began expanding its markets beyond Great
Britain and North America. Since 1974, travel packages have been sold
in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and most recently in Southeast Asia.
Starting in the 70s, the company also aggressively expanded its
offerings, introducing travelers to more countries than any other tour
operator with packages to Africa, South and North America, Europe, the
South Pacific and Asia.
the Globus family of brands is marketed and operated
by a network of more than 32 independent tourism and aviation
businesses, serviced by a group of more than 5,000 professionals
worldwide. Combined, Globus, Cosmos, and Monograms carry over 500,000
passengers a year, making the organization the leading operator of
guided vacations worldwide. Globus attributes its success to the ideals
of founder Antonio Mantegazza. For three generations, his vision, hard
work, love for travel, and commitment have guided the company. These
values are the cornerstone on which Globus was built and will continue
