Globus Introduces Backyard Getaways

October 24, 2011 By: George Dooley Travel Agent

The wonders of North America should not be missed, says Globus,  as it introduces nearly 50 tours from "Sea to Shining Sea,” providing travelers access to and unparalleled experiences in the country’s most extraordinary places.

"Many of the world’s awe‐inspiring destinations sit in our own backyard,” said Scott Nisbet, president and CEO of the Globus family of brands. “Our robust offering of authentic and enriching vacations for 2012 range from Special Event itineraries like San Francisco & California Wine Country, Calgary Stampede and Polar Bears of Churchill to tours through the ‘Old West,’ ‘Historic East’ and Cruise & Tour vacations (in Alaska and Hawaii) to Regional Discoveries in America’s national parks.”

This year, as part of its 2012 offerings, Globus is partnering with the National Park Foundation (NPF), the official charity of America’s national parks, to provide unique tour experiences in these amazing national treasures. And, as part of this GoParks! Tours partnership, when travelers book a Globus U.S. national parks vacation, the company will make a donation to the NPF at no additional cost to travelers.

“Our outdoor escapes – those vacations featuring America’s natural landscapes – are among our most popular vacations,” said Nisbet. “And now, with GoParks! Tours, we’re not only giving our travelers oases where postcard views meet life‐altering experiences, we’re helping ensure the ongoing conservation of our national parks.”

Globus’ top six (6) North American itineraries:
• Parks & Canyon Spectacular (14 days), priced from $2,979
• Grand Hawaii Vacation (13 days), priced from $3,249
• Eastern U.S. & Canada Discovery (13 days), priced from $2,819
• Spectacular Alaska (10 days), priced from $2,729
• California Classics (9 days), priced from $2,149
• Grand Western Canada Vacation (12 days), priced from $3,189

On Globus’ North America tours, travelers are privy to expertly designed, inclusive land programs that feature world‐class accommodations, guided sightseeing (complete with headsets), engaging lectures and unequaled VIP access into key destinations.

“When travelers vacation with us, they won’t just photograph one of America’s most beautiful spots on our Canyon Country Adventure, they’ll travel by four‐wheel drive through the Monument Valley tribal park with a Navajo guide who will share facts about the valley as well as stories about their heritage and culture, “ said Nisbet.

“And, they won’t just visit Nashville with Sights & Sounds of the South, they’ll stand in RCA’s Studio B, the recording home of Elvis Presley and record their own record where countless legends, including the King, have performed.”

Not only do Globus tours offer the foundation for a perfectly planned and executed, inclusive vacation, they provide an unparalleled sense of place and history thanks to the depth of sites, sounds and insight travelers experience on tour, Globus says.

“We understand that destinations aren’t just places on the map, they are the backdrops of some of the most fascinating scenes and exciting stories in history,” said Nisbet.

Early Booking Incentive: Travelers who book a 2012 Parks & Canyonland Spectacular or Enchanting Canyonlands 2012 vacations will receive $600 off per couple ($300 off/person) if booked before November 29, 2011.
