Exclusive: Globus Unveils 2007 River Cruising Product Line-Up

In a Travel Agent exclusive, the Globus family of brands gave the magazine a sneak peak at its 2007 river cruising products. For the first time, Avalon Waterways is organizing tours to the Galapagos Islands. Jen Halboth, a spokeswoman for the company, said Globus is instituting two new itineraries, one an 8-night tour called, "Ecuador and the Galapagos," will cost $3,539 without airfare and $4,315 with air out of Atlanta, based on today's prices. The second tour is the 13-night "Discover the Galapagos and Peru," and will cost $5,888 with air and $5,039 without airfare. Clients arrive in Quito for new programs, tour the city, and then fly to the Galapagos Island and cruise for four nights on the private motor yacht Isabella II. In "Discover the Galapagos," clients will then fly to Lima and tour the city, as well as Cuzco, Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley. Globus has scheduled 14 departure dates from May to June 2007 for each tour.
