Globus Launches 2011 Family Friendly Vacation Program

Nearly half of all leisure travelers took a family vacation last year and catering to this trend the Globus family of brands unveiled its 2011 Family Travel packages in both Europe and the U.S. The program features inclusive-style highlights such as daily breakfasts and dinners as well as spring break and peak family travel departures. Through its 2011 family-focused vacations, Globus has designed parent-, grandparent- and kid-friendly getaways offering memorable destinations, sites, enrichment and stories for every generation, including a new London to Munich vacation.

“Families value vacation time and they are also looking for great value while on vacation,” said Steve Born, vice president of marketing for the Globus family of brands. “With our Family Travel tours, we have not only created journeys that give travelers unparalleled access into the sites they want to see and the stories to bring histories to life – thanks, in part, to expert Tour Directors. We also offer great cost savings of up to 50 percent for young travelers (ages five to 17).

Ranging from seven to 12 days, Globus’ escorted family vacations offer pacakges from family pizza parties and private boat tours in Italy or an excursion to King Ludwig II’s magical Neuschwanstein Castle and Eurostar train rides from London to Paris to Basel to a chuck wagon cookout and Snake River adventure in the wild west.
