Inside Globus Family Groups2019-01-03T15:23:33+00:00


As we wrap up another year and think back on the fabulous journeys we have experienced around the world; I would like to take a moment to express a heartfelt Thank You for your partnership in travel this year. You have fulfilled a lot of bucket list items and created amazing memories for your groups.

For 2018 groups really embraced Globus Local Favorites, and our Undiscovered Tour series for more unique experiences. Avalon Choice and Avalon Active Discovery continue to draw groups who want to experience Europe’s rivers in new and exciting ways; and for 2019 we expect the National Parks and Canada to remain popular along with exotic locations like Peru and South Africa.

There is a great growth in Groups traveling and we wanted to share some our favorite travel experiences of 2018. No matter where you decide to travel in 2019 the world is waiting for you to explore and we look forward to helping you plan your next journey!


Matt Galloway – Group Business Development Manager & Joanna Dyer – Direct of National Group Sales

“The Zugspitze is the tallest peak in Germany, the panoramic views are amazing and you can see what seems like all of Germany!”

Isabella Mastroianni – Direct Group Business Development Manager, Atlantic Region

“I’m a huge Lord of The Rings fan and this was even more amazing than it looked on the big screen. I would definitely love to go back to New Zealand again and would recommend it to anyone for the incredible natural beauty, friendly people and great wines”

Luke Pabst – Direct Group Account Manager

“I went to nine ski areas last winter. This picture is  Via Ferrata course in Telluride —one of my favorite places in the world”

Cynde DiSaverio – Sales and Marketing Coordinator

“The beauty of Iceland is astounding, black lava beaches and volcanic caves, it’s just a magical place”

Kathy Montgomery – Custom Tour Sales Associate

“I had the pleasure of exploring the coast of Oregon this year on the Globus Pacific Coast Adventure, it was amazingly beautiful and I’m glad I was able to visit this region”

Chris DiPietro – Sales Development Supervisor

“I was able to join a pasta making class as part of my Monograms trip to Rome, Florence & Venice. The pasta was easy to make, came out delicious, and there was wine!”

Greg Poniewaz – Direct Group Business Development Manager

Krakow was one of the coolest cities I’ve ever been to. Untouched by WWII, it has so many historical buildings and touring opportunities, but is also a hip, clean, vibrant city where the locals are both friendly and proud of this wonderful place. It is truly one of the real hidden gems in Europe!”

Matt Lang – Custom Tour Coordinator

“This year I took our Cosmos Dixieland & Rhythms Tour and had the amazing fortune to try authentic Chicago Deep Dish, it is my new favorite pizza!”

Beth Lindemulder – Sales and Marketing Coordinator

“I LOVE otters! Visiting the otters at the Monterey Bay Aquarium was one of the highlights of my year.”

Deborah Stevens – Direct Group Business Development Manager

“During my visit to the American Cemetery in Normandy with Avalon I met this lovely kitty who stole my heart, I love animals and seeing them while traveling always brings a smile to my face.”
