“Great trip in Western Canada ”
Trip:    Overall Rating: 5/5
Very well organised from the start with Georgie Walpole at Global Journeys always on hand to answer questions, as this was our first coach tour. Our tour director Sharon was excellent, knowledgeable and kept the tour going smoothly. She went out of her way to be helpful. The driver, Janusz was also fantastic. The tour was paced well, with enough free time to do our own thing. We saw so many beautiful sights and felt it was well worth the cost.

“Great snapshot of Spain and Portugal ”
Trip:    Overall Rating: 4/5
I really enjoyed this tour- well organised itinerary and helpful tour guide. There were some long travel days but they were usually broken up with visits to various medieval towns. Hotels were fairly comfortable, some were a bit old but nearly all were in good locations. The group was a mix of couples, families and single travellers. Overall a very enjoyable tour.

“Worry free”
Trip:    Overall Rating: 4/5
We always book online and have found our trips run very well. Flights and tours go together without problems. Tour itself run perfectly with Ken Hartman at the helm. Perfect time to travel as weather was good and the snow was still melting in places.

“8 Day Scenic Slovenia & Croatia”
Trip:    Overall Rating: 4/5
The tour as a whole was very good. 35 people all got along very well with lots of laughs. The tour leader was very good. He looked after us very well. Global Journeys was easy to book with. This was my 5 tour with the Globus brand and I would book with Global Journeys again.

“Enjoyable Journey in Japan”
Trip:    Overall Rating: 4/5
We thought the trip was well managed though it would have been nicer to be allowed more time in some places and also to have avoided some of the massive crowds at the more well known sites. There were other options that would have been equally as impressive to visit without having to fight the crowds at the World Heritage Sites. Also, to have more time available with not such a hectic schedule.

“Trip through Italy to all the best parts”
Trip:    Overall Rating: 5/5
Our trip was great. All the people on the tourgot on all very well and our tour guide was exceptional. Hhe had a sense of humour and advised us along the tour what to expect that day and the next plus was very informative. Enjoyed the Colosseum, Vatican, Cinque Terre, Pisa, the Swiss alps, Venice, Assisi, loved Pompeii and Capri. The accommodation was different to Australia with no kettle. I think if you like to have one in your room, I'd advise taking a small kettle , with tea or coffee and dried milk would be a great idea. Our first hotel loved the darkness of the room but we love a bit of coolness in our room and some hotels were not allowed to have the air conditioner on so luckily it wasn't too hot. The weather at this time of the year in April was just right. We did have rain but this occurred on just the day that we were mostly in the coach so it didn't cause any problems. I'm think some of the optional excursions should have been included like the last meal.

“Central Europe”
Trip:    Overall Rating: 4/5
This is a fantastic tour with so much to see. The included Auschwitz Concentration Camp tour was most welcome; a very important reminder! The optional Wieliczka Salt Mines in Krakow was a amazing experience. Tunde, our tour director, was knowledgeable and helpful. Francesco was a skillful and safe driver. Accommodation and food (included breakfast and dinner) were of good quality. I enjoyed this tour thoroughly and would highly recommend it.

“Sunny Spain - and don't forget Portugal”
Trip:    Overall Rating: 5/5
Have travelled before with Cosmos and booked through Global Journeys. Global Journeys (Hannah) made booking easy, and Cosmos are always good value for money. Saw a lot in the time, but didn't feel rushed. The tour director was both knowledgeable and helpful, and the other travellers were varied in both ages and nationalities, but all mixed together to help make an unforgettable holiday. Would I book with Global Journeys and Cosmos again - definitely.

Making It Easy For Solo Travellers
Making It Easy For Solo Travellers

More than one-third of people travelling with Cosmos are single or travelling alone. For that reason, we accept reservations on a "guaranteed share" basis. At Cosmos, we want you to stretch your holiday dollar further so rather than force single supplements, we charge the basic price and match up singles of the same gender in twin-bedded rooms. For single travellers who prefer the privacy of their own room, single accommodation can, of course, be reserved. Single room supplements are listed on our itinerary pages.

Cosmos FAQ's

Some of the frequently asked questions Cosmos receive from their clients
Will I be travelling with people from other countries?

Cosmos is an international company. As such, you will be travelling with like-minded enthusiasts from countries as diverse as the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, as well as Europe and Asia regions.

What if I am travelling alone?

More than one third of Cosmos' clients travel alone. Because Cosmos strives to offer the best value for money, we feel it is unfair to charge an expensive single room supplement without offering an alternative. We therefore can provide clients with a 'guaranteed share' facility. This means that we charge singles the basic per person price and match up singles of the same gender in twin-bedded rooms. If we cannot find a roommate for a tour member who has booked on a 'guaranteed share' basis, we will absorb the single room supplement. For mutual comfort, we do adopt a no-smoking rule in shared rooms. 'Guaranteed share' cannot be offered for pre and post tour accommodation. 'Guaranteed share' basis is unavailable on certain vacations.

What is a single room supplement?

If you prefer the privacy of your own room, this can be arranged for you with an extra fee. Single supplement prices are listed on each itinerary page.

When can I expect to get my travel documents & itinerary?

Travel documents, including any air tickets, tour itinerary, hotel lists, and helpful hints and other information are sent approximately 20-30 days prior to your tour departure. Your Global Journeys Tour Consultant can organise these earlier if you are travelling before your holiday starts.

Am I expected to pay gratuities?

It is customary worldwide to pay tips to Tour Directors and Drivers on all international vacations and these are not included in your quote. The option to prepay these tips prior to departure is possible however. Please ask your Tour Consultant to include this in your quote. You will receive gratuity vouchers with your travel documents and all you need to do is give this to the Tour Director, Driver, Cruise Director at the end of the holiday.

How much luggage can I bring?

Porterage for one suitcase per person travelling is included in the holiday price. Airport and train station porterage is not included. Your single bag should not exceed the dimensions of 76 x 53 x 28cm (30" x 21" x 11") and weight of 22kg (50lbs). Carry-on luggage is limited to one bag per person travelling and must not exceed the dimensions of 30 x 28 x 14cm (12" x 11" x 6"). For safety reasons, wheeled carry on bags are not suitable and will not be permitted as hand luggage on the coaches. Carry-on bags must be small enough to store in overhead bins or under the seat of you.

Can I book optional excursions before travel?

You can pre purchase selected optional excursions for your tour between 90 and 10 days prior to departure, on departures which have been placed onto a "Guaranteed Departure" status. Your Global Journeys Tour Consultant will provide more information to you at the time.

What are the standard bed configurations?

Every effort is made to reserve only twin-bedding room. Occasionally, some hotels will only provide double-bedded rooms. These rooms will be allocated to couple where possible. If your preference is for a double bed, please request this at time of booking. Please note that as we do not own the hotels, and it is the hotels themselves that undertake the room allocation, double rooms are only a request and cannot be guaranteed.

Are there laundry facilities?

Most hotels offer a laundry service, however it can sometimes be costly. Alternatively, some cities offer Laundromats.

Is there Wi-Fi on the coach?

Cosmos coaches offer free wireless internet connection whilst touring. This allows you to browse online and share your experience with your friends and family back home. We need to highlight free wireless availability in coaches is not offered on local coaches used for transfers or occasionally for sightseeing tours. Wireless service is not available in some countries and certain regions of other countries that do not have Wi-Fi service coverage. Downloading is not available on the coaches but you can do this in the hotels. Please check with the hotel reception or concierge where the free Wi-Fi is located in each hotel.

What is SafetyNet Protection?

Cosmos is dedicated to ensuring your trip is worry and hassle free, even when booking. Should you be uncertain what your commitments will be leading up to your departure, Cosmos offer an optional SafetyNet Protection policy for an additional fee. Read more here.

I'm finding it difficult to match two tours together?

Have you considered pre or post tour accommodation? Cosmos offer fantastic rates hard to find elsewhere and this may enable you to select sequential tours with minimal disruption to your intended travel plans.

What does the tour cost include?

Our packages take in each destinations's most popular highlights. They are carefully planned to include visits to places of interest and panoramic drives through areas of natural beauty. There's so much for you to look forward to!

Why is my contact information collected when I book?

There may be times when unforeseen events beyond our control impacttravel schedules and potentially disrupt cruises, tours, or packages. These include, but are not limited to, severe weather conditions, acts of nature, and government travel advisories. Under such circumstances, it is critical that Cosmos be able to contact you immediately and reliably - including nights, weekends, and holidays - to make sure we've informed you of any possible changes to your travel.
