UK-based escort touring provider, Cosmos, has launched 25 new tours to exotic destinations in South and Central America, Asia, Africa and the South Pacific.
Travel advisors looking to provide immersive tours can now suggest journeys to exotic destinations via Cosmos’ new itineraries. From tours to the magnificent Machu Picchu, through a New Delhi market in a tuk-tuk, or dancing the fiery Tango in Buenos Aires, Cosmos has launched a range of new experiences available for 2019 and 2020 across four continents.
Cosmos’ classic tours are designed for great value getaways, while its sister brand, Globus, provides escorted tours for a premium experience. In addition, a newly-launched Escapes by Globus offers out-of-season trips that include stays in highly-rated, centrally located hotels with VIP access to must-see sights.
Central and South America
With nine brand new tours introduced in Central and South America, customers can take a journey through a world of volcanoes, cloud forests, coral reefs, national parks, historic cities and world heritage sites.
On Cosmos’ eight-day Gateway to Costa Rica tour, explorers can walk through the treetops on the Arenal Hanging Bridges before venturing to the Pacific Coast. In Peru, Globus’ 13-day Legacy of the Incas tour takes guests to Machu Picchu and offers the chance to discover the shores of Lake Titicaca and its islands by boat.
Guests on Cosmos and Globus tours can view zebras, gazelles and giraffes roaming outside their room on one of six new Africa tours available for departures throughout 2019.
