Globus has added five new escorted group vacations to its 2020 line-up of South Pacific vacations.
“We’re seeing a significant increase in interest in Australia, New Zealand and Fiji as travellers put them high on their wish-lists,” said Stéphanie Bishop managing director, Globus family of brands. “As a result, we’ve increased our vacations by 50 per cent with new, immersive journeys to Australia – including Tasmania – and to New Zealand.”
Memorable moments, she adds, include a visit to a kangaroo sanctuary on the Australian Safari, a premium wine-tasting on the Best Kept Secret: Western Australia tour and exploring the surprisingly delicious foodie culture of the island state on the Wild Tasmania tour.
Transportation is by air-conditioned motorcoach with free WiFi.
