Overview

Short Description

If your idea of meeting the locals is cradling koalas, hand feeding kangaroos, and laughing with a school of clownfish, then this is the vacation for you. Animal lovers unite on this spectacular safari tour of Australia. From Brisbane’s Australia Zoo, “Home of the Crocodile Hunter,” to Alice Spring’s Kangaroo Sanctuary, “Home of the Kangaroo Dundee,” you’ll get to know Down Under’s most colorful creatures and characters. The furry fun continues with a hop over to Melbourne to witness Phillip Island’s famous heartwarming Penguin Parade. Wombats and wallabies welcome you to the island state of Tasmania, as does the infamous Tasmanian devil—in its own unique way. Going below the surface, this in-depth tour of Australia also leads you to the marine life at the Great Barrier Reef, the whales, seals, and dolphins off the Tasman Peninsula, and the city and harbors of sunny Sydney.

Did you know the koala sleeps an average of 20 hours a day? Why not add a 3-night Monograms vacation to Fiji to your tour of Australia and curl up in a beachside hammock yourself? Between naps, you’ll enjoy a Sigatoka River safari and the sun, fun, and genuine warmth of the islanders.

Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.

Amazing tour company we were 3 days into our tour in Brasil when the tour was cancelled in March 2020
A full refund was given to us without any of the usual problems associated with getting money back.
Globus proved to us that they are a very ethical company and for this reason we will not hesitate to use Globus again when this pandemic is over and we can recommend any traveler to use this fantastic company.Well done Globus team we love what you done for us mr & mrs Comito stay safe

We had booked a trip in June of 2020 for spring of 2021. When they cancelled our trip we called and told them we would like our money back since that was an option, and it took about 6 weeks but our whole party (6) of us, received our money on each individual card we used. I’m surprised at all the people saying they can’t get their money back, we dealt with the company directly, the lady that booked our trip was very helpful. This would of been our 4th trip, and we always enjoy them.

DON'T USE GLOBUS OR TOUR RADAR - They will not return our Deposit

Our tour of Norway was booked in 2019. The trip was supposed to take place June - July 2020. Then Covid came.
We are from Australia and were heavily locked down from about March 2020. We wrote to the travel agent (TOUR RADAR) who have done little to help get our $700 deposit returned to us. In contrast we had all of our Air Fares returned by the airline we were going to use and had booked with directly (No travel Agent involved).
We were given a credit to use by June - July 2021. However, there is no way we will be able to travel to Norway at this time either because international travel (except to New Zealand) is not permitted by the Australian Government. Not that we would want to go anyway because of the high number of Covid cases in Europe and Scandinavia.
Tour Radar and Globus now say that we should extend the credit yet again to 2022. We are at a vulnerable age and by 2022 will most likely not be able to travel internationally again, even with Covid under control.
Decent companies have returned monies paid but Globus and Tour radar continue to refuse. They are stealing our money.
