Cosmos

At Cosmos, we’re not just hooked on travel as a destination, but on the way travel makes you feel. Our promise is to make holidays you’ll never forget, and success is all about delivering a hassle-free holiday for you. Our story began in Switzerland 90 years ago, where local legend Antonio Mantegazza bought a row boat to transport tourists over Lake Lugano.

With the help of our knowledgeable friends, your Local Guides and Tour Directors, we constantly unearth new local secrets to make your adventure as awe-stonishing as possible. Connect with a new world of people, places and experiences; ignite your travel imagination and feel alive. It’s simple, made special.

At Globus, we’re not just hooked on travel as a destination, but on the way travel makes you feel. Our promise is to craft adventures you’ll want to re-live forever. Our story began more than 90 years ago, when a young Swiss Antonio Mantegazza began transporting tourists across Lake Lugano on his rowboat, sharing stories and revealing local secrets along the way. On that lake, Globus was born. Discovering a passion for tourism and a knack for business, Antonio’s services expanded beyond river transport to bus touring, from Switzerland to Europe and then, the world. After 90 years curating travel wonderment, our passion for curating the perfect trip remains. At Globus, we have the experience and local knowledge to craft immersive adventures that make you feel alive. Expect to see all the major sites, but then go deeper, to the beating heart of every new discovery. As they say, when you’re in the moment, it’s not what you know, but who you know, and you’ll quickly discover our Tour Directors know all the local secrets and insider tips. Let us connect you with a new world of people, places and experiences that will ignite your imagination.

Albatross tours are genuinely inclusive and include all those special excursions and visits, sightseeing tours and feature dinners –  we even include the end of tour tips to your tour manager and driver! On an Albatross Tour you will never be sold ‘optional’ excursions such as a feature dinner or entry to an attraction such as Neuschwanstein Castle. Why?  Because we believe these expensive hidden extras (usually costing over $100 per person per day) are entirely predictable – so we have already included them for you in our tour price. Travelling with Albatross, you will find it far easier to budget for your daily holiday expenses as there is complete transparency on where your money is going. We encourage you to compare our tour prices on a cost per day basis, and take into consideration that Albatross Tours have NO additional ‘on tour’ costs. Rest assured, by the time you get back home and walk back through your front door you will not have paid any more. Albatross Tours offer exceptional value for money! On any tour you simply must have some free time to relax, explore or simply ‘do your own thing’. As Albatross Tours always include and pre-plan all your special sightseeing and activities, we guarantee that all your essential, relaxing free time remains completely untouched. Perfect for you to properly enjoy and savour each wonderful destination.

We consider everyone who travels with us to be our personal guest. Every moment matters to us because we know it matters to you. This may be because at heart we are a family owned company that has been in business for 100 years. It may be because our team are passionate about sharing their own love of travel and uncovering mysteries. Choosing Collette comes with benefits that take your guided travel experience to another level. Our inclusive tours provide you more value for your money and more of what makes travel special.
