We build free time into every Cosmos vacation, so you can eat, shop, and explore the way you want. Whether you’re into art, music, food, wine, or history, we give you the freedom to truly personalize your trip with optional excursions that are meaningful to you. Best of all, you can make your selections, and even prepay for most of them, in advance online at Cosmos.com/MyCosmos.
When it comes to meals, Cosmos strikes a perfect balance. We include some meals to save you time and money, yet we also leave enough free time so you can sample your destination’s gastronomic delights on your own.
After a day of traveling you want to relax at a comfortable, clean, and attractive hotel. We select hotels with the best guestrooms (always with a private bathroom), service, and food for the money. See individual itinerary pages for hotels.
At the heart of every great Cosmos tour are the friendly, knowledgeable folks who show you around and help you maximize your free time. We go insist on the most professional Tour Directors and Local Guides.
When you travel with Cosmos, you’re also giving back. Cosmos is committed to sustainable travel and minimizing its impact on the environment and to reducing its dependence on non-renewable resources. In this endeavor, we have implemented policies to support this sustainable travel mission and are working carefully to enhance our products with this mission and our values combined. Cosmos maintains a policy of "Leave Only Footprints and Take Only Photos."
It all began more than 90 years ago...
...when a young man purchased a boat to transport visitors across Lake Lugano, Switzerland. Who would have thought that this single boat would launch one of the world's leading travel companies?
Today, the Globus family of brands is a global company reaching every corner of the world, yet remains family-owned and steeped in the values Antonio Mantegazza envisioned when he set out across Lake Lugano—to enlighten travelers by showing them the very best of the destinations we know so well.

“My husband and I took the Cosmopolitan Europe (17 day) tour with Cosmos. We look back fondly on the wonderful experience. We had the greatest time! The undertaking could have easily gone downhill if we had tried to cover that many cities and countries in that span of time. We would’ve had endless hours looking up tourist information and reserving accommodations, not to mention transportation. These are the kind of details that were expertly handled by Cosmos and all we had to do was show up! We recommend coach tours with Cosmos to all our friends. Our Tour Director, Andrej, and our driver, Donato, led our group with the utmost professionalism and a passion for travel. We look forward to our next Cosmos tour!”
“I did this vacation solo. I was a little hesitant at first, but quickly made friends with other people joining the tour - even before getting off the plane! I couldn't have imagined it to be any better than it turned out to be! The tour guide and bus driver set the bar high and I don't think I'll find another pair like them. The food and accommodations were lovely. The time allowed on each stop was sufficient and the options for excursions were perfect. I highly recommend Cosmos.”
