Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

Cruise Venice's Grand Canal in a private water taxi, ride a horse-drawn carriage through Innsbruck or sit down to tea in a 150-year-old Irish farmhouse -- these are just a few of the "Local Favorites" enjoyed by Globus guests on the company's well-crafted European tours.

I'll tell you more about this tour operator's vacations in Europe -- including some brand-new itineraries for 2015 -- in this newsletter. Let's start with these terrific money-saving offers for our customers from Globus.

Receive $1,000 per couple ($500 per person) in air credit when you purchase an Italy tour and Star Alliance flights by October 28.

Receive $200 to $400 per couple ($100 to $200 per person) in air credit when you purchase a Europe vacation and flights. Book by October 28.

Globus offers a broad array of European tours, from explorations that focus on a single country to panoramic vacations that highlight a variety of cultures, cuisines and sights. And Globus offers you plenty of choices -- the company has 14 different itineraries in Italy alone, for example, and 14 unique itineraries in the British Isles.

The packaged, fully escorted tours of Globus include superior hotels chosen for their comfort and proximity to key sites, some meals (including traditional meals at local restaurants) and sightseeing with VIP access to top attractions. You'll be accompanied by Tour Directors who average more than 14 years of experience, and you'll have free Wi-Fi on most of the company's comfortable motor coaches in Europe. Airport transfers are included when you purchase air-inclusive tours.

And each Globus vacation includes at least two of the tour operator's signature Local Favorites, which spotlight a destination's special offerings. Here are a few more examples:
  • Take an overnight Baltic Sea cruise -- complete with a traditional smorgasbord dinner -- from Stockholm to Helsinki on Northern Capitals.
  • Dine in a restaurant on one of Florence's historic piazzas, take a day cruise on the Rhine River and visit Munich's Hofbrauhaus -- the famed 425-year-old beer hall -- on Continental Introduction.
Finally, here are seven brand-new Europe itineraries from Globus. Click the links for more details, dates and rates.

Italian Sampler -- See the Sistine Chapel in Rome, Michelangelo's "David" in Florence and top attractions in off-the-beaten-path towns like Mantua and Padua.

Iberian Tapestry -- This trip focuses on Spain and Portugal and includes Barcelona's Gothic quarter, a flamenco show in Seville and the 16th-century Jeronimos Monastery in Lisbon.

Spectacular Switzerland -- A high point, literally, of this tour is the ascent by alpine train to the Jungfrau Massif, home to Europe's highest railway station at an altitude of 11,332 feet.

Bavarian Highlights -- You'll visit King Ludwig's extraordinary Neuschwanstein Castle, said to be the inspiration for Sleeping Beauty's castle, on this German getaway.

Warsaw, the Baltics & Helsinki -- Globus introduces travelers to the traditions and culture of five Baltic Sea states: Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Finland.

Athens & Continental Greece and Athens & Aegean Odyssey -- Each of these new Greek itineraries incorporates a leisurely weeklong cruise to sparkling islands like Santorini and Mykonos.
