Details Done. Your Job... Fun. 

One of the greatest things about a Cosmos escorted tour is the peace of mind it provides. We take care of all the details and include transportation, hotels, professional Tour Directors, sightseeing with knowledgeable Local Guides, and even occasional meals—so you can immerse yourself fully in your travel experience! With Cosmos, you enjoy the benefits and convenience of escorted travel, ample free time to explore your destination the way you want, and longer stays in key cities so that you can immerse yourself in the local culture. You can even personalize your vacation with a great choice of optional activities. Start packing and let Cosmos turn your travel dreams into reality! 


    transportation icon Spectacular train rides, breathtaking cable-car ascents, cruise ships, scenic day ferries, private first-class motorcoaches (most with free Wi-Fi)—Cosmos offers a wonderful variety of transportation for a memorable travel experience. And with Cosmos, you never have to worry about getting to the ferry on time, buying tickets for the train, or waiting in long lines to take the cable car. Just sit back and enjoy the ride! Each itinerary lists daily travel distances in kilometers and miles, so you’ll see just how close each country and destination are to each other.


    cosmos meals icon When it comes to meals, Cosmos strikes a perfect balance. We include some meals (on most holidays) to save you time and money, yet we also leave enough free time so you can sample gastronomic delights on your own. See individual itinerary pages for specifics about which meals are included on your vacation.
