History Founded by a man named Antonio Mantegazza more than 80 years ago when a young man purchased a rowboat to transport visitors across Lake Lugano, Switzerland. Rowboats grew to motorboats, then moved to land with a taxi service and coach buses. Through the 1930’s, this company grew to a fleet of 12 coaches, operating local tours for European tourists in Switzerland. Business remained strong, and after a hiatus during World War II, Antonio acquired two other competing coach companies and grew his fleet to 33 coaches. As business grew through the 1950’s, so did the company’s scope. The Globus portfolio had expanded from Switzerland and Italy to the French Riviera, Scandinavia, Holland, Belgium and England. Then in the 80’s, Globus truly became worldwide, selling in Australia, New Zealand and Canada. Destinations expanded, too, adding Africa, the South Pacific and Asia to its array of vacations in Europe, North and South America. Today, the Globus family of brands is a global company reaching every corner of the world, yet the Globus family of brands is marketed and operated by a network of more than 32 offices around the world, serviced by a group of more than 5,000 professionals. Combined, Globus, Cosmos, Monograms and Avalon Waterways carry over 500,000 passengers a year, making the organization the leading operator of guided vacations worldwide.

What the company sells Globus offers their clients a great deal of accommodations, excursions, organizing seminars, conferences, village tourism, transfers, rent a car and a lot of other services. Also, they offer a big spectrum of excursions in some of the world dream destinations. I think one of there strong points is that the company's prices and costs are very competitive. It keeps there competition on there toes. I think one of there weak points are how many offices they have here in Toronto, If they had more offices I think they might even get more business.
