Exclusive experiences for tour groups to Ijsselmeer

Globus Tours has conquered a new area for guests of cruise and bus companies:

the regions around the beautiful Ijsselmeer! All around the largest lake in the Netherlands, Globus Tours offers special and exclusive VIP insights, authentic experiences and traditional handicraft workshops that will make every trip unforgettable. With Globus Tours it’s even possible to book historic sailing ships, including culinary highlights and entertainment. Your guests will be talking about these highlights for a long, long time.

Globus Tours recently enriched its portfolio with excursions around the Dutch Ijsselmeer. Idyllic fishing villages and innovative port towns, picturesque dike landscapes and lively tradition characterise this lively stretch of land. The Globus Tours excursions programme makes all the special features offered by the Ijsselmeer region accessible to boat and bus tour groups in a highly unique way and also includes exclusive “hidden treasures”.
Here a few examples:

VIP adventure tour of Alkmaar cheese market – only with Globus Tours!

There is a VIP area at the legendary cheese market reserved for guests of Globus Tours. Once there, guests will enjoy an exclusive guided tour with unobstructed views of the cheese market and can also have their picture taken with the cheese carriers. The tour also leads through the weighing area – the world-famous Waaggebouw, usually closed for the general public. This VIP experience is available exclusively at Globus Tours! It has been made possible thanks to close cooperation between VVV Tourist Office Alkmaar and Globus Tours, which was sealed in September this year.

City tour around Hoorn by e-bus – go green through the Golden Age

NEW offer! With a city tour through Hoorn on one of our Globus Group electric buses, your guests will experience the magic of the Golden Age, while at the same time doing something good for the environment. The quiet e-buses in various sizes offer plenty of driving pleasure.

Visit Mr. Tulip and his magical world of tulips

Globus Tours opens the doors to truly authentic and passionate Dutch tulip growers. During a visit to the tulip farmer Mr. Tulip, your guests will be able to immerse themselves in the pure passion of the whole family. Three generations work on the farm, from son to grandmother. From bulb to blossom, tulip cultivation is explained in great detail – while Mother Tulip brews the coffee. A very special fact: Mr. Tulip cares so much about nature that he grows his tulips using environmentally-friendly methods.

Breath-taking sightseeing flight over seas of tulips

The endless fields of colourful blossoming tulips put a smile on the face of everyone who sees them. However, even more romantic is seeing the sea of flowers from above. This is made possible with Globus Tours – the offer includes sightseeing flights, for example, over the tulip fields of North Holland, which take around 30-40 minutes. An unforgettable airborne experience!
PS: Our programme includes exclusive sightseeing flights available in other destinations – for example over the Salzkammergut in Austria. Find more information at flyellow.de

Creative workshops on board the ship

Creating something yourself is a thousand times more satisfying than just watching it being done. With Globus Tours travel groups get creative while following in the footsteps of long-standing Dutch handicrafts and traditions – directly on board the vessel and under professional guidance. For example, painting clogs, Dutch-style painting on canvas or singing with a shanty choir …

An exclusive trip on a historic sailing ship

Of magnificent beauty and with all the charm of a bygone era: a trip on a historic sailing boat is particularly spectacular. Add to that the on-board catering with fresh BBQ and buffets and the guests will be ready to lend a hand themselves when “casting off” and the team building that follows seems to start as if by magic.
