NEW: Exclusive experiences for tour groups to Ijsselmeer
From VIP visits to the legendary Alkmaar cheese market to a sightseeing flight over multi-coloured seas of tulips
Mit Globus Tours entdecken Ihre Gäste den ganzen Zauber des Ijsselmeers mit seinen denkmalgeschützten Altstädten aus dem Goldenen Zeitalter und urigen Fischerdörfern.
With Globus Tours, your guests will discover the full magic of the Ijsselmeer with its old town packed with listed buildings from the Golden Age and rustic fishing villages. They will discover the regions around the largest lake in Holland, up close and with all their senses – for example, on a VIP visit to the legendary cheese market in Alkmaar with an exclusive look behind the scenes (only possible with us!), in the quaint fishing village of Volendam or during a city sightseeing trip on the e-bus around the historic port city of Hoorn. Of course Edam, the gateway to Friesland, and the dike will not go unseen.
Another absolute highlight is a visit to our three-generation family, whose passion it is to cultivate environmentally-friendly tulips. However, we can even top this! Seemingly endless, multi-coloured seas of tulips viewed from above. Our romantic tulip sightseeing flight makes many hearts leap and is truly a heavenly experience.
NEW: With green energy through the Golden Age
Environmentally-friendly city tours around beautiful Hoorn
Around 300 listed buildings line the streets of the city centre of Hoorn and tell of the glorious past in the 17th century.
The new e-buses from Globus Tours have recently been in service for city tours through the lanes and alleys of the enchanting historic port city on the Ijsselmeer.
Thanks to them, tour groups can immerse themselves in the impressive historical flair – 100% environmentally friendly, quiet, clean and plenty of driving pleasure.
NEW: Shore excursions on the River Douro
Your river cruise area is our area
Portuguese port is seductively sweet.
Und verführerisch sind auch unsere Ausflugsideen entlang des atemberaubenden Douro-Tals mit seinen spektakulären Terrassen und vielen Weltkulturerbstätten. And our excursion ideas are also seductive – along the breathtakingly spectacular Douro Valley with its terraces and the numerous world heritage sites along the way.
We will thrill your guests with, for example, port tasting in a picturesque vineyard, a Fado show or bacalhau dinner in Porto’s enchanting old town or take them on a journey through history in the world famous “golden” university city of Salamanca.
All Events Holland Services can now be booked again!
Globus Tours GmbH takes on the whole range of services
After Events Holland had to file for bankruptcy due to the corona crisis a few weeks ago, there is now some good news: Globus Tours GmbH has taken over Events Holland B.V. and integrated all the services offered by this renowned company into its portfolio. “Events Holland customers can now sit back and relax”, says Manuela van Zelst Stotz, Chief Customer Officer at Globus Tours. “They can now easily and conveniently rely on proven services of the high standard they are used to.”
Events Holland had become the market leader in North Holland for group activities in the fields of tour operations and river cruises, and had also been successful in the event sector.
The previous Managing Director of Events Holland Rob van Loon on the takeover: “I am very pleased that the services that I have successfully built up in the areas of events and tour operations since 2008 can now be continued with competence and commitment. I will be actively assisting Globus Tours in the process.” Manuela van Zelst Stotz is also very satisfied with the agreed framework: “Our long-standing cooperation with Events Holland was excellent in terms of content and extremely pleasant in terms of personal relations. Our team is looking forward to working with Rob van Loon.”
Globus Tours GmbH specialises in the design and organisation of programmes on land and events for river cruises – on the Rhine, Mosel, Main, Danube, Rhône, Saône, Seine, Douro and the Elbe – including transfer services and hotel accommodation. Thanks to their connection to the Globus Group, Globus Tours GmbH is able to round off their range of services with ship landing stages, parking services along the river, private, business and sightseeing flights, a nostalgia ship and private excursions.
The current expansion is in line with statements made by Globus Tours at the beginning of the year when the renowned river tourism expert Manuela van Zelst Stotz joined the company: in close dialogue with customers, the company is developing its range of services precisely in line with customer needs, thus making the entire Globus Group an even more attractive service partner for river boat companies and tour operators. Van Zelst Stotz comments: “Absolute customer focus is our top priority. With immediate effect, we are also there for Event Holland’s customers and business partners and will soon be in contact with them personally.”
Globus Tours is setting sail for the future with a great deal of optimism. Andreas Ernst, Chief Executive Officer at Globus Tours comments: “With the corona situation gradually being overcome and with river cruise ships being allowed to cast off once again, we are now leaving the crisis behind us. We not only believe in a great future – we will also shape it. With a fantastic team, competence and full steam ahead – that’s our motto!”
All incoming enquiries/information to Events Holland will be redirected to Globus Tours with immediate effect.
