A forward-thinking young man named Antonio Mantegazza started it all back in 1928, when he purchased a rowboat to transport visitors across Lake Lugano in Switzerland. Big things come from small beginnings and as Antonio grew his business our sister company Globus was born, and from that came Cosmos in 1961.
Across the decades there were some questionable brochure covers as well as fashion choices, but most of all there were fantastic holidays at great prices. And while we’ve ditched the flares and polo necks, we’re still determined to give you superb escorted holidays at the best value. We’re still owned by the same family all these years later, genuinely caring about our customers and believing in the highest standards of service.
We travel across the entire globe – from the depths of Peru to the heights of New York, and the jungles of Thailand to the cosmopolitan streets of Milan. Bustling cities, jaw-dropping scenery, humbling local cultures and toe-tapping rhythms… we have a tour to suit everyone.
