COSMOS LITE: à la carte touring where YOU choose more of your faves

Imagine if it was possible to get all the benefits of a guided holiday without having to pay for the inclusions that don’t really interest you.

Imagine if it was possible to get all the benefits of a guided holiday without having to pay for the inclusions that don’t really interest you.

Well that’s exactly what the new range of Cosmos Lite tours are all about!

These new Cosmos Lite tours offer all the essentials of a guided holiday, such as comfy and centrally-located accommodation, deluxe coach transportation with free Wi-Fi, free breakfast daily, longer stays in key cities, expert tour leader and driver, but – and this is an important difference – you get to build your own holiday around them.

It’s the equivalent of dining at a restaurant and choosing off the á la carte menu – you can pick and choose only what you want, spending your time (and money) on the things that matter to you.

Here are three amazing Cosmos Lite itineraries (there are eight launching in 2020, starting at $999) that are putting the ‘U’ back in touring.


Portugal Explorer – 7 days from Lisbon to Porto

Explore the best of this sun-drenched country on this week-long itinerary through vibrant Portugal. Walk the historic cobblestone lanes of the capital, Lisbon, fuelling on the city’s famous custard egg tarts and freshly-caught seafood, before listening to some traditional fado music in a cosy bar.

Travel in a super comfy coach along the sparkling Atlantic Coast via medieval Obidos and lively Coimbra before arriving in the artistic city of Porto. Spend the next two nights feasting on the region’s amazing food and, of course, sampling its famous port wine on an optional lunch and city tour.

As with all Cosmos Lite tours, travellers have access to the CosmosGO mobile app which they can use to explore a new city on their own. The app has built-in GPS maps that don’t require Wi-Fi along with tons of local recommendations on things to see, and where to eat and drink – how good!

Turn your dream of Portugal into a reality with tours from only $999 per person.


Nice to Lyon Explorer – 8 days from Nice to Lyon

A dazzling journey through the romantic French Rivera, pretty Provence with its colourful lavender fields, and the majestic foodie capital Lyon, this itinerary is the perfect introduction to France and all its glory.

Tick off the glittering city of Cannes before visiting Aix-en-Provence with its elegant charm and the medieval city of Avignon. Finish in Lyon, the gastronomic capital of France, and wander around its centre along charming cobblestone lanes and past regal gushing fountains.

As with all Cosmos Lite tours, you’re in the driver’s seat when it comes to building your own perfect holiday. Simply choose which optional extras appeal to you or just wander around on your own. Remember: your knowledgeable Tour Director (and driver) is always on hand to offer advice and recommendations on the best cafes, restaurants and attractions in town, so make use of them!

Don’t delay! Explore this glittering part of the world from $1,299 per person.


Ireland Explorer – 7 days from Limerick to Dublin

Discover the charm of Ireland’s landscape and people on this wonderous itinerary through the Emerald Isle. On this tour, you’ll have all your comfy and centrally-located accommodation (with free breaky) included as you spend nights in charming Limerick, Killarney and Dublin.

Along the way, you’ll be able to choose from a range of optional extras, such as visiting the stunning Cliffs of Moher and lively Galway, as well as the Ring of Kerry.

In Dublin, why not reserve a spot for a tour of the Guinness Storehouse so you can sample the freshest “black stuff” before checking out a show at Taylor’s Irish Cabaret? On all Cosmos Lite tours, tour days start later with 9 am departures, so you have time to sleep in!

Enjoy the flexibility and peace of mind of having all the essentials taken care of from $1,159 per person.
