To that end, Globus has established a worldwide Assurance program, with enhanced on-trip protocols and procedures, to ensure the health – and happiness – of guests throughout their travels with us.

Globus will ensure safe distances for guests throughout the journey, on coach and during excursions. This includes providing masks for guests use at any time where social proximity could be an issue as well as the possibility of reducing group sizes, if required. And wireless listening technology – including Globus' Go Beyond Devices in Europe – enables safe distances between guests and other travelers on excursions.FOCUS ON GUEST AND TEAM MEMBER HEALTH
To ensure a healthy environment for team and guests, Globus will conduct regular temperature checks for both guests and team, and when necessary, masks will be worn by Globus' team members when with guests.TOUCHING HEARTS, NOT HANDS

Globus will also ensure hand sanitizing is available throughout each trip, on coach and in hotels.COMMITMENT TO CLEAN

The tour surpassed my expectations. The pickup and drop off were on time and perfect. Jerusalem is amazing. We saw the ruins at Caesarea, CAPERNAUM and cruised on the Sea of Galilee. We went to visit the BAPTISMAL SITE at the Jordan river. The Dead Sea and Masada are breath taking. I floated in the Dead Sea briefly. People were rubbing clay on their bodys. But I did not. The hotels were clean and the food at the hotels was good. The western wall in Jerusalem was sacred and there were lot of people. The old city is incredible. I strongly recommend that every Christian should visit Jerusalem at least once.
The tour director was often unorganized, did not communicate proactively with the group and did not have a strong enough command of English to properly explain historical detail.
Due to religious reasons, we had to change the route. However, these religious holidays are known and the trip should have been planned accordingly. The hotel Dan Panorama in Jerusalem was not adequate: room too small for two people, and state of place leaving much to be desired (old, some broken items, rust in the bath).
This was my second trip with Affordable Tours. My booking agent could not have been better. He was great. My biggest disappointment with the tour was the guide. Although a very nice person and extremely knowledgeable, she was many times unorganized and did not do anything to bring the "group" together. As I said her knowledge was without a doubt wonderful.
Our guide lacked in personal communication; he was abrupt, argumentive and rude at times. This may be a cultural difference but still not a very desirable characteristic. The tour itinerary was very demanding, partly because our guide chose to add part of the next days agenda to two of our days. We were told that this was because of the Sabbath. We walked 5 hrs in the old city and then went to Bethlehem (scheduled for the following day) and had to walk for another two hrs. This was in 90 degree weather too. The other thing that was less than desirable was the coach...no place to put bottles, cameras, snacks on seat backs; there was no WC for emergencies.
We had a wonderful trip and the itinerary covered a lot of sights!!
