Hygiene and Safety Protocols for Cosmos Tours

Today's world has changed, but what remains certain is Cosmos' commitment to guest safety, comfort and peace-of-mind while traveling with us. To that end, Cosmos 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.

It all starts with Cosmos' Global Health & Safety Team, dedicated to ensuring that cleanliness of all operations exceeds today’s travel standards—from start to finish. The following areas address Cosmos' commitment to providing a safe and clean environment for guests.

A SAFE & WARM WELCOME

Cosmos will enact new tour check-in procedures and pre-trip health screenings to offer guests a safe start to their journey, including adherence to social distancing requirements.

BLENDING CULTURAL PROXIMITY WITH SOCIAL DISTANCE

Cosmos 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 Cosmos' 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, Cosmos will conduct regular temperature checks for both guests and team, and when necessary, masks will be worn by Cosmos' team members when with guests.

TOUCHING HEARTS, NOT HANDS

Traveling with Cosmos removes many of the “touch points” of travel, including luggage handling, check in/out, expedited entry into attractions and more. Cosmos are further reducing risk with hands-free service, meaning all self-services replaced by staff, including buffet meals replaced with table service. Cosmos will also ensure hand sanitizing is available throughout each trip, on coach and in hotels.

COMMITMENT TO CLEAN

As a part of Cosmos' commitment to clean, Cosmos is requiring enhanced cleaning procedures with hotel partners, on motorcoaches, vehicles and throughout every trip, including additional daily disinfecting procedures that go above-and-beyond already strict health and safety procedures.

PARTNERS IN DISCOVERY AND IN HEALTH

Cosmos has strict health and safety protocols, which have been in place for years, focused on ensuring all aspects of operation- from vehicles and equipment used on trip to excursions and hotel procedures. This process will continue with new, elevated health and safety checks, to maintain their promise that each touch-point on tours and cruises are considered in their commitment to guest and team member well-being.

Very, very good indeed! I was mixed up about my last night and expected to stay one more night in London. When I realized on the trip that that was the case, I couldn't change it. I was disappointed, BUT the trip was marvelous and other than that, I enjoyed it immensely! I liked the tour guide Szolt last name (?) immensely, knowledgeable and fun, and the group was great. The driver was great, the bus was comfortable. I would highly recommend this to other people. Thank you!!!!

Our Cosmos tour met all our expectations. Our guide, Patrizia, was excellent and our driver was safety conscious and very professional, especially on the often narrow European streets. Not everything you might want to see is covered by the booking, but optional excursions or free time are available to fine tune your experience. We loved the dinner and tour excursions in particular. Our tour group became very close and we have made several new friends.

Hotels were way too small, very uncomfortable. Better provision for drinking water should have been provided.

90% of all the hotels were all great except of the 2 hotels we had in Venezia, "Poppi" and Ibis Styles Central in Dijon, which we were given a room that was too tight and service elevator was too small for a group. We had to use the staircase to get to our room on the 3rd floor with our heavy luggage and no porter. Poppi hotel is old and need to upgrade, room was hot and we had to call the front desk to make the blower work.

Thanks, it was fantastic, even better than expected

I love every single little thing from Rome to Paris. Once we headed to London we were literally thrown to London. Cosmo representatives at London were rude, not approachable and made faces to one of the tourist. We didnt have a tour guide that explain to us the historical building around the area. 

The hotels were not located conveniently in town. They were always in locations way out of the center of the city. We spent hours on bus traveling from city to city. Half of the time, we were on the bus just getting to the next city. Instead of using the Chunnel, we drove to Calais and then took the ferry to Dover. I felt we wasted a lot of time just being on the bus. We could have had a day in London sightseeing instead of being on a bus and ferry if we had taken the train from Paris to London.

the first hotel in Rome was scary  like an old haunted hotel or something. but other than that, everything was nice. I enjoyed my beautiful vacation. thank you
