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.

Kasia was the best tour guide I've had on any trip!! She made the experience amazing with her stories, jokes and making sure we were always on time and knew where we were hoping. Giovanni was an amazing driver!!! No clue how he manages that traffic and small streets without any issues. Best trip yet!!!! I am hoping to get them both for another trip again.

We visited 7 countries to get a taste of Europe and figure out where to go back and visit. We have mixed feelings about the trip. Mainly, the disappointment comes from the fact that Paris is specifically mentioned in the name of the tour however our time in Paris was extremely limited, a few hours at most, and we did not even get to see the Eiffel tower up close. Here is our review for the Seven Countries, Venice & Paris trip we just completed: We booked this tour through Affordabletours.com because the price was reasonable. We wanted to experience a taste of multiple European countries to see which ones we would like to go back and visit for a longer vacation in the future. This trip pretty much gave us what we wanted and expected. EXCEPT for Paris. Paris should NOT be listed in the title of this vacation package. Time in Paris was so very limited that it was a HUGE disappointment! By the time you reach Paris, on the very last day of your tour, there is no real time to spend seeing any of the sites. Upon arrival, we had about 2 hours of free time to eat lunch, walk to Notre Dame for photos and purchase souvenirs. The walk to Notre Dame took most of that time, so shopping was pretty much just grab something to say you shopped in Paris. They offered a city tour (that also included a farewell dinner), which we signed up for at an extra cost of $67 per person ($134 as a couple), but it was so fast that you barely had time to take any photos of the monuments that were pointed out. Most of the photos had to be taken through the bus window, which was difficult if you were on the opposite side of the coach from the attraction that you wanted to photograph. There were round seat belt warning signs stuck in the middle of the windows, so when you tried to take a photo across the aisle, it was impossible to avoid the sticker in your frame. Plus, the USB ports were in the ceiling of the bus, so you also had other passenger's charging cables in your photos. There were only 2 stops during this city tour, one at the Arc de Triumph, which did allow for some good photos and the other was several blocks from the Eiffel Tower. As you can imagine, the photos were poor and the disappointment was HUGE. My first time in Paris and NO photos AT the Eiffel Tower! Overall this was a great trip for the cost and provided exactly what we wanted, except for feeling shortchanged Paris. I would suggest that they add another day to the tour so that you get to spend a reasonable amount of time in this beautiful city. Especially since Paris is listed in the title of the tour! That felt misleading. If you choose this tour and have the ability to stay an extra day in Paris, I would STRONGLY recommend that you do. We went a day early and spent an extra day in London, which was GREAT, but I wish we had also booked an extra day in Paris. The farewell dinner was wonderful. Saying goodbye to newly made friends, good food and music. I have seen in many of the reviews that past travelers have complained about the amount of time spent on the bus. You do spend time riding, but how else would you be able to experience 7 countries in this short amount of time? Our tour guide, Britt, was GREAT! She was very knowledgeable, funny and charming. The driver of the coach was Hank. He did a great job in getting us across 7 countries safely and handling our luggage in and out of the coach at overnight hotel stops. The only real overnight stop/luggage issue was that some of the hotels did not have porters for the luggage and you had to take your own luggage to the room. As you can imagine, with 50 people, each with 2 bags, all trying to get on an elevator (several times there was only one or at most 2) at the same time to go to their rooms.. well, it got a little chaotic at times. The hotels were mostly good. They were smaller than what we are accustomed to in the US, but that was to be expected. However, there was one room, in Frankfurt Germany, that was pretty ridiculously small. As in your knees touched the bathroom wall when you were on the toilet and you had to open the shower door to lean over to wash your feet or shave your legs! But hey it was only one night! WHAT WE DID ALONG the WAY: We booked a full day city tour of London through Viator, which was wonderful. Next we went to Brussels on the EuroStar, a bullet trainand that was amazing beautiful and ohhhhh the chocolates in Austria, and Switzerland! We made a stop in Boppard Germany and took a river cruise on the Rhine, which was beautiful. We made a stop in Rothenburg Germany. It was a beautiful, picturesque place for shopping and photos. We enjoyed the leisure time there. After spending the night in Frankfurt, we drove through a gorgeous mountain pass to Innsbruck Austria where we visited the Swarovski Crystal Museum. That was great! Next was Venice, which was not a favorite of mine, but we did do a gondola ride what else are you going to do in Venice, right? The gondola ride stated that we would be serenaded, which consisted of a guy in a different boat from us and we had to try to hear from behind. In my opinion, it was very overpriced for what you actually got. Also, it's worth noting that getting in and out of the Gondola is a little challenging. Maybe you should consider skipping this excursion if you are mobility impaired at all in any way. One lady on our tour fell getting out of the gondola and really hurt her knee. It made the rest of the trip difficult and painful for her. At very least, there should have been more assistance provided to her for getting in and out of the vessel. We made a stop in Verona Italy that was really nice! Lots of shopping available, saw a beautiful coliseum and wonderful food! Next was Lucerne Switzerland ABSOLUTELY amazing! Yes, I will return! I highly recommend purchasing the Ascent up Mount Stanserhorn in Switzerland! It was $78, but worth EVERY penny! The views were breathtaking! From Switzerland, there was a lot of time spent in transport on our way to Paris. We stopped in Dijon to spend the night. It was too late for any site seeing, so we took a walk, found a nice little restaurant across the street, had dinner and went back to the hotel. The next morning we drove to Paris, a four hour drive (with a restroom stop along the way) and that is where the big disappointment was. That part of the trip needs to be re-examined to make it better. With the distance between Lucerne and Paris, an additional day is the only solution that I see. If you want to cover a lot of territory in one trip, this package is great! If you do not want to spend vacation time fast paced and moving from place to place every day, you might consider something with less miles to cover. We loved it¦ well, everything except the shortchange in Paris!!!

Fast pace trip late to bed early to rise

Tula was great in helping us have the best trip. She was very knowledgeable and efficient. We plan on calling her for our next trip.

The best trip we've had so far! I think I can speak for the group based on our collective reaction - we had a en excellent driver, Massimo, and an excellent tour Director, Budi. Massimo was courteous, accommodating, went the "extra mile" for the group's enjoyment. Our Tour director was fluent in English , Flemish, German, Italian, and French, and gave excellent commentaries and very helpful tips along the way. We had so much fun! Would do it again in a heartbeat...different location, of course! We purchased 3 extra excursions: The Gondola ride in Venice, Mt Stanserhorn in Switzerland, and the Cosmos Farewell dinner and an orientation drive in Paris. I highly recommend those 3 excursions! In the summit of Mt Stanserhorn, there's a restaurant...a must try is the Alpler Magrone (good for 2 but actually good for 4 people), The farewell dinner was not just a 4 course French dinner, it was a PARTY!!!!

I have good experiences with the director and the Driver very great job The Ramada Hotel was not the best place at all

We thoroughly enjoyed this vacation with COSMOS. The coach driver and tour director was very knowledgeable, professional, courteous and friendly. I will definitely book another vacation with COSMOS in the future.

Derek kept me well-informed. As a first-timer, I thought his help was very valuable.

I really enjoyed my trip. You planned for most of the main tourist attractions to be seen in each country and Szolt was a great tour guide.

Amazing itinerary, great transportation/accomodations and tour guide. Wonderful experience. Everything was well-coordinated and comfortable. Thank you.

Britt, our tour guide, was absolutely fabulous! Antonio, our driver, was great too!

The tour was well planned out and executed overall. I would have wanted more information as to what each destination's itinerary was planned to be (i.e. where we plan to go/see/do). Personally I feel the cities on the itinerary were too far apart, requiring far too much driving daily (probably averaging about 6 hours per day and with rest breaks this reaches probably 7-8 hours in transit daily). I was hoping to have at least a few hours continuously to explore each city rather than having short bouts to walk around small areas that I didn't know anything about. Dijon ended up being just for the overnight stay; however the food options in the area around the hotel were fantastic. All hotels and coach exceeded my expectations and were a pleasant surprise. Overall, if I were to book a trip of this format again, i would definitely research the estimated travel time between destination cities and request more information as to what was planned for each city.

Another thing was that we didn't even go to Austria it was just driving across on freeway and also boat ride to romantic river wasn't done

Staff (Linda) very knowledgeable, helpful, organized everything perfectly. They do all the planning and have clout to get best deals. Great value, great trip. Would book with Affordable Tours & Cosmos again.

Travelers with disability should be warn that the tour is fast paced and tour bus have stairs and most excusions involved walking and some with no wheelchair access.

I had a wonderful experience with Affordable Tours.com. The travel consultant was outstanding. The tour director was exceptional. She was very knowledgeable. She was a great leader. She was respectful and patient. She did her best to make sure everybody was happy. The driver was very careful and punctual. If I ever tour again, I would want to have them both as my tour director and driver.

This was a once in a lifetime experience with my daughter and granddaughters. A wonderful tour and tour and it gave the next-generation the same travel bug!

It was a whirlwind trip/travel covering all seven countries in 10 days. Overall, the experience was great even if it was very tiring to be checking in and out different hotels/countries everyday. My travel companion/friend encountered a problem in a Dijon, France hotel when she started itching with some kind of insect bites during the night. We noted it down on the comment form and informed the travel agency.

The trip itinerary described a trip down the romantic road in Germany. We stayed on the highway and didn't go through the little towns as the description would lead you to believe. We sat in traffic on the highway, so going through the little towns would have been a better choice.

Hotel locations were not to my liking. Several hotels did not provide luggage portage service. Booklets were not sent to us, we had to print travel information at home (25 pages),. Very cumbersome to travel with.

We had a great time with the European seven countries group tour. It was fast paced but so much fun. We saw and took photos of all the beautiful places in each stops.

We really enjoyed the tour. Some of the accommodations were ok. One of the hotels did not provide Wi-Fi.
