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.

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

Avalon Envision was a new ship and was fantastic. I can see how Avalon is rated number one in river cruising. Our director Tamas was the best we have ever had. This based on 4 trips with Globus and 5 with Celebrity
This was our 3 rd trip with Globus via Affordable tours and have already booked another prior to leaving on the present. Our satisfaction is supreme particularly when is cmes to service by all the staff always ready to serve you and answer any questions we might have with a courteous manner.
Our trip was affected by high water, but the cruise director did an extraordinary job adjusting the itinerary. Although we missed Nuremburg, which was one of the cities we wanted to see most, we had a nice stop in Linz, and the visit to Cesky Komolov was provided for free. I do wish we would have had some input/options so that we could have possibly gotten to Nuremburg, and not spent so much time on busses going back and forth to the ship. Our biggest complaint was with the hotel in Prague. We complained about the AC three times to the desk, but nothing was ever done. We also had problems with the safe, and getting the battery replaced quickly. We had a choice of missing a paid tour, or leaving without desired jewelry, phones, etc. When the safe was finally fixed, we asked about the AC. The technician indicated it was turned off for our room, and turned it on. We finally had AC our last night. We also felt there were less staff on this cruise over the one we had last year with Avalon.
This was a wonderful trip in all respects. The places visited were even better than expected, the crew was great, the fellow passengers interesting and the food was fabulous....
Our first ever River Cruse and City tour was first class. The hotels were 5 star and very comfortable. The River boat. "Poetry" was a real treat. Staff were friendly and pleasant. The food was beyond expectation and plenty of it. We would certainly book through "Affordable Tours" again.
