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.

Questions & Answers

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.

IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL TOUR, THE TOUR DIRECTOR AND DRIVER WERE EXTREMELY HELPFUL AND WENT BEYOND THEIR DUTIES TO HELP US. I WOULD RECOMMEND THEM BOTH TO ANYBODY. I LOVED THEIR WAY TO MAKE THE TRIP A HAPPY AND A HISTORICAL ONE. THE TOUR DIRECTOR EXPLAINED ALL THE HISTORY OF EACH AND EVERY COUNTRY IN DETAIL.

This trip met and exceeded my expectations. I knew we would be spending a lot of time on the bus, but the bus was comfortable and we made frequent rest stops which helped break up the trip. Even though we spent a very short time in each city, I felt like we saw a lot in each place, and it was enough to give you a feeling for the flavor of each city and country. I went on all the extra excursions, and Highly recommend doing that, since you see and experience much more than you would on your own during your free time. Hotels met and exceeded my expectations, and breakfast buffets were always excellent. Our guide, Ellie,was wonderful--friendly, helpful and very informative.

Needed more detail on optional events as it was difficult to determine what the experience would include

Park Inn Alexanderplatz hotel in Berlin should provide a coffee pot to customer for making coffee. Kreutzwald hotel in Tallinn needs to improve the bath room to prevent customer's foot from bumping off shower bricks above the flat area.

The hotel accommodation and breakfasts served were above our expectations. Though travel by motor coach from one country to the other takes most of the whole day, it is quite amazing to visit nine countries in 16 days.

A subtle, nuanced and invigorating visceral journey/discovery of Past constructing Present! Cathartic moments include 'See'ne of Winter Palace (You will gasp with awe when you first see it!); Berlin ( vestiges of The Wall and the dichotomy of borders vs modernity!); and Riga (a Gem, resplendent)! Tour Director and Driver are Mountains!
