Tour Itinerary

You won’t need to summon Mr. Sandman on this tour through the American West. This national parks vacation is what dreams are made of. With overnight stays in the West’s legendary lodges, you’ll saw logs within the forested wonder of the nation’s most alluring landscapes. Enjoy two nights within the timber and stone beauty of the State Game Lodge at Custer State Park, two nights under the roofs of the cozy lodges of Yellowstone National Park, and two nights swathed in the rugged elegance of Jackson Rustic Inn Creekside Resort. Additional dream sights through South Dakota and Wyoming include Mount Rushmore, Mammoth Hot Springs, and Grand Teton National Park. After visiting the Old West towns of Deadwood and Cody – and spotting the buffalo, moose, elk, and other area locals – you’ll have no reason to count sheep on this classic lodges and national parks tour.

Health and Safety Protocols for Globus Tours

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

It all starts with Globus' 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 Globus' commitment to providing a safe and clean environment for guests.

A SAFE & WARM WELCOME

Globus 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

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

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

COMMITMENT TO CLEAN

As a part of Globus' commitment to clean, Globus 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

Globus 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.

Our guide Steve couldnt have been better. Outstanding in attending to every detail of the trip, his knowledge of terrain, wildlife, and history of the places we visited was amazing. He was friendly, halpful caring and a happy delightful person that we could count in. Our driver Clay was equally outstanding.

Our tour director, Steve, was fabulous...he made this trip very special and had expert knowledge of the area....such a great trip.

I have taken many bus trips over the years (USA and overseas) and feel this trip was the best! The tour guide and bus driver were fantastic. The guide was so knowledgeable of the West, he made every day an exciting adventure. I would book a trip on their availability to be the guide. Thank you

Our tour director was great, knew a lot about Wyoming and its history. Pace of tour was very good, had some leisure time and got to see the towns we stopped in. Lodges were all very nice.

Super organized. Have taken Globus in the past and was never disappointed. Tour Directors was friendly and went out of her way to help people. Gave us so much info and helpful hints in the towns we visited. Fantastic experience.

All that we expected, although the size of the tour was a bit too large ( 44 people)

Our tour director was the best tour director we have ever had. he exceeded all our expectations.

It was a great tour. the tour director was knowledgeable and friendly. One could do as much walking as he wished. We had plenty of stops so we could get off the bus and stretch our legs or use the restrooms. Because of the variation of temperature during the day we could leave the jackets we had on in the morning in the bus in the afternoon. The downside was that in a few places the wait staff was limited and it caused a long wait to get our meals or the different courses.

The trip and sites were all as expected. However, We were disappointed with the accommodations at the State Game Lodge at Custer State Park and the food service at Mammoth Hot Springs was unusually slow.

We could not have asked for a better Tour Director or Driver. Both were very professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and accommodating. The accommodations and food was the best I have ever had on any tour. We would and will be booking with Globus through Afffordable Tours again in the near future. We would thank everyone who made our Tour a Tour of a lifetime!

Globus did a great job on our trip...the tour director and coach driver did way above and beyond expectations. Food and lodges were really great, and we enjoyed the excursions. The folks on the tour were really wonderful, and the help from Affordable Tours was super. Thanks for a fantastic experience!

We were disappointed in the stop in Deadwood. We got off our bus and on to a school bus basically for a ride around the block. Checked out the casino which was okay. Wall Drugs was just a tourist stop-would have preferred to have stayed in Badlands National Park to allow more time for exploring. Jeep tour at Custer State Park was fabulous. I know lodges are rustic but at Custer, Old Faithful, and Mammoth Springs they could have at least provided us with newer bedding and linens. In Mammoth Springs the shower was tiny. My husband is 6'4" and had a very difficult time trying to maneuver himself in there. Float trip was way over priced!! Saw some birds, but that was about it. Would never recommend it. Breakfasts were very good, however was disappointed in some of the dinners. Our guide was very thorough and informative. Felt very safe with our driver behind the wheel of our bus. All in all a good trip.

Flights ended up being different than we were originally told they would be. Pretty sure Globus selected them but we were a little surprised when we received the Globus packet.
