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

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

We liked the driver and the guide, but bus trips make my wife uncomfortable and we considered cancelling at the last minute. My wife got motion sickness on the train and the crew had no medication for her. I had to get off the train and walk to a drug store. We went to Canada mostly for the scenery. The ride to Jasper had very little scenery worth seeing. The food was good but the room was not comfortable. The crew was nice and helpful. Most of the options were outrageously expensive.
One issue we had was we were 6.5-7 hours late getting into Jasper from the VIA train. We had "brunch" that day at 11am and were not offered any food the later we got. We were supposed to get in at 1pm (hence brunch) but did not arrive until 7:30 pm. No dinner was offered. Another issue was having 4 hours in Toronto with no where to go while some on our tour went to the CN dinner. Because we did not have an information get together upon our arrival, we were not aware of this.
This tour was fantastic! The value for the money was great. The train experience is one I will always remember. I normally vacation in Europe but Canada was beautiful and a great adventure!
