Committed to Your Well Being While You’re With Alexander Roberts

  • All Alexander Roberts' staff will maintain appropriate physical distancing at all times, so expect a warm and genuine greeting but not a handshake or a hug!

  • Alexander Roberts' expert guides and drivers will don face masks whenever in proximity to guests.
  • Alexander Roberts staff have been trained on Extra Care procedures – and how to respond to issues that may arise as you travel.
  • Complimentary face masks and hand sanitizer will be available in all vehicles while touring.
More Space + Extra Care While Touring
  • Larger luxury motorcoaches so each traveler will have two seats to themselves while touring.
  • Private airport transfers with a spacious luxury vehicle when you come and go for every tour
  • Regular and frequent sanitizing of all high-touch vehicle surfaces.
  • Prearranged entry for all sightseeing minimizes standing in line with other travelers.
  • Whisper Headsets for groups of 5 or more allow for proper physical distancing while sightseeing, except for certain nature activities in remote areas like the Amazon.
More Space + Extra Care While Dining
  • Alexander Roberts carefully selects restaurants to avoid crowded high-capacity venues; Alexander Roberts emphasizes fine farm-to-table dining with attentive and efficient service – and the choice to dine al fresco whenever available.
  • No large-group dining; enjoy more spacious dining settings and smaller, well-spaced tables for included meals.
  • Restaurant staff will follow the guidance of local health authorities and WHO protocols which may include facial coverings.
Extra Care at Luxury Hotels
  • Alexander Roberts' hotels are always selected for their outstanding locations, evocative ambiance, impeccable service – and cleanliness.

  • Hotel breakfasts will usually feature à la carte service and group seating will be replaced by smaller, appropriately distanced tables.
And Always... Alexander Roberts' Distinctive Style

In a Small Group of Never More than 16 Guests or on a Privately Guided Tour for just your traveling party, their experienced guides have the flexibility to adjust your sightseeing based upon local conditions – to avoid times of heaviest traffic and crowding, for example. Alexander Roberts can dine in smaller authentic restaurants, minimize the time waiting in lines, and leave a lighter footprint. You’ll learn the history and stories behind the world’s most iconic landmarks, immerse more deeply in the wonders of the natural world, and delight in genuine cultural engagement not possible in a larger group. It’s travel without a crowd.
