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

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

The two weeks in NZ with Globus went very well. It met our expectations and we were pleased with hotels, bus, drivers, tour guide, and excursions. We were just surprised by the number of long bus rides but that was because the country is so long!
Disappointed with first time Globus tour. More things went wrong than right. 4 nights we had rooms without a/c, rooms were about 80-90 degrees during the day. Fans provided covered in dust and mold. We had mostly views of parking lots/streets, three nights next to guest laundry. Hotel stays at Franz Josef glacier and Sydney were above expectations. Breakfast offered was above average, dinner below average. Based on quality of dinners, we would have preferred dinner on our own each night. Communications during tour could have been better, for example: those of us that extended our tour from New Zealand to Sydney had to track down our hotel transfer driver because he was waiting for us at the Domestic terminal and we were all told he would meet us at the International terminal since it was an International flight. It took approximately an hour and a half to track him down. Many in our tour group had taken previous Globus tours and they all agreed this tour was not up to previous Globus Tours.
