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.

The tour operator are exceptional professional and friendly

Our guide Maria and bus driver Lucas were phenomenal! They made the trip a venture of a lifetime for me. Both were exceptional in their jobs and very friendly and professional. Maria was a wealth of knowledge and very pleasant.

Tour host/guide was completely knowledgeable about, Greek history, mythology, culture, food, travel itinerary and stray cats and dogs. Wonderful trip. Would recommend it to friends.

Our travel could have been perfect but rather our first day was cut short due to the country National holiday. In the future please let your client know if their is a holiday in the country that they are visiting. Other than that the tour was wonderful and our guide is amazing and very knowledgeable.

Our tour guide and hostess were amazing. Everyone was very hospitiable. The country is wonderful! Definitly recommend taking extra time - coming in a day earlier and staying a day later at least. There is so much to take in! We found that taking a hop on hop off open bus tour on a free day. This allows you to really see the heart of the city, like the bazaar and open market and move around better. This also is much cheaper than a taxi especially if you want to go and see the Rivera and beaches of Athens.

We fully enjoyed the trip from the beginning to the end. The staff was very professional and knowledgeable. The hotels were all very clean and nice. I would highly recommend Globus to anyone.

Very well organized trip. Everything matched our expectations.

Everything was perfection. All my questions are always answered promptly. I've booked three trips through affordabletours.com.

Tour director was wonderful and so knowledgeable. She shared her knowledge with us.

The only issue I have is that additional dinners are overprized for the value of food. We are vegans and there was not much of the choice in the food. Many other restaurants prices were much lower than the ones we paid going with the group.
