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.

Linh was very helpful and answered my questions immediately. I would definitely recommend affordable tours and Linh.

We were completely satisfied with our tour with Globus.

I really enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide was excellent and shared lots of facts with us about Norway and Norwegians. The hotels and food were amazing. I would recommend anyone to take this trip or trip to Norway!

Outstanding tour guide and driver...well planned.

Enjoyed the trip and everything was as advertised. would have liked to spend more time in Bergen and perhaps less time in Loen.

The tour far exceeded my expectations. The tour director was great and very helpful in dealing with the damage to my suitcase by a hotel porter.

Norway is a beautiful country. The scenery is breathtaking. The tour by Globus was superior in many ways. The tour director, coach driver, and hotels were top notch.

three of the hotels did not make it to the 4 star category, no coffee, no ice, no heat or A/C

The tour was great! The only thing that was bad was our 5 hour wait for a connection on our way home in Chicago. We had been traveling for 24 hours and this wait was really hard. It may have been united airlines fault.

1. Some hotels were inferior in quality to the others. They should be rated standard, not first class. Examples are the hotels in Lillehammer, Loen, and Stalheim. 2. The farewell dinner should be held in a separate restaurant. Just having another buffet dinner is nothing special and is anti-climactic. Globus used to do better.

Our trip to Norway far exceeded my expectations. Our guide was very knowledgeable and professional. I would travel with him again! Our bus driver was awesome. He was all business when driving and did a great job navigating us through the twisting turning narrow roads. As well as keeping us out of the ditches. Our bus was always clean (very clean) and comfortable. Rooms were all very nice, clean and comfortable. Food was mostly buffet during lunch and dinner, it was all very good with some local flavors as well.

A great job was done by our agent, she was a very big help to us in making the decision for this trip. I think the Bergen area should have been a driving tour, the cobblestones made walking difficult and we only got to see the area around our hotel, leaving us to find our way during "free time".

The trip ,scenic Norway totally lived up to the word scenic. It was a bus trip that had enough ferry rides to balance the scency. It included good hotels in small ,towns.

Only problems were with British Airlines (which I booked) both our departure and return flights were cancelled. I don't know if others have had this problem with the airlines. Our tour guide and bus driver were both excellent!

Our tour guide in the Scenic Norway tour was great. She was helpful, knowledgable, patient and really pleasant to be with. The hotels are generally very nicely located, close to the city and sights, and food was great.

This style of trip with a group of ~40 people is not how we usually travel. We went to be with my brother. Even though the trip was great, I doubt we will do much like it again.
