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.

Questions & Answers

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.

This trip could've have been rearranged a bit differently with less time in places like Verona and Assisi and more time in places like Florence and Lake Como

Excellent tour. The cities and towns we were in showed much diversity. The smaller towns were a nice break from the busy cities but I did enjoy Rome and Veince. Nice to not have to worry about driving but also your time may be limited when you would like more time at a location

I would have liked more time at Lake Como

Amazing trip!! From Nina's (customer service) help as we booked and prepared for the trip to Ingrid's (tour guide) expertise and attention to details, the trip was effortless and far beyond our overall expectations.

Thanks so much Affordable Tours....you guys were great!

First tour. Kept us moving at a pace we could not do on our own. Everything top notch and riding on the bus very comfortable

Amazing tension free tour. Very well planned and executed. Ornella was our Tour Director and we could not have asked for anything more. Me and my friends family - 4 Kids and 4 Adults travelled and we are vegetarians. Ornella made sure we got our veg food like we wanted and went over and above what is expected out of her. This is the first tour through an operator and I found my reliable partner for my travel. Excellent accommodation, great coach drivers and overall we have lot of fond memories to carry with us. The only issue is the Wifi in bus. That needs to be addressed by Global Tours.. Hi, but, when you are traveling why need a WIFI. that would be a distraction.. Thanks Ornella and Globus. Planning for the next one,, :)

My daughter and I had an amazing experience on our Italian Vista Tour. The motor coach and accommodations were excellent. Our itinerary and excursions were well planned and showed us the many sides of the country. Our tour director was exceptional!

The trip was fabulous and the guide and driver were great. Most of the hotels were good except for the one in Assisi. In my opinion, this was below what is expected of a Globus tour.

We loved this tour. We were so happy with all the destinations. The tour director was amazing and so knowledgeable. We loved it. Would definitely recommend this tour to everyone.

The Umbria & Tuscana are beautiful to visit with plenty of history and memorable places. It would be nice to have extra days like in Siena. Also the town of Pafova was like a hub to go other places. We did not have the time to explore the old town. The hotels in Rome were very well-located except Hotel Albsni.

The tour basically provided only half day sightseeing and ends in early afternoon. I don't like to pay extra for optional excursion in order to see more in each city. The optional excursions are expensive and too short and didn't worth the money. I expect a guided tour should last at least before dinner time so it provides more sightseeing opportunities. For example, we traveled hours to get to Florence and the sightseeing tour was only about 3-4 hours; then we took off on the road for hours to get to another city to join an optional tour for happy hours in Padua. We could have longer hours in Florence and get us to Padua at later time. Additionally, for those who didn't join the optional excursion, we were sent back to hotels by mid-afternoon. The tour should provide transportation for those who would like to stay behind for more sightseeing. For example, the tour director can set a meeting time and place (e.g. 8 pm at a certain eatery places) to give us a ride back to hotel. Most of the hotels are away from the major tourist attractions. It's hard for us to go back to hotels by ourselves. There were several seniors or solo travelers got stuck in hotels and wasted time that could have been used to explore the cities.

One hotel in padua was awful-old, dirty and tired.

Except for Milan hotels were not up to Globus standsrds because of location and/or amenities

This is my first experience overseas, and had reservations about tours, but it a very good experience and would recommend a tour to anyone . thanks. had a great time. Memories for a life time.

Trip met all our expectations and exceeded a similar style of trip we took two years ago with another operator.

Our tour guide and local guides were exceptional! The trip itself was a wonderful experience, but the guides really added to it! They were pleasant, extremely knowledgeable, and professional! We could not have had a better experience with Globus!

Overall, we truly enjoyed ourselves. The accommodations actually exceeded my expectations in many ways. Thank you for all the hard work you all do.
