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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.

Fabulous Globus tour of National Parks! Exceeded our expectations. The tour guide and driver were exceptional and the sights and excursions were too.

Our accommodations were very nice, our coach driver was excellent, and our tour director was excellent also. We couldn't have asked for a better staff!! They took care of our group the entire tour and we were VERY satisfied with their services.

Our tour guide Sven is extremely professional, well organized and very knowledgeable. Our motor coach driver is very courteous and skillful

Excellent trip. Have already recommended it to friends.

Despite the Covid restrictions in the National Parks (specifically the overnight stays in Yellowstone), I feel Globus did a good job in providing meals as best they could. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable in all areas of the tour and knew 99% of the answers when asked a varied number of questions by the guests.

Trip was exactly as described and tour director and bus driver were awesome.

Our trip to the western parks was well planned and executed, fairly priced and operated with consummate, professional staff. Our guide and driver were excellent. They provided relevant information in both personal and personable way. Problems were minimal and always handled deftly and with care. Although we found the large number (43) of tour members more than we would have preferred, everyone was considerate about meeting the group schedule. Even political and cultural biases were thoughtfully kept quiet. All in all, it was a trip that we would recommend to friends.

it was a beautiful trip. lots to see, however it was a little too fast paced for us. Should have been about 12 days

Our tour director Janice and driver Frenchy went above and beyond to ensure everyone got to see as much as possible. We saw many more things in addition to what was listed on the itinerary. They were positive and professional always. I would travel with them again. The pace was perfect.

This vacation far exceeded all of my expectations. This was truly a vacation of a lifetime and it did not disappoint. Globus provided a wonderful tour director who was informative, fun and highly entertaining. I would certainly use them in the future for my own trips and definitely recommend them to others to consider.

We had a very good trip. Unfortunately the mid/late May weather did not cooperate. The unanticipated El Nino weather pattern still persisted, bringing unseasonable cold, rainy, snowy conditions. Mount Rushmore and the Crazy Horse memorial were obscured by fog. But our Globus tour director changed the itinerary to take us back for multiple attempts for a better view. He also provided other minor changes that benefited us throughout the trip. The hotels were very nice to excellent except for one that is an old historic lodge in Yellowstone. Although the plumbing and rooms were antique the included meal at the Old Faithful Inn (order anything on the menu) was fantastic! Throughout the trip we saw beautiful scenery and quite a bit of wildlife. The snow added to the beauty. It was definitely a worthwhile adventure. The weather finally cooperated our last day, in Salt Lake City, and our time there was most enjoyable.

Very dissatisfied with two of the places that we stayed. One was at Yellowstone Mammoth Hot Springs. We were supposed to be staying at the lodge but it was being renovated and had to stay in cramped cabins. Since there are no lights allowed in the park, it was difficult for us to find our way back to our cabin after dinner as it was dark by then. Also, I do not like hotels with outside entry to rooms. We were unable to place our luggage outside the room the next morning as there is always a possibility that someone could steal them.

Our trip was wonderful. Everything was professionally executed. All details were organized and easy to follow. Our tour director was knowledgeable and both informative and personable. I loved it.

They should offer a night tour of Mt. Rushmore as they honor all past and present Military and retire the flag for that day each night.

The tour director was knowledge, organized and friendly. She showed the video clips, in the bus, of the coming destination, which helped understand the background history of these destinations. Well conducted tour.

The trip was wonderful. We were well informed by our tour guide. Our drive was excellent. Everyone had a great time.

Tour Director and Bus Driver were excellent. Fantastic scenery. Hotels were as expected. Only issue was that we went at end of the season, so limited dining services in Yellowstone due to staff shortages, long lines for meals (45 minutes).

The itinerary accurately described the trip - the tour director and driver were a great team, providing plenty of facts and interesting side stories to add to the tour - our particular tour had some weather issues that were handled perfectly by the guide and drier to give us all the feeling we were all in this together and did their best to address and & all comcerns and make the best of the situation.

There was a lot of free time on the tour that could have been better used.

Globus National Park Tour was wonderful! The Tour Director and the Bus Driver were very professional, personable and very caring; experts in every way...making for a most enjoyable tour-adventure.

This was a wonderful trip. We have used Globus many times and they are very reliable and top notch.

We were very happy with all aspects of our trip.

I had Globus tour started on July 6, 2017. I have been touring with Globus 3 or 4 Times. Great tours, very organized, tour directors knowlageble and intelligent.

Very nice tour. We had a great escort and great driver.

This was my husband and I's 6th Globus tour (US National Parks: Rapid City SD to Salt Lake City UT) and was as excellent and suited to our needs as all previous trips: 10 days or less; up early and on the go almost nonstop; perfect combination of educational, scenic, nature, historical, cultural, free time; covered many cities, one or two nights maximum in each place; highly knowledgeable and wonderfully organized tour director; friendly, prompt and respectful fellow bus travelers. Meals were adequate to excellent - only disappointment was some of the hotel breakfast buffets; hotel accommodations were always clean and comfortable, a couple ritzier and more luxurious. Every Globus trip, including this one, has exceeded our expectations, and we will likely never use another tour company.

Excellent tour director & driver. Hotel locations are so convenient for viewing the attractions on the park.

Our tour America's National Parks was more than expected. The parks visited and the accommodations were wonderful. If you have not been to these National Parks, there is no way to imagine their splendor. Our tour guide was knowledgable and more than willing to be of service. Our driver was the best there could be.

This trip exceeded our expectations. The accomodations, food, staff we top notch. I would highly recommend this trip!

This was an absolutely terrific tour....in every way!

This trip exceeded all of our expectations.

Globus had superior guide and bus driver. All hotels were above and appro for each destination

The tour director added some things that were not included in the original tour description and provided a detailed hard copy of each days activities. One of the hotels was not in the best condition.

I have already recommended this trip to a friend. Thanks for helping.

The trip was wonderful and exceeded our expectations, especially the accommodations. The agent was great to work with. Good job!!!

We were very happy with the Tour Director and the Driver.

The trip we booked was by far very enjoyable and we both feel we received the best price for the guided tour, bus service and accomodations. Our tour director from Globus was excellent and handled all our personal needs on the trip. All of our accomodations were excellent and comfortable. I doubt we could have seen as much as we did in those ten days if we had gone on our own and that is the reason we chose to do a guided tour with Globus.

Loved the tour. Our Tour Guide was wonderful and very knowledgeable. We saw a lot of wild life in Yellowstone and all of our questions were answered. We would book another trip with Globus thru you. Thanks for a great trip!!!!!

The accomodations at Mammoth Hot Springs were deplorable. Would never stay there again.
