Tour Itinerary

Southern California may be known for its stars, but northern California is the home of true legends. Despite the absence of paparazzi, you’ll hear countless shutters click as you cruise across shimmering Lake Tahoe, enjoy a scenic tram ride through stunning Yosemite, and coast along Monterey’s jaw-dropping 17-Mile Drive. From the hilly streets of San Francisco to the towering-tree-lined slopes of Sequoia and King Canyon National Parks, there are endless highpoints included in this nine-day tour through northern California. And low ones, too – including a visit to the Kunde Family Winery in the serene Sonoma Valley to see how their award-winning sparkling wines are made. Other stellar experiences to toast on this northern California vacation? Stargazing under the sequoias and bidding the moon goodnight in two signature stone and cedar national park lodges. Sweet dreams.

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.

Tour guide and bus driver was very good.

We had a wonderful time. Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful.

Ellie did a good job and was helpful upon request

We had 4 tours with Globus. These time we were not satisfied that much as last year tour "National Parks". Accommodations were not good in some places, specially at Yosemite Park, hotel was dirty, towels and bad sheets were disgusting, location was good, but to be in hotel room was very unpleasant. Overall Northern California tour was good, but could be great if tour director express more enthusiasm and energy, and give more and wider info. Last year we had greatest tour director who went far and beyond to make the tour unforgettable, this time not so.

Globus tours are well-organized. Lots of fun!

We booked our tour through Globus. Globus has been one of the best tour companies we have traveled. All of our trips have been domestic in the US, It includes Alaska and Hawaii. The tour directors/guides are very knowledgeable and helpful. We pick our tours based upon areas we have not seen and the content of those tours. The tours are packed with key areas of interest.

this tour exceeded our expectations in every way - quality of: accommodations, meals provided, tour leader, bus driver and fellow tour companions. The tour itself was well paced and included the sites we wanted to see. A wonderful experience!

We had a great time on this trip. Our tour guide was exceptionaly knowledable and helpful. She also had a wonderful sense of humor and kept us all entertained.
