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.

Question: Is this a motor coach or rail tour?
Question: We would like to send our pastor and his wife on a tour of Switzerland in May of 2020. If you have the dates for that month please let me know the dates and I will request a quote.
Question: how many persons on a tour? are the tours all by motorcoach or is there train travel?
Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?
Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?
This was my 5th tour with Globus. All were excellent and looking forward for another by Globus when time permits. I have recommended my friends about Globus Tours to try one.
The tour provides a very nice overview of Switzerland. It moves along fairly quickly, but in most cities there is free time to explore independently. Time on the coach is not excessive and the scenery makes that time well spent. The optional gondola excursion in Zermatt delivers good value for the price. Zurich is only briefly covered, but we stayed 2 pre-nights and had fun exploring on our own making use of the public transportation system. The Zurich hotel is the best we have ever stayed in on a Globus tour (very spacious, comfortable, modern rooms and extensive breakfast options) and although it is in a non-central business area it is very convenient to tram or train and the neighborhood is less hectic with good food choices a few blocks away.
This trip was awesome!! The tour guide was great!!
The best of Switzerland exceeded our expectations in every area. Every place was well chosen, and timing was efficient. We beat the crowds and always felt that we had a great itinerary and schedule. Our guide, Valeria was exceptionally knowledgeable, but also compassionate, funny and quick witted. We would love to travel with her again! Thank you!
The tour was wonderful. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and our driver was amazing, getting us through the narrowest spots with ease. Itinerary gave a perfect blend of structured and free time. Will book with Globus and Affordable Tours again soon.
We only agree because the experience exceeded our expectations. They didn't just meet them.
FANTASTIC TRIP! Loved almost everything about it except one hotel in Lugano did NOT have air conditioning or a fan!
The trip was spectacular. Globus always does a great job and never disappoints.
Steve does a great job!
Riley and Affordable Tours did a great job. Globus did not. We have taken 5 previous Globus Tours. Our tour guide was the worst we have ever had. Some of our accommodations were great while others were horrible.
Wonderful sites, excellent group (small, 22), great meals!
the only thing that I would like to see changed is to have all travelers with a group have a name tag or wear something around their necks so we could know who our traveling companions are.
This tour was absolutely amazing! The only thing I would change would be the hotel in St Moritz, the hotel staff is rude and makes you feel rushed, but other than that everything was fantastic!
Cheap Dinners 3 out of 4 nights "Chicken" some fake. Denied breakfast eggs ordered, "Globus doesn't allow" in Zermatt hotel. St. Moritz, a waste of time, no tour other than the optional one that got cancelled due to weather. Lack of an included tour each day. Meat loaf lunch at farm stop was compressed sliced "meat" that you needed a knife to cut. Not my mothers meatload! Got an email from Globus offering a $100 credit p/p as our trip reward for next time. NEVER EVER AGAIN WITH GLOBUS!!! Gate 1 for less and better food. John
Very enjoyable tour. The tour director and driver were very pleasant and knowledgeable and were genuinely concerned about your well being.
The pace of the trip was a bit busy for us. Next time, we'll look for a "leisurely" pace tour.
We expected a tour with a leisurely pace. Cannot remember if advertised as such anymore. Incredibly rushed pace and very long days. Tiring. Enjoyed but would not do again.
Our tour director and driver was very attentive and made sure we had a good time. Driver was very skill driving over mountain passes and all the curves and bends keeping us safe. Director always kept us up to date with daily info. We had a wonderful time.
We provided to our guide, Valery, our impression of the trip as follows: It was a great trip, one our best. Valery was a real joy with her sense of humor, her organizational skills, and her knowledge of all we surveyed. We could not have been more pleased with her - and with our driver, Franco who drove splendidly and had a great attitude.
Very nice tour of Switzerland offered by Globus.
Excellent tour director, very energetic and helpful. Always ready to help and answer any questions. The overall tour was very good with well thought out points of interest.
Native Tour director will enhance learning and travel experience. This trip is good but if the duration is longer and include visiting important places like Geneva and Basel, it will be much better. This trip needs to improve providing historical and cultural experience. City walk Tour was too short and was done too quickly.
Globus is a great choice.
This was our first escorted tour and first trip to Europe. Everything could not have been more perfect. Affordable Tours did a great job helping me to get this booked and all my questions answered. Ireland next!
Everyone from the booking agent, the tour guide and the tour bus driver were total professionals.. All great people. Would book another trip. Thanks so much.
I purchased the Optional Excursions from Globus. One particular one (Trummelbach Falls) failed to indicate that it was a SUPER STRENUOUS ativity with up to 700 steps. I am really disappointed in Globus and would not book any optional excursions in advance, if I ever go with them again. As a Senior, I rely on their accurate descriptions.
Two European tours now with Globus and both have been extremely good. Guides and drivers are excellent.
Traveling to Zermatt and seeing the Matterhorn is such an overwhelming experience and it cannot be photographed, nor adequately described. It is an experience of a lifetime...!
Excellent arrangements and assistance except last minute hotel change by Globus Tour. Overall we are satisfied with your service.
We have taken very few bus tours so don't have a lot to compare. The hotel in St. Merits was below our expectations.
I wouldn't book the carriage ride again. It wasn't worth the money paid. The excursion in Bella was ok, but I wouldn't do it again. Breakfasts were cold, even the first ones at 6:00 am. Tour director and bus driver were excellent.
This was a very expensive but beautiful vacation. I think the customer should be cautioned in advance that Switzerland is quite expensive!!! Also, most of the best venues cost extra on this trip. The tour director was knowledgeable. The driver was exceptional in terms of skill/safety driving in the mountains.The breakfasts included were very good. I probably could have gone without some of the included dinners and if had the option would have preferred one of the additional side trips included instead. Some of the hotel locations were in noisy areas and we should have been told in advance that many hotels in Switzerland do not have air conditioning.
Our tour guide was exceptional. We have done 6 Globus Tours, this was not my favorite, maybe least favorite.
Great way to see most of Switzerland in a short time. Hotel Laudinella in St. Moritz was a disappointment. Better quality nametags would have been helpful also showing traveler's homes. If the fellow travelers would agree, a list of travelers with contact info could be given out to everyone. This would help to bring the group together more easily. The tour director and driver were excellent in all respects. Tour director was very knowledgeable.
This was the absolutely best trip that I have ever taken! From the accommodations to the meals to the attractions to the driver and guide...the best! Thank you!
This trip to Switzerland was my fourth tour through Globus and I will be going on a Globus tour to Italy in October.
This was a wonderful tour and we felt we received good hotels, food, and destinations for the money.
The Best of Switzerland tour was excellent and met my expectations. The Tour Director was excellent. My only complaint is that the hotel rooms in Montreaux and Lucerne were unclean and not air conditioned ... the weather was hot. For the price paid, hotels should be upgraded.
This was our 2nd tour thru Affordable Tours and we have been happy with the service on both.
I had a fabulous time and the driver and tour guide were excellent! I would highly recommend everything about the trip! :)
I believe that our experience with Globus was unique, because of the tour director. She was "exceptional". Otherwise, the tour would have been just "OK".
GLOBUS IS RELIABLE COMPANY. THE TRIP EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS. THE TOUR DIRECTOR WAS GREAT - PRECISE, ORGANIZED, PROFESSIONAL, CARING AND KNOWLEDGEABLE. IT WAS AN INTENSE TOUR AS WE HAVE TO MOVE CONSTANTLY, BUT THE WALKING AND CLIMBING THE ALPS WAS A GOOD CARDIO WORKOUT. THIS IS MY FIRST TIME TO USE AFFORDABLETOURS.COM. I FIND IT RELIABLE. THAT'S ALL YOU NEED FROM A CLIENT'S PERSPECTIVE. IF A COMPANY IS RELIABLE A CLIENT WILL USE THE SAME SERVICES AGAIN AS MOST CLIENTS LIKE FAMILIARITY. MY EXPECTATIONS WERE MET.
