No matter where you travel, our global network of travel experts has you ready to reconnect.

With exceptional health and safety protocols and on-trip contingency plans for unexpected surprises, Globus travelers see more of the world with more peace of mind.

A SAFE & WARM WELCOME

Globus will conduct tour check-in procedures and pre-trip health screenings to offer guests a safe start and peace of mind throughout the journey. This includes proof of vaccination for all guests.

BLENDING CULTURAL PROXIMITY WITH SOCIAL DISTANCE

There may be times on tour or on the motorcoach when social distancing is required. We will take care in assuring any local guidelines are followed in a safe and comfortable way for our guests. For any cases where masks are required due to local guidelines, we ask that guests bring their own approved N95 (FFP2) masks for their own comfort and safety. Our wireless listening technology enables safe distances between our guests and other travelers during excursions.

FOCUS ON GUEST AND TEAM MEMBER HEALTH

To ensure a healthy environment for each of our guests and our team, our Tour Directors, Local Hosts, and motorcoach drivers are fully vaccinated, and Globus is also requiring that all travelers are fully vaccinated before joining the trips. Additionally, regular guest checks are conducted, and, when required by local guidelines, masks will be worn by our guests and by our team when accompanying guests. In all other cases, masks are optional for 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.

Fantastic, amazing tour of Israel. We also went into Palestine to visit Bethlehem. Our tour guide, Jacob, was A1 excellent.

The 'Journey Through the Holy land' tour was great.

The Tour Director assigned to our Tour, locked of kindness, patience, would not answer our questions as we wanted to ge to know the land of Israel, History, tec. he was very short, in two occasions left us alone, on our own, only said " I will meet you at the bus in 45 Minutes. I've been in several tours before, one with Globus- never had an experience like this,

An enriching spiritual experience everybody should take part of. the tour provides enlightenment on the history of Christianity and brings one closer relationship with the Creator.

The tour guide was inefficient and careless. Several times each day he requested travelers to volunteer to take a head count or collect money for an additional trip, and to report on which travelers returned head phones and chargers. His directions for meeting places and times were given and then changed and sometimes changed again. The members of the tours were herded into restaurants for luncheons at which two meal choices were offered at a fixed price of $14 or $25. The hotel rooms in Tel Aviv and particularly in Jerusalem were not well cleaned. There were so many smudges and dirty spots on the glass in the bedroom that I used paper napkins before I placed anything on it. On the whole I found the tour disappointing and tedious.

Israel trip was fantastic. I learned a great deal of history and present day struggles. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, kind and patient. On the negative, the food choices were not exceptional and the days were extremely long with a great deal of walking on cobblestone streets. I would recommend stating the level of activity on your web site. Overall it was well worth it!

My experience in this tour is more there I expect places we did where amazing interesting and beautiful the tour director was the best on his knowledge and the love and passion for his country was something special the service all around was very good .I love this trip very much

It was a fact-filled experience but tiring.

The trip was a wonderful experience. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. Israel was safe and most interesting and moving.

The Itinerary was great as there is so much to see in the Holy Land. The Globus tour guide wasn't the best for this tour however.

better lunches with options are needed. also air conditioning in hotel was needed.

Aside from a few items I gave as feedback to Globus about the hotel in Tiberius and the recommended store for shopping in Bethlehem, everything was excellent.

This was my first trip with Globus booked through Affordable Tours. I was very satisfied with the services provided. The communication was flawless, no hidden prices, no "surprises". The schedule was exactly as presented in the package.

Globus was simply wonderful. The tour was everything that I could have asked for and much, much more. I attribute this to my tour guide and the marvelous people who shared the tour with me. This was expected as I have travelled with Globus before and have been very pleased with them each time. In fact, when I went to Affordable Tours, I requested Globus.

we loved the trip. I feel it was a good price.

No libation at welcome gathering hosted by tour director. The optional Light Show and Middle Eastern Dinner held May 2 was below Globus standards. The Light Show was fine but the dinner that consisted of a salad, beef or chicken kebob, a small slice of watermelon, and Turkish coffee with no music or entertained was a rip- off. The Sabbath dinner at the hotel was above expectations. The farewell dinner with a single glass of wine and below average food was below Globus standard. The item that really irked me was no coffee with the meal. You were asked to go a lower floor for coffee.

The whole experience was ~~as smooth and silk~~ and a lot of great memories and just plain fun.  I was very pleased with whole experience
