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.

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.

Globus will also ensure hand sanitizing is available throughout each trip, on coach and in hotels.

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.

Globis is a very professional travel operator with exceptional tour directors. In our experience with them they deliver more tha what we expected.

An excellent choice of tour to restart traveling after the long Covid delay!

This was our 3rd tour with Globus and, as with our first 2, they exceeded our expectations.

I enjoyed my tour with Globus very much. The bus was very clean and new and comfortable. The driver was outstanding and our tour guide was excellent. She was very knowledgeable. I loved the itinerary and it was a perfect way to travel. I would use Globus again for a future tour.

Globus Tours was amazing. I plan on using them again.

Globus was top notch. Our tour guide was exceptional. Everything was on time and we were able to get to many attractions early before the crowds.

This was our seventh trip with Globus and they continue to deliver first class experiences with incredible tour directors.

Autumn Cruse was absolutely fantastic to work with. She was dealing with about 8 women all living in different states and time zones! She deserves a medal and positive recognition from her employer. Good employees are very hard to find and retain these days. I look forward to working with her again.

The interaction and expereience witth Affordable Tours were professional, and met expectations.

We have travelled with GLOBUS consistently since the year 2000. (1-2 trips per year). Superior Tour Directors and Drivers!

There were a couple of changes to the itinerary after booking but they were additions and a change so we were happy with the adjustments in general.

Great trip. Guides were wonderful hotels great please have step stool on bus for passengers who cannot easily manage the large step to get on and off the bus. Wonderful trip

I have a wonderful time in this trip. Thanks to the tour director and staff (driver and tour guides) who make this trip fun and memorable.

I believe the itinerary was fast moving, but not too fast. Each city we had adequate time. I am very pleased.
