Tour Itinerary

Whereas most fairytales conclude with “The End,” that is exactly where this one begins. In this vast kingdom of jagged peaks, massive fjords, and imposing glaciers stretching across the southernmost tips of Argentina and Chile, you are the sovereign of this dramatic domain affectionately referred to as the “end of the world.” Surrounded by the granite pillars of Torres Del Paine National Park, standing tall before the advancing Perito Moreno Glacier, and cruising through the majestic scenery of the Beagle Channel, you will reign before glorious vistas, bask in triumphant scenery, and even prevail over a colony of Magellan penguins on this tour of pristine Patagonia. As no ordinary toast will do for such a colossal experience, you’ll rejoin civilization in Buenos Aires to raise your glass to the ornate teatros, the charming tea rooms, and of course, the steamy tango. Leave no stone uncovered on the hunt for archeological treasures on the world’s most isolated inhabited island. Home to the world’s largest open-air museum and nearly 1,000 mysterious Moai statues, Chile’s Easter Island is an intriguing extension to your South America vacation.

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.

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

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.

I have travelled with Globus and Cosmos 11 times. 5 Globus and 6 Cosmos. Nothing but excellent service, pricing and itinerary. Covid protocols were well maintained.

Globus has always been dependable and has gone above and beyond in these difficult pandemic times.

I have booked several Globus/Cosmos tours since 2013 mostly touring the US and Canada and have enjoyed every tour. The tour directors are very knowledgeable and friendly. I enjoy meeting the other people on the tours and comparing past trip itinerary's and getting some helpful tips as well. I will book with affordorabletours.com in the future.

Tour guide Susanna was informative and very personal.

We had a fabulous trip with Globus. Everything met and surpassed our expectations.

The tour guide we had during our bus trip through Spain And Portugal was great. Also, our bus driver was great. The guide was knowledgeable, caring and very helpful in ms y ways.

This was our second tour with Globus, and we had a wonderful time and were very happy with the whole experience. The covid thing was always in the background and some countries were changing their rules as we traveled, and Globus kept our tour director fully informed and we were able to work thru all the problems. Had a wonderful time. all of the problems encountered were small and not of Globus's control, ".....the eggs are cold...." type of thing. Probably the best tour we ever took, as so many other tours were not running we had many opportunities because the "normal" crowds were not there. and we had the place to ourselves.

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.

Globus and our tour director provided an outstanding experience.

This was our first tour with Affordable Tours and Globus. This planned trip exceeded our expectations, from the hotel accommodations, meals, and the guided tours. Special mention to our great tour director, Chiro who ensured that everything ran smoothly, Gerardo, our bus driver, and also tour guide Yvonne. The whole crew went above and beyond what they were supposed to do. Great, reputable company! My husband and I are already talking about planning another Italy tour, hopefully one with Chiro as the tour director.
