Health and Safety Protocols for Trafalgar Tours

Trafalgar has introduced these enhanced hygiene protocols – for you and team members.

You can travel with Trafalgar and be assured that their team has put numerous new measures in place to elevate their hygiene standards and protocols. The well-being of guests and team has always been, and always will be, their primary concern.

In this new, fast changing Covid-19 era, Trafalgar is doing all they can to adapt to new requirements and expectations. Here are some important new steps and procedures that they have implemented to enhance hygiene protocols, to comply with physical distancing requirements by relevant government authorities and to give you the peace of mind when you are traveling during these new times.

Expertly Trained Travel Directors

Travel Director training equips them with enhanced hygiene and physical distancing procedures. During your trip, they will operate with a duty of care and monitor the hygiene etiquette of the guests, reacting and advising as needed, to ensure high standards are maintained. Before you travel, Trafalgar will also keep you well informed about new protocols required in these areas, and ask that you cooperate with and heed the advice and direction of Travel Directors while on your trip. The Travel Directors have preventative measures in place to try and ensure your well-being and in the event that any unexpected issues arise on trip, they will activate additional protocols.

Stringent On-the-Road Protocols

The customized luxury coaches are sanitised before the start of your trip and have always been kept to very high standards. Following the outbreak of COVID-19, Trafalgar have taken additional measures to elevate hygiene and sanitary practices in accordance with guidance from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and as required, applicable government regulations. The Driver training provides them with the latest hygiene protocols. They will clean and disinfect all surfaces including handrails, door handles, tables, seats, air-conditioning filters and overhead lockers on a daily basis. All the guests are asked to follow hygiene practices recommended by the World Health Organisation including the thorough and regular washing of hands and sanitising when required. Hand sanitiser is freely available on board for your use throughout the day. Please bring your own washable face mask and gloves with you, and additional hand sanitiser to make you feel comfortable, as these will be required to be worn in public in some countries. Should an unexpected situation arise, additional face masks, rubber gloves, antiviral sprays and wipes will be available for guest distribution on all trips.

A Full Team of Support 24/7

It’s not just your Travel Director and Driver who will be taking care of you. Behind the scenes, the operations and guest support teams are in contact with them and on call 24/7, so you can rest assured that you’re in good hands.

Physical Distancing

Adapting to the right size groups, based on government distancing requirements, you can rest assured that you will travel with the comfort of your own personal space. Have peace of mind that all of the experiences, hotels and restaurants you’ll enjoy on your trip have been vetted to ensure they adhere to physical distancing and hygiene guidelines.

Trusted Partners, Exceptional Standards

Trafalgar is very selective in who they work with and choose to only use hotels, restaurants, ground handlers and venues that take the well-being of the guests as seriously as Trafalgar does and agrees to meet expected guidelines and specifications. Trafalgar only works with establishments that they are confident will consistently adhere to their high standards.

Always in the Know

As part of The Travel Corporation (TTC) , Trafalgar is kept up to date with all government advisories and travel alerts on a daily basis and is continually in touch with all of the partners on the ground in each destination. Also, rest assured that during your trip, the teams work to ensure the supplier partners (hotels, restaurants, museums and other venues) are also applying the same standard to these new hygiene and distancing protocols, to the extent possible.

Yes, our Trafalgar Tour was excellent and extraordinary. There was only one difficulty. We were supposed to be taken to the Hilton Hotel by a shuttle that the hotel provides on our arrival from Baltras Island airport to Guayaquil Airport. This was prearranged by Trafalgar and was stipulated on our itinerary. However, when we arrived to Guayaquil, there was no one there to tell us where to find the shuttle. We arrived around 12 noon and our next flight to Lima, Peru, was not scheduled to depart til 8:pm. The airport shuttle to the Hilton was to enable to us to put our luggage into storage, rest and have a meal prior to departing to the airport to depart for Lima for our return flight to Los Angeles, California. We arrived with a group of 4 ladies from Minnesota, who were also, on our tour. After waiting approximately 45 min for the shuttle to arrive, one of the ladies used her phone to call the call the Hilton Hotel to inquire about the shuttle. She was told that they would send out a shuttle to meet us at the passenger loading area in front to the airport. Fortunately this lady had phone service in Ecuador. Of the 6 of us in our Trafalgar Tour group, waiting in the airport, she was the only one who had phone service. Im'm not sure what action I could have taken to contact the Hilton Hotel in order to reach them regarding this problem. I hope you will pass this on to Trafalgar customer service as my husband and I husband and I were worried that we would have had to spend about 7 hrs stuck in the Guayaquil airport with 3 pieces of luggage. It was very much more comfortable waiting at the Hilton and having nice meal there.

We had a fantastic time in Peru. We enjoyed every day, learned so much from both our tour director and local guides. The hotels were all first class. We went during the "rainy season" which worried me but we had blue skies and wonderful temperatures. I have nothing negative to say except that since there was far distances to travel we did have a few very early mornings in order to fly to next destination. It was worth it!!

Trafalgar did a good job. However my husband became ill during the trip and our tour director seem more interested in keeping the tour moving than helping me make the best decisions for my husband's health. In fact I was told that if we left the tour he couldn't help us with alternate planning.

Due to Altitude sickness, extreme rain and an intestinal bug this was a difficult trip for the group. Perhaps a change in activity in Puno would be most beneficial!

This "Land of the Incas"trip was more that we had hoped for. We had first-rate 5 Star accommodations, excellent choice of meals and wonderful staff in all locations. Our Tour Director was a saint with his concern and care for all of his "charges". I have no idea when he slept with all his responsibilities. We also had a local guide in Cusco, who was also a very knowledgeable and super nice person. The local people in Peru, street folks, shop vendors, etc., were very friendly and patient with us and our limited language skills. All in all it was an excellent trip. Our one and only comment was that there didn't seem to be much time between some of the side tours with late arrival back to the hotel sometimes at 6:00 or 7:00pm and the start of the next days events, sometimes as early as 5:00am. We opted out of a couple of side tours just to have some free time to relax and see the cities.

Trafalger was a great company with professional and experienced tour guides. Accommodations, meals, options were top of the line.
