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.

Questions & Answers

Question: Is the luggage handled and taken to and from the bus and room? Heard you need to request a scenic view room at the different hotels? Also saw in reviews the Jasper hotel needs renovating?

Typically there are porters who will handle luggage from bus to hotel and hotel to bus. Some hotels may not have porters or may be temporarily unavailable.

This trip did not disappoint. From the booking experience to the accommodations, itinerary, food, tour director, bus driver and the beautiful places we visited in the Canadian Rockies! We would definitely recommend it.

Great trip but wish we had better weather. Jennifer, tour director was very thorough and informative. Lodging was top shelf. Abundant food at Hugh quality. Canadian Rockies amazing!

Everything about this tour met or exceeded our expectations.

Was a wonderful trip, but the accommodations in Jasper need to improve.

There was a problem with WestJet. We had a problem right off the bat at Richmond Airport. Delta wouldn't give us boarding passes because they said that WestJet had made a change and they didn't give Delta the correct paperwork on the computer. There were long phone calls to WestJet from me and the Delta agent trying to get it sorted out--WestJet said they had not made a change. Eventually it was fixed, after a supervisor got involved. But it was stressful for us. Also, I called the night before the Richmond departure to confirm the flight and was confused because my itinerary said all the flights and flight numbers were WestJet, but the agent gave me different flight numbers for the Delta segments, which was confusing to me. As for the accommodations, I was surprised not to get accommodations with a lake view at Lake Louise, and a mountain view at Banff Hotel. Our first night at Banff was spent at ground level in the new wing with a view of the parking garage. Our Globus guide managed to change our room the second night to one in the older part of the hotel with a great view, which was my preference. Otherwise, this would have spoiled my trip as the historic Banff hotel was THE most important part of the trip for me, which is why I booked a resorts tour (otherwise it would might just have been a Canadian rockies tour.) It's like the hotels gave us whatever rooms were available, without any preference given the tour operator's group (our group was split up all over the hotel). We wished a second night was built into the Lake Louise stay. Otherwise, the trip was wonderful and our Globus guide was fantastic.

I met several people on the tour who have travelled with Globus previously and have been pleased. While our tour director was very knowledgable. he lacked appearance and organization. It seems we were constantly asking about times for dinner and where it was to be. He also reeked of tobacco, and dressed sloppily. I understand this was his last tour with Globus in the Canadian Rockies, so maybe it won't make a difference. He did have extensive knowledge of the area but lacked people skills. As for the Globus booklet there were some shortcomings, specifically in fully explaining the optional tours and what days they were on. We had some concern on the final tour for dinner at Beckers and a bus ride to spot wildlife when the driver pulled off into a secluded area to show us bones and antlers. It almost seemed like a hijacking. Unsettling.

Jasper Park Lodge was not up to, what I consider Fairmont Standards. Furniture was worn, no robe in room, no stationery. More like Motel 6
