Dear friends and partners in travel,
We are very sorry the current situation regarding the Covid19 virus spread and containment has disrupted many of our current and near term travel plans.
While we are saddened to ‘pause’ the operation of tours for the time being and the foreseeable future, we are eagerly awaiting and very much looking forward to a time when it is safe travel again!
We are very optimistic that tours in 2021 will be able to operate, and we are happy to continue working with our groups and travelers on their longer term planning at this time.
For groups planning tours this year, we are constantly monitoring developments and making changes and adjustments as they are deemed necessary. We continue to communicate with your group leaders, as well as individual travelers, regarding these updates. We have found it necessary to reschedule some tours for later dates, and, in some case cancel some tours depending on the particular circumstances. In the case of tour cancellations, we are working hard to assist families in many ways to maximize refunds. In the case of reschedule tours, we will provide travelers with additional updates over time as we get closer to the new, rescheduled travel dates – there will likely be additional adjustments as we work to accommodate new factors we anticipate will evolve during this unprecedented time of ‘re-opening’. Through this time, we do remain committed to – at some point – offering our travelers relief from this extended ‘cabin fever’, and the opportunity to SAFELY partake in the fun, exciting, and interesting experiences provided on our travel programs!
While our physical office is closed (in accordance with government directives), we continue to work remotely from our individual home offices. We appreciate your patience and cooperation as many things take much longer than normal in this restricted operating environment. If you have a tour scheduled with us in 2020 and have not yet heard from us, rest assured you will in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, thank you for following the guidelines in place for social distancing and stay at home orders, so that we can all stay safe and healthy.
We truly believe this will lay the groundwork for the transition to something much ‘closer’ to the way of life we were all accustomed to enjoying.
