Coronavirus Safety Information

While Covid 19 is still a threat, the number of cases is decreasing and the number of people being vaccinated is increasing.  We will continue to take every precaution possible for your health and safety during our tours.  Travelers will be provided with our Safety Information Sheet that outlines steps being taken and any new policies.  We may reduce the number of seats being sold on our tours in order to allow more space on the motorcoach.  Passengers are required to wear a mask or face covering (over nose and mouth) at all times on the motorcoach.  Hand sanitizer is available and travelers are encouraged to bring their own.  The transportation company is also using new procedures for cleaning and disinfecting vehicles.  As we travel, we will respect all of the local guidelines and policies in place at the attractions we visit.  We will do our part and ask travelers to do theirs.  Travelers will be required to agree to and sign a Coronavirus Safety Information & Policy sheet prior to travel.
