We hope that you share our joy seeing these very happy travelers on Gate 1’s first tour departures since last March!
Our first of several sold out groups commemorated their U.S.A. visit to the National Parks with a celebratory champagne toast after dinner. Just imagine their joy, sitting with fellow travelers and exchanging personal experiences and dreams of future travel. Each tour has been a resounding success. They thoroughly enjoyed visiting Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, and much more. More U.S.A. tours are traveling now and will continue with several groups departing each week through the end of the season. In August we will operate our first international tours to Greece, Kenya, and Iceland. In September, we expect to operate all international destinations which are open and welcoming our groups.
Covid still poses challenges, and we remain committed to practicing extreme caution, for now only allowing fully vaccinated guests to join our tours. Individual destination restrictions are often complicated, numerous and change frequently. Many countries require travelers to complete pre-travel health declaration, and to be subject to testing before departure, upon arrival and again before returning home.
We remind enthusiastic travelers that you will need to add an extra dose of patience to your packing list. Airport lines are often long due to implementation of new processes and protocols. Tourist sites, hotels and restaurants continue to struggle with staff shortages. A bit of empathy and understanding as these suppliers safely restart their businesses will go a long way to ensure that you and your fellow travelers have a wonderful trip.
We can’t thank you enough for your kind words and encouragement during the last year and a half. And we can’t wait to show you More of The World for Less! again very soon.
