The ongoing Coronavirus pandemic has caused unprecedented upheaval for the world, including upsetting the plans of people looking forward to travelling abroad. We are committed to providing safe and enjoyable holidays for our customers, and as a result we suspended tours in all of our destinations departing from 19th March 2020 onwards.
We'd like to thank all our travellers whose trips were cancelled for their patience and understanding while we worked through their bookings and processed any refunds due.
From late 2020 onwards we have been delighted to be able to start running trips in more and more destinations again, based on the current situation in each country and in conjunction with our Safer Encounters scheme and any updated rules and precautions that local authorities have put in place to ensure that tourist travel there is as safe as possible. We will continue to add to this list over the weeks and months ahead.

Note – while there may not be any restrictions to our itineraries within a country, all destinations do have a range of different entry requirements. These often vary depending on whether you are fully vaccinated or not. As these requirements are changing regularly, we are not listing them all here (unless you must be vaccinated to travel). However, we provide all our customers with a dedicated pre-departure document around 2 weeks before departure which includes detailed up-to-date information on entry requirements, and what to expect in your destination (eg. extra hygiene precautions and protocols, mask wearing rules, seat rotation on vehicles etc.). You are also welcome to contact us for current information at any time.

We are accepting bookings for our tours in these destinations with start dates anytime from the Provisional Restart Dates given above. However, it must be stressed that these are provisional dates and the re-opening of international borders and countries to tourists is unfortunately not something we can control. Re-start dates will be updated as and when we get more information on the situation in each country. We will only restart tours in these countries once all our Safer Encounters checks and protocols have been completed and are in place. Our Flexible Booking Conditions will apply to bookings in these destinations to allow for date changes if necessary. Please ensure you wait to receive confirmation from us that your trip is going ahead before booking any non-refundable flights.
