Message from Travel: In the months ahead, we could have changes and you need to be prepared to be surprised. Travel groups know because of COVID, lack of workers, state and local guidelines, etc., situations change. Traveling, at least for now comes with plenty of unknowns. By the time we visit a planned destination it could be closed. Venues we thought would be closed could be now be open.
In both advertisements and general communications transparency is the key. Diane, our vendors and I want travelers to know the trip may not always go exactly as planned. But what is always a definite is we will work to make sure even with unknowns, we are doing everything to make sure you all have the best trip possible regardless. If substitutions ever have to be made--we thank you for your patience and understanding.
