Dear Traveller

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop differently around the world, depending on the country and region.

Things are generally starting to move in the right direction for holiday travel though, and we know many people are starting to think about booking future trips again.

We have been busy working hard on a Safer Encounters Scheme, which focuses on the health and safety of our travellers and local staff, while still ensuring that we provide the great holiday experiences and activities our tours have always included.

If you're looking to travel on holiday to one of our destinations this summer, then
Greece and Turkey are excellent options. Both have managed the virus well and are open to UK and European tourists to visit.

Where to Travel in 2021

The majority of our travellers are looking at options for travelling later in 2020 or during 2021. To help you with some inspiration on where you could escape to, here are some of our teams ideas...
Mariah's Pick: Nepal

"Nepal has some of the best mountain hiking routes and scenery that the planet has to offer.

The fresh, clean air, huge open spaces and spectacular scenery of the Himalayas are perfect for people looking for an outdoor adventure after being locked down at home for months.

Nepal's beautiful palaces, temples and shrines adorning the Kathmandu Valley are also a must see."
Dan's Pick: Jordan

"Jordan locked down and closed off to international visitors very early, and is now emerging in a much better position than some of its neighbours to welcome tourists again.

Jordan was once only accessible to the most intrepid of explorers.

With fantastic outdoor sites to explore such as Petra, Wadi Rum and the Dead Sea, Jordan is one of our top tips for a safe and exciting holiday in 2021."

Mariska's Pick: South East Asia

"The countries in this region have managed the virus very well with low case numbers and offer a great mix of fascinating local culture, beautiful scenery and amazing food.

Planning a trip to South East Asia offers a wealth of cultural and adventurous holiday options.

Check out our trips in Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos."

Group & Private Tours

We are predominantly a small-group operator and rarely offer trips that could run with large numbers on full coaches.

Our small-group trips take a maximum of 12-20 people depending on the tour, and most group sizes will also be reduced to help with social distancing.

Despite this, we're aware many people may still be cautious of joining group tours, and so all our small-group and shoestring tours are now also available to book privately - just for you and any family or friends you'd like to travel with. In some cases prices can be almost the same as joining a group, even for just two people.

So, if you'd prefer a private trip, and the added flexibility and reduced risk that goes with it, do make sure to check all our tours out and contact us for more details and prices.
Flexible, Hassle-free Bookings

If you end up wanting or needing to change your plans, our new flexible booking conditions will apply to all new bookings for travel this year and in 2021, giving you the peace of mind to book with confidence.

If you're thinking about travelling with us next year or sooner, or have a travel question that need answered, feel free to reach out to us at any time.

We hope to see you soon! In the meantime, I hope you stay well and enjoy dreaming about your next holiday, whenever it may be.

Best wishes,
Ralph Foulds
