When Doing the Right Thing is the Hard Thing

To Travel or Not to Travel?

 

Why the hard decision has been the best decision

In the not-to-distant past the hardest thing a tour operator had to do was perhaps to choose the route, attractions and hotels to include when packaging a tour for potential guests. With the on-set of COVID that role has changed. We must now consider the age and health of our guests, social distancing and mask-wearing protocols, the protocols of our vendors like bus companies, hotels and airlines, guidelines and rules of the areas to which we are traveling, and whether or not travel can be accomplished in a safe, responsible and enjoyable manner.

At Prime Tours we have regularly taken all these things and more into consideration when deciding whether to move forward with, postpone, or cancel a tour. Since March of 2020, PT has cancelled or delayed nearly two dozen tours slated for 2020. These were hard decisions to make, but the right choice for a time when we need to pause our collective travel dreams while we re-group and determine how we will travel together safely in the future.

We are grateful to our many guests past and future for your kind words, patience and willingness to postpone your scheduled travel to our 2021 itinerary.

 

For those of you asking, are there ANY travel opportunities left in 2020, the answer is YES. We have 3 Big Bus ~ Small Group tours in Ohio, Williamsburg and Nashville coming up in November and December. All of these tours will feature groups that are half (or less) the bus capacity allowing for proper social distancing and kindly asking guests to wear masks while on-board. Our motor coach companies have enhanced their cleaning procedures to include industrial grade overnight anti-viral misting, wiping down high touch surfaces between each loading and unloading, and hand sanitizer stations on board. In addition our venues are limiting capacity to allow for appropriate social distancing.

For the rest of you, now, more than ever, we understand your need for a travel advisor to help you make quality informed decisions in a changing travel landscape. That’s why Prime Tours is proud to be your travel and tour company.  Our commitment to all our guests has never been stronger to meet and exceed your expectations.

We look forward to seeing your smiling faces as we once again rediscover our travel dreams.

Kevin & Lisa & the Prime Tours Team
