smarTours announced the company’s international tours will resume starting in May, thanks to improving travel restrictions and vaccination efforts after a year-plus hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The first two tours will travel to Costa Rica (May 10th departure) and Egypt (June 21st departure) with additional tours including Alaska, Greece, South Africa, Kenya, UAE, and Peru planned throughout the summer.
In addition, tours to Kenya, Turkey, Jordan, Kenya, Iceland, Israel, and France are coming soon.
“One lesson from the pandemic is to take advantage of the time you have and see the places you want to see,” says Christine Petersen, CEO of smarTours. “Travelers are ready to check off bucket list destinations and experiences."
All smarTours will include comprehensive Covid safety precautions including individual safety packs, advanced emergency action plan, a list of health services and institutions in each destination, daily disinfecting of the bus, avoiding overcrowded destinations, contactless check-ins, alternatives to buffet meals, and social distancing practices throughout the tour. In addition, the company will coordinate group testing before returning to the U.S.
