Thank you for your patience and support during the pandemic - it certainly has been a difficult roller-coaster for us all!
We can't wait to travel with you again on a Funtastic trip!!
Face coverings will still be required for all individuals on public and private transportation, so you will NEED to wear a mask while on the motorcoach.
When you are not on the bus, mask usage will be at the discretion of the state or attraction that we are visiting. At this time, proof of vaccination is NOT required to take our tours, but be aware that some of the attractions or cities DO REQUIRE proof of vaccination for admittance.
Providence Performing Arts Center, Boston Opera House, Boston Symphony Hall, and Boston's Boch Center - all REQUIRE that masks be worn while in the theater AND that each patron show proof they are fully vaccinated. The Providence Performing Arts Center will also accept proof of a negative Covid PCR test taken within 3 days of the show, or a negative rapid test taken within 6 hours of the performance for non vaccinated individuals.
EFFECTIVE JAN 15, 2022 - The city of Boston will be enforcing vaccine requirements for many indoor establishments. Acceptable proof of vaccination can be in the form of your original vaccine card, a photo of your card on your phone, or Covid-19 verification apps.
Proof of vaccine will be required in the following venues within the city of Boston - all indoor dining and food service locations including bars & nightclubs, movie theaters, music or concert venues, commercial event & party spaces, musuems & galleries, sports arenas & indoor stadiums, convention centers & exhibit halls, performing arts centers, bowling alleys, recreation centers, gyms, fitness centers, indoor pools.
Other venues within the city of Boston that do not require vacinnes will still have a mask mandate.
EFFECTIVE JAN 15, 2022 - the city of Salem has enacted a vaccine requirement for the same indoor venues as Boston
As of May 29, 2021, there are no capacity limits or social distancing rules in Massachusetts, so we will no longer limit our capacity to 26 passengers or leave empty rows of seats between travelers.
ALL passengers will be required to wear a face mask while on the motorcoach until Gov Baker revises the mask requirement. If you are more comfortable wearing a mask during the entire trip, please do so. If you arrive without a mask, a disposable mask will be given to you.
If you are not fully vaccinated, please wear a mask on the bus AND whenever you cannot socially distance from other tour members.
As always, if you are not feeling well, please stay home.
