We are currently taking reservations for all of our fall trips!
And, we're very happy to say that our first trip since March will run on August 17 to Block Island!
It has been a LONG stretch, and we want to thank you for your patience throughout the pandemic with all of the cancellations and rescheduled trips. We need to "stay the course" now - keep washing your hands, wearing masks, and social distancing and we'll get through this!
Due to the fluid coronavirus situation, we are currently not requiring any deposits for trips and will invoice each trip once it is determined that we have enough people to run the trip, and when the hotel, restaurant and attractions all have confirmed that they can safely take our group. We will assess each trip 45-60 days prior to departure and send out either an invoice or a cancellation notice to you once we have made a decision.
I would like to share with you the procedures that we are putting in place following the Governors guidelines to ensure safe travels:
Until further notice, when you arrive at the bus, you will need to be wearing a mask if you can not keep six feet between you and other passengers, and if you arrive without a mask, a disposable mask will be given to you.
I have purchased no-contact thermometers, and your temperature will be taken before you enter the motorcoach. If you have a temperature, you will not be allowed to travel. During this time, we will offer a refund to anyone that arrives at the motorcoach and is not allowed to travel because they have a fever.
Your tour director will give you a pocket-size spray bottle of hand sanitizer to use on the tour and keep afterwards.
While in phase three, we will limit the passenger numbers to 27 passengers per bus and practice social distancing with our seating plan as much as possible. Each person will have two seats and sit across the aisle from the person they are traveling with.
When entering and exiting the motorcoach, we will allow extra time so that there can be a 6-foot distance between people as we exit the coach

In this challenging time for all of us, please know that our top concern is protecting the health & wellbeing of our travelers. Cape Cod is a strong community and at times of crisis we all pull together and will make it through. Please take care of one another and keep yourselves safe.
