We are actively monitoring the discussions in Congress over federal funding, and the potential impact on our tours visiting Federal Sites & National Parks across the United States.

Without an agreement between the House, Senate and White House, the government will shut down on Saturday September 30, 2023 at midnight. The impact to our Tours will be limited to those visiting some Federal Sites & National Parks across the country. Some states including Utah, Arizona and Colorado have indicated that they will provide the necessary funding to keep the National Parks operating. Other states are considering similar measures.

If we are unable to operate or your tour is altered due to the government shutdown, we will contact you directly prior to departure.

Beginning July 19th, Ireland opens its borders to U.S. travellers and the country will require proof of vaccination for entry. Travellers who do not have proof of vaccination must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test result within 72 hours prior to arrival and a second COVID-19 test after arrival. So now is the time to pack your bags and set off for the Emerald Isle.

Collette’s first departure to Ireland – our ever-popular Shades of Ireland tour – leaves July 21, 2021. On this tour, don’t just explore Killarney but step back in time and experience it aboard a traditional jaunting car. Stay overnight on the grounds of a classic Irish castle. Marvel at the endless splendour at the Ring of Kerry. From the cobblestoned streets of Dublin to the breathtaking Cliffs of Moher, this is the Ireland of your dreams.

Check out this article from our friends at Afar.com for even more details on Ireland’s reopening plan.
