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.

Which new tour do you think travellers will fall in love with?

We have a small group Explorations tour to the Balkans that’s so fun, visiting Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Slovenia. And it’s so immersive – we meet a war survivor and learn from locals how to make Bosnian coffee. We join a third-generation truffle hunt family on their grounds and get to watch some adorable pups in action!


With 104 years of experience, Collette keeps bringing it every year – innovation, collabouration, and leadership. We listen to our travellers and create the tours that you want. I love being a tour designer so that I can stay ahead of trends, travel the world to uncover every authentic experience to include in your tours – and to see what kind of tours would make you happy. It’s the best job in the world!
