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.

Chris and Dottie Carey

Chris and Dottie Carey are two travellers who make a difference. Hailing from Pennsylvania, they've gone guided with us many times, and in 2016 they tried an Impact Tour to Ecuador. Their experience was very rewarding and it truly brought them closer to the people of Ecuador. They loved their trip so much that they jumped at the chance to go on another Collette Impact Tour.
