Our Promise to our Travelers
Before Your Trip
At 60 days prior to your trip we will begin sending out updates every other week on the local situation and any necessary health and safety protocols in place in the region that our travelers should be aware of.
We have always prided ourselves on offering small group trips and we will continue to limit the number of travelers to 16 people max. Our groups tend to be made up of an average of 8 travelers.
Transportation & Equipment
We will be implementing enhanced safety and sanitation measures in all our vehicles. For open groups, Great Explorations requires all passengers to wear masks when in our vehicles. There will be enough room in our vehicles for travelers to space themselves out in order to maintain social distancing between unrelated parties. For private groups, Great Explorations will default to the group’s choice, however our guides and drivers will always wear masks when in our vehicles. Vehicles will be sanitized and cleaned after every use.
Bikes and equipment will be thoroughly disinfected prior to the trip beginning and throughout the trip whenever necessary. travelers will be assigned personal equipment: bike, helmet (where provided), etc. that they will be the sole user of for the duration of the trip.
We pride ourselves on working with incredible off the beaten track boutique hotels. We will communicate any of our accommodation partners’ relevant health and safety measures to our travelers prior to the trip. The health and safety of our travelers is of the utmost importance to Great Explorations. Whilst we are not responsible for the health and safety protocols of our partners, we will be taking their measures into account when deciding which accommodations we will work with.
T & Cs
We have updated our Terms & Conditions in order to be as flexible as possible and help you book with confidence, all while ensuring we can continue to offer once in a lifetime adventures for many more years to come.
Enhancing Our Offer
We understand that not all travelers will feel comfortable with group travel at this moment in time and that is why we are offering more options than ever before, so you can design a trip that feels right for you. Whether you want to design your own custom trip, make any of our trips private, we’ve got you covered! Individual travelers on group trips may opt for a private room with our single supplement offer.
We have also added even more trips closer to home. For those who’d prefer to explore their own backyard for the time being, we have even more options for you!
Our sister company Randonnée Tours offers self-guided tours, which is also a great option for travelers hoping to stick strictly with their own bubble but are itching to get back out on the road adventuring.
