Group Travel is Back!
With domestic travel finally opening up, Ellen Walker, of Tour Operator Travel Editions, reports back on a whirlwind of activity on the group travel front.
“Wow… what a few weeks it has been!
We started operating tours in the UK again from 17th May with the very first one heading to the English Riviera and it almost feels as though we have never been away. From Dundee to Tiverton, from Stornoway to Milford Haven our Private Groups have returned to travel with a vengeance! The enthusiasm Group Travel Organisers have shown to get back on the road with their members has been extraordinary, and the welcomes that they have received all around the country has really been very special.
It has been especially rewarding after the last 16 months to see so many people embrace travel again with an enthusiasm that really knows no bounds. There have of course been challenges as we have had to adjust tours to ensure they are all Covid compliant, but nobody seems to have been deterred by that.
Just a few of the many comments we have received –
“Tony, the Tour Manager, and Mark, the coach driver, are both outstanding at their jobs. The coach was very comfortable and the tour interesting and enjoyable. After Covid having stopped tours for some time it was lovely to resume.” Catherine, Gardens of South West Wales.
“A very good holiday. Excellent tour guide. Hotel comfortable and friendly. Everything ran to time. Much enjoyed” Storma, Dundee & Angus
I really enjoyed my holiday looking at gardens of the west country every garden was different from National Trust gardens to smaller family gardens. David Hurrion was an excellent guide and host. I must mention our coach driver Kitch, how he drove around the tight Somerset and Devon lanes I will never know, what skill! Thank you both for really making this holiday one to remember.” Kay, Gardens of the West Country
Our thanks go to everyone who has facilitated our return but most especially to our Group Travel Organisers, without you this would not have been possible!
If you feel ready to start planning ahead for your group again then please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like to discuss your future plans. Alternatively drop a line to our Groups Manager Tracey Konidaris at firstname.lastname@example.org“
