COVID19 Travel Regulations 

With the ongoing outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we know that there are many questions to ponder regarding your travel plans.   We get daily updates from our partners across the globe and monitor the safety protocols in each country as they evolve and compile them to his page on a weekly basis.   Below are country updates from both destinations we operate in as well as special Virtuoso trips you can book with us. Visit our Travel Planning Services for more information.
