2022 Global Private Tour Bookings

Based on the unprecedented COVID-19 global pandemic’s effect on 2020 global travel, Kipling & Clark will provide maximum flexibility for 2022 private tour bookings. For new 2022 global private tour bookings, you may revise or cancel up to 30 days prior to departure in case of COVID-19 related reasons.  This may apply to  COVID-19 concerns in the U.S. or your global travel destination.  If canceled, your payment will apply to future international travel with no penalty.

At this time, the CDC is recommending checking the COVID-19 protocols at your intended destination as well as being full vaccinated and boosted. Upon re-entry in the United States, testing is recommended BUT not required.

COVID-19 related reasons include U.S. State Department Level 4 Travel Advisories, international flight cancellations to your destination, or entry restrictions in your destination country.
