Walking Tours Update July 17th 2020
This week the Scottish Government relaxed lockdown restrictions to allow the tourism industry to begin the steady return to normal operation. To promote the initiative a short video was released showcasing Scotland and we thought to share it with you. While there is still the possibility of late bookings in August through to October this year we advise anyone wishing to walk next year to secure a date as soon as possible in anticipation of the much greater volume of stay at home holidays in 2021 and what better way to combine exercise with outdoor experience than on a long distance walk in Scotland. CNDo has a wide selection to choose from and by booking now you a secure a 2021 tour at this year’s price.
COVID-19 UPDATE – 12th June 2020
The latest advice issued by Tourism Secretary Fergus Ewing to support Scotland’s vital tourism industry is that a Scottish Recovery Tourism Taskforce will assist with the ongoing reset of the sector with a provisional date of 15th July identified for when tourism businesses may be able to resume operations.
This date is dependent on public health advice and progression to Phase 3 of the Scottish Government Lockdown Route Map however this is encouraging news that it may be possible to operate tours later this year despite the fact that all tours booked up to 15th July cannot proceed.
We thank you for your continued understanding of the situation and confirm that anyone who has a scheduled booking with CNDo will be contacted no later than 4 weeks before the walk start date to discuss all available options at that time.
COVID-19 UPDATE – June 2020
In the meantime, CNDo is deferring balance payments that would normally fall due for tours in this period.
In the event that lockdown continues into July, or restrictions prevent your walking tour, the options listed above will apply. You will either reschedule at a cost of £50.00 per person to a later date, until 31st October 2021, or cancel with loss of deposit. Full CNDo Booking Terms and Conditions here.
Note :- If cancellation is necessary, you will be provided an CNDo confirmation letter in respect of payments lost, for use with travel insurance claims.
COVID-19 UPDATE – 20th May 2020
The position taken by the Scottish Government means that we in Scotland are still in a state of lockdown with regards to COVID-19.
This has meant that all June tours are now cancelled with July now under review subject to the next planned official announcement on Thursday 28th May.
To date almost 85% of cancelled tours have decided to rebook, either later this year in September / October or postpose until 2021.
It seems likely that July will also fall into cancellation therefore it is imperative for those clients wishing to rebook confirm alternative dates as soon as possible in order to secure accommodation as this will be in great demand when things eventually return to normal.
If you do not contact CNDo before the 1st July we will contact you by email with your booking options of reschedule or complete cancellation.
In the meantime we ask for your patience and understanding in the belief that CNDo is committed to providing you the best of service in these difficult times.
VisitScotland has released a short video of encouragement reflecting the mood of the moment and we would like to share this with you here - VisitScotlandMay2020
