The Covid-19 pandemic continues to spread and it is clear that all parts of the world will be affected. This is obviously a cause for immediate concern regarding our project to India in June 2020 (annular solar eclipse) and later in the year for our project to Patagonia to observe the total solar eclipse in December 2020.
The virus involved is a new strain and is clearly highly infectious and although the resulting illness caused to those infected is usually fairly mild for most people, it can be much more serious for a small number. A great deal of work is being done throughout the world to refine treatment and develop protection from the effects of the virus.
We will continue to follow the situation regarding advice and entry into the countries involved on our tours and keep in close communication with our service providers in India and South America and the airlines involved.
We plan to make a decision regarding the India project by mid April but at this point we are confident that the project to Patagonia in December 2020 will go ahead and we will be able to provide a safe and enjoyable trip.
Our agents in the countries involved are in close touch with the local health authorities and will ensure that the hotels and transport providers will comply fully with any regulations or advice to ensure your safety on the tour. Obviously we will review decisions at any time in light of any fresh information.
