A Challenging beginning to 2020
Myself & Berny and the team would like to start by saying a huge thank you from the bottom of our hearts, to you, our incredibly loyal and supportive customer base. Your faith in us as a business in this very trying time is incredibly humbling and heartwarming.
We would like to share with you what is happening right now and our tour plans for SPRING 2020 and for a BUMPER 2021!!!
We recently took the very difficult but necessary step of cancelling all of our tours scheduled to depart before September 1st 2020. This decision was not made lightly, but Myself, Berny and our wonderful staff, know this is the right thing to do to protect the health and wellbeing of our customers, our crews and our tour partners. We have a moral and ethical obligation to our wonderful travelling companions – our customers – particularly our more senior travelers, to do everything within our power to help ensure the spread and impact of Coronavirus is kept to a minimum.
Financially this is an extremely tough blow, not just to our business, but to the many touring partner businesses we work closely with, who also rely on us to provide ongoing work for them and their business and in turn their own employees. WE WILL be here for the long haul and will come out the other side bigger, stronger and better!
We honestly believe the worst of this will be behind us by Spring and we anticipate resuming our tour program at that time. A number of tours have simply been re-scheduled for later in the year and not cancelled. So you haven’t missed out and can re-book for later this year or next year. We will be here to give you all something to look forward to and to provide some light at the end of the tunnel.
The whole team is looking forward to hearing from you and we are taking bookings right now for our tours leaving after August! With your continued support and patronage the O’Shannessy’s Quality Tours family will continue to take you on amazing adventures all around this beautiful country and beyond.
Chris & Berny O’Shannessy & the Team
