Where can I find information about upcoming tours?

As travel rules and restrictions are constantly changing, we must be fluid with the conditions around us and ensure that you will have a quality experience when you travel on our tours.  This limits our ability to forecast new tours and departures to one month in advance.  As our new trips and departure dates become available, they will be updated on a weekly basis on our Calendar and Facebook page.

Do I need travel or cancellation insurance for tours?

RTT Tours operate across many regions and countries, utilizing a variety of public and private venues, all of which have different restrictions and policies regarding COVID-19.  The entry rules to a region, country or venue can change between when the tour is scheduled, when a customer books the tour, or right up the day before departure.  If requirements change after a customer has booked a tour and the customer is unable or unwilling to meet the new requirements, courtesy refunds related to vendor/third party costs/fees WILL NOT be provided.

RTT Abroad (Flight) Tours utilize third-party vendors (Airline, Cruise, Hotel), which are not eligible for courtesy refunds or any exceptions to the trips specific cancellation policy and RTT Terms and Conditions policy regarding Change & Cancellation by Client.  Due to the cancellation policy implemented by the vendor, fees CAN NOT be waived for military active duty or any other related reasons. For this reason, RTT strongly advises all participants to obtain travel insurance that will minimally provide coverage to cover cancellation fees, travel fare, illness or injury during travel, theft, unrests, and other unforeseeable circumstances that could disrupt travel plans.  Travel insurance of this nature can be obtained through many credit card companies as well as the sources listed below:
