We aim to be able to sit around the same breakfast table together, to avoid “fish bowl tourism,” and spend time in connection with our fellow travelers and locals.

We do limit the amount of women on each trip to 15 people, which allows for a safer, small group environment while traveling. Hand sanitizer and other sanitizing products will be available with your tour host at all times. If you personally do not feel safe traveling during these times, we are happy to add you to our contact list for trips in the future. As COVID is a large concern for all of us, we have implemented a highly flexible cancellation policy for our trips. However, outside of the lenient policy in place we are not offering additional COVID-19 related refunds at this time unless the group trip as a whole needs to be cancelled. If you have any specific COVID-19 concerns, please feel free to email to discuss further.
  • Are their other COVID policies I should be aware of?
    Cherish will operate in line with all local government and WHO regulations for COVID travel. It will be likely that you will be required to bring a mask and hand sanitizer with you on your trip. Anyone suffering from COVID-19 symptoms or that tests positive for COVID-19 prior to the trip will be asked to stay home. The safety measures you should be aware of are: - You may be required to wear a mask at certain points during your trip - If you become ill, the trip leader has the authority to remove you from the trip and/or request for you to isolate yourself from the group - Your safety and the group’s safety is our top priority - If you have not been vaccinated you may be requested to take a COVID test prior to traveling with the group
  • What is the policy in the event someone in my group gets sick?
    Cherish highly values each member of their tour group, and their personal health and safety while traveling. We will do our best to isolate the sick person from the group and get them medical treatment. If their symptoms are in line with COVID-19, if possible, we will get them tested as soon as possible. Any guest who has symptoms that are in line with COVID-19 or tests positive will not be able to continue with group activities.
  • What if I get ill during my trip?
    If you get ill or have to leave for another reason during the trip, your trip leader will be on hand to help make arrangements for you. However we will not be able to offer a refund for missed activities or trip related expenses.

Cherish is not responsible for additional expenses or issues if you are unable to enter a country due to not fulfilling these COVID-19 related requirements.
  • What is your #1 suggested packing item?
    A comfortable, lightweight pair of shoes. I don’t mind wearing sneakers with a dress, so any shoe that is versatile and squeezes into tight packing spaces is essential.
  • What is the biggest tip you would give for first-time travelers?
    Make a packing list early! This allows for you to do any fun vacation clothes shopping in time to bring all the things that you would like. The other major thing I suggest is to read a bit of history about the place you are traveling to. I believe it helps you have more understanding and appreciation for the country you will be staying in.
  • What’s the best piece of travel advice you have ever received?
    Look at where you have come from. Pause and turn around to look at the path or the scenery you just passed. Enjoy the beauty of where you are traveling to, but also where you’ve traveled from.
  • What’s the first thing you do when you get home from a trip?
    Megan: I love on my dog the minute I’m home. Cuddle up and just enjoy my couch with him and watch a movie.
