A Message from MD Steve Berry
Mountain Kingdoms has been running holidays across the world for the last 33 years, and now, as ever, the safety and well-being of our clients is our top priority. Since the start of the Corona Virus (Covid-19) outbreak we have been carefully monitoring developments in all the destinations we travel to, keeping in close contact with our partners on the ground and following the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) travel advice.
The situation is ever-changing and unpredictable but we have weathered many storms in the three decades that I have been at the helm of Mountain Kingdoms, from natural disasters to wars, assassinations and civil unrest. Mountain Kingdoms is a fully bonded company offering complete financial security - land only through ABTOT and air inclusive holidays through ATOL (2973). We are members of AITO and are fully accredited IATA agents. We have a highly experienced team here in the office and superb local partners across our destinations, all working hard to keep you safe and well, and to minimise any potential disruption.
I appreciate many of you may be concerned about what impact Covid-19 could have on your holiday arrangements. Whilst most situations will be covered by our usual booking conditions*, I am trying to be as flexible as possible in response to this unprecedented situation. Hopefully the guidelines below will make our policy clear but do get in touch with us on 01453 844400 if you have any questions at all.
Tourism is critical to many of the countries we travel to, so I do hope that you will continue with your holiday plans, and we will certainly do all we can to ensure that your holiday is a safe and enjoyable one.
At Mountain Kingdoms we are committed to Responsible Tourism and ensuring that all our holidays are undertaken in a way which is socially, environmentally and culturally sound. As part of this commitment we have now joined the Tourism Declares a Climate Emergency initiative.
Michael Rutland has over 16 years’ experience leading cultural tours in Bhutan for Mountain Kingdoms. Having retired in 2018, he’s happily decided that he’s not yet ready to give up sharing the magic of Bhutan – his adopted home country - and will once again be leading a departure of our Definitive Cultural Tour of Bhutan this November.
