BOOK WITH CONFIDENCE WITH PAUWELS       

From Sandra Pauwels

To facilitate our planning, Pauwels Travel has introduced a flexible tour registration process. This will allow us to evaluate the level of interest in a tour without requiring participants to make any firm commitments for as long as possible. This system will work as follows:

If you would like to join a tour, please submit a registration form without making any payment.  When we know there is sufficient interest to allow that tour to go forward, those who have registered will be contacted and asked to pay a deposit, the amount of which will depend on how close we are to departure date. Anyone registered at that time will have the option to pay the deposit or opt out without any penalty. Once the deposit is paid, the regular terms and conditions will be in effect.

I hope that our flexible registration policy will encourage you to sign up for one of the tours we have planned for 2021 and 2022. Like you, I look forward to the day when we will be able to travel again.

Sincerely,

Sandra Pauwels

 

Travel Update: August 1, 2021

As July comes to an end and we enter into the 17th month of dealing with the pandemic, I want to provide an update on where we are with our programing. While a step up from previous announcements, the only thing I can advise potential guests with any certainty is there is lots of uncertainty. The global situation continues to change constantly. No one knows when authorities will lift travel bans, and is that a guarantee they will stay lifted? Entry requirements for different countries evolve as COVID numbers continue to fluctuate around the world and restrictions such as proof of vaccinations are being put in place to access museums and restaurants.

We continue to monitor the situation and have decided as a company to hold off on making any firm decisions regarding our tours until 65 days before departure. This hopefully will give us a better idea of how feasible it will be to proceed with the trip. If all venues on our itinerary are open and keen to have us, we will proceed with the arrangements and notify anyone who has expressed an interest so they can decide if they would like to proceed or not. If the experience overall looks like it will be compromised by an inability to visit all the restaurants and cultural venues we have planned, or if tourist sites and commercial establishments are closed, etc., there is no point in going and the tour will be cancelled. All potential participants will be notified and the tour removed from the website.

When we are able to guarantee a departure, we will require that all guests be fully vaccinated. This policy will be in effect until the end of the year. We wish for our guests to experience travel seamlessly. With many cultural and leisure venues such as museums and restaurants requiring proof of full vaccination or risk being excluded from participating, we feel that requiring all guests to be fully vaccinated is the most responsible choice.

Participants must be capable of producing documented proof of vaccination. Government-issued proof of vaccination is sufficient (paper copies are recommended), but please be aware that certain destinations may require additional steps. We will continue to monitor the local requirements and will advise any additional steps, restrictions or requirements as they arise.
We thank you for your continued patience as we work on ensuring our tours are a pleasurable and hassle free --- or as hassle free as it can be in this day and age.

Sincerely,
Sandra Pauwels

CREATING MEMORIES

We certainly would include this tour among the best holiday trips that we have ever taken. The tour arrangements were great, including the hotel and meals and the well organized day-trips... We found Berlin to be a virtual walk-in encyclopedia of arts and architecture. We also found your daily 'briefings' on the history of Germany to be very helpful in filling in the gaps from our readings preparatory to the trip. JOHN, BERLIN IN DEPTH
