This has been a time unlike any other. It has been a full year of pandemic ups and downs, lockdowns, stay at home orders, online learning, zoom calls and we are all missing each other so dearly. For us, just like you, it’s been a year of baking, eating, gardening, Tiger King, Netflix, social distancing, take out, just to name a few. We truly have been in this together and what a celebration awaits when we can once again eat, drink and be merry together!
We have been keeping busy working and planning new and exciting tour programs so that when the time is right, we can return to what we love doing; travelling, sharing experiences together, making memories and hugging one another – oh, the hugs that await!
These unprecedented times have allowed us to pause and reflect on what is important. We have been re-evaluating our tours, safety procedures and services so that when we welcome you back with open arms travel will be safer and better than ever. Our highest priority is always the safety of our clients and our team. We are working closely with our professional associations to developing new safety measures to ensure our tours are designed to be safe, comfortable and enjoyable. In this “new world” we are living in, you will notice some changes, but we promise you that once you are onboard, you’ll have the same wonderful experiences that you’ve always enjoyed.
When we gradually begin to roll out carefully selected tours they will be close to home. We’ll be working closely with our trusted hospitality partner restaurants, hotels, attractions and theatres as they too begin the long re-opening process. We are hoping to expand to include the East Coast this fall as well as the Agawa Canyon Stream Trail Fall Colours tour. With excitement, we anticipate a full return to our Maple Leaf Tours by next spring.
Our Tours will be flexible and new tours will be gradually added as we make our way together through this pandemic to come out on the other side. We expect our tours to be ever changing as we continue to follow various health requirements. Improvements are being made to our online booking system so you can comfortably book from your computer, iPad, laptop or phone when the travel bug lands softly, beckoning you to once again share adventures with us. To keep our team safe, we remain closed but are available during regular business hours by telephone(613) 384-0012 or email info@MapleLeafTours.com

We understand that everyone will be ready to return to travel at different times, at your own pace, depending on your comfort level. We will be here waiting for you when that time comes.
We miss you dearly and can’t wait for the day when we can be together again.
Until then, take good care and be kind to one another.
Hugs from all of us, Kristine Geary and the entire Maple Leaf Tours team
