Health, Security and Safety Protocols

What you need to know about upcoming SUN TOURS travel - UPDATED August 20, 2021

We at Sun Tours recognize and share the concerns of all our travelers. We consider the safety and security of our passengers and staff members as paramount and would not knowingly place anyone in danger on any of our tours or cruises.

We continue to stay up-to-date and are following the advice of our ground operators and government travel and health organizations as we continue to monitor the feasibility for our other tours and cruises. If you are booked on a postponed, rescheduled, or canceled tour or cruise, we will be in touch with you as soon as we have more details. We appreciate your patience during these challenging times.



The wellbeing of our guests is our top priority. That’s why we’re updating our vaccination policy to require all guests traveling on tours departing September 10 through at least December 31, 2021 be fully vaccinated. You can submit proof of vaccination through this form.


Additionally, given many venues such as museums and restaurants around the world are requiring proof of full vaccination or near-daily negative PCR testing results for non-vaccinated visitors, this policy will help ensure our travel experiences are as seamless and joyful as possible.

Your final vaccine dose must have been administered a minimum of 15 days prior to the start of the trip. 

If you haven't already done so, you can now register to receive the COVID-19 vaccination. Register with NM Dept. of Health at and complete the online form.  

​SUN TOURS has put into place the following health and safety protocols to keep you safe while you travel with us.  We ask for your help in maintaining a healthy environment for your fellow travelers, SUN TOURS staff and the staff of our attractions, restaurants, and hotels. We are stronger TOGETHER!

For your protection, SUN TOURS has established these protocols:

  •  We have hand sanitizer available for use upon entry to the motorcoach and assure the use of face masks while engaged in tour activities.

  •  Rigorous motorcoach cleaning protocols are in place including deep cleaning each night and high-touch surface cleaning throughout the day.

  •  We make sure that each attraction and hotel visited on the tour has satisfactory health and safety protocols in place.

  •  We use our state-of-the-art SUN TOURS SOUND system for social distancing while listening to tour directors and guides (on selected tours).

  •  We have established procedures for isolating travelers who become ill while in tour.

For your protection, SUN TOURS has these requirements for travelers:

  1. Do not travel if you are ill or have been exposed to COVID.

  2. Always wear a face mask while engaged in tour activities (other than while actively eating or drinking). Please bring your own face masks.

  3. Follow guidelines and instructions of your Tour Director, Escort or Driver.

  4. Maintain social distance as practical.

  5. Use the SUN TOURS SOUND system to enjoy the Tour Director or guides while maintaining social distances. (You can use your own earpiece, or we will provide one.)

  7. Have a Great Trip!
