Welcome to Phase 2 - starting June 1st...
Here we go...Montana is on its way to further reopening the state to allow more businesses to return to full capacity (next phase is 75% for some businesses), and to allow tourism as well as other industries and businesses a fighting chance to recover and stay open, while the COVID-19 crisis is still occurring throughout the world. This new phase also means that the 14-day quarantine for out-of-state visitors is to be lifted
; although, social distancing, the wearing of masks or face protectors, and other common sense hygiene practices are still encouraged (and in some places, recommended). More details on the Phase 2 reopening plan for Montana can be found here

Meanwhile, MTAS will continue
to help practice social distancing by allowing all trips to be "private" shuttle trips and tours (meaning, no mixed groups), at the mixed group pricing, through the month of June. I will continue to wear a mask, and offer them to passengers, as well as gloves.
In addition, with the 14-day mandatory quarantine soon to be lifted, there will be more opportunities to enjoy the Missoula area, the region or the state without 'running into people'!
Let's let our collective creativity flow to design a dream trip for you and yours, while you soak
in the beauty and adventure
that Montana has to offer!
While the lull in activity for a company like mine was to be expected when the pandemic 'hit', activity is increasing; and travelers as well as myself are looking to summer to find relief, as we proceed with caution...
Road trips are good for the soul, so "let's go!"
That said, I hope you continue to look ahead with hope and reassurance that we will get through this, and continue to
