Drury Hotels plans to roll out a  new program for groups requiring security by August 1, 2022. They will offer 3 different preferred security companies to book directly or tour operators can use their own security company (subject to approval.)

Details are pending but they anticipate GardaWorld, Allied Universal Security, and Student Watchers will be the preferred security vendors. They will not provide internal security once the program is released. GTO will update full details as they become available.

Rainforest Café’s pricing in GTO is up to date. However, supplier cannot guarantee when or if the pricing will change before the end of the year.
