The bus has left

Posted By on Fri, Sep 26, 2008 at 2:28 PM

Cosmopolitan Tours, a major bus-tour company in Little Rock, has closed and advised customers who’d paid for coming tours that it can’t refund their money.


In a letter to a customer, Laura Wheeler of Cosmopolitan Tours wrote:


“Due to the current economic situation, the high fuel costs and hotel rates, Cosmopolitan Tours, Inc., is unable to operate the tour [a New England fall tour], as referenced above. I deeply regret having to take this action, but I am faced with no realistic alternative. As of now, Cosmopolitan Tours, Inc., is closed and financially unable to process refunds. I sincerely apologize on behalf of Cosmopolitan Tours, Inc.”


The telephone at Cosmopolitan Tours has been “temporarily disconnected,” according to a recorded message. Marshall Ross of Little Rock, the recipient of the letter, said he’d paid Cosmopolitan $3,300 for a New England tour for two.
