We have taken every precaution possible to risk the spread of infection.
Our tours are Private, and so when in the vehicle you will only be in contact with your friends and family and your guide. Where convenient the guide will wear a face mark (i.e. when in the vehicle).

Hand sanitiser is available in all our vehicles and our leatherette seats mean we can disinfect after every tour. When we are visiting sites and attractions, we will adhere to the social distancing guidelines.
