Coronavirus Information

Last updated:

All tours are now fully operational as normal.

However, we ask that you continue follow WHO advice to minimize transmission of the virus, including physically (‘socially’) distancing from anyone not in your group, so that everyone can feel comfortable and risk-free on the tour.

We are accepting bookings for all tours, and will refund any cancellations due to COVID-19.

We’re accredited by Visit England as “Good To Go”, which confirms our tours are COVID-secure – i.e. an appropriate risk assessment has been carried out, and suitable processes are in place.

Please see the sections below for more information.

Advice to Minimize Transmission of the Virus

We are not health experts, and in the first instance would refer you to the following resources:

The general advice is

  • Keep at least two metres apart from anyone not in your own group;
  • Wash your hands regularly with hot water and soap/detergent for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content;
  • Catch any sneezes or coughs in a tissue, properly dispose of it as soon as possible, and wash your hands afterwards;
    • If you don’t have a tissue to hand, use the inside of your elbow;
  • Try to avoid hand contact with your face.

Walking-Tour-Specific Advice

In the sections below we have interpreted the guidance for the context of a walking tour.

Physical (‘Social’) Distancing

You should always try to keep at least two metres apart from anyone not in your own group.

Given that the guide will be doing most of the talking, projecting breath forwards, we suggest standing further back from the guide than this.

When moving between one place and the next, avoid walking in single file if possible.

  • This helps avoid breathing in air that has just been exhaled by the person in front.
  • Likewise, when arriving at each outdoor location, try to avoid standing immediately downwind or upwind of someone else.

Masks

When visiting inside buildings, you may be required to wear a face covering (unless you are exempt on grounds of age, health or disability); however, these are not mandatory for the outdoor parts of the tour.

The guide will not normally be wearing a mask outdoors, as this would impede communication, but can do so on request when conducting private tours.

If You Think You Might Have Coronavirus

If you have any of main the symptoms, or have been in close contact with anyone who has within the last seven days, we respectfully ask, for the benefit of everyone, that you do not attend the tour (we will refund your ticket price).

The main symptoms are

  • a persistent dry cough;
  • a body temperature above 37.5°C (99.5°F; fever) –
    • you will “know about it” without necessarily needing a thermometer, and
    • if someone were to touch your chest or back (they should wash their hands afterwards), you would feel hot to them – and/or
  • loss of sense of smell or taste (anosmia).

Other symptoms may include fatigue, muscle aches (myalgia) or headache.

Refunds and Cancellations

If you have booked a tour that has to be cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions you are entitled to a refund of the purchase price of the tickets.

We will also refund any other cancellation due to COVID-19 (e.g. you have symptoms), provided you advise us before the time of the tour, as well as any cancellation made at least 48 hours in advance.

As this is our livelihood (we need to feed our children, etc.), if there’s any possibility that you could postpone rather than cancel your booking, we would be exceedingly grateful.

Nuisances

Anyone wilfully not following health guidelines, advice or instruction will be removed from the tour in accordance with our terms and conditions, for the benefit of everyone.
