being 'covid' secure
Guest safety is our top priority, with UK Government guidance changing regularly, we are working hard to ensure we have taken every step possible to be 'Covid Secure'.
Below is a list of how we intend to keep you safe during the pandemic & moving forward. This is not an exhaustive list but covers the main points on keeping our guides & guests safe.
Prior to taking part in your Cotswolds tour, your guide will conduct a temperature check of themselves along with temperature checks of all guests partaking in the tour.
Guests taking a tour must have a temperature no higher than 38.7d
wearing a face covering
Whilst inside the vehicle your guide will wear a mask at all times. Any guests taking part in a tour will be required to wear a mask on the minibus. Masks for guests are not supplied please ensure you bring a mask with you. If you forget don't panic, we will have disposable masks available!
ventilation & Commentary
Whilst spending time inside the minibus, we will keep windows open to ensure there is plenty of ventilation.
As we drive to each location on the tour we will provide a live commentary, the great news is, Cotswolds Guided Tours is the only tour company where the driver /guide uses a microphone so each guest can hear the quirky facts & local history!
mixed group tours
Your safety is our top priority. We put the safety of our guests first & because of this & due to government guidelines, we are unable to run mixed group tours.
Current guidelines state only two households can mix in an enclosed environment, your guide is classed as 'one' household, any visitors then form the second household. This means, for the time being we will be providing tours for your household group only. Due to social distancing the number of guests we can accommodate on tour has been reduced so we can only meet 5 guests per tour
cleaning of vehicle & touch points
Lucy & Richard will conduct a thorough clean of the minibus & any common touch points, between each tour using disinfectant & antibacterial spray.
Hand sanitiser will be available for guests travelling on the tour for use prior to boarding the minibus at each stop.
Due to government guidelines, we are required to take details about your travel.
We also require your contact details & onward travel plans, should we or a official 'contact tracer' needs to contact you in the future.
Your safety is our top priority! We can assure you that we will conduct ongoing risk assessments. Government guidance is changing regularly & we will provide updates on this page as an when new guidance is available. Please note the topics above are for your safety & the safety of our guides.
