We have introduced additional protocols and measures. Below are steps and procedures we are continuing to take to enhance hygiene standards and take into consideration the social distancing aspect in this new era of travel;
- All our coaches and buses have always maintained a high standard of maintenance and cleanliness, they will continue to undergo a thorough deep clean at the start of every tour in accordance with the government or other institutionally verified cleanliness guidelines.
- Our staff, guides and drivers are fully trained on hygiene protocols and procedures to make sure our guests feel safe travelling with us.
- All Golden Tours staff, including drivers and guides will undergo a routine temperature check at the start of every working shift/tour.
