  • All Golden Tours staff, including drivers and guides will undergo a routine temperature check at the start of every working shift/tour. Customers boarding our coaches will also undergo the same procedure before the start of the tour.
  • We will be providing complimentary face masks and gloves to all our guests, hand sanitiser will be available on all our coaches to be used at any time during the tour. If the customer prefers bringing their own face masks, gloves or hand sanitiser, this will be welcomed.
