Covid-19 and our tours
Unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic is not over yet. So here’s some things you should know about how the pandemic has affected our tours and what the steps are that we take to minimise the risk of transmission in the unlikely event one of our tour participants later tests positive.
We need the name of everyone who will be on the tour.
Currently the government of Andalucia requires us to have the names of all participants on a tour.
When you book tickets we will ask for each participant’s name. This is to enable the contact tracers to do their thing more efficiently if the worst does happen and we are notified one of our tour participants has tested positive for Covid 19 after the tour.
Entering enclosed spaces.
Due to the Covid-19 restrictions we cannot go inside most buildings as a group. Some buildings do periodically allow access to individuals but there are no guarantees.
Our protection strategy to reduce the chance of Covid-19 transmission.
To reduce the risk of infection that being in a group can cause, our tour sizes are currently reduced to a maximum of 6-8 people. So they’re almost like your own private tour.
Our guides are required to regularly wash or sanitise their hands and must always wear a mask. They will also keep their distance from you and we ask you to respect the distance requirements (1.5m between each person).
We also require you to wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth at all times. We like both you and our tour guides and want to keep everyone as safe as possible.
If you don’t think you can wear a mask for the length of the tour then please don’t book. Life is too short for the tension you’ll cause by refusing to wear a mask.
Don’t be alarmed.
If after reading all this you’re still interested in a tour (we know it’s scary stuff but most of the infection prevention listed here is what we all do already), then head over to our tour page and see what takes your fancy.

Reduce your risk of catching Covid-19 by wearing a mask.
If you need it, here’s a reminder of how to wear a mask.
The only difference between a fabric and disposable mask is you don't wash a disposable (obviously!).
