Covid-19 Precautions We are Taking

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. Your health is our top priority, and we have put special measures in place to keep all guests safe both during and after your activity.

Stringent Cleaning of Buses - We are disinfecting touch surfaces and high traffic areas between each tour including windows, seats, seat belts and handrails with an EPA registered, ecologically sound, disinfectant. We will also have hand sanitizer available to all of our guests and masks are required at all times.

Wellness Checks - Employees receive daily wellness checks to ensure they are healthy and symptom-free. According to the CDC, COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. If you or anyone in your group is experiencing symptoms, we will work directly with you to cancel or reschedule your tour.

Limited Capacity - All buses will be limited to 50% of normal capacity or 6 people per bus except for private tours. Other companies are indicating they will be filling buses up completely to recover financially but at the current time we take your personal safety as a top priority over generating income. We will stagger seating for added safety measures for peace of mind.
