I will observe the following Code of Conduct produced by the Guild of Tourist Guides
1. Guides will ensure they are familiar with the most up-to-date public health guidelines and will adhere to these for the duration of the tour and will maintain government-recommended social distancing between themselves and clients at all times. 2. On tours where the group includes different households, guides will encourage and help clients to adopt appropriate social distancing between each other too. 3. When guiding groups from different households, guides will follow government guidance to determine the maximum possible group size. 4.Guides will avoid shaking hands or any other physical contact with clients. Guides will apply rigorous hygiene practices, including thoroughly cleaning and waiting for hands to dry before guiding, and use a personal hand sanitiser when this is not possible. 5. If requested, guides will consider wearing a mask or visor. 6. Badged guides will know where public toilets/hand-washing facilities/hand sanitiser points are available. 7. Remote audio devices will be used for groups larger than two 8. Guides are experts in the tourist sites they visit with clients. Guides will ensure they are fully aware of sites' specific Covid-19 requirements and comply with them. 9. Guides know the town and will be familiar with more crowded areas and will make best efforts to negotiate them, or if appropriate, avoid them.
Due to the current Covid Crisis most of my touring work for this Summer is Cancelled. Therefore I have developed a series of town and country walking tours in my home town. Check below
