COVID - 19 Safety Procedures

Updated - 10th January, 2023

Your safety and wellbeing are our priority. 

Government guidelines strongly recommend that you wear a mask on public transport and in crowded places. We encourage this on our tours and masks are available onboard our mini-coaches.

We also provide hand sanitiser onboard our mini-coaches.

Please reconsider your travel plans if you're feeling unwell.

Find the latest government guidance here for Scotland, England, ​Ireland and Wales.

Important: Please be aware that some attractions and other venues may require visitors to wear a face mask.

If you're joining us for one of our Europe tours, please check travel updates for Spain, Portugal, Italy and Switzerland as appropriate to your tour and make sure you follow all guidance and have the appropriate documents required to travel. Masks must be worn throughout the trip whenever required by local health authorities. You will need to bring your own supply from home to cover the duration of your travels.

Are your tours operating?

Yes, our tours are operating as normal. We make every effort to ensure tours run, but there may be circumstances outwith our control where we need to cancel. Please refer to our terms and conditions.

Is there physical distancing on the mini-coach?

We no longer offer physical distancing on our mini coaches. We’ll always try to sit you beside the people you’ve booked with, but this may not be possible on busier tours. If you’d prefer more space, you could consider a private tour instead.

Do I need a COVID-19 test to travel?

There are currently no testing requirements for entering the UK or Ireland, but please check travel advice for the country you are travelling from. 

If you are joining us for one of our Europe tours, please check travel updates for Spain, Portugal, Italy and Switzerland as appropriate to your tour.

Do I need to be vaccinated to travel?

You don't need to be vaccinated to travel with us, but please check travel advice for the country you are travelling from. 

Will the tour experience be affected?

Some attractions may have adapted visits or limited access and we’ll try to give advance notice of this. Otherwise, the legendary Rabbie’s experience is still guaranteed, and our driver-guides are ready to use their expertise to adapt to anything that changes during the tour. If we anticipate any major changes to your tour experience, we’ll let you know as soon as possible.

Do I need to pre-book attractions or meals?

We reserve space for you on the main attractions of your tour. You can decide and pay on the day, for any of these attractions that you want to visit.

On some tours you may have free time in locations to visit recommended attractions. Please note, we cannot always guarantee entry to these attractions.

If you’re on an overnight tour, we do recommend that you make evening dinner reservations in advance. The exact arrival time will vary so we suggest booking a table after 7pm. We’re not able to give accurate recommendations and advise that you check online listings and review sites for the latest availability.

What if I need to cancel?

If you can no longer travel due to Covid-19, please get in touch with us as soon as possible. Normal terms and conditions apply.
