Guests are required to use face masks during our tours; even though we would love to see smiles all over our guests’ faces during the Food Tour journey, we will have to ask all to wear a face mask.
No physical contact with guests (hand-shakes, kisses or hugs), which includes a safety distance of 1 meter when possible; even though we are a nation who loves hugs, kisses or handshakes, we’ll have to keep a safe distance this time.
