Edinburgh Cab Tours – “We’re Good to Go”

In partnership with the National Tourist Organisations of Great Britain and Northern Ireland we have been certified that “We’re Good To Go.”

Here at Edinburgh Cab Tours we have always placed the safety of both our clients and our guides at the top of our priority list. 

This certification recognises that we are following government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, ensuring that processes are in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social/physical distancing. 

At the time of writing, Scotland is still in Phase 3 of lockdown measures. However, it is expected that the Scottish government will carry out a formal review on 30 July. At this time they will report whether lockdown restrictions in Scotland will be relaxed further as we move towards Phase 4.

Ms Sturgeon, the First Minister of Scotland has resolutely aimed to manage the expectations of the public. She has suggested that phase three may last longer than the first two phases of the phased strategy.

According to a Scottish Government document detailing the move out of lockdown, Scotland will move to phase four when the “virus is no longer considered a significant threat to public health”.

Edinburgh Cab Tours – Covid19 Measures

As the guidelines will gradually change over the coming weeks and months, we will advise our clients at the time of:

  • The appropriate social distancing measures
  • The provision and use of hand sanitisers
  • The use of face masks (where appropriate and recommended)
  • The cleaning and sanitising protocols that we use before, during and after every tour

Private Tours Only

Because we only provide private tours, we can reassure you that on our tours we do not combine our groups with visitors from other groups. We will always aim to avoid areas where there is a high footfall, or large groups of people. Similarly, we ensure that our guides observe correct social distancing and where appropriate the wearing of face masks.

Because we offer both vehicle-based tours AND walking tours, we can cater to the requirements of any visitor to Edinburgh and Scotland. Normally, our vehicles have a seating capacity for 7/8 passengers. In order to observe social distancing measures between the driver and passengers we will carry a maximum of four passengers.

According to government guidelines for public transport vehicles, we have adopted a minimum 1-metre social distancing within the vehicle. We also request that both passengers and the driver wear a face mask.

Presently we believe that the seating arrangement as shown in the image below follows the correct guidelines and allows up to 4 passengers.
