The safety of our clients, local expert guides and staff remains our top priority. We have worked hard to ensure that health and safety measures are implemented on all of our Vox City Walks tours through the following:
Our tours are completely non-contact – you will use your own device and headset for the entire duration of your tour, therefore you will not receive props, headphones or visual aids, from any of our local experts.
If required by law or regulations set by local authorities, all our local experts and clients must wear a face mask for the entire tour.
Group sizes are small, ensuring that the government recommended social distance is maintained throughout the tour, for all participants at all times. The maximum group size may vary depending on the city and the rules set by local authorities.
All our tours are conducted entirely outdoors, avoiding the most crowded enclosed places and means of transport.
Live commentary from local expert guides has an unbeatable audio range, meaning you don’t have to huddle to listen, and you can tune in from your own mobile device at a distance that’s comfortable for you.
Self-guiding features, accessible via the Vox City app, allow you to discover the sights on your own, avoiding groups and queues.
Our flexible concept of “Hop-On / Hop-Off allows you to enter and leave at your convenience, but also at your comfort.
Our local expert guides reserve the right to ask participants to leave the tour in case they show visible symptoms of Covid-19.
Most of the time, your local expert guide will lead you around the city in English. However, you can tune in to your audio guide to listen to pre-recorded commentary in Spanish, French, German and Italian.
