Covid-19 Questions

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, all customers travelling on the Tour will be required to wear face coverings and maintain social distancing.

Some customers may be exempt from wearing a face covering, a list of full exemptions are available here. It is advisable to carry a Helping Hand card to show to drivers and other passengers in case you are challenged for not wearing one.

How long does the tour take?

The three Tour routes are hop on, hop off , which means you can choose how long your day will be.

If you don’t want to get off the bus along the way and just want to admire the stunning scenery of the National Park, we would recommend that you allow at least 2 hours for a round trip on one of our three routes.
