PRIVATE TRANSFERS & GUIDING FOR INDIVIDUALS
Working with our core suppliers and in line with government advice we have prepared our “Covid-Safe” procedures for private transfers & guiding for individuals. Expectations can be set with regards to individuals taking private transfers, guiding and extended touring services though ASA. These will remain in place, and continue to be adapted if required, for as long as is deemed necessary according to local Government advice.
Many changes have had to be made in the way in which guests are greeted, luggage is handled and embarking / disembarking vehicles is to be managed – along with hygiene and cleanliness protocols.

As the majority of attractions start to re-open, full measures have been taken to make each environment safe to visit. Pre-booking is now required in the majority of cases which means open vouchers are currently not accepted at those sites. We hope that these requirements will only be temporary and that the voucher system will return sometime in 2021.
