Check out our Q&As

  • Will we avoid large groups of people?

    We’re very eager to explore with you in the future, however avoiding large crowds at popular attractions and locations will be challenging. Our Blue-Roads tours deliver unique travel experiences that naturally visit lesser-known destinations – providing our guests with exclusive access to local experiences and charming, hand-picked accommodation. This means we are able to provide an unforgettable travel experience for our guests whilst avoiding larger crowds whenever possible.

  • Will I have to wear a mask whilst on my tour?

    Some personal protective equipment (such as a mask or gloves) may be required for particular destinations and attractions. However, we will provide details before your tour departure so you are prepared according to your destination of travel. To ensure the safety and comfort of all our guests, failure to comply with Blue-Roads policies and government regulations could result in your removal from your tour.

  • How many people will be on my tour?

    At Blue-Roads Touring, we specialize in small group tours with a maximum capacity of 18 people (average group size of 14 people). This small group element is one of the key reasons people choose to travel with us. Traveling in smaller groups means our Blue-Roads Tour Leaders can provide a more personalized traveling experience to every one of our guests.

  • What if I start to feel unwell on my tour?

    Let your Tour Leader know as soon as possible. Feeling unwell on a tour can happen and our Tour Leaders are already trained on appropriate actions to take if this occurs. Before we return to the road, all Blue-Roads Tour Leaders will receive additional training specific to coronavirus safety – ensuring they're prepared as possible to focus on your wellbeing.
