The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has triggered an unprecedented crisis and as we try and move forward we take this opportunity to inform you that we are committed to your well-being as well as our employees.
Tony’s Tropical Tours has compiled and implemented new protocols and added procedures covering all areas of our operations to reduce the risk of infection and minimise the risk of transmission by enhancing hygiene protocols, comply with physical distancing requirements by relevant government authorities and to give you the needed peace of mind and have you feel at ease when you travel with us.
Some important new measures and added procedures that we have implemented are:
Driver/guides: All our driver/guides have successfully completed a COVID-19 Hygiene Awareness for Passenger Transport Drivers and are now fully certified by the DRVR Training and Transport Alliance Australia.
Our driver guides have preventative measures in place to ensure your well-being and in the event that any unexpected issues arise on tour, they will act in accordance with government guidelines.
Guests: will be required to provide information such as name, address and telephone number prior to boarding if this has not already been provided by your agent in advance. If we do not have this information, guests will be refused to board. This is a requirement by Australian Health.

Guests will not be permitted to swap seats throughout the tour unless it’s with their partner or family member, once seated and travelling between sites.

Guest are asked to follow hygiene practices by regularly washing of hands and sanitizing when required. We request you use hand sanitizer before you board the vehicle. A face mask is provided for you if you wish however you are welcome to bring your own face mask and your own hand sanitiser.
