Adventurous Appetites Anti-Covid-19 measures.
(Updates will appear in blue: last update 04/07/2022)
Almost all Anti-Covid-19 measures have been relaxed in Spain. As of 5th/6th July 2023 the only remaining measure in force will be the requirement to wear a mask in zones of hospitals and medical centres where there are critical or vulnerable people (i.e. operating theatres, emergency rooms and where there are immune depressed patients)
The general use of masks has been suspended but remains as recommended where people have symptoms of respiratory infection.
HOWEVER, despite this, Adventurous Appetites will continue to monitor the situation and implement basic precautionary measure such as serving food onto individual plates where appropriate.
The whole team at Adventurous Apppetites has managed to stay healthy and we are getting back to showing you our favourite cities and food!! We do however appreciate that the world has changed somewhat and understand there may be some concerns over travelling in the near future. Below we detail how we are dealing with the situation.
We are constantly monitoring the situation and we will be adapting our tours as necessary, to conform to government regulations and in order to ensure the safety of our clients, guides and collaborators as much as we can, while still offering a fun, informative and tasty experience.
Official restrictions are changing constantly. We will attempt to update them here as promptly as possible but please note tours will be subject to the latest regulations, which may differ from those listed on our site.
Health and Safety Measures
All Madrid Community/Spanish Government restrictions will be adhered to.
We will be implementing the Community of Madrid's latest restrictions.
Whilst the Covid situation seems to be improving it is important not to drop our guard. Governments are starting to lift restrictions but Adventurous Appetites will continue to implement the non-intrusive measures we consider appropriate to keep our clients and staff safe.
During this period Adventurous Appetites will be implementing the following measures:
2. Smaller Group Sizes:
Currently groups consisting of travellers from different provenances will be limited to a maximum of 10 pax . (On isolated occasions this may rise to a maximum of 12 depending on whether people book in in 3's or 4's, when permitted by official regulations)
Larger groups can be accommodated if made in a single booking (when permitted by official regulations).
3. Private Groups:
If you want to have a tour limited exclusively to your party, we will be offering private tours subject to a supplement per person. Please estipulate that you would like a private tour when booking.
Private group supplements - 2-3 pax 25GBP pp, 4-5 pax 20GBP pp.
4. Health and Hygiene:
AS OF 28/03/2022 THE REQUIREMENT FOR LIGHT CASES TO ISOLATE IF POSITIVE FOR COVID 19 AND THE NEED TO QUARANTINE FOR CLOSE CONTACTS HAS BEEN LIFTED. IN CASE OF HAVING SYMPTOMS YOU ARE ADVISED TO TAKE AN ANTIGEN TEST (THIS CAN BE PURCHASED IN MOST PHARMACIES). IF NEGATIVE THERE IS NO NEED FOR ANY FURTHER ACTION, IF POSITIVE, SOCIAL INTERACTION SHOULD BE LIMITED (PLEASE SEE LAST PAGE OF MADRID HEALTH LATEST COVID RELEASE)
AS OF 20/04/2022 THE REQUIREMENT TO WEAR MASKS INSIDE HAS BEEN REMOVED. Masks are only required to be worn on public transport and in health centres/hospitals. BOE 20/04/2022
Guides will carry hand sanitizer and will be applying this at regular intervals. They will also offer it to clients.
Guides's temperatures will be monitored and they will not be conducting tours should they have a fever or any other COVID-19 symptom.
Clients will not be eating from the same plate where there is a risk of cross-contamination. Where appropriate, all food will be served onto individual plates or be provided in individual servings.
Clients will be asked to provide their names and contact details so that we have the necessary details to enable track and trace should that ever become necessary.**
We will not be monitoring clients' temperatures on arrival as this is likely to have been done in the airport and in hotels. HOWEVER,
WE WOULD ASK CLIENTS TO ACT RESPONSIBLY - IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING ANY SYMPTOMS POSSIBLY RELATED TO COVID-19, PLEASE ABSTAIN FROM DOING OUR TOURS
**Where applicable this information will be saved for a period of 20 days (this gives us a margin of error as the average incubation period for COVID-19 has been given as 2-14 days and the self-isolation period for people suffering with symptoms has been set at 14 days)
Cancellation, changes and refunds
All tours cancelled due to the Coronavirus have been refunded in full and we have waived our cancellation fees over this period. We will maintain this policy for all Coronavirus related cancellations as long as the COVID-19 situation continues.
Unfortunately due to the rapidly changing situation and government limitations we may be forced to change itineraries without much prior notice. We will try not to make alterations and will let you know about any changes as early as possible but would very much appreciate your flexibility in the current circumstances.
There is an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 in activities conducted in any public place where people are present. We will be implementing a series of measures aimed at reducing risk to a minimum, but COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death and we cannot guarantee or warrant against the risk of infection. By using Adventurous Appetites' services, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
In the interest of the health and safety of guides, fellow clients and bar workers, clients will be required to adopt all COVID-19 measures advised by Adventurous Appetites. Failure to comply may result in ejection from the tour.
IT YOU HAVE ANY ADDITIONAL CONCERNS OR QUERIES PLEASE SEND US AN EMAIL TO: firstname.lastname@example.org
We urge everyone to be responsible and to adopt all measures recommended, in an attempt to slow the spread of the virus and to protect those at higher risk due to advanced age and other underlying health issues.
We hope that we will witness the end of this period very shortly and that we will be able to resume our normal service as soon as possible but in the meantime we would like to thank you in advance for your understanding and flexibility as we adapt to the "New Normality" !
We look forward to seeing you in Spain for a fun and social night out of food, drink, history and culture very soon!
Stay healthy and hasta pronto!!!
The Adventurous Appetites team.
