Your London Tours has joined other UK tourist organisations to back a safe consumer mark initiative to promote public confidence as the tourism sector works towards reopening.
The ‘Good To Go’ industry standard and supporting mark means businesses can demonstrate that they are adhering to the respective Government and public health guidance. It means they have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment, and checked that they have the required processes in place.
Businesses across the UK are assessed according to their respective national guidance including social distancing and cleanliness protocols. In England, businesses align with the UK Government’s official guidance for the sector including ‘Working Safely during COVID-19: Visitor Economy’.
To obtain the Good To Go mark, Your London Tours had to show the necessary processes had been put in place, before receiving the We’re Good To Go certificate.
The self-assessment includes specific guidelines for sectors including accommodation, visitor attractions, restaurants and pubs, business conference and events venues and tour and coach operators. There will be signposting to further industry and trade association guidance as required.
The scheme has been developed in partnership with Tourism Northern Ireland, VisitScotland and Visit Wales. It will ensure a standard-led approach across the UK with input from more than 40 industry bodies. This includes the Association of Leading Visitor Attractions, as well as destination management organisations across the country.
Your London Tours chief administrator Jo Bull said: “We are pleased to be able to display the ‘Good To Go’ mark which we trust will give our customers the reassurance they seek when visiting London and the UK. We want them to know they are in a safe (and clean) pair of hands when making Your London Tours their first port of call for a trip to remember.”
