特別導賞團 Special Tours
The “Walk in James Wong: Retrace Wong Jim in Sham Shui Po” special tour are tentatively scheduled to be held on 13 Dec (Sun) and 19 Dec (Sat), 2020. Those who have paid for the cancelled tour in July will be able to secure their seats before the registration is opened to the public. We will announce the details in an upcoming email to the paid guests soon.
「活現黃霑．重行深水埗」七月舉辦時，其中一場因限聚令生效關係而被迫延期。現暫定於 2020 年 12 月 13 日（日）及 19 日（六）重新舉辦該團，已報名及繳費參加七月取消場次的團友，將獲安排優先報團，不另收費，詳情請參閱稍後發出之電郵。剩餘位置將公開接受報名，請留意本公司稍後在社交媒體上之公佈。
We have already obtained the necessary clearance from the Travel Industry Council of Hong Kong, which is authorized by the government to approve exempted local group tours. To fulfil the conditions of this exemption scheme, the itineraries of some tours will be slightly amended in order to include “green spots” specified by TICHK. Itineraries with no “green spots” along or in close proximity to the route are not exempted and will therefore continue to be suspended.
Meanwhile, our online real-time tours will continued to be provided. Tours that are not covered by the exemption scheme will also be offered provided that the number of guests does not exceed 4.
而網上直播互動導賞團仍會繼續運作，未符合本地遊 30 人豁免條件的團種亦會繼續接受參加者人數在四人以內私人包團預約。
防疫措施 Anti-pandemic measures
In line with the exemption scheme guidelines and undertakings, Walk in Hong Kong will implement the following anti-pandemic measures on each exempted tour:
- Carry out temperature check on each guest at the beginning of the tour, and refuse the participation of those who are feeling unwell.
- Require all guides and guests to wear a surgical mask at all times during the tour (except during tastings and meals), and rinse their hands with sanitizer gel or wet napkins from time to time.
- Guests will listen to the guide’s commentary through a wireless receiver system (for hygiene reasons, guests are advised to bring their own 3.5mm jack headphones to connect to our receiver).
- Retain the name and contact details of each guest, and provide them to health authorities when necessary.
Those who refuse to comply with the above guidelines will be asked to cease their participation in the tour.
As a responsible licensed travel agent that cares for the wellbeing of our guests, our staff and also the community, Walk in Hong Kong will also go the extra mile and adopt the following additional measures:
- Remove or reduce food tastings to minimize instances of removing the mask.
- Clean and disinfect each wireless receiver thoroughly both before and after use.
- Keep the number of guests within 15 (as opposed to the allowed limit of 30).
- 導賞員將用無綫收發系統進行講解，參加者建議自備 3.5mm 制式耳筒，接駁導賞員分發的個人接收器，以保障衞生；及
- 將參加者數目限制於 15 人以內。
