COVID-19 Updates

20/03/2020 Operations Suspended

In light of Victoria and New South Wales being pushed towards lockdown, and rules around Social Distancing being expanded, Running Tours Melbourne & Running Tours Sydney are suspending all operations until further notice.

We will be in touch with all guests who are currently booked on future tours and offer a full refund. We hope you will be able to join us in Melbourne and Sydney sometime into the future.

Please stay safe at this time.

14/03/2020 Response in regards to the Coronavirus situation.

Running Tours Melbourne & Running Tours Sydney wish to advise that our tours will continue to operate through the current COVID-19 situation, albeit with strategies in place to minimise the risk. Our reasons for remaining open is that being in the open environment and being a specialist in small group tours, that the risk is much lower than some other tour activities in Melbourne and Sydney. We are also aware that many of our guests have saved up for a long time to come to Australia and are keen to explore the cities and would do so regardless.

We have however made some modifications as to how we operate our tours:

  • All our tours will now have a 24 hour cut off to allow us to analyse the situation and should the need arise, make adjustments to the tour.
  • The 9am Laneways Discovery Tour in Melbourne is suspended for the time being, with the same tour at 7am a much lower risk option as we are often finished before the city gets busy.
  • Hotel pick ups will not be offered for the foreseeable future with guests asked to meet at the tour starting point.
  • Our team have been asked not to shake hands and high five guests. We don't want to be rude, so that's why we are letting you know now!
  • Our team will carry hand sanitiser to use before, during and after the tour.
  • Our team will not carry your gear including phones, and will not take photos on your phones.
  • A number of other strategies have been put in place, that as the guest, you wouldn't notice!

We have also made a change to our Cancellation Policy, allowing free cancellations up to 6pm the night before a tour.

Running Tours Melbourne & Running Tours Sydney are committed to creating safe work environment for our team members and with the above steps in place, it will also mean a much safer tour for you as well!
