Frequently Asked Questions

Where will your Solwayconnections tour guide meet you and your group?

The time and location where your group will meet their tour guide will have been discussed as part of the tour booking process.  A suitable Solwayconnections guided tour itinerary for your group will have been devised from the agreed meeting location.

What do we do for our lunch on full day tours?

Our day tours will take you to a local seaside or market town where there are a number of different cafes and food outlets which offer food suitable to meet the needs of different dietary requirements. You will have time to purchase your lunch and spend a little time exploring before your transport leaves to take you to your next heritage destination.

What should I wear?

Solwayconnections guided tours using vehicles are designed to include visits to different heritage sites, gardens and natural sites. Some of the sites are a short walk away from the parking area and have a few steps at their entrance. Some of the footpaths at sites can also be a little uneven in places. We therefore advise people to wear outdoor shoes with soles that are suitable for walking on uneven surfaces. We suggest you also bring a waterproof jacket with you. During the summer months you may wish to wear your insect repellent when visiting natural habitats.

Solwayconnections guided walking tours visit outdoor sites with uneven ground and in some instances hills.  It is therefore recommended that clients wear out door walking shoes with soles that are suitable for walking safely on uneven ground and up and down hills.  Please get in touch if you have questions about what to wear on one of our guided tours.

Solwayconnections guided tours adhere to the uk Government  and national tour guiding Covid 19 safety guidelines as outlined in the next column.  Should visitors choose to wear face masks or visors they must provide their own PPE and hand sanitizer for their own personal use during a tour.
