Customwalks Covid 19 Protocols, updated Oct 10, 2021.
Well, 2021 was another roller coaster ride, thanks to Covid. At the beginning of 2021 national Covid Protocols changed with the status of the pandemic in various countries causing uncertainty for would be international travellers. In the second half of 2021, the protocols changed less as a more stable situation emerged as vaccination rates increased throughout Europe and Covid case numbers came down and the number of hospitalizations from Covid 19 reduced drastically.
I am writing this document from our office in Tuscany, Italy. Here, daily life is very normal and there are practically no restrictions for vaccinated people other than wearing masks in shops, on public transport, and in hotel lobbies. The Italian government has passed a decree in which only vaccinated people or people who have tested negative within 48 hours may travel on public transport, eat or drink indoors, enter museums, or even go to work. Case levels in Italy are 30 per 100,000 of population, and in Tuscany they are even lower at 9 cases per 100,000 people.
In 2021 we ran several tours in Italy, Greece and Spain without any problems or hindrance.
We expect the present protocols for international travel to remain in place for 2022. Please note, the following protocols are not uniform across the European Union countries, but most countries adhere to these types of protocols.
Here are our Customwalks Covid 19 protocols for our tours.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. Everyone at Customwalks wishes you well and we look forward to getting back out on the trail with you as soon as possible.

You can also leave a message, but communication by email is more reliable because during the season we are often on tour, and not in the office.
