Our goal is for every Axwild Tours guest and employee to be safe and comfortable during time spent with us. We require all our guests and guides to uphold a high standard of conduct, and to follow the law and community guidelines.
Our guidelines are as follows:
- All parties must agree to abide by our safety policy posted on our website and reservation forms prior to making reservations.
- All guests will be required to practice social distancing while on this tour.
- We have restricted our tours to 20 guests per tour. Parties traveling together are advised to stay together and maintain social distancing standards from other parties on the tour.
- Guests are encouraged but not required to wear face coverings/masks. We will be outside for the entirety of the tour. (Guides will have flexibility regarding the use of face coverings in order to be heard and to assist guests safely.)
- Guides will direct you to proper pedestrian crossings, direct you away from areas which are “off limits”, and ask you stay with the guide while on the tour.
- Axwild Tours assumes no responsibility for physical or emotional injury while on the tour.
Due to the Corona Virus Pandemic, Axwild Tours has been monitoring the coronavirus situation closely and taking action based on guidance from the CDC and local health officials. Our focus is on keeping our visitors and staff safe. We will implement safety precautions to represent the latest city, state and federal guidelines. We open for tours on June 8,2020, (Virginia; Phase 2).
We appreciate your business over the past 20 years. Our success has been due to our loyal customers and dedicated guides. With your help and continued patronage, we look forward to shared time on our tours.

Clean your hands often
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. Visit the CDC’s guide on handwashing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick
- Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.
Cover coughs and sneezes
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
- Throw used tissues in the trash.
- Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
Wear a face covering
- The CDC recommends the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus, and help people who may have it, but don’t know it, from transmitting it to others.
- Cloth face coverings can be made from household items or common, low-cost materials.
Clean and disinfect
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
- If surfaces are dirty, clean them: Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
What to do if you feel sick
- If you begin to develop symptoms, call a medical professional. You should also contact a doctor if you’ve had contact with a person known to have COVID-19, or if you live in or have recently traveled to an area with ongoing spread. Tell your healthcare professional about your recent travel or contact.
- Your healthcare professional will work with your local state and province’s public health department and CDC to determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19.
- Please stay home if you are sick. If you need to see a doctor, work with a medical professional to discuss transportation options. Per the CDC, if you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or suspect you may have it, you should not use ridesharing, public transportation, or taxis.
