There are currently no COVID-19 measures for guided bike tours in Antwerp. In Flanders, wearing a face mask is still mandatory in a limited number of places, such as in the station or at the doctor. Because we sometimes enter buildings on our tours, we’d like to ask you to bring a face mask, just in case.

  • The guide will disinfect his/her hands before and after each tour.
  • At the start of the tour, the guide will explain his/her expectations about safety and health measures during the tour.
