Worry-free with #GoSafe. GoJo Tours new safety measures.

Tours #GoWithGoJo is worry-free! GoJo Tours has launched a new campaign #GoSafe, to promote our new safety measures and tour adjustments. So guests can feel safe and secure on our tours and activities while still enjoying the full GoJo Tour experience.

Moreover, all tours are available for private bookings. We are adjusting our tour programs so that individuals and small groups can afford to book private experiences and to help reduce concern and nervousness about the outbreak.

Introduction

Dear GoJo Tours Guests, 

At GoJo Tours, our number one priority has and will always be taking care of our guests’ safety. Now as we work to reopen our tours across Thailand in line with government and W.H.O recommendations, we want to ensure that our experiences are the safest they have ever been. 

To meet the new challenges and expectations that we face with COVID-19, the GoJo team is launching a new initiative called #GoSafe. This new initiative is focused on safe social distancing protocols, increased sanitation practices, and modified standard operating procedures. 

The GoJo team has always had rigorous standards for health and safety. In addition to this, the #GoSafe initiative has taken advice from the World Health Organisation and the Thai Ministry of health to ensure all bases are covered when it comes to preventing the spread of COVID-19. Go Safe will ensure that both our guests and team members are confident in the cleanliness and safety of our tours and activities.

We couldn’t be more excited to welcome you on our tours. 

See you very soon!

Thanks for choosing to #GoWithGoJo
