COVID Protocols

Beginning February 15, 2022, specific DC public businesses will require all patrons aged 12 years old or older to show proof that they have received two doses (or one if applicable) of the COVID-19 vaccine before they are allowed entry. Establishments must visibly display signage informing patrons that proof of COVID-19 vaccination is required to enter indoors. In addition, those age 18 and older must show a state or federal photo ID. These requirements includes all indoor food and drink establishments.

In addition, all Smithsonian visitors ages 2 and older are required to wear face coverings indoors, regardless of vaccination status. Face coverings should fit properly, covering the nose, mouth, and chin with no large gaps on the outside of the face, and they should have at least two layers. Face shields are not permitted as a substitute for a face covering but may be worn over a face covering or mask. Bandanas, single-ply gaiters and face coverings, and masks with an exhalation valve are not permitted.

Tips for Perkiomen motorcoach drivers and tour escorts are not included in the price of this tour. We feel that these gratuities should be extended on an individual basis and dictated by the level of service provided.

Motorcoach seating is assigned at the time of reservation but can not be guaranteed. Although we do our best to keep each traveler in the seat assigned at the time of reservation, there are times that it is necessary to move seat locations. Please be sure to verify your final seat number(s) with the driver at the time of boarding.

To fully participate in this tour may require extended amounts of walking. There may be steps, inclines, uneven surfaces or extended periods of standing. Participants with physical limitation should take this into consideration.
