Our response to COVID-19
Here at Burgh Bits and Bites, the health and safety of our guests and community members is our top priority.
We have been following the guidance of the CDC, WHO, and our Pennsylvania State leadership. Allegheny County is in the Green Phase, and we are reopening our tours as of June 27th. We are implementing new safety measures and following the requirements of the businesses we visit. Our group sizes are smaller, guides will have hand sanitizer with them at all times and masks are required to participate.
We are thinking of our community, our guests, and our partners at this unprecedented time in our world history.
You are what makes our region in Pennsylvania such a special place to live and work.
Flexible booking options and health and safety measures
As a small business based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania we work in direct partnership with community restaurants and food producers whose business is directly impacted by travel and tourism to our region. We understand that with the unknown spread of the Coronavirus/COVID-19, many of you are adjusting your seasonal travel plans. We want you to know about our flexible booking options and our company’s commitment to the health and safety of our guests, our restaurant partners, and our team.
Here's what we are doing:
Monitoring Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidance on the most up to date practices. (The FDA* is not aware of any reports at this time of human illnesses that suggest COVID-19 can be transmitted by food or food packaging.)
Upholding the highest industry standards when it comes to the cleanliness and sanitation practices on our tours and with our tour partners.
Keeping our customers, community, and tour partners up-to-date on our plans and news.
For your comfort and satisfaction:
All tickets purchased through June 30 can be rescheduled for a later date, or refunded in the form of a gift certificate to be used on any future tour with no expiration date.
