FAQs

How much walking is there?

We will climb multiple floors inside the Vessel structure. You will need to wear comfortable footwear to climb stairs.

What is the refund policy?

We get it — plans change. We offer a 100% refund up to 24 hours prior to the tour start time. We also offer rescheduling to another date the tour is running at no extra cost. Please keep in mind there are no refunds if you’ve already rescheduled your tour once.

Plan to show up 15 minutes early. The tour starts promptly, and you may not be able to catch up if you arrive late.

What if it rains?

Our tours run rain or shine. If there’s extreme weather and we have to cancel, you’ll get a full refund.

Are gratuities included?

Tips aren’t expected but are always appreciated by our guides. If you think your guide did an outstanding job, a tip is a great way to show that.
