How much walking is there?

At some stops, we’ll be getting off the bus to walk around the neighborhood for an immersive experience. These stops usually last up to 20 minutes.

What is the rescheduling policy?

We understand plans change. You can always change your tour 24 hours or more before you tour. We offer a 100% refund up to 24 hours prior to your tour start time. Within 24 hours of your tour, we would have incurred hard costs and therefore cannot allow rescheduling or cancellation without costs.

Plan to show up 15 minutes early. The tour starts promptly, and you won’t be able to catch up once it begins. Please keep in mind there are no refunds or rescheduling if you miss the tour.

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 included. If you think your guide did an outstanding job, a tip is a great way to show that.
