FAQs

How much walking is there?

Guests should be prepared to walk just over half a mile. Comfortable shoes are recommended. If mobility is an issue, please arrange for a private tour.

Are vegetarian or other dietary options available?

We can accommodate vegetarian and vegan diets but not gluten-free at this time.

Are drinks included?

All the food will be served with water and, at times, a non-alcoholic beverage.

 

Where can I park?

There is metered parking along the street throughout the area.

When should I get there?

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.

What is the rescheduling policy?

We understand plans change. We offer a 100% refund or the option to reschedule 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.
