1What about dietary concerns?

We can accommodate most dietary restrictions with advance notice. Apologies but we do not offer Kosher options on this tour.

2How much food is served on tour?

The number of stops vary depending on which type of tour you choose. Most folks find that there is enough food to make a meal. Note that the Private Afternoon Tours are lightest on food while Progressive Dinners are most filling.

3What is your cancellation Policy?

Once purchased, tickets are non-refundable, as they guarantee your spot on the tour.  If we cancel a tour for any reason, we will issue a full refund or offer to reschedule your group.

4Can children come along?

Children are welcome. We love kids! If they will be eating on the tour, it will be necessary to purchase a ticket for them. This tour involves approximately three and a half hours of walking and may not be suitable for all ages. Strollers may be difficult to maneuver on the hills, stairs and cobblestones. We recommend a front/back pack.

5What beverages are served on tour?

Stops on the tour may include beer, wine, cocktails, sprits, coffee, tea etc. Water is served on the tour throughout the tour stops. If you plan on consuming alcoholic beverages, please bring your ID.

6What about weather?

A little rain doesn’t slow us down. Tours take place rain or shine. Be sure to check the forecast and dress appropriately.
