Get Directions

Have questions? Here's the most frequently asked.

Yes.  tickets must be purchased in advance.  Tours often sell out so we suggest purchasing your tickets early to guarantee availability on your desired tour day.  Tickets can only be purchased with a Visa, AMEX, or MasterCard from our website or by calling. Cash and/or walk-up traffic the day of the tours are not accepted.

The tour lasts approximately 3 hours and covers 1-1.5 miles.    Most of our stops provide seating, however, you will be on your feet between locations and may have to stand at 2 or 3 stops.  We walk at a moderately casual pace and will adjust to what is most comfortable for the group.

Our tours are geared more toward adults, however, well-behaved children may join us with a paid ticket.  The tour is 3-3.5 hours long and involves standing, walking and listening.  Some children have a limited attention span; therefore the tour may not be appropriate for them.  Parents, who know their children best, should consider this and assess their situation individually.

We are unable to accommodate children who are not included in your paid reservation.  All participants are required to have a ticket purchased in advance, even if they do not wish to participate in food tastings.

Please be sure and let us know if you (or anyone in your group) has a dietary restriction (e.g. vegetarian, diabetic, allergy, etc.) when you purchase your tickets. As long as we know in advance, we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
