Have questions? Here's the most frequently asked.

What do we do in case of bad weather?

The tours are held rain or shine. In the event of inclement weather, we will be able to go inside many of the establishments on the tour. During the winter seasons it’s important to bring a light rain jacket. We advise to check the weather conditions for your day’s event and dress appropriately.

Do I need to purchase tickets in advance?

Yes, advance ticket purchase is required. Events typically sell out quickly. To maximize your chances of getting the date, time, and number of tickets you prefer, please book well in advance.

Is there parking available?

Parking is available at each tour’s starting location. After you purchase tickets, you’ll receive emails with parking suggestions.

What if I have dietary restrictions or allergies?

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 can accommodate your needs.
