FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I have to purchase tickets in advance?
Yes, advance ticket purchase is required. Tours typically sell out quickly. To maximize your chance of getting the date, time, and number of tickets you prefer, please book well in advance.
Can I get a refund or reschedule my tickets?
Once purchased, tickets cannot be refunded or rescheduled because your space is being guaranteed on the tour. Our tours often sell out. No partial credits or rescheduling is allowed for partial attendance, no shows, or late arrivals. It is your responsibility to show up at the right location, on time. The tours depart promptly at the advertised time.
If a tour is sold out, can I get on a waiting list?
We do not provide a waiting list. If a date and time is sold out, there is always a chance that we will add an additional tour on that day. Please email us to let us know what date you are interested in.
Are there any age restrictions?
Children are welcome on the tour, but please bear in mind that some children have a limited attention span and therefore a 90 minute tour may not be appropriate for them. Parents know their children best and should assess the situation individually. Since there is a lot of standing and walking please consider this when deciding whether the tours are appropriate for your child.
Also, the tours require a certain level of physical stamina. We are on our feet for approximately 90 minutes. There are no hills or stairs on the walking tours.
How physically fit do I need to be to enjoy this tour?
