Q: What is the weather is bad (cold, raining, etc.)?
A: Tours are given rain, snow, or shine. A good portion of our time is spent walking outdoors. However, on our food/drink tasting tours, we do spend time inside establishments, so you are not subject to the elements the entire tour.
Q: WHAT IF I HAVE DIETARY RESTRICTIONS OR FOOD/drink ALLERGIES?
A: Please be sure to 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. All tastings are prepared in advance at each location based on the information you provided to us at the time of ticket purchase. Please be sure to purchase your tickets in advance so that we have adequate time to prepare your tasting substitutions.
Last minute dietary changes on the tour cannot be accommodated. We apologize for the inconvenience. Our tastings are designed to bring you the best of what each renowned food establishment has to offer. In particular, at locations that specialize in traditional, family recipes, there isn’t always a “next best” option we can offer that meets your specific dietary needs.
If you HAVE SEVERE FOOD ALLERGIES please contact us before purchasing tickets for any of our tours.
Q: What if i’m late to a tour?
A: It is a good idea to arrive at the meeting location 10-15 minutes prior to the tour start time. In fairness to the people who arrive on time, we leave promptly at the tour start time. If you are late, contact us so you can find out where to meet-up with us. There are no guarantees you will be able to find the group, as our guides are narrating the tour and may not look at their phones. There are no reschedules or refunds for latecomers who cannot find the group.
Q: HOW MUCH WALKING IS THERE ON THE TASTING TOURS?
A: We’re on our feet for approximately one hour (give or take). We walk at a casual pace and stand in place for a few minutes at various attractions. The streets have a slight incline and you have to walk up small stairs at some of the establishments. Please let us know in advance if you have difficulty walking up a few flights of stairs, and we can make arrangements for you.
Q: ARE GIFT CARDS AVAILABLE?
A: Yes! Gift cards are available in any denomination. Please contact us if you are interested.
Q: Can I book a private tour?
A: Yes, private tours are available and make excellent family parties, bachelor/bachelorette’s, work, and team-building activities. To inquire about a private tour, please contact us directly with possible dates and times.
