What can I wear? Do I need walking shoes?

You can dress as you like! We do recommend wearing comfortable shoes as tour is an outdoors, walking experience.

We absolutely do! We can accommodate a variety of special requests (family reunions, Birthday parties, out of town guests, corporate, conventions, festivals, parades, grand openings and more).

What should I bring with me?

You should bring with you a camera and a small bottle of water. When it’s really hot out, we recommend an application of sunscreen on exposed parts of the body and a lightweight pair of sunglasses. During the cooler seasons it’s important to wear and an extra layer of clothing and consider bringing gloves. If it looks like rain we can provide you with a plastic rain poncho.
