What about weather?

Tours go out rain or shine. If there is severe weather we will cancel a tour and all tickets will be issued a rain check for another tour. If you prefer not to go out on a tour because of unsavory weather, we will be happy to issue you a rain check.

Are tours handicap accessible?

If you’ve been to our historic area and navigated the sidewalks and curbs, we’d love to have you join us. We can’t say whether the route we will take is 100% accessible for your particular situation, but please contact us directly so we can better understand your needs.

Can I bring alcohol?

No, but you may purchase drinks in a “McDonough carry cup“.

Alcohol is not allowed in the middle of the square.
