    You will need to print a paper version of your booking voucher.  We're working on changing this; but, at this time, no refund can be given for customers without a printed copy of their voucher.

    So there’s no last-minute rush, please arrive at the start point 30 minutes before the tour starts to guarantee ridership.

    Once the tour departs, you cannot join along the route.

    You will be riding in an open-top, double-decker bus unless there is inclement weather, in which case we will try to switch up and provide a closed-top motor coach.
