Additional Tour Info
How strenuous is this walk? This walk covers about 3 miles on foot in a little over 3 hours. The terrain is flat. You’ll be on your feet most of the time, though we will take a break at a coffee shop in the middle of the tour for a bathroom break and optional snacks/refreshments (not included). However, we try to maintain a steady walking pace to cover all the areas of interest. So if you think you might find it difficult to keep up at a moderate walking speed with the rest of the group, please consider a private tour with us, which can be tailored to suit your pace and fitness level.
What About Kids? Our public tours may not be appropriate for young children, as they involve a lot of walking and cover topics geared to adults. Further, some of our tours reference adult content some parents may deem inappropriate for children. On this particular tour, references may be made to duels, death, and terrorism. That said, there are 2 “child” tickets available for each public tour for children aged 12 and under.
Meeting Point: Detailed meeting point instructions will be emailed to you once your reservation has been processed. The tour starts downtown near Bowling Green and ends near the 9/11 Memorial and Museum.
Stops: There will be at least 1 restroom break during our walk. Each participant will also be offered a complimentary bottle of water on the walk. A meal prior to the tour is recommended. During cold or inclement weather, we may visit historic buildings like Federal Hall Memorial Museum, Trinity Church, or Saint Paul’s Chapel.
Are gratuities included? Guide gratuities are not included in the tour price, so if you enjoy your tour, tips are very much appreciated.
