Want more details about my tours or need to know what you should bring or wear so that you are comfortable? Check here first. If you don't find an answer to your question, go ahead and email or call me.
Do I have to purchase tickets in advance?
Advance tickets are highly recommended on my public tours to ensure availability of space. You can book your tickets online using a credit/debit card or call me and I'll add your booking myself.
How do I schedule/pay for a private tour?
Do you cancel for bad weather?
I leave it up to my guests to decide if the weather is too much for them to handle. If you have bought a ticket for my public tours or scheduled a private or group tour with me, I will not cancel it except in truly extreme weather conditions.
Where do the tours start and where do they go?
I will start a private tour at whatever location is convenient for you. For my public tours:
- Both the Slo-vannah Saunter and Lightly Sauced meet in the NW corner of Telfair Square, direclty across from the Telfair Museum of Art
- The route for the Slo-vannah Sauter is not set and can vary. Lightly Sauced ends at The Pirates' House restaurant.
Are there restrooms along the way?
Using the restroom before the tour is highly recommended as public restrooms are not easy to find downtown and business owners reserve their restrooms for the use of customers. However, a bathroom break can always be found if sought!
Are your tours handicap accessible?
I have had people with all kinds of disabilities on my tours and it has never been a problem. It is a policy of mine not to go faster than the slowest member of my group. We also take many opportunities to stop and relax on the many benches that grace the squares downtown. Consider scheduling a private tour if you want total control over the pace.
Should I bring my kids?
You are the best judge of what your child can handle, but I do not recommend tours with a runtime longer than 1 1/2 hours, as I have found youngsters tend to tire out easily. My 1-hour and 1 1/2-hour private tours are a great option for families with little ones on the go (or hard-to-impress teenagers). I also do not charge for children younger than 10 on any of my tours, with the exception of group bookings.
Will we go inside any historic buildings?
What do I need to bring on the tour?
You'll probably want your camera. It's also a good idea to bring water and wear sunblock/a hat/bug spray almost any time of the year. Make sure you are wearing clothes you can move comfortably in and shoes that are good for walking.
