Keep in mind that the tour group will stop at bars along the tour route to provide the guests with restroom breaks and the opportunity to purchase adult beverages and soft drinks if they would like. These stops are offered as a courtesy. If you have a child with you, some bars allow children inside however some do not. The tour guide will be more than happy to stand at the door with the child to allow the adult the chance to grab a drink. We do everything we possibly can to provide a laid back environment for our guests. We want all our guests to be happy & enjoy themselves during our tours. Our goal is to provide a happy memorable experience for everyone.
Please note that we cannot control when and where locals decorate. Rest assured that we will provide the best of the best! There are some seasons that the decorations are not as elaborate as others. Keep in mind that the 7 pm departure that is offered provides guests with the spectacular Christmas lights as they are not as easily visible during the daytime tour.
