When tours start back up April 2021, we will employ the following practices:
- Keep group sizes a minimum of 4 people and maximum of 10
- No mixing of groups (individuals will be friends, family or colleagues of each other)
- Masks required
- Social distancing when passing other groups and in restaurants
- Route and restaurant changes may be made according to best safety practices at the time of the tour
A 3-hour guided city tour, enough food to replace lunch or dinner, all taxes, restaurant staff gratuity, and take-home swag bag.
- Drinks (unless you opt for the 2-beverage pairing when you book your tour). If you would like a beverage other than water, you may order and pay for it at the time of service.
- Tour guide gratuity is not included and is much appreciated.
Tickets are fully refundable up to 48 hours before tour start time. Within 48 hours of tour start time tickets may be transferred to another date but are not refundable.
A little over a third of the tour consists of walking or standing. Sit-down stops are spaced 1-2 blocks apart during the tour. The longest stretch of walking may be back to your car, depending on where you park (we give parking recommendations when you book your tour).
Tours are held rain, shine, or snow. Check the weather forecast and bring appropriate accessories. Wear comfortable clothing and footwear. Instead of a big bulky purse, condense cash and conveniences into a smaller “tour friendly” version.
Dietary restrictions are accommodated if known in advance. Be sure to indicate specific dietary concerns when registering, or at the very latest, 24 hours before tour start time. Do not wait until a plate is put in front of you to voice preferences or allergies. On-the-spot accommodations cannot be made.
Sort of, but not exactly. Since it’s a walking tour, the route dictates the order of restaurant stops. However, we try to save dessert until the end!
No, that’s taken care of on our end, unless you order something outside of what is served (usually that means an adult beverage).
Yes! If you are happy with your tour, tipping your guide is greatly appreciated. $5 – $10 per person is average – or 15% of the ticket price.
The combined small plate entrees are intended to be enough to replace a meal, and satisfy most. Review photos on this website to get an idea of quantity.
Canton is one of only a few cities in Ohio to have a Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area! We call it DORA for short, and it pairs perfectly with a walking tour! It’s a favorite “bonus” activity for many attendees! Within the boundaries of Canton’s DORA district (luckily for our walking tours that’s everywhere we go), you can order a drink like you normally would, and you can take it outside in a special “DORA” cup at no extra charge! Learn more about DORA here.
We move in and out of buildings, up and down stairs, and through historical corridors that are not suited for wheelchairs or those that have trouble walking.
Tours start promptly at the scheduled time but contact someone in your group or contact the tour guide to find the best location where you can meet up with us if the tour has started. No worries, there are always traffic or work delays. You can easily join us at any point.
Yes! Private tours are popular and easy to put together. It just takes 6 people. Visit our Build Your Group Own Tour page for more information or call 330-495-0929.
