Walking Tours & Accessibility

Tours are comfortably paced with stops along the way. Although we walk at a relaxed pace, tours may not be suited for those who cannot be on their feet for 1-1.5 hours or with physical limitations which make walking distances difficult. Distances vary by tour, ranging from ½ mile to 1 ½ miles, comprised of sidewalks, cobblestones, steps, boardwalks, and streets; many surfaces are not even or level. Some areas have limited accessibility. Individuals with mobility challenges are encouraged to email or call prior to booking.
