Are Tasty Tours appropriate for children?
Tasty Tours are not recommended for children but you know your child's behavior and attention span. Whether to bring your child is ultimately up to your discretion, but please note that ALL CHILDREN, ages 3+, need a paid ticket. We assume that if your child is below age 3 than they will not be participating in the food tasting portion of the tour or that they might be sharing food with a parent. Therefore, for children below age 3, no ticket is required and there will not be a food portion dedicated to this child. If you'd like food for your child under 3, then please do purchase a ticket in advance. Either way, please INDICATE WHEN YOU SIGN UP WHETHER YOU ARE BRINGING A CHILD ON THE TOUR, SO THAT OUR TOUR GUIDE CAN BE PREPARED. Please also note that strollers are not advisable on the tour, due to the many narrow sidewalks that we walk on and the possibility of steps. If you have further questions pertaining to tickets for children, please contact us.
