We advise you to check the weather conditions for your days event, and dress appropriately.

Are bathrooms available during the tour?

Yes, bathrooms are available during the tour at our selected food-tasting locations in Thunder Bay’s neighbourhoods.  However, we strongly recommend that you use the facilities before meeting up, so that we can stay on schedule and maximize our tastings!

When participating in a guided hike + picnic adventure in nearby natural areas, bathroom locations are limited, and be prepared for more primitive options.  It’s all part of the adventure 🙂
