Yes, advance ticket purchase is required. To maximize your chances of getting the date, time, and number of tickets you prefer, please book well in advance.
We ask that you please wait to shop until after the tour, so that we can stay on schedule and continue with the experiential tour and food tastings in a timely manner.
Please note: some stops (on some of our tours) will include small tastings of locally-crafted drinks, for e.g. 4 oz of local craft beer; at some of these stops, you are welcome to purchase more drinks, at an additional cost.
We recommend that you consider bringing a shopping bag and allow time either before the tour, or, at the end of the tour (after you’ve received some good insider tips), to browse the locally owned stores, food establishments + vendors – to bring some Tbay gifts + goodies away with you!
Stay tuned, as some vendors are planning to provide a ‘Seek’ discount to tour participants!
The tours are held rain, shine, or snow.
However, if there is a significant storm that is effecting safe travel, we will either reschedule, or turn your tour into a ‘gift certificate’ to redeem at a later date.
We advise you to check the weather conditions for your days event, and dress appropriately, including sturdy footwear. In the winter months, this sturdy, warm footwear needs to be appropriate for snow/ice conditions.
In the summer months, we can lend umbrellas (for urban tours) or ponchos (for guided hikes) if you do not have your own.
In the winter months, we recommend you dress in layers, with a (non-cotton) wicking layer, insulating layers of wool or fleece, and a wind-breaker/shell – topped with cozy mittens and a hat of course!
FYI – Please note: even in the summer months, here in Thunder Bay, onshore wind off Lake Superior can be very chilly!
