Get Directions

Have questions? Here's the most frequently asked.

Do I need to purchase tickets in advance?

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.

Are the food and drink tastings included in the price?

Yes, all tastings of food + drink (as described for each tour under ‘What to Expect’) are covered with your ticket purchase.  Additionally, ‘Seek’ provides a minimum of 18% gratuity to all restaurant servers.  If you desire additional drinks or food during any of the stops beyond what the tour offers, there will be opportunities for you to purchase these at your own additional expense.  We do however, recommend that you wait until the end of the tour, so that you don’t fill up too soon and miss out on tastings planned for you!



Can I shop while on the tour?

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!
