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!



What do we do in case of bad weather?

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!
