• Is the tour really free?  Yes, though tips are appreciated; 15% donated to local charity.
  • Can I show up and get on the tour without a reservation?   Usually.  However, it is highly recommended you call or text in advance (650) 576-4145 to ensure the tour is running/isn’t full.
  • Are leashed dogs OK?  Yes, but only on the Waterfront tour and only one dog per tour.  Please let John know if you are bringing a dog.  
  • Is either tour suitable for children?   Children younger than 12 would probably be bored. The tours are designed for adults.  I have had teens, however, that said they liked it.  The Funk Zone tour does involve entry into a brewery.  
  • Are infants/toddlers in strollers OK?  Yes
  • Are restrooms available along the tour routes?   Generally, yes, but one should “go” before starting the tour.  
  • Is the route wheelchair accessible?   Only for the Waterfront tour.   If someone in your party is in a wheelchair, please let John know when you book the tour.
  • Could the tour be cancelled if an insufficient number of people sign up?  Yes. The minimum is four people. Should the minimum not be met – and you made a reservation – you will be notified via email.
  • Could bad weather cause a tour to be cancelled? Generally, only if it’s raining.
  • How strenuous is the walk?   Both the Waterfront and Funk Zone tours are easy walks though they are approximately 120 minutes and 90 minutes long respectively. Each tour has 12 stops and you will need to stand for 5 to 8 minutes before the group proceeds to the next stop.  
  • Do the tours end where they start?  The Waterfront tour terminates at the Visitor Center about 1.3 miles from our starting point.  The Funk Zone tours starts and ends at the same location. 
  • Can I arrange a private tour/select a different date and time than that shown on the reservation calendar?   Yes. However, there is charge of $15 per person and a 4 person minimum. Let me know what date(s) you have in mind.  
  • Will you run the tour if less than four people signed up?  Yes, but for a fee of $20 per person with a minimum of 2 people.  If you are from out-of-town, exceptions may be made.  Contact John for more information.
