  • Are leashed dogs OK?  Yes, but only on the Waterfront tour and only one dog per tour.

  • How strenuous is the walk?   Both the Waterfront and Funk Zone tours are easy walks; 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.  Most stops are in the shade.
  • Do the tours end where they start?  The Waterfront tour begins at the Harbor and terminates at the Visitor Center about 1.3 miles from our starting point.  The Funk Zone tour starts and ends at the same location (120 State St)
