Our Frequently asked questions on our tours

Our guest’s safety is our top priority. We ask all guests to wear a face mask during the walking portion of the tour. Face masks may only be removed while eating or drinking. Our guides wear protective face shields and/or masks to prevent the spread of droplets. Our guides also utilize an audio smart phone app for our guests to download for free and use with earbuds to hear the guide and to maintain a safe distance from the guide and other guests on tour. If a guest does not have a smart phone, they can stand within hear shot of the guide and still maintain acceptable social distancing.  We ask that our guests bring their own earbuds with an inline microphone to have the best experience on our tours. Our guides provide hand sanitizer and wipes for use during the tour.

It is recommended that you wear comfortable shoes for walking and appropriate attire for the weather. You may also want to bring sunscreen and a hat and sunglasses. Please download the Elysium TGS smart phone app —————–>

prior to arriving and bring your own earbuds with an inline microphone.  A bottle of cold water is also provided.

Yes! Please let us know of your dietary requirements at least 2 days before the tour and we will do everything in our power to accommodate you. We will work with the restaurants to provide an alternative food sampling choice.  Please note some restaurants may not be able to comply with requests or options may be limited.  You may also be charged an additional fee for such requests.

All our  tours are 2.5- 3 hours and include a total of 1- 1 1/2 miles of walking. We go at a leisurely pace and stop frequently at restaurants to sample food, seated, and to take part in unique behind the scenes experiences that may require standing. It is recommended that you wear comfortable shoes for walking. Wheelchairs and other mobility aids are welcome and accommodated. A wheelchair rental may be arranged prior to the tour on your own. Unfortunately, we cannot assist individuals with mobility needs so please plan to attend the tour with another full paying guest who can assist you.
