RIGHT TO REFUSE SERVICE
We reserve the right to refuse our services to anyone at our discretion. Visibly intoxicated guests will be asked to leave the tour without a refund.
Your experienced tour guide is the only one who decides if a trip is postponed or canceled. We have tours rain or shine or snow, but sometimes it is necessary to wait out a thunderstorm. We rarely cancel. Tours are almost never delayed because of snow--it's part of the adventure! If a weather system poses any danger to a tour, the trip is usually postponed briefly and resumed once the threat has passed.
NO RECORDING ALLOWED
Each performance is protected by U.S. Copyright law. No recording is allowed. Individuals found recording the tours will be removed without a refund and will be immediately referred to local, county, and federal authorities. We prosecute all violators to the fullest extent of the law. This does not apply to photographs or brief videos taken for personal use. Unfortunately, there are unscrupulous and lazy national chains who record tours and rewrite them before claiming the works as original. Fortunately, as solid local citizens, our law enforcement supports us without hesitation.
At the end of your tour, if you feel your guide did an exceptional job, tipping is greatly appreciated. While the amount of gratuity is a personal preference, $5 - $10 per person is a typical amount. Your guide can accept cash or Venmo for gratuities or you can call the office to use a credit card.
