Know before you go
- Please inform the guide of any allergies or dietary restrictions.
- The sidewalks of this old neighborhood can be uneven, so comfortable shoes and sturdy wheelchairs are a must!
- Although best suited for ages 5-12, older and younger children may enjoy the tour as well.
- Everyone should bring a bottle of water on the tour.
- You will see several talented street performers on the tour and you may want to have your children take pictures with them. It is customary to tip street performers, so you may want to bring some small bills for tips.
