What To Bring & Expect Page Insert Tour Grand Central Market


Our priority is to provide a safe and comfortable atmosphere for our guests and guides on these outdoor walking tours. Because guides will not be masked when telling stories, and because different people have different levels of risk tolerance, we have strict mask policies for attendees. Your understanding and cooperation are appreciated. These simple rules are being implemented for the benefit of all attending. Anybody not abiding by these rules will be given one chance to shape up, then asked to leave the tour if it happens again. There are no refunds or exchanges for anyone removed from a tour for violating the rules.

BE PREPARED: This is a walking hour lasting 2½ to 3 hours, and we will have some elevation changes.  Be prepared to walk up a flight or two stairs at a time. Wear comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen, a hat and a medical-grade mask. Bring your smartphone so you can view the tour slide show. We will have a cooler with cold water, and you’re encouraged to bring a full water bottle. A restroom will be available at the start and end of the tour. If you need more information about what to expect, please email us.

MASKS: Attendees must wear a medical-grade mask (i.e. N95, KN95, KF94) at all times, unless eating or drinking, when we ask that you physically distance from anyone not from your household. Masks must be worn properly, covering mouth and nose completely, and not have any exhalation valves, vents or holes of any kind. Bring your own mask and put it on before tour check in.

SOCIAL DISTANCING: Please maintain physical space from anyone not from your household when walking with the group or at tour stops.

VACCINATION: We do not require proof of vaccination for outdoor walking tours.
