Question: The Santa Cruz Food Tour starts around 2:30 which is an "in between" time. Should we eat lunch before the tour? How much food is served? Should we make dinner reservations for that night?

Answer: The tour operator recommends eating a normal breakfast and a light snack for lunch. You'll want to come hungry and most people leave full. The tour runs about 3 1/2 hours long so you'll be done around 6pm. This is an eating tour and you won't need to go out to dinner afterwards.

Question: I received a certificate for the Santa Cruz food tour. It's valid for 2 people but the person I'd like to bring is a vegetarian. Will they be able to accommodate him?

Answer: They do their best to accommodate any dietary restrictions and can make substitutions at most of the stops. They will need to know ahead of time so be sure to put the notes in the additional comments field when requesting your reservation.

Question: My buddy has lived in Santa Cruz since college and know the area pretty well, but I thought he would love to take a food tour. Do any locals ever take the tour?

Answer: Believe it or not, more than half of the guests that take the tour are locals and the feedback has been positive. The stops are off the beaten path and they tell little known stories about the area along the way. This is the perfect gift for your friend to find some hidden gems. He'll actually get more out of the tour than most because he can bring his local friends to his favorite stops after the tour and show off what he's learned!

Question: I'd like to buy this tour for my parents but they're not as young and spry as they once were. How much walking is there on the tour? Are there a lot of hills? Will they have any opportunities to stop and rest?

Answer: The tour is on it's feet most of the time but the terrain is relatively flat. There is one steep uphill climb and one long set of stairs they'll have to descend (the equivalent of about 4 flights). Altogether the tour is about 3 1/2 hours long and out of that time there will be three 15 minute breaks.

Question: Is the tour wheelchair accessible?

Answer: Unfortunately, because of the hills and the stairs, this is not a wheelchair accessible tour.

Question: Are beverages included in the tour? Will I need to bring my ID?

Answer: There is one microbrew tasting on the tour (so bring ID) and there will be water available at most of the stops.

Question: Where does the tour start? Is there parking nearby?

Answer: Yes. There is easy parking at or near the meeting spot. Location and contact details will be provided in your confirmation email once your reservation has been booked.
