What’s the Difference Between the 2-hour & 3-hour Private Walking Tours?
The biggest difference is the amount of time we have together. We will see many of the same sights and hear many of the same stories on both tours, however, with more time we can elaborate and experience each in more details and depth. We also do our best to connect you to your interests, so with a longer tour, there is more opportunity to stop in places, grabs snacks / coffee, and explore with greater ease.
Can we book a Private Bike Tour Instead for the Same Durations?
Absolutely! Please reach out to us with your group size and particular interests and we can connect you with a quote for the tour. Prices are generally what you see here plus equipment rental costs. Contact details are at the bottom of the page.
