Is there parking available?

Yes! The Historic Riverside tour offers FREE parking near the tour starting location. Please see parking options detailed on the specific tour’s description page.

Are children allowed?

We welcome children on our tours, however they must be accompanied by an adult. From our experience, our tours are perfect for children ages 10 and up.

Please note that the tours are 2.5 – 3 hours and involve a fair amount of walking and standing. We ask that parents/guardians who know their child the best, gauge whether a walking food tour would be an activity their child would enjoy.

Children age 3 or younger do not require a separate ticket. Please inform us in the notes section when you purchase tickets if you will be attending with an infant or young child. Please include your child’s age.

Do we only walk around and sample food?

Absolutely not! Jacksonville is a very unique city with lots to offer. In addition to sampling food from local, popular restaurants, your tour guide will provide insights on the local culture, upcoming events and historical facts about the neighborhood you’re exploring.

 

What if I have dietary restrictions or allergies?

Currently, our tours are not able to accommodate any special dietary restrictions.

Do I need to purchase tickets in advance?

Yes, advance ticket purchase is required. Tickets must be purchased by 9am on the date of the tour. Our tours are becoming increasingly popular, and there are limited spots available. To maximize your chances of getting the date, time, and number of tickets you prefer, please book well in advance.
