Please read before buying tickets
Tour groups will be kept intentionally small for safety and to assure all can hear and interact with the knowledgeable tour guide. The number of tickets sold will therefore be limited.

For Historians under the age of 6, while you are welcome, remember this could be a fairly long 2-hour walk. Ask your adult to consider whether you would really enjoy the tour.
