Transportation

  • Our guides use public transportation (train, subway, bus, etc.) for all our "Day Trips". If you prefer to use taxi or a private car, please contact us first and we can make this happen. Any extra costs associated with transportation other than public transportation will be an extra fee.

  • Walking: Because we use public transportation there IS a lot of walking. You will be walking to and from stations and then walking around destinations. Furthermore, at some times public transportation can be crowded and you may have to stand while riding public transportation.

  • As stated above in "What's NOT Included", transportation costs are NOT included in the tour price. If you want to utilize a different form of transportation other than public transportation (Rental Car, Taxi, etc.), you will pay for those costs.
