"Relax and Enjoy the Ride!"  

Do I have to purchase my tickets in advance?
Yes, tickets must be purchased in advance in order to guarantee the date and time you desire. Tickets can be purchased online or by phone with a Visa, Mastercard or American Express.

Is there an age restriction?
Due to the nature of the tour, all participants must be 21 or older, with a valid government-issued ID.

What is a pedicab?
Also known as a rickshaw, a pedicab is a tricycle-driven means of transport. The tricycle in front connects to a carriage-like seating area in back, big enough to seat a few people (but we limit our tours to 3 people and recommend 2 people, for your comfort). You'll have a driver in front pedaling you around town, as you sit back, relax and enjoy the ride!

How many people can each pedicab accommodate? Each pedicab can accommodate up to three average adults. For the sake of comfort, we recommend keeping the pedicab tours to 2 participants per pedicab. If you have a party larger than 3, you'll need to split your party into two separate pedicabs. To purchase multiple pedicabs at once, please be sure to add two tours at the same time to your shopping cart. Please note that you can book up to 3 pedicabs at the same time to accommodate larger groups.

Can we select our own pubs to visit?
Yes! We can either take you to our pre-selected list of our affiliate pubs or you can select 6 of your favorite downtown pubs and we can create the route for most efficiency. Please include during your purchase if you would like a pre-selected pub route or if you'd like to select your own. If you choose to select your own pubs to visit, your pedicab guide will contact you before the pub crawl to note which pubs you would like to visit. Keep in mind the 2 hour limit.

Will there be an opportunity to stop to use the restroom?
There will be multiple locations where restrooms will be available. We highly recommend you use the restroom before departing for the crawl.

Can we bring snacks and drinks along?
Snacks and drinks are welcomed. Personal alcoholic beverages are strictly prohibited. You will have the opportunity to purchase beverages at the establishments we visit.

Will my crawl still go out if it's raining?
The tours will go out in light rain and other moderate weather conditions. The pedicab is covered, so you will be protected from the elements.

How many crawls are available?
We offer crawls 2 times a day. Please check calendar for availability.

Will there be a place to store my belongings?
Yes. There is very limited storage on the Pedicab, however you can place belongings at your feet during the ride.

Do I need to sign a waiver?
All participants are required to sign a liability waiver before taking the tour.Are alcoholic drinks included with the price of our ticket? Drinks are not included in the price of your ticket. Please bring sufficient extra cash to purchase any drinks at the establishments we visit.

Where does the crawl end?
All crawls end at original point of pick up unless otherwise requested.

Are pedicabs handicap accessible?
As long as the individual can climb in and out of the Pedicab, there is no problem with accessibility. Unfortunately, the pub crawl is not wheelchair accessible. Since there will not be any room to store the wheelchair itself on the Pedicab and you will hop in and out of the pedicab during the pub crawl, we do not recommend this tour for individuals with wheelchairs.

How much walking will we do on the tour?
There will be minimal walking to and from the Pedicabs and pubs.

How long will we spend at each location?
To stay on schedule there will be 15 - 20 minutes allotted at each pub we visit.

Are cameras or video cameras allowed on the tour?
We encourage the use of cameras and video cameras on this tour. There are many great opportunities to take photographs of the pubs we visit on the tour.

Is there parking available at the pickup location?
Parking available is available on the downtown streets sides located in the River District or you can pay for parking in the City Garage or Harborside Parking Lot located on Bay Street.

Should I tip my guide?
Gratuity is not included in your ticket price. If you enjoyed your tour, a tip is well-appreciated, but not mandatory.
