  • What about taking children/adolescents on the tour?

    Our food tasting and cultural walking tour was developed with food and history lovers in mind. While we do offer a child ticket, the tour is three hours long. Some children have a limited attention span, can be fidgety and may not fully appreciate the tour. It is possible that their disinterest could interfere with the exciting experience that Taste Frederick has carefully crafted for you. However, some children and adolescents may love the tour. Parents, who know their children best, should assess the situation individually and decide whether the tour is appropriate for your child. Please note that infants or small children who will not be participating in the food tastings do not need a ticket, but please let us know they will be attending with you by including a “Message to the Seller” when purchasing your tickets.

  • Are walking tours given in bad weather?

    All of our tours are held rain or shine. In the event of inclement weather, we will be able to go inside many of the establishments on the tour. We will not be outside for the entire 3 hours. You should still dress appropriately for the day’s weather conditions. Before purchasing tickets please be aware of the possible weather conditions for that time of year.

  • Can I shop on the tour?

    We ask that you wait to shop until after the tour so that we can stay on schedule and continue with the tour and food tastings in a timely manner. We strongly suggest you allow time at the end of the tour to return to your favorite locations and/or stores.

  • How should I dress during a tour?

    We recommend casual, comfortable, weather-appropriate attire.

  • How much walking is involved? Is it a fast-paced tour?
