Our food tasting and cultural walking tours were 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.
