Just let your driver know at the start of the tour. Most groups stop at three spots (usually bars) for about 15-20 minutes at each stop. For mixer tours, we will stop at three popular bar/restaurants for 15 minutes at each stop. These stops will vary based on the group on board, rider requests and the driver discretion. Some people prefer to stay on board the whole tour, even during the stops, and that is just fine!
How much does it cost?
A private tour has a flat rate of $349/$399 plus tax. Mixer tickets, where you can buy individual seats, are $24/$29 plus tax each. Special events are charged by the hour- plus a drop-off fee if you need to have it transported to your event. Make sure you book your tour well in advance, as we are often sold out on popular time-slots up to a month in advance!
