Should FoodHop need to cancel any hop due to severe weather, we will reschedule the same hop at a later date.
Are gratuities included in the price for restaurant service staff?
Yes, with the exception of any additional purchases that you may make during the hop. You are free to show our tour guide/driver your personal appreciation with any additional tips.
Are the FoodHop tours appropriate for children?
We like kids of all ages to enjoy FoodHop tours. While some tours may be more suited for children (i.e. pizza hop), if you are bringing an infant or a child under the age of 5 and they are not participating in the tastings, you do not need to purchase a ticket for them. Our shuttles are not equipped with child safety seats, so please let us know if you will be attending with an infant or young child when you purchase tickets. Contact if you have further questions.
Are your FoodHop tours wheelchair and/or stroller accessible?
Unfortunately, wheelchairs are not permissible on FoodHop due to the nature of the shuttle. We can certainly accommodate families with strollers.
How much food is served on a FoodHop tour?
There are generally up to three (3) stops for food tastings and/or locations on each FoodHop. Some hops will have fewer stops while others may have additional stops along the way depending on the nature of the hop. Each restaurant will offer a sampling size of several signature dishes. By the end of the hop, your appetite will be well served!
Are there any beverages served on the hop?
We supply everyone with a bottle of water at the start of the tour. Some FoodHop tours will also feature special alcoholic beverages.
