Our tours are moderately paced and will not stop for rain, cold, sun, heat, or humidity. No matter what the weather brings, the food will taste great and the adventure will continue. On rainy or very cold days, we will use indoor space as much as possible. We do advise you to watch the forecast and dress appropriately and bring gear that will help you be prepared for the weather that may come (umbrellas for rain, sunscreen and water for sun/heat, and jackets/scarves and gloves for cold weather, etc.). The more comfortable you are, the better you will enjoy the tour. For severe weather conditions, the decision will be made on a case-by-case basis as to whether the tour will continue or a different solution will be provided.
While there are areas of free parking in the downtown Hot Springs area, it may be difficult to find an area to park during peak season. Specific parking information will be provided after purchasing your tickets in the follow-up email.
