Absolutely, there is no charge for children under 12. The tour is 90 minutes long and some children have a limited attention span and therefore the tour may not be appropriate for some of them. Parents, who know their children best, should assess the situation individually. Since there is a lot of standing and walking, please consider this when deciding whether the tour is appropriate for your child.
Tickets are usually purchased in advance as they typically sell out ahead of time. To maximize your chances of getting the day, time, and number of tickets you prefer, please book in advance. There are often spaces on tours and you can pay cash at the tour. You can always call us at 518-832-3796 to check on availability.
We do not provide a waiting list. If a date and time is sold out, there is always a good chance that we will add an additional tour on that day. Please email us to let us know what date you are interested in if you do not see availability.
