FAQ

What we are doing in the COVID-19 World?

Currently we are not offering tours for April 2020.  We are trying to encourage people to stay home. We are limiting booking on our Summer 2020 tours to a maximum of 6 people.  We want to continue to practice safe distancing and sidewalk sharing and promote the best experience for our guests by offering smaller history tours. The ghost tours in October are still capped at 13 guests.

What is your policy if there is ice or snow?
It is not safe for us to operate tours on slippery streets. We will refund your tour costs.

Will you refund a tour if it is 100 degrees?
If there is a heat advisory, that means a period of hot temperature expected by the local/national weather service. This can create a situation where heat illnesses are possible and it is recommended to stay out of the sun. Slabtown Tours LLC will try to reschedule the tour for interested gets later in the day on the same Sunday. If the air quality is also unhealthy see next bullet point.

Do you lead tours if the air quality is bad? We ask that you please evaluate the air quality for you and your family. Your health is our top priority—so if it works for you to be there, we will be there too, otherwise let’s try to reschedule.

What do I do if I can’t make it to the scheduled tour?
There are no refunds for no-shows, but if you cancel before the start of the tour, you can reschedule for another date. If you need to cancel, call 503.206.4676 or e-mail: [email protected]. If you are running late for a tour, text 971.302.3926.
