FAQs

How difficult is the hike?

Please be prepared to walk up and down a total of 163 stairs on this trip. Although we don’t travel a lot of distance, some of the terrains are quite steep.

Can I bring children?

Yes, however, if you bring a minor with you, you must ensure that they can participate entirely in the trip. Small children will need to be carried since strollers cannot access the tiled stairs.

What is the rescheduling policy?

We are aware that plans might change. You may easily change your tour up to 24 hours before departure. We provide a 100% refund up to 24 hours before the start of your tour. Within 24 hours of your tour, we would have incurred hard costs and therefore cannot allow rescheduling or cancellation without costs.

What if it rains?

Our tours go on rain or shine, so please check the weather forecast before you go. If we have to cancel due to severe weather conditions, we will give you the option to reschedule or get a full refund.

What about gratuities?

Tips are always appreciated, but they are never expected. They’re an excellent way to express your gratitude and tell your guide that they did a fantastic job.
