Horse carriage transportation for tours is available for prescheduled tours of 6 or more. The price I'm currently able to negotiate for carriages is an additional $95 an hour (including minimum tip) for 6 persons per carriage, which will be divided by the size of group. I am able to arrange for up to 3 carriages with tours, holding up to 18-20 persons, if requested.
Walking tours last from 60-90 minutes, depending upon content and size of group. Cemetery tours limited to 30 persons. Note cemetery tours are not "haunted" tours, but discussion of various cemetery symbolism and burial customs.
The tavern tour lasts 90-120 minutes, depending on group size and liveliness! Must be 21 to enter taverns.
Details of the cholera epidemic may disturb impressionable children or children under 10 (Ohio River walk and John Paul Park).
Tours go rain or moonshine, except in severe weather.
All tours are guided by myself in historic clothing and by lantern in the evenings.
