Q: What other tours do you offer?
A: At this time the Dothan Downtown Tour is the only walking tour we offer. However, we do have more in the planning stages right now.

Q: Can we bring cameras or video equipment?
A: Yes, you can bring cameras and cell phones. Most amateur photographers and some professional photographers have caught some strange things with pictures in the past. We do ask that no videos are done as our guides work very hard doing research to give you the most exciting tour they possibly can so we like to keep it a surprise for the next group. Although, if you get an image you can’t explain we would definitely like to know about it!
Q: If I am running late for the tour, will you wait for me?
A: We strive to always start the tour on time. However, if you are running late, please let us know (using the contact info on your e-ticket) and we will either place you in the next tour group, if space is available, or have one of our staff wait for you for a maximum of 15 minutes, and take you to the tour already in progress. Please give yourself plenty of time to find parking and get to the tour meeting point 15 minutes prior to the start of the tour to check-in!

Q: Can I set up a private tour?
Yes, private tours are available. Most groups, however, decide to attend the public tour for two reasons. First, it is usually significantly less expensive. Second, part of the fun of the tours is interacting with all the other participants who take the public tour.
