Frequently Asked Questions
I've been on tours before where there were way too many people, we couldn’t hear any stories and the stops took forever. How many people do you take on your tour? -- The committment to guests is a guarantee of 12 people or less for Savory Faire tours. By City ordinance, St. Augustine's walking tours are allowed to take up to 25 guests. But your guides feel that too many people takes away from your guest experience, so they self-impose these limits. It can be quite difficult to move a larger crowd in and out of some of the restaurants and still receive the quality of service that you expect and deserve.
We've booked tours before that were cancelled at the last minute because of minimum reservations not being met. What is your policy on this? -- There's really no minimum. These tours will operate with only 2 full ticket participants – so no worries! Sometimes, very small tours end up as some of the guides' and guests' favorites, because they are more like a private tour – it's ALL about you!
What if it rains, will you cancel the tour? -- Absolutely NOT! One of the mottos of your guides is, "There is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriately dressed people." So, bring an umbrella if rain is in the forecast. If the rain occurs as a last minute surprise, the tour guides usually have an extra unbrella or two to loan out. They would only cancel a scheduled tour in the event of severe weather – deadly lightening, gale winds, or subfreezing temperatures (yes, it's Florida, but they don't call it NORTH Florida for nothing!). Some of the guides' best and most memorable tours have occured when jumping over rain puddles! There are no refunds, but in the rare circumstance when a tour is cancelled by the tour guides, you can take the tour on any future date (subject only to availability) and the reservations would be transferable.
Should we tip our guide? -- Tour guides are professionals in the service industry, the same as servers in a restaurant, hair stylists, drivers in a taxi, and valets. To remove the mystery and confusion which comes from not knowing when or how much to tip a tour guide, please allow this suggested tour guide tip guideline - totally discretionary of course and only if you have enjoyed your tour. A recommended tip to your guide should be from $2 – $5 per person, depending on the length of your tour and your interaction with the tour guide. As always, tipping less or more based on your personal experience is completely acceptable.
