Terms & Conditions
These are the terms under which we offer The walking parrot tours. By registering and paying your deposit for a Tour, you are entering into this Participant Agreement with us. Please read these terms carefully before making a deposit or payment for a Tour.
The FREE WALKING TOURS by The Walking Parrot were for the enjoyment of individual travelers. The tours are ran on a tips-only basis, with no upfront cost to join the walking tour. Although it is not mandatory for individual travellers to reserve their place, we strongly advise doing so.
In situations where tours reach the limit, (we hope this does not happen) and we are not able to open another group, on-line reservation will give you priority over anyone waiting on the meeting point. Just present your ticket to the tour manager on the spot 15 minutes before the start of the tour.
Groups of 10 or more travellers who wish to take part of any FREE WALKING TOUR are required to pay a per-person fee in order to participate and secure a guide. Our FREE WALKING TOURS are intended for small groups and individuals who are visiting the city.
Groups of eight or more persons are required to book for the appropriate number of people online when clicking Book Now on our FREE WALKING TOURs page or contact us to schedule a private tour which is the only way to guarantee your group will travel together with a private guide.
