Please review our COVID-19 Safety Precautions
Note that the stroll takes place at an in-town resort, includes only one restaurant option, and does not include a cooking demo/tasting or harvesting of wild foods. For more info, see here.
Tours are suitable for all ages and abilities. If your party is less than six people, a private tour is usually only preferable if you are already at an intermediate level or are unable to join a public tour. Otherwise, a larger group tends to make for a livelier tour — plus we find more!

Foraging Tour (3 hours): $75/adult, $35/child; $450 minimum
Child prices are for age 5-11; children under 5 are free.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between the wild food stroll and the foraging tour?
The foraging tour takes place not in town but 15-45 minutes outside of it, lasts twice as long, and includes foraging, a cooking demo/tasting, and an appetizer featuring your finds at one of several local restaurants (free with lunch or dinner purchased separately). The stroll appetizer option is available only at the hotel restaurant (The Vue 1913), open Thursday through Sunday. For more info, see here.
How strenuous are the tours?
We walk no more than half a mile on flat ground, stopping frequently.
Are dogs allowed?
Dogs are welcome, with notice, on our private tours. If you would like to bring your dog, you must let us know when you submit your tour request.
