Have questions? Here's the most frequently asked.

What should I bring with me?

You should bring closed, comfortable shoes for the tour as it will make it easier for you to balance on the skateboards.

In the warmer months of the year we recommend that you bring a cap, sunscreen and some water as it can get quite hot – during the colder months, bring warm clothing.

Is there parking available?

Yes, there is street parking available at the meeting point of the tour – however, it is used entirely at your own risk and we encourage you to rather use Ubers to and from the tour.
