This section is meant to answer some questions that have continuously come up before, during and after the New York With Weeds tours. They aren’t in any particular order. If your questions are not answered here please feel free to send us an email with your query and we will answer in a timely fashion. This section will be updated regularly with new questions and answers.
Is airfare included in the package?
Airfare, airport transfers and your MTA Transit card are NOT covered in the tour package.
Is there a lot of walking on the tour?
We do our best to schedule events that are close walking distance from hotel and / or subway stations. There is however a healthy amount of walking involved. If you have walking / mobility issues, please note you are more than welcome to take taxi cabs.
How do we travel around New York?
We travel around New York using transit.
Are we escorted back to the hotel after the event is finished?
It is the responsibility of the host to make sure that anyone who is uncomfortable travelling without a guide has an escort back to the hotel after the event is over.
Are food, drink, cover, tax and tip covered for the events?
Once the itinerary is complete, the participants receive a copy of it and it states very clearly what is included. Generally speaking ALL covers, dinners, taxes and tips are covered unless otherwise stated.
If we decide to NOT attend an event on the tour do we get a refund?
No, there are no refunds on the tour. We make every effort to ensure that there is ample free time for you to tour the city, see a Broadway play, etc.
What kind of music will we be hearing on the tour?
Host Cory Weeds tries to present an array of musicians, instruments and formats. If you are familiar with Cory and The Cellar you know that the musical tastes are in the ‘straight ahead’ vein. Again, if you like music that is more adventurous, you have a liking for vocal jazz, blues or latin music there is lots of free time in which you can seek out events that satisfy those tastes.
