  1. We love dogs and Helen is a dog friendly town. However, due to health regulations, restaurants cannot allow dogs inside so we cannot allow dogs on the tour.
  2. We also love kids. However, many of our guests look to the tour as an adult get away so we have a minimum age of 11 for the tour. One exception, kids are allowed if you book the whole tour.
  3. Everyone on the tour has to have a paid ticket.

Each of our participating restaurants has something different to offer. We are proud to be showcasing some of the best of Helen.
