Thanks for the honest feedback.  I'm glad your kids loved the Cookies & Cream tour.  We try our best to make each and every guest enjoy their tours but sometimes logistics are challenging - especially on Saturdays when it is so busy.

It’s about $25-27 and it’s a 2 hr tour. Yes you would have to make reservations in advance and the bars was 20-30 minutes a piece
