Hi Kim,

There's only one price for the tour, so I'm not sure who you were speaking to that said they didn't pay for lunch, it's all wrapped into one price and there's no option on our site for 'no lunch' tickets. Would you happen to know their name, I'm just trying to figure it out. Thanks for the review, we love to hear your feedback.
