No, there are no seat belts on the bus. No babies are allowed on the bus. No refunds will be issued for tickets purchased for small children.

You can purchase tickets for our tours 2 ways: online or over the telephone. Buying tickets in advance is the only way to guarantee seating. Reservations are strongly suggested, as most tours do sell out. Tickets can be purchased at the time of boarding if seating is available.
Seating is on a first come first served basis. If you have a ticket you have a seat and there isn’t a bad seat on the bus. If you have a group of 6 or more, arrive at least 30 minutes before departure time or call the office to make prior seating arrangements. If you do not make prior arrangements or arrive early there is a chance your party will be split up.

I came from Boston to visit my friend that just moved down here. We had an awesome time. Brandon was hysterical. We were laughing the entire time! Plus we didn't realize there was so much history in Durham!
