The walk begins and ends in the Wynwood area. Your confirmation email will have the exact meeting point details along with a map, and 24/7 phone number.

Tours operate rain or shine, but in the case of inclement weather, your docent will modify the tour so more time is spent indoors. It never hurts to have an umbrella on hand.
