We've always accepted expired groupons) We have FREE tours every Saturday and Sunday at 1pm. You do not need to register or make reservations. Because our tours are free, we encourage you to enjoy a flight of cider before the tour so you can decide on which glass of cider you would like to enjoy on the tour with you.
