WHY NOT JUST TAKE AN UBER?
Great question! First, we’ve calculated the estimated fare just from our home in Yakima to Cowiche Creek Brewing Company and for just THAT UBER XL ride, it nearly doubled the cost for a HOP ON – HOP OFF Pass on the Little Hopper. For even a group of 3, this is a much better deal. Plus, if you have more than 3 in your group, it’s a great way to keep everyone together. We partner with Think Twice and if at the end of the day you find you have had too much, get the Uber then. So, there you go! Convenient AND inexpensive!
HOW DO I RECEIVE MY TICKETS ONCE I'VE BOUGHT THEM ONLINE?
After you make your purchase, your name will be added to our reservation list. Specific tour information will be included in your online confirmation email.
WHAT'S INCLUDED FOR THE PRICE?
We provide safe, reliable transportation between Yakima Valley’s best craft beverage locations. Bottled/chilled water is available on each tour. Brewery and winery tasting fees are not included. Every craft beverage stop has unique pricing and offers – ask at each stop if tasting fees are waived with purchase.
HOW MANY PASSENGERS DO YOUR BUSES HOLD?
The Little Hopper seats 13-14 passengers.
CAN I DRINK CRAFT BEVERAGES ON THE LITTLE HOPPER?
Sorry, no. For insurance and legal reasons, we cannot allow drinking alcohol on the bus. You are more than welcome to bring closed package alcohol that you purchase at one of our locations, but it must remain sealed while on the bus. Failure to comply with this rule will result in immediate dismissal from the bus. For private tours/charters, there are options for alcohol consumption while on the Little Hopper.
CAN MY PET RIDE WITH ME ON THE LITTLE HOPPER?
Sorry, no. Being in a confined space, we cannot guarantee the temperament of animals or the allergies of other riders. The only exception is fully-certified Service Animals (no ESA).
WHAT ARE THE FOOD OPTIONS WHILE ON THE LITTLE HOPPER?
Although the Little Hopper itself does not have food options, we make sure every route has food options. The schedules vary, so please check with your Little Hopper driver/guide or the craft beverage stop.
WHERE DOES MY TOUR START
Where we welcome you aboard varies with each tour! When making a reservation, you have options for your pick-up location. We can usually accommodate special pick-up locations prior to the start of the tour. Additional rates may apply if not in Yakima downtown area. For private tours, personal pick-up location(s) included.
