The Fine Print

Plan to arrive at the Sheraton Imperial, 4700 Emperor Blvd, Durham NC 27703 no later than 730am for coffee and bagels. We meet near the tennis courts, photo above, to the left of the hotel and near the Gym.

We've got a full day, so if you're not on the bus by 8am sharp, the bus will leave without you!

Once payment is made, there are no refunds for any reason except for trip cancellation. However, you can transfer your place to another person with at least a week's written notice to NCMH.

All participants are required to sign a liability release form which will be e-mailed a few weeks ahead. You will not be allowed to participate without a completed, signed form.

Some houses are not handicap-accessible. Participants must navigate stairs unaided and be able to walk for at least a hour at a time. You may stay on the bus at any point if you wish.  Strollers are not permitted inside any houses. 

The tour runs rain or shine. The itinerary and order of trip events are subject to change without notice or refund.

Architects can get self-reported CEU hours if arranged in advance with the AIA.

Unsecured parking is free at the Sheraton Imperial.

To reduce dirt and damage to floors, tour participants are required to remove their shoes (or bring your own booties) at each house.

Food, drinks, and smoking are not allowed in the houses.

Smoking and alcohol are not allowed on the bus.

Drinks, snacks, and lunch are provided on the bus. 

Photos are allowed and encouraged both inside and outside all the houses.
