FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS – F.A.Q’s
Do I have to book in advance?
Yes please. You can do that by going to our Book Now page. Full advance payment is required to book a space. You will receive booking confirmation by email.
The meeting point is not on your website, how do I find it?
Once you have booked your tour, and have paid, we email you with the time and meeting place details. Each tour is unique, we keep the venues secret and change the meeting points to suit.
How long does the tour last and how much walking is involved?
The tour lasts around 3 hours, during which the group will walk at a casual pace between several venues. Delays may happen for various reasons so please keep this in mind when you’re planning something straight after the tour. Sometimes the tours go on longer just because we are having fun.
How many people will be on the tour?
It is a small group tour with a minimum of 6 to a maximum of 18 people.
In the unlikely event that less than 6 people are booked 72 hours before the tour, it will be cancelled and tickets refunded or offered an alternative date or time..

You will visit 3 venues tasting great food and wine at each stop.
So don’t eat before the tour, as you won’t leave us hungry!

What happens if I arrive late?
Unfortunately we cannot delay the group if you arrive late, nor can we wait for you. If you manage to catch up with us, you won’t be refunded for any missed tastings.
