Can Children join the tour (with an adult)
Yes & No,
Yes on weekday tours and off season weekends. We of course have to consider other people who may have already booked and we look at each situation case by case. Just email us to discuss.
The charge for children joining are:
- Children under 5 years are free
- Children 6-12 years are half price
- Children 13 years & over are normal tour price.
No: When it is a weekend during peak times (school holidays and long weekends) we would prefer children not to join as our demand is high and with limited availability. If you really would like your child to come along - then it would be full tour seat price during these peak times. We do not really recommend children joining the beer and wine tour as it is designed more for adults in mind.
