WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE CRAFT BEER TOUR?

The craft beer will visit 3/4 venues and include on average around 7 samples of beer. Each sample is the equivalent of a small glass of beer. The total amount that this would accumulate to throughout the tour would be approximately 3 pints. We highly recommended having a substantial meal before the tour as no food is included. There will be an opportunity to eat at the end of the tour and our guide will happily recommend a few options. During the tour you will have the opportunity to purchase salty snacks from the venues.

I AM TRAVELLING WITH MY FAMILY, IS THE TOUR OK FOR INFANTS/CHILDREN?

As the emphasis on this tour is on alcoholic beverages, this tour is not suitable for families with children under 18. However our food tour is child and family friendly and a great option for children over 6.

I DON'T DRINK ALCOHOL. CAN I BOOK YOUR TOUR?

As this tours emphasis is on alcoholic beverages, this tour would not be suitable for anyone that does not drink alcohol.

CAN I GET FOOD ON THE TOUR?

We strongly recommend purchasing our Food Upgrade to accompany your drinking during the tour. Failing that, there will be an opportunity to eat at the end of the tour at a sustainable market with many, many international food options available to purchase independently. Our guide will happily recommend a few of these. During the tour you will have the opportunity to purchase salty snacks from the venues.

The booking fee that you have to pay is up to our ticket provider and we can't change it. All our clients need to pay for it upon booking. The booking fee charged contributes to the cost of the ticketing system to provide an excellent service to our customers.

Foreign Transaction Fees

A few banks have charged their customer an extra fee while booking with us (this isn't the booking fee but another fee added by the bank). We think this is unfair, if this happens let us know by showing us in your bank statement and we will refund this fee as a gesture of good will.
