WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE CRAFT BEER TOUR?

The craft beer tour will visit 4 venues and include 10 different beer samples. The size of each taster can vary in size, as we are visiting a number of different breweries. The total amount that this would accumulate to throughout the tour would be approximately 4 pints. We highly recommend having a substantial meal before the tour as only one snack is included. There are plenty of dining locations near the end of the tour and our guide will happily recommend a few options.

WHY DO WE NEED TO PAY FOR BOOKING FEE?

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.
