Pickup is at a central location where all guest meet. This can be at a residential location or business. We highly recommend that this location is close and has easy access to the expressway, allowing for more flexibility and the appropriate amount of time to the tour itself.
We will target to arrive at least 15mins prior to departure for loading of guests and materials for your tour (coolers, celebration balloons, etc.)
Return will be at the exact same location as pickup. We appreciate guest remove all items (personal and trash) from the vehicle upon return.
Depending on pickup/return location and traffic during the day of the event, transit time to and from winery locations can range from 1 hour to 2 hours. To make the day efficient, there are no intermediate stops other than stops at the wineries, so guests should plan accordingly.
During transit to and from winery locations, TV and DVD player will be available for entertainment purposes. Guests are welcome to bring their favorite movies (No Blu-ray) along. Depending on availability, other in-transit entertainment (games) could be provided.
Unless pre-planned, wineries tours do not include a stop for lunch. Most wineries have snack options and some have a full menu for food. Wine tour itineraries can be built to include a winery location that serves lunch. Also, the tour can be customized to include a more of a formal “sit-down” location for lunch or an early supper. Additional time can be required if planning for lunch for guest. Guest can bring coolers for their own food/snacks/drinks.
Final Payment – Final payment is due 30 days prior to the day of the tour/event. We have a 72-hour cancellation policy in order to receive a refund. Cancellations made less than 72 hours in advance will not be refunded.
