RSA Policy & Behaviour

TWTT is dedicated to providing responsible service of alcohol to our guests. We do not condone excessive or binge drinking in anyway.

At TWTT, we have a zero policy to lewd, drunken or inappropriate behaviour while on one of our tours. Any guest that is deemed to be intoxicated before the start of the tour will not be allowed entry to the tour vehicle and will forfeit the tour.

While on the tour, the authority of the tour guide / bus driver will be adhered to, and should the guide / bus driver feel in any way that you are acting inappropriately or acting in a manner which will impact the enjoyment of the other guests while on the tour, that said person will be ejected from the tour, and will forfeit the tour fee.

As this is a tour designed with the consumption of alcohol in mind, then any person that looks under the age of 25 must supply evidence if asked to verify their age, and the guest/s must at all times adhere to the local, state & federal laws that apply in that given area.

It is the guest's responsibility to carry at all times a valid passport, driver's license or proof of age card.

Any alcohol purchased on the tour must remain in the vehicle and not be consumed or opened outside of a licensed area, which the vehicle is not.

You are responsible for your own behaviour. Any legal action taken against the said person or against Terroir Wine Tours Tasmania because of said guests actions will remain the sole responsibility of that person.

We do not recommend driving after one of our tours. Please organise a designated driver or have other transport options to driving yourself after one of the tours.

A minimum cost of ($250) will apply to any spillage or damage on one of our coaches. TWTT reserves the right to charge your credit card without your authorisation to recover our costs for the said damage.

*Every person that books a tour, event trip or experience with Terroir Wine Tours Tasmania automatically accepts and agrees to these policies.

Booking Policy

Due to the nature of the tours, once payment has been received, then no refund can be offered inside of 24 hours to you as our guest if you are cancelling yourself. We can transfer the value to another day or impart the value to a Gift Voucher for use on any of our other tours.

All bookings are assumed to be confirmed 24 hours prior to the booking start time unless contact has been made to organise a transfer of value to another day or a value in the form of a Gift Voucher to use on another tour.

If any tour or experience needs to be cancelled by TWTT then a full refund will be offered to the guest with TWTT’s apologies that day or by the end of next week.

All decisions of the guide or bus driver in matters of payment remain final and at the discretion of the guide or bus driver for that tour.
