Generally Yes. IDs will be checked. Please refer to our Compare Page in order to check if the tour is Family Friendly or not.

The Lunch at the Vineyard experience and Sunset Picnic in Tavira are adults only.

What do we do in case of bad weather?

Most of the tours are held rain or shine. That’s how much we love the food! We ask you to check the weather before hand and dress appropriately. And don’t worry, tasting will occur indoors if needed as things don’t taste as good soggy.

What should I bring with me?

You should bring with you a camera and a small bottle of water. When it’s really hot out, we recommend an application of sunscreen on exposed parts of the body and a lightweight pair of sunglasses. During the cooler seasons it’s important to wear and an extra layer of clothing and consider bringing gloves. If it looks like rain we can provide you with a plastic rain poncho.
