At some locations you may be required to wear high-visual vests where machinery is operational. Inappropriate footwear and clothing may result in you not being allowed on the processing floor.
By booking with us you acknowledge that participation in all our tours involves inherent risks that may not be present in other tours. These risks include, without limitation, the possibility of injury or death, psychological trauma, loss or damage to property, inconvenience and discomfort.
AUTHORITY OF THE TOUR GUIDE
At all times the decision of the Drink Tasmania Premium Tours tour guide or representative will be final on all matters likely to affect the safety and well-being of the tour.
This includes any decision that the tour leader makes about the on-going participation of a guest on the tour or certain activities that comprise part of the tour.
This includes any person, in the opinion of the tour leader, who is affected by alcohol or other drugs (whether prescribed by a medical practitioner or otherwise).
If a guest fails to comply with a decision made by the tour guide, or interferes with the well-being of the group, then the tour guide reserves the right to terminate this contract and order the guest to leave the tour immediately, with no right of refund.
The matter may be also reported to the Tasmanian Police if deemed necessary by the tour guide or representative. Drink Tasmania Premium Tours are not responsible for any costs incurred once a guest is removed from a tour.
