Key points to consider

• Plan your food and drink -  Tours and tastings are not included in your ticket price.  These can be booked directly with the venues in advance or in person on the day. If you’re on a schedule, we recommend booking in advance to ensure a spot at your preferred time. 

• Be prepared - We’ve mapped suggested walking trails between our partner vineyards and breweries. Please note that walking trails may be muddy or have other hazards, like long grass, so wear appropriate clothing and footwear if you intend to enjoy the countryside. *See disclaimer below.

• Be on time - Please make sure to be at the bus stops 5 minutes before a scheduled departure. Our tour buses won’t wait for you!

• Stick to a tasting - Alcohol is not to be consumed on or near to the tour bus. At Sussex Wine Routes, your safety and that of our drivers is paramount. If any passenger is seen to be intoxicated, this may result in the removal of that person from the bus at the next stop. 

• Group numbers - for groups of 8 or more guests we require prior notification. Grouos of 8 or more attempting to join a Sussex Wine Routes tour without prior arrangement, will not be permitted to travel.
