Childrens fees apply for bookings of 18 years and younger. Under five years free. Some tours have an R18 restriction e.g. Vineyard-Winery cellar doors, Craft Beer/Brewery tours and Foodie tours that involve alcohol.
For children under the age of 7 an approved child restraint seat must be used and be supplied by the customer. If an approved child restraint seat is not available, the tour cannot proceed. Due to the size of the tour vehicle we may not be able to accommodate all customers with a child restraint seat. For example the tour vehicle can accommodate 4 adults however if a child restraint seat is used, the optimum number of adult customers will reduce from 4 to 2 adults. An approved child restraint seat can be hired for the day from Baby on the Move who have offices in Wellington and Lower Hutt. It is the customers responsibility for the hireage, pick up and drop off of the child restraint seat from Baby on the Move. Please refer to the Baby on the Move website for further information: Baby on the Move
Children under the age of 16 years must not be left unaccompanied whilst stopped for visits during tours.
In very rare cases the Remutaka Hill road can be closed due to adverse weather conditions. The Scenic South Wairarapa Full Day Tour, Martinborough Foodie Delights Tour, Full Day Wairarapa Winery Tour and our Half Day Martinborough Winery Tour will be impacted. A full refund will be offered or an alternative tour of a similar or lesser value with Kaewa Tours of the customers choice will apply. If an alternate tour with Kaewa Tours is selected the alternate tour must be taken within 12 months from the scheduled date of the original tour. If you choose not to reschedule your tour for a later date, a full refund will be provided to you. A no cancellation fee will apply in this instance.

We strongly recommend travel insurance for such eventualities.
