As our business operates in the context of services relating to walking tours incorporating food and drinks including alcohol we must make you aware of the following special terms and conditions which apply to the contract between us:

Dietary Requirements & Allergens

If you or any member of your party has particular dietary requirements please let us know and we will look to accommodate. There will be no guarantee that requirements will be met if we are not notified at the time of booking.

All the food served on our tours may contain traces of allergens including without limitation nuts, gluten or dairy.  As we work with a number of suppliers to deliver the services and do not produce any food products ourselves, we can take all possible steps to be able to accommodate your requirements but if our suppliers cannot offer to meet the requirements then we may be unable to accept your booking. 

We cannot accept any liability whatsoever for failure to accommodate your requirements if you do not notify us of them at the time of booking.  We will outline the options available to you which we have been able to identify to facilitate your booking, however in doing so we in no way take responsibility for ensuring these options meet you individual requirements and you would decide to proceed with the booking entirely at your own risk.

Food and Menus

Food & Drink Tours Ltd reserves the right to alter or change any menu in case of non-availability of a product or establishment on the tour date.


The law in Scotland requires that no person under the age of 18 is served with alcohol and that any establishment serving alcohol must take various steps to uphold the law, including checking identification to verify age where appropriate (currently if the licensed establishment believes you may be under the age of 25). 

Food & Drink Tours Ltd does not supply any alcohol directly, however we work with suppliers who are responsible for the licensing requirements and we will endeavour to work with them to meet these requirements.  You must ensure that you bring ID to prove age when attending any tour and failure to do so could result in our refusal to continue with your tour booking without any refund being due from us.  We will not condone any adults facilitating the supply of alcohol to those under 18 on our tours and any activity of this kind would be met with immediate termination of the tour and booking without any refund being due from us.  Our licensed suppliers operate with their full discretion on when to serve and to cease serving alcohol and we will support them in any decision made.  Any refusal to supply alcohol made by our supplier will not result in any liability on our part or refund being due.

No alcohol must be consumed before the start of the tour.  No additional alcohol can be purchased for consumption during the tour.  Customers must not be inebriated or seemed to be inebriated or suffering from excessive alcohol consumption from a previous engagement at the commencement of the tour.  If a guide believes you have consumed alcohol prior to the commencement of the tour, our services will no longer be supplied to you and no refund will be given. If a guide believes you to be consuming additional alcohol in excess of the alcohol provided on the tour, our services will no longer be supplied to you and no refund will be given.  If a Guide or Supplier deems your behavior to be unreasonable during the tour, your participation in the tour will be suspended and no refund will be given.

Respectable behaviour is expected at all times and if this is not complied with, your participation in the tour will be suspended and no refund will be given.


You must ensure that you are adequately travel the route outlined in the Booking Confirmation.  Unfortunately we are unable to offer additional assistance to support walking this tour so if this is required you must arrange this.  If you are unable to complete the tour for any reason we cannot offer any refund.  

Personal Possessions

As we will be walking and moving between establishments it is important that you are well prepared and take care of your personal safety and personal possessions.  In the event that any item is lost or stolen during the tour we cannot accept any liability or offer any refund.


Photographs and video footage may be taken during the tour for editorial or promotional purposes. These images may be used online or in printed matter. If you do not want images of you or your party to be used please let us know in writing in advance of the tour.
