What's included in the price of the tour?
From outstanding accommodations, paradise surf spots, private surf lessons, gear (surfboard + wet suit), delicious local food and abundant wine tastings (all meals), our only concern is for you to surf, eat, drink and sleep without a single care and without opening your wallet.
If I book a tour, is it guaranteed to surf?
Are non-surfers welcome on the tour?
More than welcome! Travellers who prefer not to surf can still discover our favourites in a Surf Wine Tours style.
Price includes accommodations, meals, wine and other activities beyond the surfing, so our tour price is the same for surfers and non-surfers.
Non-surfers are welcome to join as “non-surfers,” but should be aware that the focus on these tours will be surfing.
Are children allowed on tour?
We encourage all families to make a Family Surf Tour.
Adults must accompany minors. Our tour guides can help you plan something really special for you and your family, regardless their age or interests.
How do you accommodate varying surf abilities?
On tour there’s always a spirit of fun and adventure. For some, that means stopping for the perfect selfie while others just want to surf hard. Our guide-to-guest ratio is never larger than 8:1 (and often smaller), which makes everyone happy.
If you are an experienced surfer, our guides are happy to take you out for some extra waves. If you are a starter, we won’t facilitate on security issues.
For completely custom surf tours, we recommend a private tour.
How do you accommodate dietary restrictions?
How to book a tour?
As you prefer! You can reach by phone at +351 912 790 020 for questions or to reserve your space on tour.
For tours with scheduled departure dates, you may also reserve your space online. On the page of your desired tour, simply click “Book now”. Once you have submitted your reservation, your space on tour has been reserved. We will contact you by the following business day to finalize the details of your booking and tour preferences. Surf Wine Tours makes all necessary arrangements upon confirmation. All included services are required to be pre-paid in Euros by wire transfer or PayPal.
For scheduled departure reservations made more than 60 days prior to the tour, a deposit of €750 is due at the time of booking. If your reservation is made within 60 days of the tour date, full payment is due at the time of booking. For Private Tours, payment terms vary. Please consult with a Tour Coordinator.
Single Supplement? What's that?
Our surf tours are price based on double occupancy. A Single Supplement is an additional charge that secures a private room for solo travellers. If you are travelling alone and would prefer a roommate, please notify your Tour Coordinator. Although we cannot guarantee a match, we will make every effort to pair you with another solo traveller in order to waive the Single Supplement.
What if I have to cancel or change my tour?
Please refer to our cancellation policy for details.
In the 2020 season, in the event of an unforeseen event and consequently resulting in the impossibility of traveling, SurfWineTours will refund the entire amount paid.
Should I purchase travel protection?
Surf Wine Tours always advise you to enrol in a Travel Protection Plan. It should protect your travel investment, including you, your belongings and your flights.
Can you assist me with travel arrangements?
How can I prepare myself for the tour?
Can I bring my own surfboard?
As fellow surfing enthusiasts, we understand the desire to ride your own surfboard. If you prefer to use your surfboard on tour, you will be responsible for all shipping arrangements and maintenance. You will also be responsible for transport assembly and disassembly as needed. Please contact us for more detailed information.
Can I bring my own surf apparel?
Which surfboard is right for me?
During reservation, confirm your surf level, weight and height.
What kind of support can I expect while on tour?
When you’re surfing our guides are constantly looking out for your comfort and safety.
Off the surfboard, you must enjoy as much as you can.
Our guides speak the language, understand the singularities of local culture, have friends at hotels, restaurants and wineries, and act as your personal paparazzi so you can leave your trip with ready-made memories.
What should I pack?
Surf Wine Tours include time both on and off the surfboard, and we want you to be comfortable in every situation. To make sure you have covered all your bases, see our packing list for suggestions and recommendations.
How much should I tip the guides?
You don’t have to… it’s up to you.
