TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND FEES
We want everyone to have a fabulous time. But we have some rules and regulations that you must look over before signing up for a tour or event rental.
First, we need to let you know that we are a restored Antique Tour Bus and not a rowdy party bus. The experience is about the wines and scenery of the area you have chosen to tour. The wineries and I want you to have a great time, but the wineries prefer groups and individuals who are interested in learning a little about their wines while enjoying a fun and relaxing afternoon of tasting. If you are looking for a rowdy party bus, we are probably not the right venue for you.
When booking a tour or event rental you must review and consent to the terms and conditions listed below:
-At least one payment in full is required at the time of the booking to secure your group placement on the calendar. If you are not covering the entire cost of the tour or event, then we request that each person in your party individually book on-line prior to the event or tour. I will email you a link that you can email to your guest. All booking must be paid in full at least 48 hrs in advance unless other arrangements are made, with the exception of the Mt Hood Rail Road Tour which needs to be paid a minimum of 72 hrs. in advance. See below for cancellation.
All tour rates are based on a minimum of 6 people. Parties fewer than 6 will be required to meet the minimum base tour rate/fee.
Weekday rate: Monday-Thursday, $65 per person for a “Tour” or $130 per hour for “Special Event Rentals”.
Weekend rate: Friday-Sunday, $80 per person for “Tour” or $160 per hour for “Special Event Rentals”.
Long distance pick up fee: In order to cover travel expenses for all pick ups over 40 minutes from downtown Portland, please add on one extra ticket, or one hour of time to your booking .
Tour or event cancellation policy:
48 hrs. minimum cancellation notification needed for a full refund.
72 hrs. for the Mt Hood Rail Road Tour
-Because of tour logistics, cancellations with less notice than the above are non-refundable. If a trip is canceled for any reason by The Vintage Tour Bus Co., you will be refunded in full, or rescheduled if you choose, depending on the bus’s availability.
Drinking alcohol on the bus before the tour start in not allowed. However if you purchase wine at the wineries, you are more than welcome to drink that on the bus in between stops.
Please keep in mind that the wineries are about their wines and the tasting experience. They want you to have a wonderful time but they also want their other guests to have a great experience too.
