Tour details


Tours operate rain or shine. We will be walking approximately 2 km along beautiful – but uneven – cobblestone streets. Please contact us directly regarding accessibility issues, as not all stops may be wheelchair accessible. If given advance notice, we will do our best to make accommodations. If you have any questions regarding accessibility, just let us know.

 

Meeting location


We’ll meet in the Toulouse city center near the Esquirol (Line A) and Carmes (Line B) metro stations. Exact location and detailed directions will be emailed along with your order confirmation.

Good to Know


What's included

All food and drink samples provided on the tour. We will visit at least 2 wine bars, at one of which we will share light nibbles like cheese and charcuterie (subject to change depending on availability). Expect to receive the equivalent of at least 3 glasses of wine. Please note that the above descriptions are subject to change based on seasonal availability and the changing food scene in Toulouse.

 

We designed this wine bar tour so that you can still enjoy dinner in the Toulouse city center afterward, though we do advise leaving a little time between the tour and your reservation so you don’t have to rush. We’re happy to give recommendations!

What's not included

Additional food and drink that you wish to purchase yourself. The food on this tour is not meant to constitute a full meal, so expect to need at least a light dinner.

What to wear or bring

We will be walking approximately 2 km along cobblestone streets, so comfortable shoes and weather-appropriate clothing is a must. Please dress appropriately (and bring an umbrella if necessary) to make sure you enjoy your time on the tour. To reduce environmental waste, we don’t distribute plastic water bottles, so we encourage you to bring a reusable water bottle with you. Water will generally be provided at the wine bars, but may not be available at all times.

An important note about alcohol and age restrictions

Drinking wine is a major component of this tour, and as such, we do not accept guests under the age of 18. We reserve the right to ask for an ID to verify your age if you appear to be younger.

If you’re below the age of 18, or wine just isn’t your thing, please browse our full selection of walking food tours of Toulouse.

The effects of alcohol vary from person to person, but we do not recommend planning to drive after taking this tour.

The abuse of alcohol is dangerous for your health, so please consume it in moderation.

Dietary restrictions/food allergies

I am happy to accommodate the follow diets with advance notice:

  • Vegetarians
  • Pescatarians
  • No pork
  • Gluten-free (NOT Celiac)

Any of the above dietary requirements MUST be noted when booking to allow time to make arrangements for substitutions. I ask that those with dietary restrictions book tours at least 24 hours in advance! If you are vegan, please contact me in advance of booking to discuss your options. If you have any questions regarding dietary accommodations or would like to see if I can accommodate other restrictions or food allergies (I often can – please ask!), email me directly at jessica@tasteoftoulouse.com before booking.

Cancellations/refunds

Please review your order and the tour details carefully before booking. Tickets are refundable or exchangeable until 24 hours prior to the start time of the tour. You can easily request a refund, reschedule your reservation for another date (pending availability), convert your booking to a voucher for later use, or reassign your tickets to another person with at least 24 hours notice. Any changes MUST be communicated in writing to jessica@tasteoftoulouse.com.

Alternate tour dates/times

Tickets for the small groups tours go on sale 3 months in advance to allow time to confirm upcoming availability.

 

Interested in taking the Toulouse Wine Bar Tour on a different day and/or time? Contact me for additional availability and pricing. I’m very often able to add additional dates according to interest. However, this tour is not available on Sundays and Mondays due to wine bar opening hours.

Bookings for 1 person

Unfortunately, due to the dramatically higher cost of providing a solo tour, we require a minimum of 2 people to run a tour. If you are trying to purchase a single ticket without success, we most likely don’t yet have any other reservations for that tour date. If that is the case, you can do the following:

  • Purchase 2 tickets to ensure that the tour runs. During the booking process, you’ll be asked for participant names. Write “single booking” in the space for the 2nd participant. If we receive more bookings for that date, we’ll automatically refund you for the second ticket.
  • Wait until closer to the date of the tour to see if we get other reservations before booking your ticket. If there are no bookings for a specific tour date, we close the bookings 18 hours in advance.
  • Contact us with your date of interest and we’ll let you know if anyone else has expressed interest in that date or if there may be alternative dates on either side that you could join.
