    Should I protect my trip with travel insurance?

    This is a personal decision, however we recommend buying travel insurance. It’s more than lost luggage or flight delays, but it’s also protection in case you have to cancel your trip before departure due to an emergency. Always read your policy wording to review your specific coverage and to make sure that the policy is right for you.

    Luggage

    Our luggage policy is based on physical space limitations of the vehicles we use and the requirement that all travelers be able to manage their own belongings without assistance.

    It is best to travel as lightly as possible. Most travelers regret when they have packed too much. You may bring one suitcase plus a small shoulder bag/day pack/purse. Maximum suitcase size: 24 inches in height as measured from the FLOOR to the top of the retracted handle. This is the size of a bag that fits into the overhead bins of aircraft. Suitcases larger than this will not fit in the Mercedes Sprinter; please don’t bring them.

    The weight of your bag should not exceed 30 pounds. Each guest is responsible for managing their luggage and will take their belongings from the van to the Hotel room and then bring it back to the van for loading.

    What if I arrive late and miss a part of the trip?

    We regret that no refunds can be made for absences from a trip, including experiences such as missed meals or sightseeing.

    Can I book extra nights of hotel accommodation before or after my tour?

    Yes, in most cases we can arrange additional accommodation at our starting or ending hotels. Please contact us with your request.

    YOUR HOST

    Hi! I’m Julie…

    founder, travel advisor, trip designer, and your host at Grape Adventures Travel and Tours.

    Originally from the Southeastern United States, I have resided in California (in both Los Angeles and San Francisco) for more than 15 years.

    Formerly a school teacher, with previous experience in the hospitality industry, I take “lessons learned” from each of these fields to create memorable travel and tour experiences that entertain and educate (without being boring!)… and create cherished memories and connections for my guests.

    Our women only multi-day tours provide the opportunity to join-in a tour with other women to enjoy new experiences together and make new friendships and nurture existing ones.

    I look forward to sharing a Grape Adventure with you!
