We are able to accommodate guests who would like a non-alcoholic tour as well (virgin drinks or substitutions). The cost is the same for a regular or non-alcoholic tour as guests will still experience the full tour, tasty appetizers & the same number of beverages. Please include a message with your purchase for any concerns or questions we might be able to help you with.
