What happens if I need to cancel my tour?
We understand that things happen and plans sometimes change, and that’s why we have a flexible cancellation policy. We ask that you inform us as soon as possible if your plans do change, as we keep our tour groups small and it’s important for us to fill our groups. We also appreciate as much notice as possible to change our orders and reservations at local establishments– many of which reserve space or tastes exclusively for Local Sauce Tours!
Small-Group Public Tours
Free cancellations and date changes (pending availability) up to 48 hours before your tour.
Cancellations and/or date changes must be communicated by email at [email protected] no less than 48 hours in advance of the tour to receive a refund.
No refunds will be issued for cancellations made within 48 hours of a tour.
No refunds or rebookings are available once a tour has commenced.
Cancellations for private tours or groups of 10 or more participants have special conditions regarding cancellations, which can be viewed in the following section.
Weather Considerations & Force Majeure
Rain or shine, you’ve got to eat! We’ll make sure that you’re looked after, despite the forecast. In the case of rain, we do recommend bringing an umbrella.
Tours run regardless of weather conditions. In case a tour is jeopardized or impossible due to force majeure, weather events, political disturbances or strikes, tours can be cancelled if we believe it is necessary.
Minimum Number of Participants
We have an exclusive relationship with many of our tour partners, and some require a minimum number of participants in order to operate the tour.
If the minimum of participants (as stated in the tour description) is not reached, Local Sauce Tours reserves the right to cancel the tour. We will offer alternative options and/or refund the tour price. Further compensation claims are excluded.

Any decision regarding an exception to the stated policy will be made entirely at the discretion of the Operator.
