Bookings and cancellation policy for scheduled tours

Bookings with the Cambridge Food Tour can be considered confirmed only after payment has been completed within 24 hours of the reservation has been made. Reservations will only be held for 24 hours.

Minimum numbers

We need a minimum of 4 guests to run our food tours. If we don’t reach this, then we might have to cancel the tour or if possible move it to an alternative date. If we don’t reach the minimum numbers, then we will inform you by email at least 2 days prior to the tour. If we cannot reach you by email, then we will contact you by phone or by text message. We cannot take responsibility for emails going into spam. The Cambridge Food Tour always will try their best to contact you, but it is all dependent on the contact information the person responsible for the booking has supplied us.


If one of our food tours is rescheduled, changed or moved, the Cambridge Food Tour will usually give you the option of either retaining or exchanging your tickets for a new date/tour or alternatively claiming a refund. If a food tour is cancelled by the Cambridge Food Tour you will be offered a refund.

Why not give yourself peace of mind and include in your purchase ticket insurance via Ticket Guardian. Full refunds four of our food walking tours are given up to 14 days prior to the event. This doesn’t apply to group bookings.

Refunds and vouchers

If for any reason you are entitled to a refund, we will cancel your booking with the Food and Drink Events (Cambridge) LTD, trading as ‘Cambridge Food Tours’ in the same way as you have made the booking.

Any refund will usually be paid, using the same method you used to buy the tickets, within 14 days of the original date of the event for reservations of 1 or 2 guests. For bookings of parties from 2+, the group booking conditions apply. ( see below)

Refunds will only be given on the ticket price, not on any other costs occurred. Vouchers cannot be redeemed for cash and they only can be extended by contacting us prior to the expiry date.

Before you finalise your booking, please read all the information that applies to the event and/or ticket. If you or any member of your party has particular requirements please raise these when booking and we will endeavour to address your query. There can be no guarantee that requirements can be met if not notified at the time of booking. All our food served on our tours have traces of nuts and sometimes gluten too.

When you receive your tickets check the details carefully. When attending a Food Tour or an Event, carry proof of age if appropriate.
