Season Information for Our Guests

To Our Magical Guests: Thanks to each of you for being our guest – we appreciate your business and confidence.  We have introduced new, safe, comfortable experiences in Nova Scotia for our 10th season. We really missed our guests in Niagara and hope to see you in 2022.

As we all do our part to keep everyone safe and healthy, we look forward to our 2021 season with hope and renewal.  While our experiences may look a little different, the friendly, welcoming smiles and hospitality will be the same.

Our Admission Policy

We really appreciate your business and your confidence in us.  While our admissions are non-refundable, you have options; you are welcome to reschedule to a new day of your choosing or gifting your admission to someone else for their enjoyment.

Our Health and Travel Restriction Policy

If the departure day you booked is cancelled or you are unable to be on board both due to preventative public health measures, we are happy to reschedule your experience or issue a refund. Both options are at no additional cost to you.

Proof of Vaccination Policy

Starting October 4, 2021, the Province of Nova Scotia will implement a proof of vaccination policy for people over the age of twelve who participate in activities which bring groups of people together. Participating in a wine tour falls under the activities requiring proof of vaccination. Magic Winery Bus Limited will be complying with the government policy.

For those guests who can, Magic Winery Bus encourages guests to be or become fully vaccinated fourteen days prior to their scheduled departure. At check-in, guests will be asked to provide proof of vaccination in the form recommended by the Province of Nova Scotia plus a government issued photo ID.

Together, we all need to do our part to keep ourselves and those around us healthy. Being fully vaccinated means we will all have the opportunity to enjoy normal activities again, comfortably and safely.
