THE FLOATING CLASSROOM: Little Venice to Camden Boat Ride Wine Tasting

Hello Tastourians!

 

I'm planning out the wine and getting very excited for tomorrow!  This is possibly one of the best line-ups of wine we've had at an event.

At 9:21pm on Friday there are still two tickets left.

 

EVENT DETAILS:

 

This event was amazing last time, and might even be one of the best events of the year!

See the video here. See photos here

 

Who says learning can’t be fun and social?

Our floating classroom will explore wine and make new London discoveries along the way.

It’s New World Camden vs Old World Little Venice – who will sink and who will swim?

This is one boat you don’t want to miss.

 

Please note: signing up on meetup does not confirm your spot.  You need to pre-pay on www.tastour.com  There are only 35 spaces and around 50 interested, so if you are keen to come, please buy your ticket in advance.

 

About the Venue:

The Grand Canal is an extensive network stretching over 130 miles. The section between Little Venice and Camden is one of the most scenic and historic. The floating classroom is a charitable vessel. Weather permitting, you can soak up the natural beauty of grassy banks and historic boats from the outside viewing deck.

What’s included?:

3 hour boat ride with a welcome glass of bubbles, guided wine tasting of premium wine, cheese & generous canapés/light dinner, booking fee, PayPal fee, exclusive boat hire (£20 per person), donation to local schools

Feedback from the last wine tasting:

“ Really great night, I was going initially going to learn about wine, but the social aspect was a real bonus. Kelly was a fantastic host and I look forward to attending more of her events. ”

“ Kelly is incredibly organized, and plans great events. She brings together fun and interesting people for a high quality evening. And she is a wonderful hostess, making everyone feel welcome and keeping us entertained! I also learned a thing or 2 about wine! ”

“ I've been to other introduction wine tastings over the years, but I found this one more structured and I learned some new things about wine tasting. ”

“ It was a fun evening and great way to socialise and learn at the same time ! ”

“ Very nice! Good wines & interesting people! Look forward to the next one! Thanks Kelly! ”

“ Organization was very good, atmosphere was lively, wine was tasty, and people were friendly. ”

    Hi Kelly,

    I can't make today. I never paid, but I got a reminder saying I needed to complete payment so it doesn't appear I am off the list. Please can you ensure that I am taken off the list and you pass my space to someone else.

    Thanks

    March 6, 2013

    • Kelly

      Hi Mark, Not everyone on meetup has paid. So There are still spaces left. Check www.tastour.com for number of spots left.

    Hi kelly, I just joined your group and would love to make it to the Floating classroom but how does it work with only 30 places available and 48 already attending?

    March 12, 2013

    • Kelly

      I think you noticed the answer below but just in case, not everyone on meetup has paid. So There are still spaces left. Check www.tastour.com for number of spots left.

  • Anthonia

    Hi Kelly,

    At the risk of jumping on the band wagon, I'm equally as perplexed as Anuradha. How can 48 people subscribe to 30 places?

    March 26, 2013

      And as written above in the event invite: Please note: signing up on meetup does not confirm your spot. You need to pre-pay on www.tastour.com There are only 35 spaces and around 50 interested, so if you are keen to come, please buy your ticket in advance.

    Hello - can you tell me if there are any more spaces available on this tour? I've just learned about Tastour and this event - 35 spaces with 50 interested people doesn't sound very promising for attendance.

    Hi Kelly, I will definitely be attending! Watched the vid and it looked like a worthwhile event to attend. When is the deadline for the payment??

    January 14, 2013

    • Kelly

      Hi Nikki, We have 15 tickets left. So ideally asap, if you want to make sure you get one. Cheers, Kelly

  • Kelly

    Hello! There's been a lot of excitment for our boat trip on the 20th April. There are already 15 people pre-paid, meaning that it is likely this event will sell out early. Please book early if you don't want to miss the boat! Kelly
