Important Notes

  • Traveling for this trip requires some frequent walking, especially at distilleries. Please be prepared to walk up to a half a mile at a time. Walking several miles in a day is common, but can be avoided via the free zero bus in Louisville.
  • Travelers under age 21 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
  • UWSP Continuing Education does not provide travel insurance, medical, or emergency evacuation and thus you are 100% responsible for these expenses. We strongly advise you purchase travel insurance as soon as possible after registering for a trip because some insuance providers only guarentee certain benefits within a short time after you make a travel deposit. We also advise carrying health insurance while on any tour as well.
  • Travelers may want to conside short-term traveler's insurance that covers baggage, accident/life, trip interruption, trip cancellation, and more. Visit Travel Insurance Review​ to answer any of your travel insuarance questions, get tips, and advice, or compare different providers.
