The only tandem specific things to carry on a 5 day tour is what is not available in most local bike shops: tandem length rear brake and derailleur cable.
Otherwise: 2 tubes, patch kit, spare folding tire, chaintool and couple links, multi-tool.
While it is rare to break a chain or cable, rip up a tire or break a spoke, those things can, and do happen.
Been there, done that!
Enjoy the tour!
