Karen was amazing from the moment she picked us up to the time she dropped us off. She basically let us run the tour - whatever we wanted to see and do was on the agenda, no questions asked. All of us gals are wine tasting experts and will be completely comfortable on the next tour. Sniff, sip, swirl and... More

To anyone wanting to take a wine tour in the Okanagan ... Grape Friends is an outstanding company! They provided a private Cadillac SUV, very spacious and roomy - along with note books, pens, and cold water to start with. We had a glorious day with Karen - travelling from Kelowna down to Osoyoos - learning about the valley, various... More

Karen was wonderful. She has a great attitude and is also very knowledgeable when it comes to wine. After a few tastings, she was able to list wines that she thought I'd like and she was right every time! I would definitely recommend Grape Friends as a tour to anyone planning a trip to wine country!

Karen was a blast from the beginning, took us to some of her favorite small wineries in Oliver, and man did she ever take our thoughts and run with them! We met some fantastic people and would go back and see them anytime! Fantastic tour! Couldn't ask for a better time!!

My husband and I were going to spend a few days in Penticton, and we pre booked a wine tour to Okanagan Falls with Grape Friends. What a 'grape' choice. Karen picked us up right on time, talked to us a bit about our preferences, and off we started. She paid attention during our first tasting, noting what our wine... More

I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our day with Grape Friends. My husband and I and our daughter and her boyfriend booked a 1/2 day tour of the Naramata region to celebrate our birthdays. Ron was an absolutely wonderful host who went above and beyond to make our day memorable. We were picked up at our hotel... More

Karen was not only an energetic host, she was also incredibly knowledgable and well known to all of the vineyards we visited! If you like adventure and to discover 'hidden gems', Grape Friends is the tour for you! We are already planning our next tour!

My boyfriend and I recently planned a trip through BC with two days in Penticton. As a special treat alongside camping for a week we decided to book a wine tour through the Naramata Bench. I searched online to compare prices and style and instantly fell in love with "Grape Friends". Karen seemed so excited in all her emails and... More
