I found "Grape Friends" on line was not disappointed. Karen was wonderful and very knowledgeable. We toured Summerland and went to many great wineries. We stopped for lunch and again was not disappointed. All in all it was a great experience and I would definitely recommend giving them a try!!

Loved every minute of our tour! Karen was great; she took time know what we were looking for in our tour, what kind of palates we had, she knew everyone by name and gave us full control of the radio on our drive back ;-) I will be touring again with Grape Friends, wouldn't do it another way!!

Booked a short notice trip with Karen when friends visited from the coast and she couldn't have been more accommodating and delightful to deal with. We toured the Summerland area and were very pleased with the quality of the wines and knowledgeable staff at the ones we visited with a shout out to Sonoran Estate staff for the fun and... More

They're fun, passionate people who really go out of their way to make sure everything runs smoothly and everyone has an enjoyable time. Our group planned to visit Red Rooster, Ruby Blues, Hillside, and Elephant Island. Thanks to Karen and Ron, we... More

My wife and I had a great time with Karen. I had booked a private 4hr tour with dinner drop off at our chosen restaurant destination. She picked us up later that night as part of the package which was lovely. The whole day was fantastic, and Karen is fun, knowledgable and full of passion! She even seemed to really... More

Grape Friends was recommended to us and we chose the Dinner Tour. We spent a great afternoon with another couple touring the Naramata Bench with Ron. We went to a few new wineries and a couple of favourite returns. We especially enjoyed the Premium wine tasting at Red Rooster. We were dropped off at a restaurant of our choice. Ron... More

This was my 3rd tour with Karen at the wheel and once again we had a fantastic day. We chose Naramata for this tour and sampled some incredible wines. (new favourite - Van Westen). Grape Friends gives you the option of dining at a winery or having them provide the lunch. My recommendation is to have Karen & Ron provide... More

A friend and I were in Penticton for a girls weekend camping, and decided to add on a wine tour. And boy was it worth it! With someone else driving we didn't have to worry about sampling every single wine that we could, especially since they picked us up and dropped us off right at our campground! Karen answered all...

We booked two tours with this service- one from Penticton and one from Oliver. Both were outstanding. The wineries on the Naramata Bench are all in close proximity, so we covered a large number of them during our tour. Ron, our guide, took us to some wineries we wouldn't have selected (or known about). He chose the wineries based on... More
