Ron picked us up at 1:30 and drove us to 7 different wineries, ranging from big commercial to small backyard. The best wineries were the small, family run but all were great. He dropped us off at the restaurant we had chosen for dinner and came back for us and drove us home. A fantastic way to spend the day... More

We were escorted to five lovely wineries in the Summerland area. Both family and large wineries. Our hostess Karen had a extensive knowledge of wine making and especially the lovely wines produced in this area.

This was our first BC Wine tour and it didn't disappoint. Karen picked us up on time and kept us entertained thru the better part of 6 hours. She is a phenomenal guide. She is a "bubbly" personality and a solid knowledge of Wine. The wineries she choose were perfect for what we were looking for, and made the experience... More

This was our first winery tour with Grape Friends. Karen (one of the owners) picked us up from our hotel with her awesomely spacious SUV and she was so friendly, we really enjoyed our time with her. She took us around to see some beautiful and tasty wineries in Naramata. Taking the tour really made a difference as Karen's choices... More

There are tons of vineyards that one can visit and many that offer tasting. All are well signed when you drive in front of them but who wants to drink and drive? Ron was very accommodating to the tastes of our group and picked the places to see accordingly. He was also flexible with time as our group wanted to... More

I honestly didn't know what to expect, I thought it might be a tour of the wineries and maybe the orchards, but it was essentially a drive to 10 wine-tasting counters. And that is okay, if we had wanted to find a spot (and there are some incredible views where we could have lounged for 2-3hrs in the sun) we... More

Ron and Karen are excellent hosts for this adventure, you can really hear the passion in their voices during the whole tour and even on the phone booking the trip. This was our first wine tour in the Okanagan valley, and it will surely not be our last!!! We hope to return out there soon and have another great experience... More

Grape Friends made everything about our 1st wine tasting trip to B.C. wine country easy--from reservations to the return to our B&B. We visited 7 wineries in the Okanagan Falls area with Ron and had a wonderful time with no worries about driving.

We were super excited to take this tour especially after all good comments we'd read. We expected to hear all amazing stories about wineries, about the area, about the wine, grapes. You know, like a normal tour with a tour guide. But in reality, there was no tour! It was so much disappointing! We were just driven around to some... More

I just really had a wonderful time overall. Ron was a great intermediary between the wineries and the novices and just lots of fun. From the time the tour was booked to the time it ended, I felt like they had their act together. Especially nice was a confirmation email before I left Saskatchewan for BC, so that I knew... More
