Can't beat having smart and friendly tour guides when you're touring BC wine country. These folks really know their wineries, restaurants and local attractions. I filled my 'must-do' list just chatting with them on tour. Great value, too!

Our group was small which made it even more enjoyable, it was great fun. The wineries Karen chose were stunning, excellent staff and of course beautiful wine! Great value for money too.

Ron and Karen run a great tour company and they make sure to take care of all the details. We were provided everything from pens and notepads to make our wine tasting notes, pretzels to refresh our palates between wineries, labels to keep our bottles of separate and plenty of water to stay hydrated! Ron is a super friendly driver... More

We just got back from a girls trip to Penticton where we did a wine tour with Grape Friends. We had such an awesome time with Karen and Ron. They were super fun and very knowledgeable. They far exceeded my expectations and even had little stickers to mark each bottle we bought so we knew who's wine belonged to each... More

We had a great time touring wine country, Naramata style, with grape friends wine tours. They took great care of all the details and were very knowledgable with all aspects of the wine industry in the Okanagan area and wines in general. It was a really personalized experience due to the fact that we toured in a nice SUV with... More

What an amazing time we had. There were 7 ladies, and Karen was awesome with us. Right from the booking to the drop off. We laughed so much, drank and bought a bit to much wine. Lunch was on Hillside Winery patio, the sun was shinning, the weather was warm, we couldn't have had a better day. The wineries Karen... More
