My two girlfriends and I recently enjoyed a wine tour to 5 Naramata Bench vineyards during the first week of November 2014. Our hostess/driver Karen is made for this job! She was enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the area and wines and was able to take us to wineries that were closed to the general public. We had the fabulous opportunity... More

From picking us up at the hotel and adding two extra people on short notice Karen is prepared for everything.The wineries she choose were excellent and I cant wait to go back to some of... More

Our tour was with Karen and she was prompt and welcoming. We are not new to wine tours in Okanagan and felt she was good at picking up our experience and was very good at selecting wineries that fit our tastes. She had supplies on hand; water, pretzels, pen and paper to remember what wines we liked.

My mom and I did the beer tour on Easter weekend (2014) and we had a blast. We stopped at a few of the breweries in Penticton, and had lunch included. It was a great afternoon, and the local breweries had some amazing craft beers for us to sample; especially Cannery Brewing (it was our favourite).

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

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
