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

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

My friends and I had a fabulous time on the "Grape Buddies Dinner Tour" with Karen and Ron. 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
