We had the pleasure of going on a wine tour with Kent. He was fantastic! Friendly, accommodating and knowledgable; we couldn't have asked for a better host for our first ever wine tour. We will be back and will be using Kent again!

Kent is a wonderful tour guide - he picked us up at the RV Resort we were staying at in Osoyoos, drove us around to multiple wineries (delicious lunch at Burrowing Owl - I recommend the Duck Confit), and provided us with interesting tidbits about each location. Overall, I highly recommend this tour and will definitely be returning in the... More

For our first trip to the Okanagan Valley, my boyfriend booked us a 4-hour tour with Kent and let him know ahead of time what we were most interested in (icewine and dessert wine). Kent's excellent knowledge of the area (Oliver, Osoyoos) wineries and what they serve led us to some amazing places we wouldn't have found on our own!... More
