For my bachlorette party, my sisters and closest friends surprised me with a trip to Osoyoos for a wine tour. Beforehand, Kent worked with one of my bridesmaids to recommend some great wineries so we wouldn't have to make any decisions on the day of the tour.

one of our best decisions on a recent trip to the South Okanagan. Kent knows the winerys (the history) as well as the people who make the wine as well as those who add to the wine tasting experience. After asking what our wishes were Kent constructed a tour (with several excellent additions) that met all our expectations and more.... More

This was my 10th visit to the Okanagan, and I really thought I had seen it all. To my delight, Kent took our party to several out-of-the-way wineries and restaurants that I never would have found on my own! I am now a true believer in the value of a tour guide with deep local knowledge like Kent, and will... More

Travelled to Osoyoos in southern BC, to do some wine country touring and visit with family. Desert Country Wine Tours was highly recommended by my daughter, and rightly so! Kent was highly knowledgeable about the area and well known by the winemakers and owners. We ate grapes off the vines, talked to a winemaker and of course, tasted some greats... More

Kent is a lovely fellow but, note that payment is expected in cash, other tours may take away from your tour [ostensibly because of lunch delays], and that sending a cheque to cover lack of cash is difficult because address on website [when you FIND the address] does not include the postal code. Otherwise, Kent is jovial, upbeat, knows his... More

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!
