My husband and I booked the regular wine tour for a Sunday. Rick advised that if there are no other people that sign up, instead of cancelling we can upgrade to a private tour for x amount. And it was soooo worth it! Dave picked us up at our hotel on time (actually he was even a few mins early).... More

Private tour at four amazing locations with Rick providing valuable information about the region, the wines and a fantastic time. We rocked the Sprinter and it will never be the same.

We had an issue where the ship was going to be late, and then it arrived on time, this was not a problem, we were able to contact Rick and he made the necessary adjustments. As soon... More

We booked a private wine tour as part of our honeymoon. It was a highlight of our trip. We spent the day with 'Hawaiian' Rick - what an awesome guy! We felt like VIPs all day. We visited four vineyards which were right up our street - they'd clearly read our email discussions about our interests and wine tastes. The... More

We reserved a private driver for the day and got way more than we paid for. Big Dave was our driver for the day and he was incredibly knowledgable about wine and the area. We let him lead the way and visited some amazing wineries and he provided an amazing gourmet picnic lunch. Can't wait to come back and use... More

"Hawaiian Rick" is the man! One of the greatest attributes of Canyon Wine Tours is their great customer service and laid back, friendly attitude. My wife and I had an incredible time touring four wineries customized to our tastes. Rick was super attentive to our needs, providing water and snacks, suggesting photo opportunities, checking out miniature horses, communicating with wineries... More

My experience my girlfriend was great. Rick was on time and we were paired with another couple. We told Rick that we didn't know much about wine and he took us to some great wineries in the area. Rick was also very informational but also gave us space to have a good time. He also took as many pictures of... More
