“We took our kids! Kent the Host is AMAZING!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Kent was on time, knew the area very well, recommended great vineyards, charges fair rate, took us for longer than the agreed time, but BEST of all 4 adults brought 5 kids (2, 4,5,5, and 7) and Kent had them entertained and well supervised the whole time so us adults could have piece of mind while sipping some great B.C. wine. Would hire Kent again in a minute.

“Amazing day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

We decided to go on a wine tour. We were six in total and visited a number of wineries. Our tour was to be three hours but went on for over four hours.
Kent was a great host, very knowledgeable about wine and the area. All of the people at the wineries knew him and treated him and his guests as special guests.
It was wonderful.

“Kent was a Fantastic Host”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

My wife and I booked with Desert Country Wine Tours during our recent stay in Oliver. Kent went out of his way to pick us up at our accomodations which were 30 minutes outside of town. We booked the 4 hour tour on a Monday, and ended up with just the 2 of us, so yay, private tour.

We had a list of wineries that we wanted to visit, and Kent made sure that we got to each one. Even though our 4 hours had expired, he insisted we visit the last 2 on our list with no additional charge.

Kent is kind and gracious, and is good company for the tour. The cost was reasonable, and I would have no problems recommending him to anyone.

“Kent is Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

I just got back from a weekend up in the Okanagan for my bachlorette party. Myself and eleven other girls went on a wine tour with Kent and we had an awesome day! I had never done a wine tour before but will definitely do it again, and would certainly reccomend Kent and Desert Country. He quoted me the lowest prices of any other company and the service was excellent. Kent was very knowledgeable and took us to some fabulous wineries. He is very easy going and flexible and genuinely concerned that everyone has a good time. He even took group pictures for us! All in all we had a fabulous time.

“Great Investment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

We were six adults in a three hour tour. The group liked both white and red wines. Kent used the time extremely well and we received lots of information concerning the vineyards, the local communities and the cultures. We visited 5 wineries and felt our expectations were met in a professional manner. We were received well at the 5 wineries, had a good visit of the facilities, and had an ample taste of many different wines. Kent is obviously respected by all the wineries. He also provided an excellent option for a light lunch at one of the wineries. In short, everything was EXCELLENT. We certainly got our moneys worth!! Highly recommended.
