“Wonderful tour with an Exceptional Guide (Richard)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

A group of us went on the “Sip and Savour” tour with Crush tours on September 22, 2012. I would like to sincerely thank Crush tours and especially, Richard, our tour guide for the amazing day we had. Richard was outstanding guide who offered interesting information about the wineries, wine, and local area. He answered all the questions we had and was very knowledgeable. He kept us entertained with humorous stories and it felt as if we were laughing all day long! Richard definitely made this tour memorable for all of us and we have already recommended Crush tours (with Richard as the guide of course!) to several friends. We will definitely be taking another tour with Richard in the future!

Thank you kindly for taking the time to write this review. I can honestly say that we get "thank you" letters via e-mail at least 4 times a week and many of them are in praise of Richard.

We are so very proud of the tour guides that we employ, many of them retired from their executive positions. They are always professional, courteous and plethers of knowledge when it comes to wine country and all things wine. Most of them have spent their entire lives in Niagara .

Richard is not only a fabulous host and tour guide, but an incredibly kind and wonderful person.We are honoured to have him as part of our Crush team.

When you are ready to tour with us again, we will make sure Richard is part of your fabulous day!


Keep drinking Ontario Wines, Cheers!

“Fun and informative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

My husband and I stayed at a B&B outside Jordan Station. We wanted to do a wine tour and since we had a huge breakfast did not want the lunch or dinner tour offered . We chose the afternoon wine tour and it was perfect
Crush Tours pick you up at your B&B which is very handy, The Van arrived at 1pm with four other passengers . There were two sets of sisters, one set from the States and the other from Ontario. They were all interesting people and it was nice to chat a bit and share our thoughts about the wines and cheese, We were taken to four wineries and a cheese store.
Bob ,our driver was very friendly and informative He had the trip organized in a way to give us different information at each winery. As we drove to each he would explain the different kinds of grapes we were seeing. At the first winery we were shown the process of making wine and at the second winery we were shown how to taste wine , At the third we saw how a small winery functions and at the last we were shown a large winery and tasted Ice Wine.The cheese store was very nice as well. We were able to sample different cheeses .
Bob was always there to help us step in and out of the Van . At the beginning of our tour he labeled a box for each of us and each time we purchased a wine he would take the bottle and carry it to the Van and place it into our box to keep all our wines organized. I never felt rushed and we all seemed happy and all learned something . We arrived back at our B&B about 5:30 .
One thing that did surprise me as a "wine virgin" was that most of the wines were not available in the LCBO and the wines at the wineries are not particularly cheap . I thought they would be less expensive as they did not need to advertise or ship them anywhere however, I would highly recommend this wine tour and all the wines . We all had a good time and learned something and I felt we received good value for our dollar.

Thank you for the comments! We like Bob too and get many thank you letters about him!

Our tour guides always take the time for the "little extras" like getting to know you and your knowledge of wine, answering questions, marking and labeling boxes and helping you carry your purchases.

Sounds like you had a fabulous time! Come and tour with Crush again soon.

Keep drinking Ontario wines, Cheers!

“great day with Crush!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

My girlfriends and I planned an afternoon with Crush and had an excellent experience. Our driver arrived on time, was knowlegable, and fun! We started our afternoon with a gourment lunch, followed by a tour of 4 boutique wineries. Crush followed up the next day for feedback on our experience. I would highly recommend using them - we plan to go again next year!!

“Napa-you've got nothing on Crush”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

What are the words we would use to describe one of the most enjoyable and relaxing times of our lives, that went WAY beyond our expectation?

Quaint, Fun, Exciting, Relaxing, Spontaneous, Romantic, Professional, Eclectic, Wonderful, and even Magical!, to name a few.

This Bed and Breakfast was PERFECT; set in a refurbished farm home in a magnificent rural environment. From walks in their personal vineyard to their well-designed tours of the multiple vineyards in the immediate area-our JOY and KNOWLEDGE of wine expanded exponentially. The staff was fantastic; courteous and professional - The accommodations so perfect; clean and comfortable - The food to die for; healthy and seasonal.

After only 4 days away from our hectic schedules we left feeling rested, more in love, and rejuvenated with a desire to repeat the experience at our earliest opportunity! Napa Valley - You have nothing on the Canadian Vineyards and "Crush on Niagara Wine Tours"!

“Amazing wine tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

My Friends and I had a day trip to Niagara this past weekend. We have been there before but this time were recommened to use Crush on Niagara Wine Tours by our hotel. We were met right on time and joined on a spacious tour van with big windows. The group size was small so we felt like VIP's.
Our guide Bob was really knowledgable and shared many insites over the day. We learned so many things dispite this being my 3rd trip to Niagara. I also found we had amazing attention at the wineries. Even though the tasting bars were crowded, we had our own private tasting area. One winery held the door open and welcomed us...nice touch.
I think the money spent was well worth it. Neither of us were interested in driving and we each found a new favourite wine . The tour was well thought out and very professionally done.

Would highly recommend this afternoon tour. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
