“Exceeds Expectations!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Wow, what a fantastically organized, fun and full of unexpected adventure this Sandbanks PEC Wine Tour is!! I wanted to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday with his closest friends in a special way and this tour did exactly that. We were pleasantly greeted at our front door by Heather, our private tour guide for the day on the executive limo bus that was beautiful, spacious and comfortable. Heather was exceptional in her knowledge and made sure everyone had a great time by adding humour and providing such in depth information about the region and its wineries. We were all amazed to see the number of wine boutiques that exist in PEC. Hospitality was obvious by their friendly welcome, provision of wine tastings paired with the right food samplings and one even posted a sign wishing my husband a Happy Birthday. In addition to organizing all of the above, Sandbank Tours dropped our group off at West and Main an outstanding restaurant with exceptional service and food then organized our trip back home. We did not have to worry about a THING!!! They did it all and did it with style!!!
A big Thank you to Craig, Heather and Bob for making my husband's 60th birthday one to remember!!!

“The Perfect Bachelorette Adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

We visited the County and booked a wine tour with Sandbanks Tours as part of a Bachelorette Weekend getaway. It was the best decision ever! We had a wonderful host, Craig, who made sure to bring us to the best wineries in the County. He was so much fun and really contributed the whole experience. We all fell in love with the County and enjoyed every minute of our time there. Thanks to everyone at Sandbanks Tours for making it a weekend to remember!

“Amazing Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

I wanted to let you know how much my husband and I enjoyed our wine tour on Sunday, October 14, 2012 with your excellent tour guide, Wolfe. We had a great time thanks to Wolfe's knowledge of the wineries and the local area. We will definitely be promoting Sandbanks Vacation Tours to our friends and coworkers.
We are still in shock because we had no idea of the caliber of estate and cottage wineries that we have, basically, in our back yard!

Hope to be visiting again in the very near future.

“Fun little vineyard”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

The place was the second busiest on the "taste tour", both bars were packed, so we waited our turn, the wines were good, but the four that really stood out were: Dunes, Waves, Baco Noir and Love Casis ( whites, red and aperitivo in respective order). Very reasonably priced and quite delicious, we bought 2 of each. Try the cheeses, they buy from a town close by and the emperess (I think that was the brand) cheddar is delicious! Great atmosphere, friendly staff!

“Awesome Wine Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

We experienced two guided tours in two days with different hosts. It was an unexpected pleasure that the personalities of the hosts, while decidedly different, added to the character of the tour in a very positive way. Their broad knowledge of the region and the individual vineyards and winemakers made for a very enjoyable tour. Seeing the smaller wineries and meeting the staff and, in most cases the winemakers themselves, brought an intimacy that made the tour very personal and quite enjoyable. Kudos to Heather and Wolf for their efforts as our guides.
