As an experienced wine tour enthusiast, I and two of my friends were very excited to book a tour with Karen after we'd read so many positive reviews. Karen arrived right on time to pick us up, and there were the three of us as well as another two-person (mother and daughter) group. We appreciated the small, professional details Karen... More

We toured Oct. 12 and 13 with Grape Friends. These nice people know how to do a wine tour. We visited a range of wineries from the small family operations to the larger corporate entities. Ron and Karen are very knowledgeable about the wineries and their wines. Next time we are in Penticton will be touring with Grape Friends.

From pick up to drop off, Karen's effervescent personality, wealth of knowledge, and seemingly bottomless energy set the tone for our winery tours. Each winery we went to was unique, both in variety of wines and size of vineyard. We had lunch at Hillside Winery (the cost of which is not included in the tour), which was excellent. I highly...

Ron picked us up at our accommodation and showed us 9 (!) wineries on the Naramata bench! For our tour he picked some of the smaller places and told us a lot of interesting/fun facts. We felt very welcome at all wineries and tasted a lot of different wines. And we were able to make notes about our tastings thanks... More

Me and my wife were pick-up by Karen at our Hotel in the late morning. Luckily it was just the two of us, so we enjoyed a real VIP tour that day. Karen does not come up with a fixed tour, instead we had lots of chats about wine, favourites and personal taste right from the beginning. That information made... More

Karen was friendly, outgoing, and very well organized! She stayed on top of our excessive wine purchases and led us on a fun and informative day through Naramata. Thank you Karen, we will be back next year. (or sooner if we run out of wine)

Shuttle was ready and waiting 10 minutes early, the tour was perfect, and the ride was clean and spacious. Really appreciated the professionalism, insights on the Okanagan, and will undoubtedly book again. Thank you!

Thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday afternoon with Ron from Grape Friends. He and Karen were very accommodating in setting up a tour for us in Okanagan Falls. Their van was modern and clean and we appreciated some of the extra details such as notepads and crackers. Ron was much more than a designated driver. Ron's knowledge of the area and some... More

So this was my trip to celebrate our 10th anniversary in our 11th year. Been on a few other wine tours with the girls but my first with hubby and he quite enjoyed himself even though not a wine drinker. This was by far the most enjoyable tour I have been on. Great vehicle to travel in with lots of... More

Our dragonboat team participated in the Penticton Regatta this year. We had a fantastic weekend which ended with a lovely wine tour with Grape Friends. Due to the regatta it was hard for our organiser to nail down a specific pick up time but Grape Friends were super super flexible. We were staying in 3 different locations and they looped... More
