Just back from our 3rd tour with Kent! This year we were with 2 other couples, which was different but turned out to be great. Kent is always on time, friendly and very informative. He took us to some great new wineries & some old favorites. I would highly recommend this tour to all wine lovers.

We had a wonderful wine tour with Kent during our visit to Osoyoos. Kent allowed us to bring our dog on the tour which was really nice. If our dog was not allowed in a winery Kent would keep him outside while we went in for the tastings. Kent is very thoughtful and organized. The highlight for us was Maverick... More

We were fortunate to obtain a booking with Kent for a private, full-day tour with just my husband and me. The day was informative, relaxing, and fun. He included in the itinerary our requested wineries, and added a couple that were excellent but new to us. Kent’s in-depth knowledge of the area and its wines, as well as his rapport... More
