“Enjoyable & informative”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2010

We did the signature tour & lunch. Tour guide was professional, courteous and informative. I do not know a lot about wine, but picked up useful information from him. He was not a "talk machine". We visited a good variety of wineries, and I was especially impressed with the organic wines. Lunch venue was picturesque and food/service was excellent.
Great day!

“Nice experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2010

Yesterday we took a tour with Club Wine Tours/Okanagan Dinner Wine Tours and it was fun! We were picked up on time, had to make 2 more stops to pick up some people and then started at little Straw winery where we got to taste some great wines and got some inside information about the wines from the owner of the winery as well as the tour operator himself Bill. Bill made sure that everybody got to taste what they liked.
Then we visited the hidden gem Rolling Dale Winery. Something you might skip on your own, but that would be unwise because they have amazing wines! And they were very generous with poring there samples! The proprietor was there as well and it was great to talk to him as you can see his passion.
Then we visited 2 more wineries and were dropped off totally rosy at the restaurant of our choice. Bill was there to pick us up again and drive us back home safely.
Bill was very knowledgeable and did they extra mile to please everyone!

“Do not miss out on an evening of wine tasting and dinner.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2010

We were picked up at our hotel by Bill Jack our very knowledgable tour guide. We choose to do the Sunset Diiner Tour because we were arriving into Kelowna in the afternoon. We picked up the sweetest young couple that were visiting from England then headed to our first winery. We were treated to first class treatment at every vineyard that we visited, much more attention was given to us than I had ever received going on my own. The cost of the tour included all the tastings, which would have been considerable when you consider we tasted everything that we wanted.

The last stop was at Quail's Gate for somemore privileged tasting of their best wines. Then onto the dining room for an amazing dinner with the great couple that we now called our friends. We did not feel rushed to finish our meal by Jim, he let us enjoy this fantastic evening.

We were dropped off at our hotels, emails and hugs were exchanged, that ended our super day.

“Not What Was Expected”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2010

The tour started out alright, but soon had us very confused. We had a large group for a stagette and were told that it would be just us, and at first it was. At the second winery we visited we were stuffed into a corner because our guide (Bill the owner) had told them we would be there an hour earlier than we were. He then took us to a third winery, but instead of letting us out, we picked UP three people and proceeded to drive them to their accommodations. Needless to say we were NOT happy with becoming a taxi service in the middle of the tour. Then to add to the frustration, at the end of the tour we went back to the same winery where we had picked them up.

Bill seemed like a nice guy but very VERY unorganized and all a bit unprofessional. To top it all of he phoned the person who paid afterwards and tried to tell them that the deposit had not gone through, when it had. I would never recommend anyone to book with Club Wine Tours.

“Amazing Wine Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2010

My family choose Club Wine Tours for there professionalism, knowledge of the wine industry and how they reponded to me on the phone while other wine tour companies did not return my call.
I was very happy with how Bill informed us of the awards wineries have received. Kalala
was exceptional. Bill took us to the hidden gem wineries of the valley. Bill informed us of
the lunch stop as well as the organic wine experience.
Than you so much for a fantastic day out. I will recommend this to all my friends.
