“Wonderful afternoon arranged by Grape Escape”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

A group of us spent a Sunday afternoon with Grape Escape on the biking wine and cheese tour. We biked to 4 vineyards and we were provided cheese with our wine tasting at one. We also had a guided tour of one of the vineyards, well done - interesting facts provided.
The level of 'expertise' for biking ability was relatively low: easy biking! Smooth, flat surface and bikes available for all levels of bikers. Bikes were in good shape, helmets were also provided (also in good, clean shape), and our bikes were loaded with water bottles for us at the start. They even offered switching to a van on the day of if the weather turned for the worst. Very accommodating!
Any wine we purchased was picked-up by Grape Escape and brought to the start/end point where our cars were parked, so we didn't have to bike with it.
We had a few members of our group stuck in traffic and arrived a bit late. Grape Escape was very helpful with waiting for them, then biking them to join the rest of the group.
We were celebrating my birthday and Grape Escape gave me a little bag with a t-shirt and goodies, so nice of them!
They made booking and arrangements hassle-free and took care of all the details.
For $60.00/person this was an excellent way to spend an afternoon, learn about the wine making process, sample some wine, and even get a bit of exercise! Definitely recommend this tour and Grape Escape!

“4 Wineries”

We had a fantastic time with our tour guide Rob. We saw a small, medium & 2 large wine estates. The most memorable was Jackson & Triggs; we enjoyed the tour of the facilities which included an overview of the wine making process.

“Four wineries + lunch”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

We had a knowledgeable tour guide, Pat, take us to four different wineries. Pat was pleasant, funny, and passionate about giving us a glimpse into the local industry and wine making in general. It was a good value for the price, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a laid back guided tour.

“A great grape escape April tour!”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

On April 12th, we were lucky to enjoy a warm and sunny day in NOTL, and we had a very enjoyable wineries tour via bikes. Rick, our guide was very knowledges, helpful, and of course safety conscience as well! My wife and I were the only ones on the tour, and received wonderful service and plenty of useful information about the area, the types of grapes grown in the region, and the wine-making process.
The tour includes stops at 4 wineries, including a winery tour, and a cheese, crackers platter.
The bikes are in great shape, includes a bottled water, and helmet.
Highly recommended! We will be back later in the summer.
