      We had a great time! Our tour guide, David, was delightful! He shared his wealth of knowledge through out the tour and was super friendly! This was our second time doing a tour with grape escape and the vineyards we visited were just as good, if not better than the last time. All the sommeliers were also friendly and informative.

      Biking in beautiful country, delicious lunch, wine tasting and a fun and knowledgeble guide.....who could wish for more?
      This was a great way to spend the day! Booking and communication with the company was excellent. I think the wineries visited are subject to change so won't rate them individually here. Our guide was Kevin I think. He was personable, knowledgable and we thoroughly enjoyed the time with him. We cycled on flat, uncrowded country roads to start and just as we got thirsty, we stopped at our first winery for a tasting. Very fun and informative stop. After that we cycled some more and then stopped for a tasting followed by lunch with a glass of wine and a short rest. After lunch we visited 2 more wineries and did tastings there. A relaxing cycle back to the shop and our day was done. The bicycles were very comfortable and had a front basket for carrying anything you wanted (if you purchased wine it was sent to the bike office for pickup later). My husband would have liked a little higher end bike but you really didn't need many gears to travel these roads. Would highly recommend!

      Great experience and value! Grape Escape’s communication was excellent and check in was very smooth. Gwen was our guide and she was great. She is very knowledgeable about wine and did a great job leading us. Wineries were all fun, with great selections and excellent service. The route was fine, though I would have liked to be on bike paths a little more and roads with cars just a little less, though of course some of the latter are necessary to get to the wineries. Overall it was very safe and we enjoyed it immensely.

      Grape times in Niagara on the Lake:)
      Grape Escape vehicle wine tour with dinner was a fantastic way to spend an afternoon. We were picked up at our hotel by our tour guide Diane who was absolutely hilarious. We visited 3 smaller wineries located in Niagara on the lake; Between the Lines, Hinterbrook and Palatine Hills. We had a chance to taste some very flavourful wines. We ended our tour at Camm Royal Tapas bar and winery for an awesome dinner. We had a lot of laughs, shared stories and made great memories. Thanks Diane for making this a memorable experience. We highly recommend this tour.

      Had a grape time!
      We really enjoyed our time on the bike tour (we did the shorter one with 3 stops). Each stop gave us great information on the winery and the wines that we tasted. We were glad to have a snack along the way and thought the biking was easy and enjoyable. I would do this again! It was also fantastic that the wine we brought was taken back to HQ for us, and we didn't have to worry about dropping our wine along the way.

      Great experience
      Just want to first thank our guide Dave R. Dave was so knowledgeable about each winery he took us too and about the history of wine making. Dave was so lovely to talk to and made our day enjoyable even though we biked in the rain. We were a group of 5 coworkers enjoying the last bit of summer before we headed back to work in September. Out of the 3 wineries our favourite was Between the Lines and our tasting there was paired with a charcuterie plate. Between the Lines were very accommodating with our groups dietary restrictions for the charcuterie plate. We will definitely book another tour in the near future with Grape Escape!!

      Great tour. Good company
      Great tour with a guide, Dave. Wine tasting at 4 different vineyards, one including a lunch stop. Bikes were good, roads quiet, terrain flat. Even a little rain didn't dampen the spirits of the group. Well done Grape Escape

      You must try the Bike & Wine tasting Tour!!
      My Husband & I were given the Bike & Wine Tasting Tour with lunch as a gift for our Birthdays. We had so much FUN! Our Guide, Ted was a knowledgeable, personable, jovial and so informative on the Niagara region and Vineyards. We were well informed on the safety and biking instructions before starting which we greatly appreciated. We road super comfortable, light weight bikes that were well maintained. Our first comment was, “how comfortable the seats on the bikes were”! Our Lunch was delicious! We had a selection of options, portion size was large and quality was great. We definitely will be going back to that Vineyard for lunch again. The 4 Vineyards we visited were well maintained, had a variety of wine choices including Icewine and the Staff were very knowledgeable and polite. These Vineyards were hidden gems in the Niagara on the Lake region which were a pleasure for us to be introduced too. Thank you Grape Escape (Ted) for a fantastic day out! John & Elaine

      What a great experience!!
      We had such an amazing time on our full day trip! Lou was an awesome tour guide, she knew a lot about the histories of the 4 wineries we had visited. We had an amazing lunch at one of them. It was a beautiful bike ride, with beautiful scenery, and Lou kept things as safe as possible. The wineries themselves were awesome, and the winery hosts did a great job of explaining the history of their wineries, and some very interesting details of every one of the wines they poured for us. Would definitely do this again!!

      My group and I had an amazing time on our bike and wine tour. The wineries chosen all had their own fun flair and the wine selection was great. Our tour guide Kevin was awesome. He was fun & informative and made our experience super enjoyable. My group and I can’t wait to plan another tour!

    We had the good fortune to have David as our tour guide/driver for an afternoon wine tour and gourmet dinner. Our group was small, with another lovely couple on our tour as well, and we did tastings at three wineries in total (one large and two smaller), followed by a delicious dinner at the restaurant located at another winery. The wines were wonderful and so was the company. Such an enjoyable day.

    David was an amazing guide. He was so knowledgeable about the wineries we visited and you could tell the staff at each location really liked working with him. He also shared very helpful information about the local area that definitely enhanced our stay. When we are back in the Niagara region again for another visit we will be sure to use Grape Escape and definitely will request David as our guide! Many thanks for a fantastic time, and a special thank you for the very thoughtful card for our 30th anniversary.

    We did the afternoon vehicle tour and loved it. Our guide Thom was fantastic, very knowledgeable, kind, patient and friendly. Pick up was right on time at 1:30pm and we shared a vehicle with 5 other people. Covid protocols were taken very seriously and felt very safe. We went to three wineries and tasted about 5 wines at each and then were dropped off at our B&B at 5:30. Had a great time and would highly recommend! Thom was such a great guide and really made the afternoon very enjoyable.

    We had a great time visiting 3 very different wineries. Our guide David was very engaging and knowledgeable about the vineyards and local area. We booked on a quiet day and ended up getting a private tour. When we arrived a bit early he voluntarily added a drive thru tour of Niagara-on-the-Lake. We experienced great wines and great service at all the stops and would highly recommend this tour.

    In November 2022, we had a girlfriends trip to Niagara Falls and decided to join Grape Escape Wine Tour. The three of us booked the pick up and drop off tour, which includes a visit to three wineries and a gourmet dinner. Our guide, David, was friendly, knowledgable, and thoughtful. He arranged and brought us to the three wineries, a large corporate sized winery, a medium size winery and small family runned winery to experience and gain understanding of the difference in the production process and taste the amazing wines. David explained many historical highlights of the area and made you feel welcomed and safe. After the wine tour, we had a declicious, three course gourmet dinner at OLiV Restaurant. The food was as beautiful and flavourful as the highend restaurants in Toronto! We had a perfect trip and David made it that much more special. Thank you for a wonderful time.

    Pat from Grape escape was our tour guide for the morning and from the moment he picked us up from our AirBnB we knew we were going to have a great morning. Pat explained everything that was going to happen during the morning before we even got into the van, which allowed us to understand how much time we had in each location and how the morning would pan out. This was the first time I've been on a wine tasting experience so was looking forward to what it had to offer. We visited three wineries; from a small family setup to a large commercial one and I think this really gave an insight into the different scales of operation. In each location we sampled around 3 to 4 wines and even in the last venue we were provided with a sample of the ice wine. I won't list the wineries here as I believe they do select different ones for each tour. Pat was very knowledgeable about the wines and the area and was very easy to chat to and never once made us feel rushed at any stage. There is absolutely no pressure from anyone to purchase any of the wines which again made this experience very relaxing. We did end up purchasing wines between us and Pat made sure to keep the purchases safe in the van during the other winery visits. I would recommend this tour company to anyone visiting the area if you want to have a lovely relaxed morning trying the wines which are produced in the area.

    We had a great experience with our guide Peter. We went to three wonderful wineries followed by lunch. Peter was always on time, attentive, handled all the details so we could have a great time. The only suggestion that Grape Escapes can pass on to the wineries would be to have a small bite with the tastings - we were definitely looking for snacks with our wine samples

    We booked Grape Escape during our honeymoon trip for the tasting tour plus dinner and we had such a wonderful time. It ended up being just the two of us and our guide, David, who truly made our experience even more than we ever expected. David was absolutely fantastic, giving us anecdotes throughout the tour about the region and it's history and going above and beyond at every stop to make sure we were well taken care of. It was clear to us that he loves what he does and made us feel so welcome and special. We can't say enough good things about David and Grape Escapes!

    We had a lovely afternoon with Graham. He picked us up at our hotel and took us to 3 wineries (Hinterbrook, Lakeview and Between the Lines). He gave us lots of information and history about the wineries in the area and showed us around Niagara on the Lake. He was also knowledgeable about wine and some of the wines we tried. All of the staff at the wineries were lovely. Special thanks to Elaine at Between the Lines who individualized the tastings specifically for my husband and for me (slightly different tastes in wine). We enjoyed chatting with Graham and would have loved to have had a drink with him! We've toured before with Grape Escapes and we will be back.

    David was an excellent tour guide! He was friendly, personable, and made our experience great. We were picked up right on time at our hotel. We were taken to three wineries and the tour was well organized by Grape Escape. The first two stops were fantastic - informative, engaging, and well-structured. We were a little disappointed with the Inniskillin stop (where we were handed samples at the bar but received no information about the wines, production, or winery), but that was no fault of our tour guides. We'd definitely recommend booking through Grape Escape if you want to do a winery tour!
