We booked a private tour with Laila and she was fantastic, as was the tour. She was prompt and very knowledgeable and made sure we got the most out of our day. The vineyards we toured were beautiful and Laila offered many tips and insights along the way. I would highly recommend the private tour. It’s more intimate and safer during these times of Covid.

In July 2021, my mom and I booked the Deluxe Private Wine Tour with Go North Tours. We were picked up at 10am at our Halifax hotel, and retuned by 4pm. Laila was our guide for the day, and was extremely knowledgable about the Nova Scotia wine industry. She was extremely friendly, and made for a very enjoyable day together. Laila has also traveled in Canada and internationally to other wine regions, which brought a good perspective in contrast to the local industry and products. We selected tastings at Luckett Vineyards, Benjamin Bridge, and Planters Ridge. We also requested a quick stop at L’Acadie Vineyards to purchase bottles of their world renowned sparkling wines. Laila also inquired on our favorite flavour profiles in wine. This then enabled her to make great recommendations of specific wines to taste, base on her own knowledge of the local products. At each vineyard, we tasted at least 4 wines. Sparkling and white wines (including the Tidal Bay) are really the highlight in this wine region of Canada, and was the focus of our tastings. The dry Riesling from Planters Ridge was a great discovery! The white Ortega from Luckett Vineyards was delicious! Tasting different Tidal Bay at each vineyard was also interesting, to compare their different flavour profiles. But there are also experimental products to be discovered, like the Benjamin Bridge “Piquette” and “Pet Nat”. For lunch, Laila had secured an outdoor terrace table at Luckett Vineyards, right alongside the grapes in the field. On a sunny, hot, and slightly windy day, this was the perfect setting!!! The chicken sandwich and salad were really delicious, with quality ingredients, including that home made focaccia bread! Laila also had us bypass the long queue of visitors waiting for lunch and tasting, which was greatly appreciated. Overall, we are glad we booked with Laila from Go North Tours. It was a great balance of knowledge, friendly discussions, and very smooth journey from beginning to end. We finished the day with a few cases of wines to bring back home!

We loved every part of our tour. Lilah was an amazing guide and helped us make the most of our time at each winery we visited. Having a private tour as a couple was a huge bonus and was very reasonably priced. We enjoyed tasting many different wines and will definitely be back.
