Cara, Please can you help us plan a visit?
My husband, who likes his wine, and me too - both from UK, are visiting my daughter in Vancouver in mid December for Chrsitmas and New Year.
My husband's mobility isn't good.
I won't drive in Canada.
How is it best to have an enjoyable and relaxing visit and tour of the wine country?
Could we take a bus so we can enjoy the scenery - or is that not feasible?
Where should we stay? And how long would we need to stay for?
Could this be done over 20th or 21st December - 23rd December, so that we are with my daughter for Christmas?
Or do we need to re-think where we go?
Is the Okanagan is much colder than Vancouver?
We could postpone our return to UK and do this over the weekend of 8 - 11th January if this is more practical.
Thanks for your help.
Thank you for your interest in our tours. I would not advise taking a Wine Tour during these dates. My reason for this is, the weather for travelling over the mountain pass can be very unpredictable. You mentioned your husband has mobility issues, the parking lots at wineries and entries can be icey. I would not want to take the chance. Perhaps you can come and visit when the weather is better, May through October.
My apologies for not convincing you to chance the weather and join us on a tour. It would be too risky.
Enjoy your visit to Vancouver. We hope to see you here in Okanagan Wine Country when the weather is better.
Best wishes for the Holidays!
With kind regards,
