We had a great day on our private 3 person tour with Mike! He was very passionate and informative and took us to all the wineries that we requested that had openings that day within our time frame. Very kind and interesting to talk to during the drive. The sommeliers and staff at the wine tours all knew him and he seemed to be e favourite guide around.
Terri, his wife, worked very hard to book us in with less than 24 hours notice and managed to get us a great lineup of vineyards.
We only went to four wineries due to personal circumstances but I would recommend 6 since they are all so beautiful and the tastings are very small.
I definitely recommend booking with distinctly Kelowna! You will have a great day I can guarantee it.

Mike is a terrific wealth of wine knowledge! He is VERY well prepared with the appropriate level of knowledge (and more) of each winery on the tour. Incredibly, they were able to get us into two of our very exclusive wineries we really wanted to visit.

HIGHLY recommend these folks with a special shout out to Mike as the best Kelowna wine tour host we have ever experienced.

Well done and thank you so very much for making our special day truly the best!

Distinctly Kelowna Tours was very accommodating and flexible from the start. We were able to custom our private tour so the winery selections were amazing. The best thing about the tour though has got to be Mike, our driver and tour guide. Mike was so enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and passionate! So happy he was there to share his knowledge and passion with us because we learned a little bit more about BC wines and the art of wine tasting even outside of the wineries.

What a wonderful experience! From booking to the end of the day, Terri and Michael made our wine tour of Kelowna an easy and beautiful day. I was planning a surprise day for my two friends and Terri really helped narrow down wineries and a lunch spot that would suit us best. Michael picked us up, was very polite, funny and knowledgeable. We really appreciated all of the information about the history and geology that he was able to provide. It was apparent to us that Michael has a true passion for not only the industry but educating his guests. He also has great rapport with the staff of the wineries which enhanced our visits at each stop. We will recommend Distinctly Kelowna Tours to everyone who visits! Thank you Terri and Michael.

If you are looking for a fun and informative wine tour, you need to book with Distinctly Kelowna Tours. The wine routes are customizable to what you want to see and do. The buss picks you up and drops you off where you choose, and is vary comfortable.
I will absolutely do this tour again! Infact my coworkers were so jelous about our experience they have started planning for a large groop getaway and we will be asking for Michael as our tour director. He is vary passionate about the work he dose and has a lot of knowledge about the wineries that you get to visit.
Michael even went as far as explaining how to hold the glass for our first time wine drinker. He taught her the different ways to smell red and white wines, and he did it all with fun trivia games so the hole buss had fun. I've been on a few tours and this one is the only one I'll recommend. Fantastic survice and an awesome time. Thanks for it all.

We booked a Zip & Sip tour for my mom’s 60th birthday and we had an experience we will never forget. Terri & Mike were amazing to deal with from start to finish. The tour was booked with Terri and she made the booking process a breeze. She was quick to respond, friendly and helpful. Mike was our tour guide for the day and was truly amazing. He was prompt, professional, funny, engaging, informative, accommodating…the list goes on. Mike played a huge role in making my mom’s special day such a success. We would book with Distinctly Kelowna again in a heartbeat and would 100% recommend to anyone considering booking a tour. Thank you so much Terri and Mike!

Mike and Terri made our group feel special from the beginning to end of our wine tour. We really enjoyed how knowledgeable Mike was about each winery and learned a lot along the way. I would highly recommend Distinctly Kelowna Tours to any wine lovers who are passing through the Okanagan. Their customer experience was second to none and we will be touring again with them in the future!

This is our second time taking a private tour with Distinctly, and I would take another next time I am in Kelowna! Terri is incredibly easy to book with, and was able to accommodate my requests for wineries. Mike was our tour guide this trip and all of our guests raved about him. He was funny, easy going, and engaging. A real personality and an overall good time. 10/10 would recommend!

I had the most wonderful experience with my wine tour. Visiting from Edmonton Mike made our experience very welcoming , educational and fun! He is such a warm and kind individual who’s main goal was that we were happy and satisfied throughout our tour. We were able to visit 4 wineries and he truly picked up on small details and was able to make our experience that much more enjoyable. THANK YOU MIKE! Can’t wait to come and do this again next year . Clean and beautiful bus , wonderful and welcoming host and made sure all of our wine that we liked was ready for purchase when we asked . I cannot say much more except you MUST book this company!
