We were lucky enough to be able to book one if the trolleys for a private wine tour in Summerland. It was such a special experience and the organization for the day went off without a hitch. All our stops had been pre-arranged by Grape Savvy and were very personalized. Our charcuterie lunch stop always amazing with locally sourced meats and cheeses. I highly recommend booking a tour with Grape Savvy even if you are a local as it was a new way to experience this beautiful area. The trolley made for great fun and great photo opportunities. The driver was excellent and made the experience very fun.

We booked Savvy and her trolley for a wine tour this past weekend for a total of 17 people and we had the best time ever. Savvy and her driver Paul took us to beautiful wineries along the bench and stopped at a cindery for a charcuterie lunch. Everything was arranged for us and we had an absolute blast. We just got to sit back, enjoy, and catch up as friends. The views were fantastic and Savvy was an amazing guide and hostess. Herding is us like herding cats, and she got us organized and on our way- even letting us play our tunes at top volume. I couldn’t recommend this experience more, it was so wonderful. Thank you Savvy for making it happen!!

Savannah is amazing! I have done both her private tour and her trolley hop on hop off experience. Both are first rate. She also books out the trolley for private groups and weddings. Fantastic!!

Such a great way to enjoy the beautiful Naramata Bench…. The mapping of the stops was great and the walk times were very accurate. Spent the full day hopping on/off … will make this a regular summer event….. and we are locals 😊.

Definitely recommend 5/5.

I can't begin to thank Savvy enough. My husband and I were recently married and had friends visiting from Europe and the United States for our wedding. It had been 8 years since our group had all been together and we wanted to plan something special. My husband is originally from the Okanagan so we had already visited many wineries and even had the chance to take a wine tour with a different company in the past. From the moment I reached out to Savvy, she was determined to make our experience AMAZING. She really went above and beyond to make our day unique, fun, beautiful, and memorable. Savvy is extremely knowledgeable, which allowed us to expand our understanding of wine and the region. We had a day that brought us all together and created memories of a lifetime. Thank you Savvy, we are so appreciative!

We had a great tour with Savvy. She is knowledgeable, professional, but also a ton of fun, the perfect combo for a tour operator. The tour itself took us to unique wineries, and we got personalized private tastings. Savvy took great care of us, and had things organized before we even knew we wanted them. Our group could be a bit like herding cats, but Savvy managed it all with a giant smile on her face. I highly recommend her, and will book with her again without hesitation. Cheers!

Such a fun and unique way to experience the Naramata Bench wineries! Mr. Merlot is the name of the purple (grape) trolley which I travelled on. Mr Merlot is the way to go! Mr. Merlot’s driver Ian was a professional, knowledgeable, relaxed and skilled driver who created a fun environment for us to access wineries on the Naramata bench. He was very hospitable, considerate and conscientious and took great care of my 92 year old father. He also was the king of the “ring-a-ding” as he clanged the vintage trolley bell throughout our journey to say “hi” and put a smile on faces as we passed by! Not only was his enthusiasm contagious - he also knew how to navigate this purple grape dream machine around tight corners and shared the road with the rest of the users on this well travelled transportation corridor. A refreshing breeze circulated through the trolley which helped keep us cool during a hot summer day. Ever since the trolley started up this spring I was keen to hop on board. Finally the opportunity arrived to trolley the bench and it didn’t disappoint. I’m already making plans to hop on again! THANK you Grape Savvy for offering a different option for visiting Naramata’s winery buffet!

This wine tour was an exceptional experience hosted by Savvy. This was my first trip to the Bench and with Savvy's connections, we were able to access some truly beautiful locations for tastings. Savvy really knows her stuff and was able to answer all our questions. The transportation was also spacious and safe, and included a little treat for us all which was truly the cherry on top. Thank you for making our trip magical!

Three wine connoisseurs and three wine connoisumers spent a most amazing day with wine Savant Savannah, and at the end of the day - everyone got more than they wanted and left with a beautiful wine 'glow'. Savannah picked us up at our hotel and invited us into her life long passion and history of working the land in vineyards across the globe, her education in Tourism and Vinology and building relationships with vineyard owners, restauranteurs and hotel owners/managers across the Okanagan valley. It is both her first hand knowledge and those personal relationships that Savannah has cultivated that made our day so special. We started our day at a vineyard where Savannah worked every job from the ground up for years. We met the owner and he opened one of his special bottles of wine for us - telling us the story of how the family that farmed grapes grew into a family that made award winning wines. That was the start of a day of personal highlights - invitations to the lives, passions and fruits of the labour of five unique wineries in the area. If you are just looking to drink a lot of wine at a low cost, this may not be the tour for you. If you are looking for a grape tour that transports you to the sacred process of cultivating, picking, crushing, fermenting, barreling and decanting grapes – then this is perfect. And for those of us that were not connoisseurs, we sure learned a lot about wines – no snobbery attached! I’m going back for another round next year!
