Dino was extremely helpful setting up the tour. He's very personable and knowledgeable about wine making and the Penticton area. We enjoyed the wine tasting, the information provided on the drives between the wineries and the delicious snacks provided. We highly recommend Grape Escapes!

Dino from Grape Escapes was a fantastic guide into the world of Okanagan wine. Despite our very last-minute booking he put together a great experience for us. It was both informative and fun. Well worth the very modest price.

I think it might be harder to tour around locals in the off season - but our tour of Bottleneck Drive for Light up the Vines in Summerland this past Saturday night was stellar! Dino was a great guide!

Dino was a wonderful guide for Light up the vines in Summerland. Can't rave about it enough! Super knowledgeable. He even had a cooler of road snacks packed for us.

It was my first time visiting the Naramata Bench so it was great to visit a good number of wineries. Dino was very knowledgeable and super welcoming! I appreciated the short lesson in the beginning but I thought there'd be a bit more. Other than the 5S's, I guess I wanted to know what to look for in the wine... More

We just finished the Naramata Bench tour with Dino, who has a wealth of knowledge about wine, geography and all things Okanagan. He was very pleasant, took us to a variety of interesting wineries and made sure we were having a great day. Wonderful picnic snacks as well. Would highly recommend this tour if you want to taste some great... More

I have to say Dino and the Grape Escapes Wine Tour was the very best tour I've ever taken in all of my travels! I highly recommend Dino and his team to anyone thinking of spending time in the Okanagan. Dino was exceptional, puntual and personable! He is very cognizant of the wine domain and is educative about the area... More

We had a wonderful and memorable day with Dino. His knowledge of wines is above and beyond what you would normally expect from a guide. He is accredited with a WSET level 3; which anyone who is familiar with the program would know it's not for the faint hearted. We were privileged to enough to see a crush in progress... More

The gal (owner?) who drove us to the different wineries was super friendly and had oodles of suggestions about where to go and what wine to try. Some of the wineries we hoped to visit were not open so we tried several wineries we might not have visited otherwise. Our grand finale was at a lovely winery and restaurant which... More

Hello, SS from Nelson! I believe your review is on the wrong business as the owner (me) is definitely not a "gal," nor did we have any female guides employed during your visit in April. There is one tour company (with a similar name) in Penticton owned by a woman but it is not us! Please contact Trip Advisor to... More
