Fantastic experience with good combination of four different restaurants from starter to dessert. And Nick was a great company! Worth it!

A great night out walking around the downtown area. We got to meet and chat with some new people and had a great time. The directions to the meeting spot were quite accurate. The weather was cold, but the walks between destinations were not so long as to be uncomfortable. The food and wine pairings were excellent with the stops being adventurous enough for those who enjoy that, but not so different that a meat and potato type would be put off. All in all lots of fun had!

We had booked a tour for Valentines Day and were quite excited to go as we had heard how fun these tours are. We arrived at the meeting spot and no one was there, no guide or other tour guests.
Another couple then arrived for the same tour, they had received an email about the tour starting early, but we never received that email.
We all waited over 30 minutes and no one ever showed. We all called, texted, Facebook messaged and so on and got no reply. We were pretty disappointed with how a company that runs at night, had no support running for I
instances such as this. Overall, we felt that this company handles matters in a pretty unprofessional way, and recommend that they update their support system.

Hi Melisa and fellow readers Although we have already spoken, I felt I owed an explanation on here aswell. I apologize for the series of incontinence events. As the owner, I am the main point of contact for all of the tours. This particular February 14th, I was flying back into the country did not have access to my phone until later that night. Although I thought I had taken every precaution and had given our tour guide all of the information he needed to be able to contact you, he failed to do so. Once the tour started, and you were not there, he should have called to see where you were. At this point, he said he couldn't find the contact number, and with other guests waiting, he proceeded with the tour. I want to be clear we are not making an excuse and take full responsibility for what happened that night and have made sure that something like this won't happen again. We can only offer our sincere regrets that we did not do more to prevent this from happening and ​offer a full refund and a complimentary tour for you and your date when convenient.

My husband and I had a fabulous time. Nick showed us the ropes and made our tour interactive and flow seamlessly. We appreciated that the 4 restaurants were all different and unique to one another. The food was great, as was the company- would definitely recommend!

Our host showed up in sneakers, jeans and a hoodie, not setting a good tone for a foodie tour of nice restaurants. He made his best awkward jokes to try and cover the fact that he didn't know what wines we were being served, or what we were about to eat.
Maybe we're just picky because we've done a lot of tours, but we were expecting to learn about what we're being served, maybe a little local history, Instead we walked away a little bored, and still hungry.

Thank you for your review. I will address this with our guide. We don't enforce a uniform, but do instruct our guide to dress professionally when conducting the tours. The guide should have been familiar with the menu and wines, but we tend to leave the explanation of the wine to restaurant Sommolieres, I apologize for the poor experience.​

The tour guide was super nice and tried to talk to everyone and make everyone feel comfortable. The food was really good and was awesome to experience as an Ottawa local. I would definitely go back to each place to try other food. I was worried about the price at the beginning but by the end I would definitely say it was worth it. Definitely a fun experience if you're not someone who goes out for fancier dinners.

Hi Mr, West Thank you for such a positive review. We understand the price is typically a little more than most people spend on a dinner out but we do our best to provide the added value and unique experience. I am glad you had a good time!

The dinner limo tour was the perfect way to experience Ottawa’s restaurant scene. The food was delicious, the wine or beer pairings were excellent as were the explanations of each course. Thanks Corey for a great night on the town for my friends and I!

We met on a very rainy late October night for a warm fun evening. We visited 4 restaurants, making this a "progressive dinner" with a wine tasting at each course. We thought the food and wines were good. Our guide, Travis, was very knowledgeable and interesting. We enjoyed the evening and meeting/visiting with the other couples that we toured with. We thought it was a worthwhile intro to Ottawa.

We booked the self-guided tour for a more intimate date night! I can't say enough good things about this tour. Very well organized and scheduled, the food was delicious and the wine parings were perfect. We didn't feel rushed at any restaurant as there is minimal waiting time since your table is reserved and your food is ready when you arrive. Although it was a rainy evening it didn't take away from the experience. Highly recommend it even if you've lived in Ottawa your entire life!

Our kids had given us gift certificates for this progressive dinner evening. As it turned out, we chose a cold wet night but that did not deter us or Corey or his colleague Travis who is also a semelier. Just the four of us. We went to four locations, none of which were familiar to us even though we live in Ottawa, and the food and wine pairings were all creative and very, very good. Everything was ready by the time we arrived at each restaurant and while Corey pushed us along to a schedule (he could slow up the transition walking a tad to be able to describe the Market in more detail), we did not feel rushed at the restaurants and the conversation flowed easily. Meeting a few other people would perhaps have added to the evening but we thoroughly enjoyed the tour, the great food, and chattting with the tour company owners over the 21/2 hours.
