Awesome experience!! Fun times with family and friends. The driver/ tour guide, Stuart Wooldridge was exactly knowledgable about the region, the micro climates, the different grapes and many other things.He was flexible with the groups needs and had a great sense of humour.

This was our second year in a row and once again Grape Escapes provided us with a high quality tour. This time we chose the Oliver - Osoyoos area and Simon picked out several excellent wineries for us. Once again the tour was leisurely, relaxed and comfortable and Simon was a fountain of knowledge about the area and wine in general. Highly recommended.

We have taken a wine tour every year for the past three years at Thanksgiving with Grape Escapes. The variety of tours is wonderful for repeat customers, the tour guides are very knowledgeable, friendly and make you feel relaxed and not rushed when taking your time to explore each winery. The wineries chosen are always a pleasant surprise and really add variety to the tour (bread pairings with wine!, ciders!) and the bus pick-up/drop-off and ride are always a plus. Keep up the great work Grape Escapes. See you again next October!

I booked this tour as a birthday gift for my husband. In addition to a beautiful and enjoyable day wine tasting, Grape Escapes ensured that we all celebrated his day. From taking photos to sharing stories about the history of the area and the wineries, our tour guide was a great part of the day. We began with a short tasting lesson, great way to begin, and off we went to explore 5 smaller wineries along the bench that we would likely not have selected on our own. Some real gems among them including the gorgeous Lake Breeze winery and some great wines at Moraine. Door to door service was another plus!
