We had an excellent guide, John, who was quite knowledgeable of the wineries. He even gave us great tips for stuff to do during the rest of our holiday in the region. We were four separate couples on the bus and we had a really lovely time. We stayed in Belleville, and for an extra $20, got picked up and dropped off at out hotel despite the distance. Next time, we'll book earlier so that we can find a B&B in the county.

We took the full day wine tour with pizza lunch. The name of our tour guide was Lizanne. She was great! We were there for my wife's birthday and we had a great day visiting several wineries, 7-8 at least. We even stopped at a micro brewery and a few art galleries! We had a pizza lunch at Norman Hardie and it was very tasty, the patio was beautiful. It overlooks the winery.

We lucked out and had a private tour since nobody else had booked one on that day. She drove us around in a nice brand new F-150 pick up truck crew cab. We went on a Friday, it was nice and quiet. The wineries weren't overcrowded.

Thanks again for a great day!

We went on a half day wine tour on Wednesday and we had the most amazing time! Our tour guide Daniel was great, and very knowledgeable. If you are going to go request Daniel!!! We went to sandbanks, huff estate, granger, and hinterland. Just the most amazing time because of Daniel and the group we had!

We had a great day on the guided tour of a few of the Prince Edward County winery's (5) from Sandbanks Vacation Tours. They picked us up at our accommodation and took care of everything all day. Our guide Daniel was very knowledgeable and happy to share his knowledge with us. The bistro lunch was great and the wines were excellent. A guided tour of PEC winery is definitely a great way to start your wine adventure.

My husband and I went on the 1/2 day Sandbanks tour on Sunday and it was really enjoyable. Our driver, Liz, picked us up at our Inn and then picked up the other couple driving with us. There were only 5 of us so a pickup truck was all that was needed. It was a new truck and was very comfortable. Liz made the tour very interesting and had a great deal of knowledge about the wineries and their owners. She was willing to stop at any of the other points of interest if the group wanted to and extended or shortened our stay at the wineries if she sensed that the group needed more or less time there. Cold bottled water was provided and, as the day was hot, that was very necessary. The tour paid for all the wine samples, so that part made the experience less confusing and add to the stress free feeling of the day. I would recommend this trip to anyone who loves scenic drives and drinking wine! You certainly could do the drive on your own but you would need a driver. As a couple, we chose a tour so we could both sample the wine and we felt that it was worth the money we paid. We discussed the full day tour as we drove and decided it would be too long and add a lot to the cost of the day. Our choice of the 1/2 day tour was perfect for us. Thanks, Liz!
