We had a fantastic time with John from Sandbanks! We were a group of four and had a private tour with John because we went on a Monday (which is usually slower than the weekend).

John was incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and very open to collaboration/input about the tour. A few of us had destinations in Prince Edward County that we wanted to see (Norman Hardie, The Drake), and John tailored the tour so we could fit all of it in. We had door-to-door pick up and drop off from Kingston and the tour ran from 10am-6pm. We had a lovely lunch at Norman Hardie and got to visit five wineries.

It was a great day that was well worth the price. John was a great guide and I would absolutely recommend this tour for anyone visiting the County or surrounding areas!

Daniel did an excellent job at showing us some of the smaller, more off the grid wineries in the county. Very knowledgable and personable! Thanks for making the brides bachelorette a success

We had an amazing afternoon with Bob our driver from Sandbanks vacation tours for the afternoon half day winery tours. We where a small group of 10 peoples. The agency had not prebook any winery, so Bob had to call ahead and make sure they could take us, this initially worried me. But we did 6 wineries, they almost all had excellent wine and they all had excellent service, we where all well received. My only comment would be to have more wineries with small palate changers (crackers) or parings, but this has nothing to do with the tour company. And it was a very warm day, thankfully Bob had a cooler with cold water for the whole group. We had a blast and would do again if in the area.

We have been to some of the wineries before on our own but this time, our tour host Daniel shared wealth of information about the entire wine making process in the county that we missed during our previous visits. Very enjoyable time. If you are looking for a fund day, highly recommend you take Sandbanks Vacation Winery Tour.

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.
