    The tour guide was great, timely and energetic. The bus was a little hot , since the forecast was 31°C . All the winery were great and had great selections, history and passion for wine.

    Fun way to spend a day in NOTL!

    Really fun way to spend a day and we learned a lot. Our bus driver/tour guide was also fantastic! The “cheese” aspect of the tour is misleading because we only got a small plate at one of the stops. We were able to grab lunch in town quickly between wineries but only because scheduling got screwed up and there was too much time between bookings. This was likely just a one-time thing though due to bus malfunctions! Overall a fun experience.

    Fun trip! All wineries were worth of visiting. Chris, our guide, made this trip memorable and amazing. He gave us a lot of interesting facts about grape growing and wine making…he was friendly, funny, and accommodating. We would do it all over again!

    Chris, our tour guide and driver, was awesome. He really set the tone and was so welcoming. We were able to visit a mix of wineries - big and small. The only thing that we missed was a tour of the "behind the scenes" details of wine-making. We have done a 4-winerie tour in the past and were able to walk through the different rooms used during the process and also the cellars. It was so interesting to see the difference between the big names and the small-batch wineries. Maybe it is a consequence of Covid and increased restrictions. I hope they bring this back!

    Positive Points We really enjoyed the Hinterbook, Riverview and Between the lines. They had great staff, wines and service. Our driver Mitch Kavanagh was awesome. Kept us hydrated, super friendly and got us in each winery on time. He even showed us around the town and taught us history. Disappointment The initial text for pick up was not received so I had to call to inquire. Only then to discover that the pickup was much later (12:15) vs the initial tour around 11. Also the initial wineries that were in email were not the ones we were going to. I was looking forward the the 4 initially listed, the alternatives worked out with the exception of Josephs, we felt the winery room we went to was outdated, the wines were not very good and the host vibes were not to par as the other places. We had about 16 in our group. Only ask is that we get the list of the wineries only after they are confirmed, or at least make it more clear in email that the wineries may change. There could be a chance that the wineries listed, may have been visited before. I would still recommend this tour. Overall the tour was great even with the minor changes and delay. Cheers Lisa S

    Chris did a great job as the organizer/ driver. We had a lot of fun with the 2 other couples on the tour as well as the 3 bridal parties. I enjoyed the first winery stop Parridesio and the last one the most from a quality experience perspective. The first one was intimate with good wine and rte last one the wine maker was a font of knowledge on the wine industry. The other two were commercial in nature - stuck in an upstairs room - not great. Overall a great day!

    We were put on a bus with a Bachelorette party that was rowdy and rude. I think the company needs to recommend private busses for these groups to allow them, as well as other passengers, the ability to enjoy their wine tour experience. If the groups need to be intermingled, I feel there should be some boundaries set up by the company to respect everyone's enjoyment.

    Sour Grapes

    Our tour guide forgot that we had a tour booked that day. He texted me a few days earlier to be outside to schedule our pick up time at the hotel for 11:10 am. When he didn’t arrive by 11:20 I texted to ask if he was on his way. He informed me that he would be there in 20 minutes (he finally picked up up 40 minutes later than originally scheduled). Second of all, He was condescending and disrespectful. He told tasteless and sexist jokes and would almost scold us if we didn’t laugh. He was tactless and rude!! This driving was reckless; as he pulled off the road several time abruptly and always drove off without his seatbelt fasten. At the end of the tour, we felt pressured to tip, but had no cash. We arrange to send him a tip via e-transfer. (Hovered over us and insisted on taking our phones to do it himself) In the end he didn’t remember the password when this was set this up with him in front of the hotel. Still kept sending me multiple texts demanding the password. At this point , i couldn’t find my car keys and asked him to check the vehicle to look for them. I indeed dropped my car key in his vehicle and he did eventually returned them to my hotel, but it felt like this was a bargaining tactic for the password/gratuity. He claims to have been doing these wine tours for many decades, but fell short on many levels. Overall, we were not impressed!! We booked this tour to have a good time and celebrate our birthdays. The wineries were great, but our tour guide put the taste of sour grapes in our mouths.

    Highly recommended as one of the things you should do when you visit niagara falls. We enjoyed the whole tour, especially with Christopher as our tour driver. He accomodated us even we have a so active toddler.
