    We had a wonderful time. Our driver, John was super friendly and knowledgeable. My sister and I really enjoyed ourselves. Our tour mates was a lovely couple from Singapore. The lunch provided was tasty and ample.

    Colleen is a wonderful, warm-hearted person who truly makes these tours special and memorable. We stopped by 4 wineries including a beautiful lavender farm where they use the lavender to make a vast array of products like lotions, creams, pillows and even their own specially made local wine. I hope Colleen expands her travel offerings, as I will definitely be an eager participant!

    I went on this wine tour just this past weekend. Colleen was very nice. My group arrived late and she was very understanding and patient with us . Once on the bus she was very knowledgeable and funny. The trip was long but she made it feel quicker and painless. I love the variety of wineries we went to. Had a lovely day and bought a good amount of wine . Colleen went above and beyond my expectations. Thank you Colleen!!!

    Hi Colleen! We had a fabulous time - thank you for your hospitality and for sharing your very thorough knowledge of the area. Lunch was wonderful - the lovely Tiffins hold a lot! A great variety of delicious items. The schedule of wineries was perfect. On time and fun packed. I was a bit surprised that two of the wineries offered tastings using the same glass. Both red and white wines served in the same glass. Overall - I highly recommend this tour. Thank you so much, Julie

    Colleen took us to three unique and distinctive wineries and organized a tasty picnic lunch, providing a wonderful and relaxing introduction to the beautiful Cowichan Valley. Highly recommended!

    Wonderful way to see more of the area and learn about some of the wines of the region Wendy was our driver. She was very friendly, knowledgeable, cheerful and so eager to show us as much as she could pack into the day! We visited 3 wineries and they were very different from each other which made the tour even more interesting. Lunch was delicious!! It was such an enjoyable tour. Definitely would do it again!

    This was a great trip. We had a great group. We visited 3 wineries starting with Venturi-Schulze then Blue Grouse where we had an excellent picnic lunch with our wine tasting and we finished at Zanata. Coleen the owner of the tour company was the driver. She was great and very knowledgeable about the wines and the area.

    Colleen the owner/operator & our tour guide for the day was excellent. Very friendly, good sense of humour & pleasant with all the tourists. Very well known & respected by all the Winery Owners/Operators that we visited this day. The little special lunch kits that she provided during our stop at Blue Grouse were very well received & enjoyed by all the patrons. Excellent Very different presentation & very tasty food to enjoy during the excellent wine tasting. All the wineries that we visited this day, all had their own special blends, very different selections & varieties to choose from. Had a perfect day to enjoy the wineries, the pleasant scenery & drive along the coastline. Colleen certainly takes it to the next level to ensure you have a full day & enjoy the experience. Great most enjoyable bus tour, a great day to see some of the countryside & also their local businesses.
