Know More about this tour

Driving from winery to winery is nice, but cycling between wineries is better! On this Niagara-on-the-Lake cycle and wine-tasting tour, bike along peaceful country roads and trails, stopping at the area's best wineries. The Niagara-on-the-Lake wine region is part of the greater Wine Country Ontario and is famous for a variety of delicious wines. This tour allows you to sample many, including Ontario's famous ice wine. The relaxing pace and relatively flat bike paths offer easy riding (even after a couple glasses of wine).

After meeting at the start location, your guide will lead you through the historic Niagara-on-the-Lake area and on to four or five wineries (depending on option selected) ranging from large-scale operations to boutique, family-owned vineyards. If you decide to buy a bottle (or 10!), your purchases will be picked up and brought to you when you finish the tour.

Half-Day Tour with Cheese Pairing:
Visit four Niagara-on-the-Lake wineries during this 4.5-hour tour, starting with a vineyard-to-tasting-room guided tour at one of the region's largest and most iconic wineries. Continue to three boutique wineries for more wine tasting, including Pondview Estates Winery, one of the newest wineries in the area, where youll enjoy a specialty cheese platter for a delicious cheese and wine pairing.

Full-Day Tour with Picnic Lunch: Begin this 6.5-hour tour with a leisurely cycle to one of Niagara-on-the-Lakes largest wineries, where youll have a full vineyard tour and a wine tasting. Next, cycle to the beautiful Harvest Barn or Caroline Cellars for a picnic lunch of sandwiches, salads, fruits and sweets. After lunch, continue with more wine tastings at three to four wineries, including boutique, small-production vineyards.

    Our guide was Thom. He started by picking us up at our hotel and on the way a few other couples. On the way to the start of the tour, Thom gave us some tidbits of information about Niagara-on-the-Lake and other interesting facts about wine and the area. The actual tour was great! The wine definitely did not make it easy to pedal but that seemed to only be my problem as I wasn't holding my alcohol as well as the rest of the bunch! Thom was incredibly considerate and caring and always made sure that the group stuck together and no one was left behind. If the ride became a little tiring by the end he made sure to give us a break and a sit down during the wine tastings. All the wineries were great! I would recommend though, that if you aren't able to drink a lot not to do any of the extra tastings that some of the wineries offer, because it will make it very difficult for you to ride back after the tours! Otherwise, it was a wonderful experience and Thom was a great and fun guide! I would definitely recommend this tour for you if you love wine and bike riding. It's the safest way to do both together.

    The wine-tasting tour was truly exceptional. We liked all of the wineries, the cycling, the great interaction with the group, our guide Marcy and guides/bartenders/personnel at the locations. There is no better way to experience the area! We had a blast and highly recommend the tour to anyone interested in active leisure and/or delicious wine. Lunch at the beautiful Caroline Cellars Farmhouse Cafe was delicious! A separate thank you to Marcy for excellent pacing of the tour, the valuable information and tips. We will remember the experience for a long time!

    I booked the half day tour as a girlie day out for myself and my best friend to catch up. We had such a good experience from start to finish, beginning with a complimentary shuttle service from our hotel by the falls to Niagara on the lake, from where we got to cycle and tour around 4 winery’s with a sample of 4 wines in each destination - great value for a brilliant day out

    I would highly recommend this tour. Our guide, Edie, was great. It was not strenuous, but with the headwinds, you got a workout. All four vineyards were great. The first one was, in our opinion, the best.

    Great guide, organized and fun! Biking was really nice and the vineyards were lovely. Definitely will look into taking another tour in the future!

    This was such a fun experiance. Lucky for us it was a beautiful day for biking. Our guide was the sweetest lady. We can’t wait to visit again a small do another all day tour.

    Despite the rainy weather at the start of our tour, we thoroughly enjoyed the bike ride and wine tour. It was a relatively easy bike ride and the scenery was beautiful. We went to four different wineries and each one was unique. Our tour guide was great and very conscientious with regards to making sure everyone was keeping up. Great tour!

    We had a great time. Our guide was fantastic and we had a great group of fellow bikers. We also had a
    perfect day weather-wise. We would recommend this to anyone who likes wine, the outdoors, and is
    comfortable riding a bike for a few hours, with breaks.

    We did this with our tow adult sons. The four of us thoroughly enjoyed it. Our group was a nice size and our two guides were fantastic. We toured three small wineries and one larger winery. All four were unique and had their positives and negative. The bicycling was mostly flat, so it was incredibly easy and the weather was perfect. Water was provided as well. We did no do the optional picnic lunch and we kind of wished we would have.....there's always next time. We would Highly Recommend!!

    It was a very lovely day. Enjoyed the tour and the ride. The guide was lovely and we lucked out with some awesome people on the tour. Would have been nice to see a winery in production. And maybe a little less time spent at each winery. I know we were on a schedule, but a lot of standing around. Would recommend it.
