  • We were picked up by Stephen in a limo, very nice. The wineries were interesting although things seemed rather rushed. Lunch was excellent. We were somewhat disappointed when we were told after lunch that there would only be one more tasting. It was our 4th and we had been expecting 5 tastings and an 8 hour day, ours only lasted 6 hours. So overall a nice day but disappointing as we had paid for more than we got.

  • The day was enjoyable. It could be improved by a guide who was more familiar with the wine region.

  • The tour was fantastic. Through Viator, Wild BC Tours's driver (Jose) picked 3 of us in a white Cadillac limo at our hotel. Jose was very professional and helpful. Jose took us to two wineries (Wellbrook Winery and Township 7) and at the third winery (Backyard Vineyards), Jose ordered for us appetizers complimenting the wines. Then, since the Domaine de Chaberton Estate Winery was closed on Tuesday (our tour day), Jose suggested that we would have lunch on the coast and took us to a restaurant in White Rock, BC, where we had a delicious lunch looking over the sea. On the way back to Vancouver to our hotel, Jose took us to Lulu Island Winery where we met the owner who provided us with at least nine different kinds of wine, including icewine which we have not tasted before and have no knowledge of how the icewine is made. Thank you again Jose, Wild BC Tours, and Viator for such a memorable experience.

  • We were unable to do the tour due to illness, so can't comment. The provider was unable to offer an alternative date. Very sad and very much out of pocket :(

  • We had a stretch limo and private driver for the two of us. Lunch was delicious and quite gourmet. We went to four wineries but passed on the fifth. Our driver, Steven, grew up in the area and took us to places the "locals" go. We saw White Rock beach with lines of fish and chips restaurants, a local hangout. Then he took us to Elizabeth Park which is a small version of Butchart Gardens. A very enjoyable day!

  • Seriously misleading description. This was not a scenic tour at all; there was nothing like the photo and we spent most of the time on highways. While our guide was excellent and did try to make the day interesting, there were a few concerning deficiencies. No water was provided, even at the wineries. In fact, when we asked, a winery manager told us they were saving the bottled water they had for the next tour and had nothing to sell us. The large car was comfortable but it was very difficult for those in the back seat to hear Steve's commentary. There were no nibbles or palate cleansers offered in most wineries, nor were the glasses changed as tasting progressed. However, the quality of the lunch was excellent. All considered, we don't think we can recommend this tour in its present form.

  • This tour is not as good value as others we have experienced. The wineries were quite disappointing with the exception of the Wellbrook winery. Most were rather soulless and just involved standing at the counter of an outbuilding to try the wines. The local tour guide did all he could to make the day as interesting as possible but we were also disappointed that the lunch was at a local seaside restaurant rather than at a winery. Our guide advised us the winery restaurant did not open on certain days but there was no mention of this in the tour description. We would have chosen a different day had we known this.

  • We visited 7 wineries. Our tour guide/driver was very good. My only complain is that some wineries did not offer any little snacks (crackers, etc) I do not drink if I do not eat something. I had to buy a box of crackers at the first place we stopped.

  • We assumed that our private "limo" tour would be in a limo with the back all to ourselves like most limos. Instead we had a white 1995 limo with blue leather bench seats with 4 seperate doors so my wife and I sat in the middle seat and our friends in the back and the driver directly in front of us like our dad driving us around. Not exactly what we had planned - when booking the trip I didn't think I had to ask if we would have a decent limo or not. This would be something you should disclose to your customers. We were hoping to be able to have a nice conversation and maybe share a glass of wine together but this was not possible with our friends directly behind us and the windows untinted.

  • I had obviously not read the advertising material well enough. I had expected a bus tour and we were surprised when we met our liimousine and our own guide - Chuck. We met our objective this day of seeing more of the country outside Vancouver city and incidentally visiting some of the local vineyards. Chuck changed his planned itenerary to cater for our interests. The guide was able to answer our many questions on life in British Columbia. A lovely relaxing day out in the country with wonderful hosts.
