Vines & Views Reviews

Jude said on May 23, 2017
When my sister first called to book a wine tour for us and her 2 daughters, we were immediately impressed by the effort made to accommodate us and our specific requests. We made the plan together and it was exactly what we wanted. Patrick, our driver and guide was so friendly, funny and knowledgeable. He never rushed us or showed any frustration whatsoever when we girls got a little off track at times. It was very valuable to us to have Patrick as our guide as he was able to speak to the people at the wineries and make sure we were taken care of especially when a few places became very busy with larger tours. ... The tour was great and if I take another tour I would definitely go with them again.

We had a fantastic time on our afternoon tour with Vines & Views! We joined them for the West Kelowna wine Tour and we were not disappointed. The first thing I noticed was the tour bus was wheelchair accessible. While I didn't need the service myself it was great to see that this company is willing to offer that service so everyone can enjoy their tours! Our driver was knowledgeable about both the wine industry and the local Okanagan area. It made a really enjoyable day! We were offered water and snacks along the way and we leisurely enjoyed each stop and had time for picture taking of the beautiful valley and lake views. We visited both large and small wineries with my favourites being Off the Grid (that has goats and chickens on site) and Indigenous World Wine that was a great example of the West Bank First Nation and the cultural diversity that the Okanagan has to offer. I would highly recommend Vines & Views as they were very professional but made us feel quite at home. Looking forward to our next tour!

Caleb the driver was not only knowledgeable about the wine and the wine industry but he gave us amazing, fun knowledge about the entire Okanagan valley! We were treated to cheese and wine and a relaxing time at Off The Grid winery which game us such an awesome opportunity just to enjoy the valley sunshine to the fullest and chat with our fellow tour goers about what we had enjoyed most. Thanks to Vines & Views for the amazing day!

Everything from the initial reception and explanation of where we were to visit that day to the in depth knowledge of the area and wine growing and tasting explained by Caleb our Driver was First Class. If you are planning a Wine Tour this is the one to book. I see they also do Boat and even Helicopter Tours once the Season gets into full swing.Certainly a one stop Tour Company in the Okanagan.

"You have got to do this"

Yesterday we went on an excellent wine tour, I have visited a number of wineries previously on my own but missed out on a huge part of the experience as Caleb (our driver) explained the history and early beginnings of the wineries.  We visited smaller organic to some of the larger in the area and even hot one with a petting zoo.  The views of the mountains & lake were fabulous and we were able to stop to take some pictures. Caleb's knowledge of Kelowna and area was amazing and he told us things that none of us locals were aware of.  It was a great trip and enjoyed by everyone.  It is a must do for all locals and tourists.  Great job to all at Vines & Views.

"Great Wine Tour"

A glorious day in the valley and Vines and Views did a great job of this tour.  I would highly recommend this company as they are very professional and knowledgeable of many features of the wine industry in the Okanagan.



August 30, 2016 via TripAdvisor “What an awesome time!”

Our friend booked this (party for six) and the bus picked us up from our resort at 10:45am (we returned back at 5:45pm so plan a full day!). Caleb was our driver and not only was he SUPER friendly, he was EXTREMELY informative and made great recommendations on wine (especially what was available in local liquor stores or not). We stopped at four wineries. We then drove down to the docks and hopped on a boat with 'Nice-To-Look-At-Nick' for a stroll down the lake for a nice dip. It was really refreshing after a long day of wine tasting. Life vests were provided for us non-strong swimmers that wanted to jump in but didn't trust our alcoholic instincts. The water was fantastic! Nick was a great host as well. Highly recommended!


August 24, 2016 via TripAdvisor “What a wonderful experience from beginning to end.” When I first called to book a wine tour for 3 friends and I, I was immediately impressed by the effort made to accommodate us and our specific requests. We made the plan together and it was exactly what we wanted. Danny, our driver and guide was so friendly, funny and knowledgeable. He never rushed us or showed any frustration whatsoever when we girls got a little off track at times. It was very valuable to us to have Danny as our guide as he was able to speak to the people at the wineries and make sure we were taken care of especially when a few places became very busy with larger tours. ...

My friend and I used "Vines & Views Wine Tour" this weekend and we couldn't be more pleased. Our tour guide, Danny, was very pleasant and personable. He picked us up from the resort we stayed at and chatted with us as we picked up the other groups. Each stop was unique and lovely, and they even fulfilled a client's request to make one of the stops at "Quails Gate" (the most gorgeous place of the stops we made). If you are looking for lovely, unforgettable views and delightful wine, I highly recommend using Vines & Views Tours.


August 3, 2016 via TripAdvisor “Best wine tour ever! ”

I may be slightly biased on our wine tour experience based on me getting engaged during it. BUT, besides that we had an absolute blast. Our tour guide was Bart (who was absolutely amazing, very personal experience and a lot of fun). We were with another trio, all 5 of us in our 20s. Started at rollingdale winery which was excellent experience. We tried 7 wines (all yummy) and ice wines (my favourite). Next went to quails gate which was previously one of my favourite wines to drink (by far my least favourite winery it was way too busy). Then since we were ahead of schedule Bart offered to take us by Mission Hill to see the famous views and potentially wine taste also. He ended up having to run back to a previous winery because the group we were with left something behind (very kind of him to allow us to wander while he drove around). He taught us about the different wineries, and helped us pick out some of his favourites. He may have spilled the beans about my fiancé and my surprise helicopter ride (where he proposed on a mountain) but didn't ruin the surprise about the engagement at all! He left behind for us champagne and glasses for when we returned, very secretively, and took the others to other wineries while we got engaged! After that he gave us a few options on other wineries to visit (all smaller and more intimate) and mentioned some he would avoid! We went to 3 others after our engagement occurred, he did provide water and snacks if needed. Gave us chocolate to try with certain wines also. Bart made that experience exceptional. Thankfully the group we were with was as easy going as us and let him take the ropes to a few smaller wineries that he recommended and it was very worth it! We had an absolute blast!! I had a great time! Thank you thank you thank you Bart. You made it an amazing day for us. Very personable and an all around great guy. I would recommend requesting him to anyone!


July 26, 2016 via TripAdvisor “West kelowna tour!”

Had an absolutely amazing time with our driver Bart! He was so great and informative, timed our visits at each winery perfect and even helped out a happy couple become engaged with a bit of a detour ! Would recommend to anyone!


July 26, 2016 via TripAdvisor “Awesome time!” We went on a tour with Danny, our tour guide, to some delicious wineries. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, took care of us and our belongings, and even gave us munchies when we took a little lunch break.

I will do a wine tour again, thanks to Danny's wonderful hospitality, my first wine tour experience was awesome!


    July 18, 2016 via TripAdvisor“Big D delivers an AWESOME wine tour experience!”  We did the Naramata Tour this past weekend for a friend's bachelorette party, and Darrell was hands down, amazing. He was fun, courteous, and made our trip one for the books. He had snacks and water and helped carry our bottles of wine from the tasting to the van. He kept our many bottles organized, drove back to pick up one of our friends that was running late from Vancouver, and generally went above and beyond for our group. Any future bachelorette parties I plan in Penticton or Kelowna I will most definitely hire this company again. We love you, Big D!!!

    July 12, 2016 via TripAdvisor “Best Wine and Boat Tour!”

    We booked vines and views for a bachelorette party without knowing anything about the company. They were absolutely fantastic. Kristin in their office helped plan the right tour and responded quickly to subsequent emails. Danny our driver was hilarious and was incredibly knowledgable and helpful. He'll even keep track of who buys what wine for you! Nick the boat driver is great as well. I would highly recommend this tour for any group.


July 5, 2016 via TripAdvisor “AMAZING TIME- BACHELORETTE!”

My friends planned my BACHELORETTE in Kelowna and we booked our wine tour through Vines & Views. From the moment Darrell picked us up at our resort we had such a fun time. He had a nice little wine glass for me (The bride), and a boom box with a cord for our phone so we could play music. He was super courteous and helpful. He even walked us to the restrooms at each winery if we needed to go to the washroom, and took photo after photo for us as well. We even made a pitstop to get some food because some of us were hungry. We had such an amazing time & I would like to recommend this wine tour to everyone! It made my trip and it wouldn't be the same without Darrell!! SO MUCH FUN & amazing views on our West Kelowna Tour!!


July 2, 2016 via TripAdvisor “Worth the money!”  Absolutely loved this tour, our tour guide Kyla was so sweet and accommodating, learned so much and got to try so many smaller vineyards. We were late meeting the bus and she was so sweet and understanding. Such a great experience

June 27, 2016 via TripAdvisor  “Fabulous”
Dan was absolutely amazing!  We had a fabulous time and he was so knowledgeable about the wineries!  I would definitely recommend him for any tour you go on!


Lynn said on June 4, 2016

Hi Just wanted to tell you what an amazing time we had on June 4th.   Our driver Danny was absolutely wonderful and I would highly recommend both.

We were impressed with how he always there when we needed him.  He carried all the wine we bought – shared his knowledge of the wineries and the area – overall very impressed with him. He certainly made us feel relaxed and we had a wonderful day. Again many thanks for making my 60th birthday celebration such an outstanding experience.


Kirsten said on June 30, 2015 via TripAdvisor  “A wonderful day!”  My four closest friends and I drove to Kelowna from Kamloops, BC, to spend a day wine touring through the Kelowna area for my bachelorette. We couldn't have been more pleased! Our tour guide was Allen, who was extremely laid-back, flexible and entertaining. He was very knowledgeable about different wines and growing conditions, as well as about the area, and when he learned that we had no plans that evening he even persuaded a couple of extra wineries to squeeze us in before we headed home!
Our day was interesting and a definite blast, we couldn't have asked for better. I learned quite a bit about the amazing wine region that is right outside my door, and it has opened my curiosity to learning even more and exploring the region additionally. And for the service, the price, and the overall experience, it will be with Allen and with Vines and Views again. Thank you for the fabulous day!

June 30, 2015 via TripAdvisor  “Great Choice for a Stagette”  We had a blast with our tour guide, Allen. As a rowdy bunch of stagette ladies looking for a good time, he was a great balance of "stick to the schedule!" and "party! Party! PARTY!" The tour itself (Vines, Brews & Spirits) was competitively priced and well balanced if you're not that into wine alone and looking to please a crowd. If forced to offer a critique, I would say the van got a little too toasty in the hot okanagan sun, but all was forgiven with a tasty bev!

Sol Sista's said on June 22, 2015  Every year we do a Sole Sista's Mystery Trip and this year we were taken to Kelowna, BC!! We had a Fab 5 winery tour with Allen and it could not have been BETTER! Allen was so much fun, joined in our fun and knew so much about the area! We would recommend him and this tour whole heartily! Each winery had something to offer and the people were fantastic! The lunch from Basket Case Picnics was delicious!! If you have a chance, go and be sure to request Allen!! We "thouroughly" enjoyed ourselves! Thank you so much!! The Sole Sista's

Krista said on June 16, 2015 via TripAdvisor  “The Host with the most! Awesome experience and service!”  Our company recently had a local meeting where we did the West Kelowna wine tour. Our tour guide, Allen, was amazing right from the start. He promptly picked us up from our hotel and immediately capture our attention with his friendly and funny personality. He was quite knowledgable about the places we were going and took the time to really ensure we were all enjoying ourselves. We also had requested we wind up at a nice winery for dinner and this company booked our reservations for us. Further to that, Allen and his kind and generous personality, collected all of our wine purchases and even delivered them to our hotel so we didn't need to worry about them over dinner! This experience was amazing and I would highly recommend the company but also Allen as the best guide EVER! Thanks so much!

Lindsay said on June 15, 2015  Jeannie and I went on our first tour of the Okanagan with Vines and Views with Allen as our guide and had a fantastic time! Allen was very knowledgable and friendly and the wineries were amazing. Would definitely recommend this tour to friends and family!

June 13, 2015 via TripAdvisor  “Exceptional service” We recently went on a wine tour of five winery's in Summerland. We called last minute and they organized a tour the next day for my fiancé and I. They even came to our campground to pick us up. Our tour guide was Lou who was very professional and accomodating. She and the whole company went above and beyond to make our day fabulous. They knew which winerys to visit. I highly recommend them. 
 
Anna said on June 13, 2015
Sharon and I had a great time and Allen was fantastic! I would highly recommend him to everyone! And I have.

Navi said on May 26, 2015 via TripAdvisor "Excellent vine tour"  My friend and I went on our first wine tour with Allen as our guide. We really enjoyed visiting different wineries around Kelowna and learning about the wines. Allen was very accommodating and humorous. He was great to chat with. We loved our snacks that were provided! Had an awesome time!!

Kathleen said on May 25, 2015 via TripAdvisor "Search no further for a tour company"  We were on a long road trip without an agenda as to when we might arrive at any given destination and no pre set number of days at our location. That being said, we decided with the overwhelming number of wineries there were to visit, we might be better off joining a tour. It was looking like we should have made reservations ahead, but when we called Vines & Views, Kristen didn't blink an eye. She arranged for a tour even though it looked like we might be the only ones on it since we booked so late. We ended up with a private tour at no extra cost and just as importantly, we were blessed with Lou as our guide. Not only did she arrange for a variety of wineries to suit our desires, she gave us a great overview of the area as she drove us to the West side. By the time we reached our first winery, we felt so welcomed and comfortable, it was if we had known her for a lifetime. The winery experiences were perfect, so much so, that we managed to find a bottle or two of wines to bring home from each location.

Kathy said May 25, 2015  We had a lovely time in spite of the rain.  Lou went out of her way to make sure we were well taken care of and we had a varied sampling of what the Okanagan Valley vintners had to offer.  She made us feel so welcome and so comfortable, it was if we had known her a lifetime.  Please feel free to use us as a reference anytime!

Marilyn said May 18, 2015  We had a great afternoon with Kevin  He is a superb guide   I  actually teach people skills and he is top of the line with everyone he deals with so if there is a great role or raise or any bonus etc he should definitely get it.
Will recommend your tour company to people we meet.

Mike said November 6, 2014 via TripAdvisor “Excellent Service”

We were a group of 10, and we had a fun, relaxed time on the Vines & Views tour of Lake Country. Our guide Kevin was very attentive and the vehicle was immaculate. The wineries were very accommodating, and we were well-cared for from start to finish. Will definitely work with them again on the next tour I take my clients.


George said on September 8, 2014 4:12 PM  We had an fantastic time on our wine tour with Vines & Views. Our driver was punctual, friendly and knowledgeable. The wineries were all accommodating to our group as we had 14 people.  Everything was very well organised and we were very happy with the excellent service we received.


Anne said on August 14, 2014 9:58 PM  We celebrated my birthday with a wine tour this year.  My friends and family and I had the best time.  We had special treatment at each winery and the company was very well organised.  We were picked up on time and the driver was tons of fun.  We all would recommend this company to anyone wanting to take a wine tour.


Stanley & Ginger said on August 10, 2014 8:23 AM  We took a wine tour yesterday with Vines & Views.  The driver was so friendly and accommodating.  We learned a lot about wine and the Okanagan Valley, it was a great way to spend the afternoon.

Sarah said on August 9, 2014 4:55 PM
I recommend Vines & Views for Stagettes.  It's a great way to have fun with your friends, and you don't have to worry about driving.  Our driver catered to our every need, taking pictures, carrying wine and I think even a purse or two at times:)

Tina said on August 7, 2014 7:56 PM  We did a Stagette wine tour with Vines & Views.  It was so much fun, we are planning another one for next year when my sister gets married.  It's great because the tours were planned by area, so we will just do another area of the Okanagan next year.

Shelley said on July 27, 2014 via TripAdvisor  “Wonderful Wine Tour”

July 23, 2014, four of us booked a Lakeshore tour with Vines and Views in Kelowna. We were the only 4 on the tour in a new vehicle which was great. The guide, Jeannie, was such fun. We learned a lot about the history and current status of Kelowna. We were entertained and really appreciated the energy brought to the tour. The tour itself has breathtaking views of the valley and the lake. In addition, we tasted some lovely wine. The tour definitely met our expectations. With many different tours available, this company is definitely one to investigate.


EeMors said on July 20, 2014 via TripAdvisor “Classy Fun Wine-touring Stagette”      I organized a group of 8 girls to go on the Summerland Bottleneck Winery Tour with a private van on a wine tasting tour through Vines & Views.  Kristin, our organizational contact, was professional, friendly, and efficient. had experienced Bottleneck Drive with a couple friends driving ourselves around in the past, and that experience paled in comparison to your tour. Kevin was an excellent driver - he ensured we never had to crowd up against a counter anywhere, we had incredible tastings offered to us (I had more samples through this tour than I experienced doing it on my own), and he took outstanding photographs. All the girls agreed: the event was the highlight our of 4 day stagette in Penticton.


George said on July 23, 2014 6:48 PM  We have been on many wine tours, and this was by far our best experience.  Booking was simple and the website was easy to navigate.  The driver knew so much about wine, and even had a couple good jokes.  He helped us carry our many purchases to the vehicle.  We also liked going into the cellars at Mission Hill.  It was a great experience.


Michelle said on July 18, 2014 2:19 PM  We did a wine tour with Vines & Views for my Stagette.  They were accommodating from the time we booked to the time we were dropped off.  They planned the day for us, even making us lunch reservations.  It was such a special day, one that my friends and I will always remember.

Christy said on July 2, 2014 10:07 PM  We really enjoyed our experience with Vines & Views Wine Tours. They picked us up at our hotel and it was so nice not to worry about driving while we sipped wine.  The weather was warm, so we also appreciated the A/C in the vehicle.  Our driver was fun and friendly and we would recommend this company.

Cindy said on June 21, 2014 6:12 AM  We would like to give Vines & Views an excellent review.  This was our first wine tour and they exceeded our expectations.  We had a group of four and we toured with another four people, it was a fun way to meet new people.  The driver did a great job of making sure everyone had a great time.  The whole group we were with would highly recommend this company for a wine tour!

Jessica said on June 8, 2014 10:33 AM  My girlfriends threw me a Stagette Party last weekend with Vines & Views Wine Tours.  We visited The West Kelowna wineries, which were amazing.  Everything was planned perfectly for us and our driver went the extra mile, taking pictures and making jokes.  He made our day so much fun.

Stephen said on June 4, 2014 6:30 PM  My wife and I took a wine tour today with Vines & Views.  Our driver was very friendly and knowledgeable.  We learned so much about Okanagan wine and the wineries.  The scenery was beautiful and our friendly driver took pictures of us everywhere we went, which was much appreciated.  They really went above and beyond to make our experience special.

Michelle said on May 28, 2014 7:50 PM
We booked with Vines & Views for my Stagette. From the start they were very accommodating, making sure everything was planed special for our group. We were impressed that they were able to accommodate our group of 14 in one vehicle. Our driver was very friendly and took tons of pictures for us, he really made the day fun. They also gave me a wine glass for tasting, that was a nice touch. Such a great experience for my Stagette.

Michelle said May 26, 2014 via TripAdvisor  “Amazing Experience!”

I just recently booked a trip with vine and views wine tours. The experience from booking the tour till the very end was incredible. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. This was the first wine tour I have been on. I learned so much and tasted some fantastical wine. I would definitely recommend this company!


John said on May 27, 2014 9:04 PM
Touring with Vines & Views Wine Tours was wonderful. We visited all the wineries we requested and they also included a winery tour. The driver was fun and informative, the wine samples were even better.

Jan said on Dec 5, 2013 12:00 PM  A group of 10 of us took a tour with Vines & Views in November. It was great that they were able to accommodate all of us with room to spare in the vehicle and on such short notice. Everything was very organised from on time pick up to special tastings at the wineries. Everyone had a great time and we would all recommend this company for a group tour.

Donna said on October 17, 2013 via TripAdvisor  “Beautiful Fun Filled Day”

A friend and myself booked the Lake Country Swirl, Sip & Savour Wine Tour for Oct 1st (2013). Roger was our guide and he picked us up at our hotel in Kelowna and then drove the back roads to the Lake Country for the scenery. It was beautiful sunny day and the fall leaves were spectacular; great start!!
Our first stop was Arrow Leaf, then off to Ex Nihilo just to get us back in time to Gray Monk for a tour of their Winery: where they store and age their wine, crushing their Pinot Gris grapes & how they make their wine. Then went back up to their wine tasting room and enjoyed tasting 5 of their wines. Roger drove us to a few more wineries, the last one being Ancient Hill Estate Winery. This was another memorable stop, beautiful location & beautiful wine shop & tasting room. We just happen to be the only people there at that time and the owner walked in. The owner was so kind & down to earth & told the history of his property & winery, and then he even showed us their wine bottling facility. A great way to end our tour.
Roger was fun, friendly and patient and not to mention how he carried out our many bottles of wine or shall I say cases of wine. When I am back in the Kelowna I am definitely going to book another tour with Vines & Views Wine Tours.


Ian & Frances said on Oct 7, 2013 7:40 AM  We had an awesome time, the views and the tastings were very enjoyable. Kevin the driver was helpful and friendly, I would highly recommend Vines and Views.

Sandra said on Sep 17, 2013 1:00 PM  My sisters and I came to Kelowna to experience the wineries. We are so glad we chose Vines & Views to take us out on the tour. The van was spacious and comfortable and our driver was fun and knew the business well. It was very nice that they were able to pick us up right where we were staying, that way we could enjoy all the wine we wanted.

The Kumars said on Sep 15, 2013 4:32 PM  My wife and I took a 2 day wine tour with Vines and Views and we had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Our tour guide whose name was Kevin was very knowledgeable and friendly. We recommend this tour to anyone who is new to the area and you would be surprised as to how much information you gather from 2 days of wine tasting!!

Jenny said on Aug 28, 2013 11:26 AM  Vines & Views Wine Tours was an absolute blast. We enjoyed seeing the different wineries and tasting the amazing wines they offered. Our driver Kevin was not only extremely kind and accommodating, he was also "a professional photographer" and helped document my stagette. Thank you for such an amazing experience.

David said on Jul 21, 2013 1:28 PM  My wife and I loved the wineries. It was a great tour and it was nice that all the winery fees were included. We enjoyed visiting Mission Hill and the smaller, family run wineries were great too. Next time we are here, we would like to visit another area of wineries. We definitely recommend Vines & Views Wine Tours.

Alana said on Jul 20, 2013 3:45 PM  Fantastic wine, fantastic driver, day and experience. Thanks Vines & Views.

Leagh said on July 15, 2014 via TripAdvisor  “The Only Way to Go”
We planned a tour with Vines and Views wine tours and had a fabulous time. A group of us went out and did the north Okangan region. It was amazing and our guide was excellent. She took us to several wineries and we ended up having lunch at Gray Monk Winery. From the pick up at the hotel to the return drop off we had an amazing time and plan on doing this again next year. It was worry free so we could just relax and enjoy the tour. I would highly recommend this company as they go the extra mile to make the experience special It was a fun and entertaining day and we learned so much about the valley and its wine history.

Patricia said on Jul 4, 2013 1:50 PM  Vines & Views Wine Tours was extremely accommodating from the time we booked to the time we were finished the tour. The wineries were so beautiful, and our driver made our day so much fun. We will be back for another tour next year.

Jim said on Jun 20, 2013 2:52 PM  Our tour West Kelowna Gallery Of Grapes Tour was wonderful. The views were incredible, wineries were amazing. The people were so friendly and knowledgeable. We had a great time and learned lots about wine tasting and the Okanagan Valley.
