I run a bachelor/bachelorette party planning service and I send all of my clients to Bill because I know he will take great care of them. He goes out of his way to make sure they are having a good time and all of their needs are met. I also rely on his advice when I'm unsure of what a good itinerary would be for my customers and he never disappoints! Thanks Bill, for taking care of my clients and helping my business maintain a high standard of service!

We booked a last minute trip for a 3 pm tour on short notice and had a amazing time.
We went to 4 wines and couple stops we requested along the way.Sharon had our taste figured out after the first stop. She was extremely knowledgeable about each winery and pairing. She guided us along the tour and made us feel extremely comfortable. Sharon went above and beyond to make it an experience we would never forget! Despite other events that evening going on in Kelowna, Sharon adapted excellent to the detours and traffic. I would recommend this tour to anyone. They where both very professional and courteous. I will definitely be going again! Thank you Bill and Sharon

Amazing afternoon and dinner

On two days notice Bill put together a wonderful tour for us . Bill was a wonderful host who chose the right vineyards for our taste in wine and an amazing vineyard for the dinner at the end of the tour.  He was extremely educative but in a none serious or preachy way. We really couldn't praise him more highly.

A group of 6 of us drove down to Kelowna May long weekend. This was our first wine tour in BC. Bill was great and made sure all the details were taken care of. Our tour guide Kris was an excellent host, very friendly and knowledgeable regarding the history of the wineries. We saw some breathtaking views and had so much fun! Bill went out of his way to make my birthday extra special. The dinner we had a Summerhill winery had an amazing view of the Okanagan. I highly recommend!
