They might even introduce you to a winemaker and give you an exclusive behind-the-scenes glimpse into the captivating world of winemaking. So fasten your seatbelt, my friend, because we are about to take you on a wine adventure like no other!
Can one person join your tours?
Oh, you bet they can! To make bookings for one person, kindly reach out to our office, and we’ll be happy to assist you. But here’s the deal: the tour selection might be a tad limited, based on which Public Tours are running that day. You’ll need to give our office a call to make those bookings. So, don’t wait too long, my friend. Reach out to us and let’s make some magical memories together!
We have a friend/family member that wants to join, but doesn’t drink, can they join in on the fun?
Whether you choose a private tour or a public tour, we ensure that your friends and family are welcome to join with a discounted rate. So gather your crew, because together we’ll embark on a grape-tastic adventure, filled with good times and great wine. Cheers to unforgettable memories and unforgettable wines!
Can we set our own itinerary or tour times?
At Discover Okanagan Tours, our public tours are meticulously planned, like a well-choreographed dance, with precise times and carefully curated itineraries. But fret not, because we have carefully selected the most extraordinary wineries just for you! We are dedicated to providing you with the ultimate experience, so we only visit the crème de la crème based on the glowing feedback from our guests. Now, if you’re looking for exclusivity and opt for a private tour, we might just be able to work our magic and tailor the itinerary to your winery preferences. However, please note that there may be an additional cost involved. Let’s create an unforgettable wine-tasting experience that will be etched in your memory forever!
Can we drink alcohol in your vans/shuttles?
We’ve got some rules to keep the good times rolling! While we can’t pop open the bubbles in our vans/shuttles (bummer, we know), it’s all for a good reason. We don’t want to risk losing our transportation license and to keep the tours going! So, let’s stay on the right side of the law and save the sipping for the amazing wineries we’ll be visiting, where the good times and delicious drinks are waiting for you!
