What You Can Expect
After being picked up at your hotel or meeting downtown, 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 guide will return to the wineries after the tour to pick up your wine purchases and deliver them to your hotel.
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 you’ll 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-Lake’s largest wineries, where you’ll have a full vineyard tour and a wine tasting. Next, cycle to the beautiful Kurtz Orchard 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.
My wife and I had a wonderful time on this bike tour. The guide was very friendly, easy going and informative. We went to four winerys, who were also very friendly. Very happy with the experience.
I have to say though it may have been better to rent a bike a do it alone with the wife. Still would have enjoyed it and saved some money.
Oh and they had helmets and good bikes. Overall very happy with the experience.
What a fun way to spend a day at Niagara on The Lakes! We thoroughly enjoyed the wineries, the wine and the good company. The owners and staff of Grape Escape Wine Tours are awesome and they go above and beyond for their customers. You can buy as much wine as you want at all the different wineries and they will have it ready for you to take with you at the end of your bike tour. Thanks from Texas for an exceptional wine tour! Loved it!!!
