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 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.
It was a lovely sunny day and a great day out, Chuck was a great driver and new his stuff. The meal was about half way round the trip and the setting, location and food was excellent, the wine wasn't bad either.
It was great! The tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable. Would definitely book with them again.
Very , Very happy with Charles he made us feel at ease from the start and his knowledge of the sites he took us was great. We would use Viator again.
Chuck the driver was great! so was the limo fleet, and treated like a queen!Tour stop was great, nice people, great wine, lunch was superb, and I have eaten in many great restaurants. Chuck had a wealth of knowledge and a great host
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!
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.
The day was enjoyable. It could be improved by a guide who was more familiar with the wine region.
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.
