We really enjoyed this tour. We were picked up at our B and B and driven to each vineyard, to dinner and then back to our B and B. This is the way to go as the wine tastings are generous so no worries about having to designate a driver which allowed everyone to participate. We would recommend this tour to our friends.

The tour and the guide was great, but they advertise : Main Course, choice of: Marrakech salmon baked Atlantic salmon with Moroccan spice and beet gaufrette, wilted rocket and pesto-smashed potato Maple Dijon- glazed chicken mascarpone- and pecan-stuffed chicken with pesto pomme puree and haricots verts Slow-roasted prime rib with horseradish jus and garlic and chive Yorkshire pudding nad you don't get. I ask the tour guide Ron about this and he did not know how or why we did not get this for the dinner. The food we did get was unsat for the price we paid.

The first winery was great. Learned a lot, enjoyed the tasting, etc. The 2nd winery was a worthless stop. The third winery was good. The dinner was just so-so - mediocre at best. This tour is definitely not worth the money spent. The bus is a van with 3 rows of seats. I was in the 2nd row behind the driver / tour guide and I had difficulty hearing him when he talked. When I booked the tour via phone, I understood the agent to say that we would have some time in Niagara-on-the-Lake however, that was not the case. If you are wanting some free time in Niagara-on-the-Lake, this is not a tour that will provide that.

Excellent tour, we learned a lot about wine, tasted some nice wine and had a nice lunch. What made the trip was the the Tour guide Dave, he was very knowledgeable but most importantly had the right approach to hosting the tour and getting people to to enjoy the experience.

If you go, ask for Dave from Grape Escape.
