The wine tour was superb. We learned a lot about the Annapolis valley wine industry, did a lot of tasting and had a great lunch. The tour guide and staff at the wineries were very knowledgable. The small group format worked well for us.

One of the reasons we enjoy traveling is the opportunity to meet new people and experience things that are part of others daily lives, if even for a moment. The day we had with Lila as our guide and the folks on this tour is a highlight in our travel memories. The small group aspect made it far more intimate in the exploration of a few of the 'off the beaten trail' places we were hoping for. Our expectations were exceeded! Lila is extremely knowledgeable on the history of the region as well as the offerings of the stops we made. The country-side is beautiful, the people were very friendly and accommodating, and the history is fascinating. The wines and foods we had the pleasure of trying were very well done. The wine region is very unique and they have made it their own. We highly recommend this for anyone for the all the reasons mentioned and the numerous other reasons time and space would limit. I cannot describe it in a way to do justice. Thank you Lila and the great people we met along the way!

This was a wonderful and very informative tour. Everything was well organized and coordinated with the three wineries, lunch, herb farm, and cheese factory. Our tour guide provided so much information about Nova Scotia's wine industry, its history, and its goals for the future. She was a great driver and a great hostess for the day. Several days later, we returned to one of the wineries for lunch because we felt it was the best meal we had had all week. I brought several bottles of wine back to the USA and will enjoy reliving the experience with others -- and encouraging them to go to NS. I know she did not plan the weather, but that was perfect too! Thank you for a wonderful tour, Leila hope I spelled your name correctly.
