How many wineries do we go to?
Typically, on the half day tour, the average number of wineries is 4 – 5. The full day is an average of 7 wineries.
Which wineries will we visit?
We do not have a set itinerary or route and your guide will make suggestions based on your preferences. Because many wineries prefer our guides to call ahead, if you have specific wineries in mind that you wish to visit, it is best to let our office know ahead of time so we can do our best to work them in.
Can we pick the wineries?
If you have specific wineries you wish to visit – or not visit – please let our office know at the time of booking. Our guides make appointments with the wineries ahead of time and need to know this information. Also keep in mind that our guides know the area and wineries very well and may have suggestions and insights into wineries you may enjoy based on your likes and dislikes.
Can we buy wine at the wineries we visit?
Yes! In fact, it’s strongly encouraged. Many of the wineries we visit are smaller wineries whose products may not be available in the LCBO.
Do we need to book ahead?
Yes, all of our tours are by reservation only.
What if we need to cancel?
We require a minimum of 48 hours notice for all cancellations or changes to the number of people otherwise a 50% deposit will be charged.
Is it okay to give our guide a tip?
It’s all about the experience and our guides do their best to ensure you have a great time on your tour. Gratuities are most appreciated.
Should I leave a review?
Yes please do leave a review of your tour and guide on TripAdvisor. We value your feedback and it is helpful to other people when considering which wine tour company to book a tour with.
