Grape Friends Lounge and Tours

I just wanted to say that Karen you are absolutely wonderful; you completely made our experience on Friday. Not only did you take us to 10 different wineries, but you where able to teach us about the different wines and vineyards. I thought that it was incredible by the 3rd winery you knew all of our tastes. I felt that being apart of your tour gave us an experience that was more personal due to your relationship with many of the wineries. I will for sure be telling EVERYONE about what amazing company you two have.

Thank you again for making my Birthday one of the Most Magical I have ever had!!

“Here is what I really liked about your tour: You were super friendly you really educated us about wine and wine tasting, i wasn’t expecting that at all, and I loved it. All the people at the wine tasting rooms loved you guys! They were much friendlier when we came in with you versus when we went in alone. Also, they poured a lot more wine. :o) The wineries you selected were excellent, far better than the ones we went to on our own. Also, I really appreciated the way that you paid attention to what we liked and didn’t like, and make recommendations further down the line accordingly. I could tell that you both really cared about how our day went, and we really appreciated that!”

“Hi Karen, Thanks again for the great Grape Buddy Tour. It was awesome. We have already recommended you to ours friends and family. We will no doubt be in touch for another tour in the future.”

“Our tour with Grape Friends was the highlight of our trip. Karen went above and beyond a regular tour. Not only was she fun and easy to talk to, but she was very knowledgeable of the vineyards and the area. We will definitely be giving Grape Friends a call next time we are in the area!”

“As a travel agent, I’m always critiquing tours that I take. I highly recommend others to consider taking a trip with Grape Friends Tours. It can be custom made, or preplanned or a combination of both. They take into consideration the clients wants, abilities and wine preferences. The vehicle was comfortable, with easy access for those with disabilities and can take a fold up wheelchair! Karen was knowledgeable, affable, and shared information you wouldn’t normally get out of a guide book. I can’t wait to return for another tour!””…I liked the idea of a more private tour. Grape Friends designed a tour based on the wine I wanted to try, the area I wanted to visit, and my schedule. The price was the same as a group tour and we visited smaller wineries, toured the brewing rooms, picked Karen’s brain about all things wine, stopped for lunch where we wanted, and did it all at a leisurely pace. It was fantastic, much better than the group tour I did in the area 3 years ago. I will definitely call them again when I want to explore the Osoyoos/Oliver wine region. I recommend the tour for locals and visitors alike.”
