We felt like long time friends from the moment we got into the SUV. No request was too big and she never hesitated to take you on a scenic tour on your way to the wineries. Her knowledge was huge and her personality even bigger. Extremely inexpensive for the tour you get. I have taken this tour a couple of... More

We rode in style with Karen. She was extremely knowledge and hospitable. Karen planned our whole day to perfection. She had water and snacks for us and to enjoy. She pointed out all kinds of local gem's and ensured we didn't pay any tasting fees.

Karen picked us up at our accommodations and we had an amazing afternoon touring wineries in the area. Karen is very knowledgeable about the area and the wineries. Karen catered the tour to our wine tastes and we enjoyed all... More

I planned a Beer Buddies tour for my boyfriend and it exceeded our expectations. Ron and Karen are both amazing people and have a lot of fun doing what they do. We appreciate them taking us on our tour and teaching us so much about each brewery. We felt so comfortable being around Ron and really enjoyed his company though... More

My sister and I went out on tour with Karen and one other guest. We had such great time, the goal was to try to hit as many wineries as possible and fill in our passport. We hit 5 in total and had an amazing lunch at Burrowing Owl. Karen is extremely knowledgeable about the wineries in the region as... More

Ron arrived early to collect us from our Airbnb in Penticton, he took us to 5 wineries and lunch at Vanilla Pod. My girlfriend and I aren't wine experts by any means so what we were able to learn from Ron and the wineries was definitely appreciated. He had water and pretzels on hand which definitely came in handy!

You have to take a tour with Karen and/or Ron of Grape Friends! My husband and I have been on three tours with them and each one is better than the last! They have taken us to places we might never have found. They introduce us to the wine makers, the winery owners, the creamery cheese makers. We go home... More
