This was our first time with Experience Wine Tours and our first time in Kelowna. We went on the Naramata Bench wine tour and it was an absolutely amazing experience. Matt was an exceptional tour guide and extremely knowledgeable. He made everyone feel very comfortable throughout the tour and ensured everyone was enjoying themselves. The selection of wineries we visited were great and he had planned a fantastic day. I proposed during the wine tour and Matt/Shannon helped me plan everything out and went the extra mile to make this day so memorable. Leading up to the tour, both Shannon and Matt were helping me with ideas and advice on places to propose in Kelowna. They recommended a particular stop on the wine tour and Matt helped arrange a very romantic, private and special moment for us. After I proposed, he had arranged a beautiful picnic lunch and champagne to celebrate. It was an absolutely wonderful experience and truly was a day that we will never forget. Thank you Matt and Shannon for everything!!

We went on a wine tour with Experience in May and when we were greeted at our accommodations by Matt we were informed we were the only 2 on the tour that day - so we had a private wine guide for the day! Matt was awesome from the beginning - relaxed, informative and was pretty much happy for us to dictate our day! We went to some wonderful wineries and he gave us his personal recommendations on a couple of wines and everyone knew his name and were happy to see him (obviously a good sign for a wine tour!). As it was just the 2 of us he was cool with allowing us to push back our lunch time and we ended up having and amazing picnic-style lunch at Summerhill with lots of amazing locally produced cheeses and veggies, we surprised Matt by being able to eat it all! We had a wonderful day and wouldn't hesitate to recommend experience wine tours in an instant.. Thanks again :)

This was the second time our group hired Matt (Experience Wine Tours), as we were so delighted with the experience the first time around. They are extremely accommodating and will gladly change plans throughout the day if there are some wineries you'd like to "fit in" or switch around the route, etc. Matt was extremely entertaining and so knowledgeable about everything and looked like he had great connections with the wineries. Don't have a bad thing to say about his company! Fabulous!

My wife and I went on a wine tour in Kelowna with Experience Wine Tours. Matt was our guide and he was fantastic. Everything ran like clock work and we visited 5 wineries in both West and East Kelowna. Matt clearly is very knowledgeable of the wineries and is well known by the winery staff which ensured we got to try lots of wines. The picnic lunch was spectacular, filled with local products. Overall excellent!

Matt was awesome. Everything was on time, as promised, and even better. He was flexible professional and knowledgeable. We even got to finish off the tour with a stop at a brewery, which was awesome.

10/10. Cheers.
