Owner description: A wine tour designed with you in mind!
Reviewed 16 October 2013

A group of 9 women booked a tour 4 months in advance with this operator. We arranged numbers and pick up times and made dinner reservations based on this. 5 days before the tour we learn that they have double booked, putting another group in the van with us, who want to go to different winerys than we did and informed us that our time has changed with a 2 hour later pick up time. We obviously stated that this was unacceptable, that we booked well in advance and did not want to be lumped in with 5 people we didn't know. The owner did not see the issue, was very rude and totally unprofessional. Won't be referring anyone we know - that is for sure!

First of all unless requested for an extra fee the tours are not completely "private" For the group that had booked they wanted the tour discounted and didn't want to share the tour, I have a 14 passenger van and my business is doing wine tours, As for the wineries, my other group was totally open to suggestions. IF you want to cheap out then expect to get what you pay for, there are services available for you. I have offered a great Full Service wine tour at the same price since I started and I stand by that and have some very amazing guest.

Natasha toured six of us through six wineries in the Oliver/Osoyoos region. What an awesome day. Despite being very familiar with the region she took us to boutique wineries that we never would have gone to. They were all fantastic.

She arrived right on time, looked after sorting and loading all of our purchases and provided insight to the region and the wineries that we visited. A first class day. We will definitely give her a call for our next trip.

My boyfriend and I booked this wine tour after reading reviews online. Natasha's reviews were excellent and she definitely lived up to them! We described ourselves as "not wine drinkers" and told her we just there to have fun. Not only did we have a blast, but Natasha personalized the tour for us, picking wineries with sweeter wines for us beginners. We managed to leave the tour with two cases of wine and a good buzz. We will definitely do a wine tour gone south again!

Despite being an avid wine fan, and not too far away, this was my first trip to Osoyoos for a wine week away. We had a great time! Four of us took a full day tour. We were picked up at 10am and didn't get home until 7pm, it was a full day of wine. We hit 8 wineries with lunch in between. Natasha was able to show us some amazing boutique/unique wineries that we may never have given a chance. The tour itself was great as we were able to get to know people and we didn't have to drive. A few of the stops rushed the tastings a bit, but all were incredibly generous in their pours and willingness to let us taste everything. This is a great way to see the vineyards in a safe way and informational way. Great service, would do it again!

We really enjoyed our 1/2 day tour with Natasha. She arrived promptly at 10 and every place we visited had a unique quality and personality! We especially liked that many of the wineries we visited had the winemakers/owners present. Natasha also provided knowledgeable information about the region/wineries as well. We would highly recommend Natasha and Wine Tours Gone South!
