Not great
Robin_S

After an Amazing OvertheFalls tour the day before, we were ready for a relaxing day visiting some wineries and enjoying a peaceful picnic lunch. To our dismay, we entered our “small group” tour bus to find us combined with a bachelorette party. All the ladies were lovely I am sure they felt restricted with having 6 “parents” join them and our peaceful day was filled with loud rap music. The 4 hour tour was actually more like 7 hours. There was a lot of driving time because winery scheduled reservations were too spread out. Our tour guide, although was a pleasant man, was in no way a tour guide. He was a driver. Too boot, he drove way too fast, way way over the speed limit. We had to ask him to slow down. No tour or information about the area was given at all. The first stop was lovely as well as the last. Hence the 2 stars. More planning needed to improve their tours. Do research for what you want to get out of it.

Above and beyond what we were expecting

Our guide, Dan, was amazing. Along with getting us to our tasting appointments on time, he shared his knowledge of the area, answered our questions and was enjoyable to be with. His personal relationship with some of the wineries made our experience more enjoyable. No words can tell you how much we enjoyed our tour. It was above and beyond what we were expecting.

We had a great time! Chris was a fantastic tour guide. He taught us so much as this was our first wine tasting tour. We had such a blast! Had a great experience booking the tour as well. When I contacted them for information the representative went above and beyond to help me book this tour.

Long and too much travel time.
Dan_M

Rick the driver was amazing. He made the trip fun. Unfortunately, there were too many other issues that overshadowed 1. The bus was an old handicap bus that was clearly bought at auction. The seals in the windows we’re gone, which made it nearly impossible to see outside. 2. The restaurant food was tasty, but they were clearly not prepared to serve the 18 of us at once. The orders were mixed and drinks did not come until the end of the meal. 3. 7 hours for 5 wineries. There are wineries everywhere. We would go to one, spend 30 mins, then travel 30 + minutes to get to the next one. Too much time on the bus. We were in Niagara, and drove to Lincoln/St Catharines. The buzz was gone by the time that we would get to the next winery. Not sure if that was by design or not, but it wasn’t pleasant. 4. The last winery was closed. We were there on schedule, and no go. Driver Rick did an amazing job finding us another place to go, but at one point, we were stopped on a major highway, not knowing where to go next. It was a long day. Fun, but long. Look for a smaller tour.

Good tour... lunch and viator horrible
Tasha_J

The wine tour was a good experience and the tour guide we had was fantastic. We had a party of 11 celebrating my birthday. The disappointing aspect was the lunch and the post tour customer service. We waited 1h and 30mins before leaving to continue the tour with no lunch served. Spent additional money at fast food restaurants. Spent over $2k on the tour and had to go back and forth with Viator for a month to be refunded the lunch we didn't receive. They only refunded us $103.99 and refused any further comp. Absolute nightmare trying to get this resolved as once the payment was received customer service ended.

Chris was a wonderful tour guide! Funny and knowledgeable about wine. The only issue was the lunch location which was terribly slow. some members of the tour had to take their lunch to go and eat on the bus even though our lunch was preordered the day before.

An Educational and Fun Experience in the Niagara Falls Area
Robert_C
, Sep 2021
Chris was there at our hotel at 10:00 sharp to pick us up. I felt this was outstanding since we didn't book until 6 PM the previous day. On the way to the vineyards we found his narrative on the history of wine-making in the area very interesting, as well as his insight into the tastings, of which there were five. We were the only "foreigners" on the tour, but Chris treated us equally well, even being from the "wild" state of Connecticut, lol. The only downside was the wait for our pre-ordered meal, though the food was just fine when we finally ate. All-in-all a wonderful experience, the nine of us on the tour were feeling just fine at the end.

We had a great time on the wine tour! Our bus driver, Adrienne, was awesome - she really went above and beyond to make our day fun! The 5 wineries that we visited were excellent and the lunch was tasty! Our only complaint would be the amount of time driving/on the bus going to each winery- but we knew that when booking. Overall, great tour!

Very dissatisfied
Jackie_C
, Sep 2021
The winery’s were great but everything was sub par. We were told a pick up time of 9:15 we didn’t get picked up until 9:45 I called texted and email to find out what was happening but got no response ever. My other big problem was lunch. It was NOT what was described in the confirmation and the location was horrible we were expected to sit on the side of the highway in eating dirt blown at us by traffic for 2 hours!!! Very dissatisfied!

Wine Not!
Ruth_J

I did this tour in August with my mother and sister. We had a fantastic time visiting Niagara Falls and Niagara on the Lake. Our tour guide and driver Chris was EXCELLENT!!!! He was courteous and funny and very knowledgeable about the wineries we went to and wine in general. He was also very informative about the history of Niagara on the Lake. We got to visit 5 wineries where we sampled many..... many.....many different wines. I also loved that Chris took us to some smaller boutique and family run wineries that we would have never ventured to on our own. The tour also included a stop for lunch. Although lunch was good, the service was very slow and despite pre ordering our meal we did not receive our food until 10 minutes before we had to leave the restaurant and were very rushed to eat (this being the only reason I did not give the tour 5 stars). But like I said, the food was good and this slight hiccup did not over shadow the overall experience of the tour. All in all it was a wonderful tour and I would highly recommend it.

Good tour

Good tour! Our driver was lovely and she was very accommodating and knowledgeable. Perridiso winery was the best we had all day. Very personable and knowledgeable owner. Provided 3-4 wine samples at each stop! Only complaint was the amount of driving all day. Would be much better if the chosen wineries were closer together. Lunch was preordered from a restaurant (88 South) and was great!

First Wine tour Experience
Marcello_C
, Aug 2021
This was our first wine tour that we've been on and the reviews are conflicting. I was skeptical when booking because of the reviews. Driving time- It was a lot of driving and time spent on the bus but if you drove it yourself, it would be about the same. Wineries- There are around 90 different wineries in the area, so if you want a specific one I wouldn't suggest taking this tour as it changes based on availability Group size- It was a small group (6) people. Keep in mind we went on a friday and not a weekend when most people are off. Tour Guide- Jerry, He was very knowledgeable, when we were waiting he shared information about the history of the area. He was kind and tried to get the groups of individuals to mingle and it was essentially fun to be around strangers> If that makes sense. Overall each winery that we went to were good at different things, and each winery was unique in its own way. We did have a few servers that were "new" and it was very basic and generic, but I genuinely thought they tried their best. Down fall: This wine tour is not easy to book if you don't plan to spend the night in Niagara or surrounding areas. You have to pick a pick-up location and so we had to walk from a public parking lot to the hotel- which isn't really ideal.

Terrible and poorly planned - waste of a day
Natasha_J
, Aug 2021
This tour was poorly planned. It was supposed to be a Niagara on the lake tour but the bus took us to a few places all the way in St Catherines and even outside of that. Most of the day was spent on the bus driving. The lunch was a picnic lunch and didn’t even have the option to purchase wine during the lunch. Was a waste on money. Horrible experience and would not recommend.

Too long
Danna_C
, Aug 2021
The wine wasting was really great but the route we had to take to get to these wineries really caused the day to drag out. We visited five wineries where we enjoyed sampling’s at each place (although our itinerary has said we would only get samples at 4) and our driver Ken was amazing! I just wish the route were more consistent rather than waste hours on driving where we could have been spending going from wineries that were closer to each other. In the end we had to rush to make our reservations and most of the day (approximately 10 hours) was spent on the tour when I received an email saying we would be finished earlier in the day.
