We were part of the group that was involved in the accident on Saturday, October 22. Our driver, David, was amazing in his efforts to make sure we were safe. His actions resulted in our not having any threatening injuries. After the incident, the owners of the Between the Lines winery were amazing. They stepped up and made sure we were OK and offered their winery while we waited for another tour bus. They offered us food and many servings of their incredible wine. Our new driver, Richard, went out of his way to make sure we were happy with our other tasting sessions. Can't say enough about how well we were treated and taken care of by your staff. From a situation that could have been traumatic, we came out with 6 new amazing friends. Based on our situation, our experience did end up being very memorable.

It was our first time doing a winery tour and this tour did not disappoint. It was a great overall experience. Konzelman winery stood out with the famous peach wine and beautiful family story. Pilliteri's had some great ice wines and we got to see the famous 42 ft. Long concrete table. Inniskilin was a little busier but a beautiful property. We weren't informed much about the history of the winery but we got to enjoy the wine outside on the picnic benches and just relax. Their Vidal ice wine was delicious!

We really enjoyed this tour, visited three awesome wineries, tasted and learned a lot. We also had time to visit and had lunch at Niagara on the Lake.

Experience was great and our driver was fabulous. Thanks so much!!! See you next year.

It was alot of fun! our guide was fantastic! very knowledgeable and accommodating.
