Luxury Wine Tours of Vancouver Island
Vancouver Island is home to beautiful vineyards that offer award winning wines. You will have the choice of experiencing some of the finest vineyards on the Saanich Peninsula or the lush Cowichan Valley. I always recommend the Cowichan Valley as it is home to some of the oldest and largest vineyards on the island. I grew up in this area so I know these ole country roads like the back of my hand, It would be my pleasure to share the finest scenery the valley has to offer. The tour consists of 3 stops, at each stop you would typically get an average of 4 tastings. I would typically recommend two wine vineyards and a Cidery.
I can accommodate up at a maximum of 21 passengers, please inquire for customized tours and rates.
Please be advised that over the winter months some vineyards change there tastings hours at the last minute, so please expect last minute changes.

I work at a hotel downtown and we've booked Darwin many times for tours, airport shuttle for large groups, and basically any guests that needed a van and driver outside of the downtown core. He always receive great reviews from guests. For my birthday tour, I had a couple ideas and Darwin was very informative and responded to emails quickly, before the tour was even booked! Him and his wife were professional and helped provide a relaxing and enjoyable afternoon experience! Will recommend again!
