We had a great time! Our tour guide Gavin was very knowledgeable on the vineyards and there history which made our trip even more enjoyable! The whole staff was awesome! Would recommend this tour to anybody of all ages (over 19). They go at the perfect pace so no one is left behind.

All in all it was a fun experience. The biking was scenic and leisurely. All employees of Niagara Wine Tours were friendly and accommodating. I liked the fact that any wine purchases made along the way were then at Butler street office at end of the tour for us to pick up- rather than having to go pick up ourselves.The full faculty tour of a winery - the process of wine making was interesting. Only downside was there was not allotted much time at each winery visited 3. On the Viator description of the tour it stated there would be 14 wine tastings we had tastings of 10. Other than that was a experience I would suggest to others.
