Testimonials

The following are just some of the wonderful things our customers have said about our tours.

Excellent

“I loved my experience with then, they were very friendly, always willing to try and accomodate my request for little changes. They were also able to put me on the Benh tour which I had requested but there wasn’t any driver going to that region when I booked. They phoned me a few days later to say they had managed to organise a group to go to the Bench which was great! I strongly recommend you ask for the Bench tour instead of the Niagara tour: the wines and wineries there are a well kept secret!”

Informative tour guide adds greatly to a good experience….

My husband and I enjoyed the tour immensely.

“Each winery had different points of interest; and our guide, Chris, shared his knowledge, and interesting stories, along the way. Pleasant lunch at the Charles Inn and recommendations in the region added to the trip immensely. Would definitely book again!”

Educational and a Little off the Beaten Path

“We went on a Bench Appellation Tour last week and we loved it! It is such a great area to explore and our guide Chris provided us with detailed information (the amazing views helped our education) and he was happy to answer any questions. The wineries were fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed our lunch in Jordan. We especially loved the stories behind the Sue Ann Staff and Di Profio wineries…not to mention the wines were fabulous at all of the stops.

We were paired with another couple (minimum 4 for the tour) and it was fine. We booked via the website with no issues and the other couple said they called and had a good experience. The tour is definitely recommended!”

Had a Fantastic time.

“I booked a half day wine tour for my wife’s 50th Birthday with some of our closest friends. We were taken to 3 wineries in the Vineland – Beamsville area, close to where we all live. The tour guide (Tom) was very informative and made the tour quite enjoyable.

We were served wine and charcuterie plates at the first winery. At the second and third wineries we were given complete tours and samples of some very nice wines.

Our entire group of 12 really enjoyed every aspect of the tour and it made for a fantastic birthday celebration for my wife.

I had been planning this for quite some time and had many conversations with Becky in the office. I am very happy with the itinerary she set up. All 3 wineries were fantastic.

I would highly recommend Niagara Vintage Wine Tours and look forward to the opportunity to book with them again.”

excellent experience

“I had the pleasure of taking a tour in the Niagara Bench wine region May 22/14. Chris our tour guide has exceptional knowledge of wines in general and especially the Niagara Region. We visited 4 wineries Peninsula Ridge, Kew Vineyards, Megalomaniac and Kacaba. All wines tasted were very good, 3 that were exceptional are Marsanne Viognier 2012, Heritage 2011 from Kew and 2010 Reserve Cabernet Franc from Kacaba. Two things worth noting are the views from Megalomaniac Winery are spectacular as they are located high on a ridge with expansive views of other Vineyards, Lake Ontario and Toronto on clear day! All that combined with exceptional wines is a must visit! We had lunch at the 4 star Inn On The Twenty and highly recommend it.

I have taken other wine tours but Vintage Wine Tours is my #1 choice.”

Amazing Time Two Years in a Row!

“The first time I went with NVWT was absolutely incredible, our driver was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly, taking her time to explain everything. As it was just my mother and myself we really enjoyed a full day of touring and tasting. This year I went back for another tour with my boyfriend (again it was just the two of us on the tour), even though he never really enjoyed wine as much as I do he absolutely loved the trip and found bottle upon bottle to bring home! Our guide even sneaked in an extra winery, Di Profio, in Jordan is a must visit! I would recommend this company to anyone looking for a tour in the NOTL or Bench area.

Amazing from start to finish

“My husband had planned a private tour for us for my birthday (07/20/2013). Our pick up time was for 9:45am in our hotel lobby. Tom (our very knowledgeable tour guide) arrived at approx. 9:40 and greeted us with the information of what our day was to entail and our ride a Mercedes Benz. We visited four different wineries two which were located on Niagara on the Lake and two which were in the Jordan area( two before lunch two after). Even with being from the area we were able to see and learn a lot more then we had before especially about wine and the history of the region. Any question we had was answered above and beyond our expectations by both Tom and our various tour guides. We were able to purchase wine from each place which was nice because you knew what you were buying as the wineries would let you try a variety of their products. Around 12:30 we stopped for a three course lunch in Jordan which was delicious! My husband and I both had asparagus, roasted red pepper soup and i had a duck BLT and he had the trout and we both had a berry cobbler for dessert. Our tour came to an end around 3:30 pm and on the way back Tom was nice enough to tell us about local places to eat that were well priced and not a regular chain restaurant. We went to a place called Taps where they have a beer sampler for around $6.00 as they are also a brewery. I would highly recommend this tour if you come from near or far if you are an experienced wine drinker or new, it offers something for everyone.

A full day of privet touring

“A full day of privet touring after talking to Chris on our preferences he puts together a wonderful day for our group of six .We started at Niagara on the Lake where Chris our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and had not only knowledge about the wineries but local history facts. Then it was off to lunch at a four Diamond restaurant after lunch we went to the Vineland, Jordan, and Beamsville Bench wineries where we toured two more wineries. It was a great day from start to finish lots of wine tasting and good food I would highly recommend this tour company.”
