“Awesome Wine Tour with an Excellent Guide!”
“My sisters booked this tour for my stagette and I must say I was blown away. Our tour guide Allen was knowledgeable and very entertaining. He was laid back but also knew how to keep us on schedule. He made my day very special. We had such a GREAT time and I would come back and do the tour all over again!!! Highly recommended!!!!”

“Great Choice for a Stagette”
“We had a blast with our tour guide, Allen. As a rowdy bunch of stagette ladies looking for a good time, he was a great balance of “stick to the schedule!” and “party! Party! PARTY!”

“A wonderful day!”
“My four closest friends and I drove to Kelowna to spend a day wine touring for my bachelorette. We couldn’t have been more pleased! Our tour guide was Allen, who was extremely laid-back, flexible and entertaining. He was very knowledgeable about different wines and growing conditions, as well as about the area, and when he learned that we had no plans that evening he even persuaded a couple of extra wineries to squeeze us in before we headed home! Thank you for the fabulous day!”

Our tour guide Lou was very professional and accommodating. She went above and beyond to make our day fabulous!”
- Kempf Waterloo, ON June 2015
“We were blessed with Lou as our guide. Not only did she arrange for a variety of wineries to suit our desires, she gave us a great overview of the area. By the time we reached our first winery, we felt so welcomed and comfortable, it was if we had known her for a lifetime.”

“The Best Host Ever!”
At our hotel we were picked up by Allen, probably the best host we have ever had in any customer service experience. We were greeted with a big smile and friendly conversation. He promised us we would have an amazing time and he certainly delivered. Allen provided us with a ton of information about the area (new to area) which was very cool, and a lot of history behind each of the wineries we visited.”

“They set the bar!”
We LOVED our tour and the beautiful wineries we were taken to. We totally scored with our incredibly knowledgeable and hilarious guide Allen. He is a cornucopia of awesomeness.
Scott & Wendy K. Bow Island, AB August 2015
Everything was such a great experience- from booking to the tour itself. We had Allen as a tour guide and he was great- very knowledgeable and it’s easy to see he enjoys what he does. If you really want an enjoyable experience and want to learn a lot about wine, go on a tour with Allen.

“The Only Way to Tour the Okanagan Wineries”
What a fantastic day. Allen was a great guide who took us not only to the major wineries but also to some of the smaller obscure ones where we got great samples and even an opportunity to meet the owners. After all the tastings we knew we made the right choice. Allen was a great host, gave us some history lessons and was very accommodating to all 4 of us on the tour.

“Great Wine Tour!”
Allen is the man! Very knowledgeable, friendly, and just an all-around awesome guy. We went to 5 wineries. We got a reservation at Quail’s Gate for supper, he drove us to where we were staying to drop off our wine. Then while we were eating, he drove all the way back to deliver my key which I forgot in his van. Thanks Allen.

“Nectar of the gods”
I purchased this wine tour for my girlfriend as a cool way to celebrate her birthday while we were on our BC road trip. I was a little concerned with the price at first, having no clue what to expect as we’ve never done this before. Much to my delight my concerns were quickly discarded after having met our guide Allen and seeing the value he provided.
Allen picked us up at our Kelowna hotel and while driving to our first of 5 wineries he provided us with the basics of all things wine tasting. His knowledge and instruction was excellent. He is fun and yet very professional. His expertise of the wineries, personal contacts within each was an obvious benefit to us.
Allen was so attentive to our desires he altered our tour to include a winery that was not part of our schedule but I asked if we could go. He pulled some strings and got us a tasting with a Sommelier at Quail’s Gate.
Wrapping it all up, this tour was terrific and well worth the price. Allen is a terrific guide and made it so much fun. We had an awesome day as it was the highlight of our road trip. A flavour explosion our taste buds thoroughly enjoyed.
Looking forward to our next tour and hope we’re fortunate to have Allen as our guide

“Good Friends, Better Times”
Allen Allen who has a best friend Steve is the man. 4 friends on a wine adventure couldn’t have asked for a better guide. Allen knows the Okanagan Valley and its vineyards. He was also good for a lot of laughs and his photograph skills are on point. Thanks for an amazing time!

“An amazing (and quite tipsy) time!”
First and foremost, our man Allen was a rock star. He assessed his audience very quickly and was cracking jokes with us from the get-go. Allen was very flexible with our schedule and threw in a couple of recommendations to our tour which were great additions. He didn’t pressure us once with respect to time and let us go at our own pace. Our experience would not have been the same without him. Thanks again, Allen!

“FUN!! Wine Tour”
Recently two friends and I signed up for two days of tours. There were five of us altogether and right from the start we got along so well. The first day we had a driver by the name of Allen Burke. Allen was just the best – why? He was courteous, very knowledgeable, carried all our purchases for us, careful driver but above all else, Allen was FUN!! My friends and I asked him if he could possibly work it to be our driver for the second day, luck was with us. All the winery people seem to know him. So when booking a tour be sure to ask for Allen Burke.

“Allen MADE the day”
On Tuesday, Allen Burke picked myself and 2 friends up at the Capri Hotel in Kelowna for our wine tour – the All Star. We were joined by another couple, celebrating 25 years of marriage. Allen MADE the day — he was so courteous, helpful, very careful driver, funny and attentive. The next day my friends and I were to go on the Summerland tour — we asked if Allen could be our driver. We had a fabulous second day — Allen lugging all our wine and purchases to the car for us – and treating us to some fabulous wineries. I would highly recommend you ask for Allen Burke if you would like to spend a fabulous day in the Okanagan.

“BC Road Trip 2015”
We loved our time on the wine tour. Our guide, Allen, was amazing. So friendly and passionate about his work. I would highly recommend this tour and if you’re lucky then you will land a tour with Allen. He was very accommodating, funny and personable. A+ tour.
Andrew C. Regina, SK. August 2015
Whilst staying in Vernon, I along with the three others I was accompanied by wanted to take a little vineyard tour throughout the Lake Country area.
While on tour we had Allen as our driver. He was very pleasant and informative not to mention funny and charismatic!! He also made a few phone calls so we could get into the newest winery called Blind Tiger which was wonderful as we had the whole place to ourselves as we ate our snacks and shared a nice bottle of wine.
I highly suggest you ask for Allen if you are in the Lake Country area and are wanting to go on a wine tour such as this. It was lovely and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

“Couldn’t Ask For More!”
I have been on other wine tours in the past but nothing compares to the service we received – especially our driver Allen. He made sure to give us the red carpet treatment.

“Best Ever Wine Tour”
Allen was super knowledgeable and had a wonderful personality. I have never laughed so hard and had such a great time. We took mom and dad whom have never been on a wine tour and LOVED it. They’re planning to go again before we leave Kelowna. I’m telling you, this tour is amazing and make sure you ask for Allen. We did the West Kelowna tour!!!

“Fab 5 Vines and Views Wine Tour with Allen!!”
Every year we do a Sole Sista’s Mystery Trip and this year we were taken to Kelowna, BC!! We had a Fab 5 winery tour with Allen and it could not have been BETTER! Allen was so much fun, joined in our fun and knew so much about the area! We would recommend him and this tour whole heartily! Each winery had something to offer and the people were fantastic! The lunch from Basket Case Picnics was delicious!! If you have a chance, go and be sure to request Allen!! We “thoroughly” enjoyed ourselves! Thank you so much!!

“The Host with the Most! Awesome Experience and Service!”
Our company recently had a local meeting where we did the West Kelowna wine tour. Our tour guide, Allen, was amazing right from the start. He promptly picked us up from our hotel and immediately captured our attention with his friendly and funny personality. He was quite knowledgeable about the places we were going and took the time to really ensure we were all enjoying ourselves. We also had requested we wind up at a nice winery for dinner and this company booked our reservations for us. Further to that, Allen and his kind and generous personality, collected all of our wine purchases and even delivered them to our hotel so we didn’t need to worry about them over dinner! This experience was amazing and I would highly recommend Allen as the best guide EVER! Thanks so much!

“Enjoyable Wine Tour”
My friend and I went on our first wine tour with Allen as our guide. We really enjoyed visiting different wineries around Kelowna and learning about the wines. Allen was very accommodating and humorous. He was great to chat with. We loved our snacks that were provided! Had an awesome time!!
