This was our first time at a wine tour and what I loved about it was that a bus or van picks us up so there is no driving on our part. The driver was very knowledgeable and very friendly. The tour took us to Domaine de Grand-Pré, Planters Ridge Winery and Annapolis Cider Company. Since it was November we... More

Our tour was such an amazing way to spend a day. The tour guide was hilarious, which made the actual bus ride really enjoyable. The wineries had a great variety to taste and a multitude of knowledge to learn from. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing a side of Nova Scotia I wasn't fully informed about. We also went in the Fall...

We had a group of 8 for our tour through Grape Escapes. We visited L'Acadie, Luckett and Gaspareau vineyards. All were excellent and quite different from each other. My favorite was L'Acadie for its small charm and organic producing status, and a knowledgeable and entertaining host. We had lunch at Luckett, which was delicious, and the view was fantastic.

Couldn't have asked for a better experience. To start the trip off we encountered a slight logistical error with a last minute adjustment with pick ups. Long story short one of my guests wasn't pick up in Halifax so essential they missed the bus. Our bus driver Randy handled the situation very professionally and rectified the situation. Without questioning me... More
