Good things - or guide/driver was really pleasant to talk to nod ensured that we got everywhere safely and to time. There were only six of us on the tour and it felt very laid back throughout which was just what we wanted. Things to possibly improve - it felt a bit as though our guide was only there to drive us from place to place and he didn't really have a great deal of knowledge to share about the vineyards or the wine produced there. It might have been nice to have had a more formal talk about wine tasting and to actually tour a vineyard. Overall still enjoyed it as it was a lovely sunny and relaxing day with a very nice lunch and pleasant company.

It would have been nice to have been able to go to 1 or 2 more wineries- we drove right by Damali. Guide was self-deprecating, and undersold their wine knowledge. Think they were trying to be honest about how little they knew, but I think they could have just stood in confidence about what they did know and say they were continually learning. Lunch was disappointing and cheap, plastic cheese- yuck. We did have fun though overall. Just some areas for improvement.

Lovely day in the valley. We got to have some input as to which wineries we visited (Unsworth, Enrico, and Cherry Point--all great). Eric was a great guide--he was very friendly. The atmosphere was nice, and we never felt rushed. We took the Cowichan Tour last year, and we loved it so much that we decided to take it again this year.
