For my bachlorette party, my sisters and closest friends surprised me with a trip to Osoyoos for a wine tour. Beforehand, Kent worked with one of my bridesmaids to recommend some great wineries so we wouldn't have to make any decisions on the day of the tour. On the day of, Kent picked us up right from our house at 10am, where we started the tour. We saw seven awesome wineries, and had a delicious lunch. He was super flexible during the tour when we made a game-time decision to add a few more of my faves to the tour. The owners and sommeliers at the wineries all knew Kent and gave us the royal treatment because we were with him. Kent was so friendly and knowledgeable - we loved spending the day with him!
"Great experience - an absolute must"
One of our best decisions on a recent trip to the South Okanagan. Kent knows the wineries (the history) as well as the people who make the wine as well as those who add to the wine tasting experience. After asking what our wishes were Kent constructed a tour (with several excellent additions) that met all our expectations and more. The fact that he is personable and friendly without being overbearing was icing on the cake. If you are in the Osoyoos/Oliver area to sample a bit of wine do yourself a favour and let Kent be your host for a few hours. Great to be able to go wine tasting and not have to be concerned about driving. Highly recommend Desert Country Wine tours with Kent.
"Great times - highly recommended"
This was my 10th visit to the Okanagan, and I really thought I had seen it all. To my delight, Kent took our party to several out-of-the-way wineries and restaurants that I never would have found on my own! I am now a true believer in the value of a tour guide with deep local knowledge like Kent, and will definitely hire him again for my next visit.
