I highly recommend this tour. You will have great food and drinks and visit out of the way places you would probably just walk by if on your own. -Mary from Toronto

We ate, drank and laughed our way through the afternoon/evening. We visited places we never would have ventured in to otherwise. The only downside was it felt like ended way too soon!!! 🙂 We will be back in PV next April and we wouldn't hesitate to do another tour. Tara from Vancouver
