We enjoyed our whole day! Emandare tour was awsome and very informative, all the wineries were great, but the individual touch of Emandare was very much appreciated.

Fantastic day with friends!
Jun 2019 • Friends
Leif is a wonderful guide. He was open to our interests, freely shared his knowledge about wine and the area, and made us all feel very comfortable. There are so many wineries to explore in the Cowichan Valley! I would highly recommend taking one of Leif's tours. It's a perfect way to explore the beverage scene while spending time with friends. One last note - as a generally nervous passenger, I found Leif to be an excellent driver and I felt safe and comfortable the whole time.

Great tour with an opportunity to try many different wines
May 2019 • Couples
We thoroughly enjoyed this fabulous full day tour. We had the opportunity to try many different wines. We visited 3 wineries and each one was unique. We also enjoyed the 4 different ciders that we had with lunch. The meal at lunch was excellent - there were many choices and everyone in our group of 6 enjoyed their selection. Leif is a great tour guide with lots of knowledge. He was accompanied by Blaze who was also great. The tour is a great value when you consider that all the tastings and lunch are included. I highly recommend this tour.

We had a great time on our tour. The stops were very interesting. Our tour guide Leif is very knowledgeable. The salmon, tuna and oysters were delicious at St Jeans. We also tried some really good beer, vodka and Gin.

Had a great time with a small group and a great tour guide who was very knowledgeable and nice. Leif answered all questions and made the trip fun. Being a local from Nanaimo I didn't even realize we had these beautiful winery's so close, it was great.

We loved having you on the tour! So many people don't realize how many beautiful wineries with excellent wines right here on our island. Glad we could show you some of our favourites!

Outstanding Wine and Cider tour!
Oct 2018 • Couples
My Wife and I had a wonderful time exploring wineries and a cidery in and around the Cowichan Valley with our expert guide, Brendan. Door-to-door service in a big comfy van is so much better than trying to drive yourself - and with Brendan's knowledge of the area, his wine and cider expertise and his great personality, this tour is a must-do and is worth every penny - and more! Incidentally, the lunch was fantastic! We are already looking forward to our visit next summer and will definitely call ahead to make sure Vancouver Island Expeditions has space available before we ink our vacation time.
