Frequently asked questions
Ready for a delightful experience in Kelowna? Wicked Tours has got your back! We offer the perfect wine tour experience and book all tasting and lunch appointments. Our guide will pick you up from your accommodation in an immaculate vehicle and take you to the best wineries around the Okanagan Valley. During your tour, you'll enjoy beautiful tastings of various BC wines, explore each winery, snap some fantastic pictures, shop - and even more! Our friendly guide is also on-hand to help with taking photos, carrying bottles, recommending restaurants and entertainment spots - and anything else you might need before returning safely to your vacation home.
Wine tours offer a wonderful way to taste wines while touring beautiful vineyards. Tour times are usually listed on each tour's page. Full-day tours typically depart at 10:30 AM and last for 5-8 hours, while half-day tours depart at 10:30 AM and 3:00 PM, lasting three hours each.
If you're looking for an amazing experience that offers great value and fun, then a wine tour is the perfect choice. At our company, we have years of experience touring the Okanagan Valley, so we know which wineries to go to and which ones to avoid. We provide convenient pick-up and drop-off services so everyone can enjoy their tour without worrying about driving. You will also be accompanied by one of our knowledgeable Tour Guides who are sure to make your tour enjoyable with assistance and laughs!
Most of our tours offer an upgrade to a private wine tour. When booking online, the option to upgrade to a private wine tour is available during the booking process. Groups of ten or more guests are private for no extra charge.
Enjoy the beauty of winter in Kelowna and explore the Okanagan's best wineries on a winter tour! Our wine tours are available all year round, giving guests unique opportunities to experience exclusive tastings and tours. Even during the cooler months, you can get up close and personal with the winemakers, explore behind-the-scenes experiences, and enjoy an intimate understanding of what wine tours in Kelowna have to offer.
Absolutely! We offer private wine tours for bachelorette parties that are designed to give you and your friends an unforgettable experience. From guided tastings to chartered transportation, we have everything you need to make your bachelorette party one that your group will never forget.
Sparkling Hill Resort guests wishing to join public group tours will need to find alternate transportation to meet the tour group. However, for full-day, private groups only, we offer to pick-up and drop-off directly from Sparkling Hill Resort for $200.
Winery and facility tasting fees are included in tour rates. Your Tour Guide will advise you if you visit a facility with optional tasting fees (an extra fee to taste icewine, for example). The number and variety of wines offered at wineries are subject to change and are at the facility's sole discretion. Most facilities offer four to five samples at each stop.
Half-day tours are three hours and do not permit time to stop for a meal. Full-day tours are designed to allow time for a leisurely lunch stop. Tours that stop for lunch EXCLUDE the cost of lunch. Wicked Tours will coordinate restaurant reservations for your group. We select restaurants based on quality, availability, group size, requests, holidays, and other factors. Guests pay the restaurant directly.
Restaurant requests are welcome but not guaranteed. Wicked Tours is NOT responsible for communicating food allergies, or dietary restrictions, and guests should inform the restaurant upon arrival. Lunch stops typically offer vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. For private, full-day tours only, guests are welcome to bring a picnic as a substitute for a winery lunch.
Your Tour Guide will collect payment after the tour. We accept cash, and credit cards, including American Express, MasterCard, and Visa. Debit is not available. Gratuities are not included. For groups of eight or more and private tours, an 18% gratuity will be added.
Corporate shuttle service is available throughout the year, and airport ski shuttles to Big White Ski Resort and SilverStar Mountain Resort is available during the winter. See Shuttles for more information.
Plans sometimes change. We get it; it happens to us too. So we're happy to provide a hassle-free, 100% refund if you give us 48 hours notice. Within 48 hours, we've already started preparing for your tour, and we can't quickly fill your slot, so we can't provide you with a refund in that case, and there is a 100% charge for the entire invoice. Very, very rarely, we're the ones that have to cancel. We'll try hard not to, but if we do, we'll ask if you prefer to reschedule or have us refund you. Should government restrictions prevent tours from operating, reservations can be rescheduled or are 100% refundable.
Wicked Tours is proud to maintain a modern and immaculately maintained fleet. Our fleet includes late-model 11/14-passenger Ford Transit vans and a Lincoln Navigator SUV. With us, no bus!
Tours are available to book online all year for groups of 2-14 guests. We can accommodate group sizes upwards of 50: please get in touch with us for more information and a personalized quote. Large groups travel together in our fleet but may be separated into smaller groups at facilities.
We are pleased to offer complimentary pick-up and drop-off at most Kelowna locations, including hotels, Airbnb, B&Bs, and residences. We aim to provide guests a safe and convenient service while ensuring adequate time is spent tasting and not riding in a vehicle!
We understand that our region offers various accommodation options outside our pick-up zone. Guests staying outside these areas may be eligible for pick-up and drop-off on full-day tours only for an additional fee of $10-20 per person depending on group size, location, and which tour they are joining. These locations include:
- Black Mountain
- Chute Lake Road
- Gallagher's Canyon
- McKinley Landing
- Quail Ridge
- University of British Columbia Okanagan (UBCO)
- Upper Mission
- West Kelowna
Sparkling Hill Resort, Big White Resort, Predator Ridge, La Casa Resort, and Lake Okanagan Resort are outside our public pick-up zone.

Wine tours are fun for non-drinkers, too! We have special tour rates for adult guests who choose not to participate in wine tasting, and 'riders' receive tasty, locally-made Motherlove Kombucha.
The consumption of alcohol in motor vehicles in British Columbia is against the law. We encourage you to have fun, but please be aware of local laws; safety is paramount.
No. Wine and cheese are a great pairing, but not so much in a vehicle. We take great pride in maintaining an impeccable fleet, and that includes ensuring guests don't smell cheese smashed into our carpet! Outside food or beverages are not permitted. Complimentary bottled water is provided. For full-day, private groups only, guests are welcome to bring a picnic as a substitute for a winery lunch.
Tours are designed for guests of legal consumption age, and many guests appreciate the opportunity for an adult environment. Children under 19 are not permitted on public tours but may be allowed on private tours. Rotary Centre for the Arts offers Arts Blast camps for children ages 5-12 throughout the summer.
We love animals, too! For allergy and cleanliness reasons, pets are not permitted, no matter how well-trained or adorable.
Tours operate rain or shine. Wine tastings are usually inside tasting rooms, cellars, or under covered patios, and we offer complimentary umbrellas. Rainy days are an excellent time for wine tours: you're not missing a day on the beach or the golf course! Please dress accordingly.
Itineraries are listed on each tour. Winery requests are welcome but not guaranteed.
Guests often ask us: "How do you choose the stops?" Good question! We carefully select our partners based on two factors: do they have great products, and is the experience unique or excellent? If they don't deliver on both, we don't visit. We constantly seek out a better tour experience for our guests! We regularly review guest and Tour Guide feedback, and each year we adjust our itineraries to add exciting newcomers and replace those who do not meet expectations.
We'll always do our best to deliver a wicked tour! The venue, facility tours, and some experiences are subject to availability, season, group size, and other factors out of our control. Due to unforeseen circumastances and availability, Wine Tours reserves the right to change vehicles, guides, schedules, and facilities.
No. Tour schedules reflect the availability of wineries and restaurants and are not adjustable.
Reservations are available for single guests on most tours. Public tours require a minimum of two guests to operate. If the tour capacity is unmet, we will contact you to schedule an available tour or refund your deposit. Pick-up requests are not guaranteed for single guests. You may be asked to meet at a central location for pick-up/drop-off. If pick-up at your requested location is unavailable, we will contact you 24 hours before your tour to schedule an alternate location.
