Hi, I am Sandra, your tour guide. I am a professional photographer and a certified wine consultant. I have put together this tour to share my wine expertise, and love of photography with you. I worked for many years at Niagara College Teaching Winery, where we teach professional wine making. I have seen the wine industry grow up over the last 25 years and know a lot about the history of wineries in Niagara-on-the-Lake. I will take you to some of my favorite wineries where I have the inside scoop. The tour is designed to give you a thorough understanding of wine appreciation from vineyard to glass with lots of personal attention. We'll have fun along the way taking pictures at each winery so you can re-live the day. The professional photographs will be sent to you when you return home, so you can share them with family and friends.

Sandra was well versed in everything wine. Her selection of vineyards not only had great wines but also great history that she explained well. At the end of our experience we were knowledgeable in food and wine pairing. Her attention to detail with each photo opportunity left us with the best memories. She had great hospitality and made us feel like one of the locals enjoying our favorite glass of wine on a cool breezy Sunday. 10 out of 10 must book again.

We had the BEST day with Sandra as our experience host. Everything from accommodating a late booking, picking us up for our tour and being so mindful of my own anxieties around covid, the thoughtful approach to booking the wineries for our tour and all the amazing information shared with us about the area, the history, the wineries, the process of wine making and making sure each place we visited knew it was a special day for us (25th anniversary) was wonderful. Sandra is a warm, welcoming and fun host to spend time with and really gave us so much attention that a group wine tour would never have been able to do. She took fun pictures throughout the day and even made us forget she was there with her camera at times capturing our experience. We highly recommend this outing for anyone - we are new to wine in generals, but Sandra made us feel like helping us learn and enjoy NOTL and the wineries was her top priority all day long. I can’t say enough good things about this experience.

We had a lovely time! We went in with very limited knowledge and experience, and we feel so much more capable of choosing the right wine! Sandra was friendly, knowledgeable and a blast to be around!

Sandra was very personable, she took my girlfriend and I out to celebrate our 10th anniversary and really helped make it a unique experience. Sandra was very knowledgeable and very tactful. She knew it was a special occasion for us and gave us the privacy to enjoy the beautiful scenery. She also did an amazing job capturing the day. We will absolutely recommend this experience to our family and friends.

Right from the start, our wine tour private experience exceeded expectations. Not just exceeded, but blew us away! Their description of the wine tour excursion was spot on. Sandra was in constant contact with us by email. She confirmed pick up time right from the door step of our Airbnb! She told us to eat a larger than normal breakfast because it would tide us over until the provided charcuterie tray. Mmmmm Upon pick up, masks were worn and a Covid checklist was completed. She provided hand sanitizer before entering her vehicle. It was a super hot day and her air conditioned luxury SUV was so nice. Sandra asked our wine knowledge and based her information and explanations based on our wine knowledge . BTW, we were wine newbies. After the 5 hour excursion, we are much more knowledgeable. Sandra thoroughly explained the history of the Niagara on the Lake region and why wineries are flourishing there. She is also a professional photographer with many years of experience. She made us feel totally relaxed and took so many photos of our day trip. Sandra’s wine knowledge is incredible. She truly is the perfect wine tour expert for anyone to book. The cost of booking with her was 100% worth it. We would highly, highly recommend her services to you. You won’t be in a group of 10-30 people trying to hear what the wine tour guide is saying. You’re one on one with just her! The 3 wineries we toured were all unique in their own ways. That was eye opening and interesting. Not having the worry of driving was another factor. No taxi or Uber needed. She picked us up and dropped us off right at the doorstep. In fact, here’s an example of how she went above and beyond our expectations. Earlier in the tour, she casually asked if we’ve ever tried fresh fruits from NOTL. We replied no. At the end of our 3rd and final winery experience, she asked if we were in a rush to get home. We said no. She then drove out of her way to show us multiple peach farms and fresh produce farms. She stopped at one and let us buy some local, fresh fruit! That, made us shake our heads in disbelief. Sandra is the ultimate host and she is so good, we plan on booking her next summer for another wine tour experience with my sister in-law and her hubby. After showing them pictures of our excursion, they are so excited about next year. You, Sandra, are a true professional and anyone who books her, will not be disappointed. Not one iota. We truly love her. Sincerely, Brian & Ann-Marie F.
