Many activities come to mind when thinking of summers in the Okanagan, and trips to the valley’s vineyards are chief among them. And great news for those missing the visits due to COVID-19: Wine tours are back – with protocols.
Wicked Wine Tours is one of the many companies to begin tours this month. While operations will look much different, Wicked Wine Tours president Nicholas Wilson says it’s just nice to be back.
“We’re super excited,” Wilson says. “Obviously, tourism is a people-first business and we’ve been missing our people, that’s for sure.”
To ensure guest safety, Wilson has implemented several procedures. Tours will be limited to a maximum of six people, with only one tour each day, and walk-ins will not be permitted, so be sure to reserve in advance.
“We will be practicing social distancing,” Wilson says, noting that only their larger vehicles will be in use.
“We maintain an immaculate fleet already, but we will continue to wash and sanitize between tours. Complimentary masks and sanitizer will be available for guests and tour guides will also be wearing masks.”
