"Awesome Virtual Wine Tasting Experience!!!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed July 11, 2020 NEW
I did a virtual wine tasting with Mackenzie via zoom with my father who lives in a different city from me and is self-isolating. We both really enjoyed our experience. My father called me right away after the wine tasting to tell me that he was so impressed with Mackenzie and how he was so knowledgable and charismatic. I echo his sentiments. I am so happy with our experience and so happy that my dad loved his father's day gift. Thank you Mackenzie!

I just want to thank Mackenzie with New World Wine Tours. I signed up for this private tour and no one else ended up signing up and he didn’t cancel on me! He still took me to visit the vineyards. He is so knowledgeable about the Canadian wine country. He is such a pleasure to be around! He put up with me and my millennial behaviors! He took a million pictures of me and boomerang videos too. He picked me up from my hotel and dropped me back! I’m so glad I did this tour! The tour started with a trip to Niagra Falls! It was gorgeous! Then he tailored the wine part of the tour to what I liked. I told him I love reds and champagne so we specifically went to wineries that are known for that! I would definitely recommend going on this tour! Worth every penny! 5 stars ⭐️

Took my team on the Niagara Wine Tour yesterday and had a great time [in November!] visiting both large [Stratus and Gretsky's] and boutique [Between the Lines] wineries and had a lovely lunch at Ravine Vineyards. The staff at each venue were knowledgeable and approachable and we learned about micro-climates and windmills that circulate the warmer air in winter to preserve the vines. Great job at co-ordinating MacKenzie!

"Awesome PEC wine tour with Eduardo!"

Booked a private half day wine tour in Prince Edward County for my sister's bachelorette and we couldn't have had a better experience! Mackenzie helped us coordinate all of the details leading up to the day which included planning out which wineries and distilleries we would be visiting. He had some great recommendations! Mackenzie was very responsive with e-mails and was able to accommodate all of our requests. The tour itself was phenomenal. Eduardo was our tour guide and he was very knowledgeable about not just the wines but the area as well. Our favourite winery was definitely Closson! Their wines are amazing. Overall, a great experience and would definitely recommend New World for anyone who is considering a wine tour.
