“This was a perfect and relaxing day in the surrounding farm country. Visiting the various, local wineries was enjoyable and most interesting. The driver was very friendly and helpful, and the lunch we were treated to was delicious and delightful.
Thank you South Fraser Shuttles & Tours for a great day in my own backyard.”
— Junie Howie - August 2011, White Rock, BC
"The tour was very well organized. At each venue we were very well received. They made sure to introduce every presenter and inform us of any discounts available. The drive between venues was enjoyable, the food served excellent, the information provided throughout was very good, everything was properly identified so that everyone would collect all of their purchases at the end of the trip.
A more attentive guide would be very hard to find. Every time something needed attention they were there. They made us feel very comfortable and welcomed. This tour was thoroughly enjoyed by all. I highly recommend anyone interested in taking such a tour to take this one. There is no doubt that they will enjoy it. Thank you very much Dan & Lisa!"
— Dan & Rosalba Lamont-August 2011, Surrey, BC
What a lovely way to explore the local wineries. The staff at all the wineries were all freindly and welcoming, happy to see thier familar friend Dan and his guests he brought. They all spent that extra time and attention to us which made us feel all the more special for the day. Thanks to Dan and Lisa for making it a fantastic way to spend a birthday!!!!

"Dan and Lisa,
I want to thank you both so much for the most fascinating tour of the winery s in Surrey, Langley and Lulu Island. All 5 of the wineries were so different from the variety of grapes that were used to the fields. The Ice Wines were great.
The bus was comfortable so we could communicate between all of us about the wines and speak to each other. Lisa's lunch was fantastic and very enjoyable as it was a nice warm day to be able to eat it outside in the grape field was an added bonus. I was able to get some pointers from one of the employees regarding my grapes so had time between places to see, buy and ask questions. No rushing "gotta go" feelings. I know I called you the next morning with "Thanks for the great sleep I had last nite" But it was meant to be a big thank you for the way the tour was given."
— Doris Todd, Retired - August 2011, Coquitlam, BC
“We really enjoyed our local wine tour with South Fraser Shuttles & Tours. All the wineries were great, Dan was a terrific guide and the catered lunch by Lisa was superb. It was a great day to be out in the country and we would recommend this tour to anyone interested in experiencing our backyard Vineyards & Wineries. Thanks!"
— Steve & Margie Chapman, Realtors - July 2011, South Surrey, BC
"Thank you so much for this past Saturday. We all had so much fun going on the tour and enjoying our picnic lunch. The food was fresh and you had such great variety. You both were very professional and prompt with communication and answering any questions we had prior to the tour and during. We thought the tour schedule was prefect and we all really enjoyed the actual tour at Domaine De Chaberton. The price was also right! Daina is coming back next summer and we are already talking about going next year,so look for my email.
Thanks again, Daina's Retirement going away party!"

“I had a wonderful day today, great wine, great company, great tour. Don’t change a thing! Good job Dan & Lisa!”
— Ruthanne Grone, BCIT Staff - September 2011, Maple Ridge, BC
“We had the pleasure of entertaining our out-of-town guests by taking ourselves and our guests on Dan’s Signature Local Wine Tour. We all had a great time, sampled some good wines, enjoyed a delicious lunch prepared by Dan’s wife Lisa and saw a lot of the countryside at the same time. This is a no pressure tour that is narrated by Dan and he gave us lots of interesting tidbits about what we were seeing and the proprietors we would be meeting. No worries, no hassles, no driving, no specific time frame just a lot of good fun and I would do it again at the drop of a hat”.
— Gary & Cheryl Sheridan - August 2011, Surrey, BC
"What a treat to be driven around to 5 wonderful wineries in the Langley/South Surrey, Delta area. A broad range of wines from a delightful Blueberry wine to the finest Riesling I've ever tasted. A fun day with a delightful host. Dan is witty and makes sure you are well taken care of. Lisa prepared a lunch beyond what we'd expected - delicious. We'll be back next year with our friends."
— Arlene & Greg Lewis - August 2011, Coquitlam, BC
"Dan, the wine man, is an inveterate professional and his tour company reflects this professionalism in all aspects. His #1 concern is customer comfort and for this he constantly observes and asks questions to make sure we are getting the most out of the tour. Dan has chosen the wineries well to make sure there are selections for the most discerning tastes. The wineries vary from award winning and VQA producers producing wines from local white grapes to complex reds using interior grapes. This coupled with an tasty picnic style light lunch tops off the experience. I highly recommend, South Surrey Shuttle and Tours, and will definitely be back. What a great opportunity brag about Fraser Valley treasures to out of town guests."
— Christine Pollack, Entrepeneur - August 2011, Surrey, BC
"With some friends we took the wine tour in the lower mainland, we spent an excellent day and would recommend this tour to anyone.
Our host and driver Dan, was very professional and kept up great pace so we had time to visit each winery. The luncheon was delightful and had great presentation and would like to give a special thanks to Lisa. There was plenty of food for everyone and she took in to consideration all allergies and special tastes.
Thank you so much."
— Ron and Gail Konings, Retirees - June 2010, Surrey, BC
"Our day with South Fraser Wine Tours could not have been any better if we'd have personally orchestrated it! Four of us women enjoyed the camaraderie of Dan our fantastic shuttle driver/tour director/comedian as he explained the who's. what's and where's of the wineries, the local colour and the local scenery...how fun and funny! All the wineries were great, in particular Township 7 & and Domaine de Chaberton...loved them! The lunch spread was to die for, a perfect accompaniment to (yet another!) glass of wine. It was a magical day not to be forgotten any time soon...thanks guys! We'll spread the word!"
— Sandra Craig, Realtor - July 2011, Coquitlam, BC
“What a great wine tour! This was perfect! Great lunch, wonderful driver, lots of fun!
— Winifred Buschner, Realtor - July 2011, Coquitlam, BC
"Wow … and … yummy! That was the overall feeling at the end of our group’s wine tour with Dan & Lisa Goy as our hosts, driver and caterers. There were 14 of us participating from our business networking group, including our spouses and friends. We visited 5 wineries ranging from Wellbrook Winery in Delta, specializing fruit and berry wines to River’s Bend Winery in Surrey, featuring a range of wine from the vine, and to Blackwood Lane Winery in Langley, where I sampled wine worth $100 a bottle. The 5 wineries were each unique, and representing a cross-section of wineries on the south side of the Fraser River. The tour kept us involved from before 11am until after 5pm, making it a very full and happy day. The sun was shining and our smiles were wide all day! What a way to sample a variety of wines from across a region! And, we didn’t have to worry about driving … we just enjoyed ourselves! After visiting 2 of the wineries in the morning and early afternoon, Lisa Goy met us at Township 7 Vineyard and catered a gourmet picnic lunch that was absolutely delicious. And of course, we enjoyed some wine from the vineyard with our lunch. We sat at picnic benches amongst the vines listening to some live music and perusing a small local produce market being held there that same day. What an idyllic setting for a gathering of Wine Lovers!
Everyone enjoyed themselves and I would give this a “2 thumbs up”, and recommend anyone to consider organizing a Wine Tour with Dan & Lisa or join in one of their regular scheduled tours they have available. Thank you, Dan & Lisa!"
— Gary Gallant, Cruise & Travel Counsellor - July 2011, Surrey, BC
Dan and Lisa,
Thank you again for a lovely day, it was a pleasure working with you and I know the ladies on my staff had a fabulous time. We lucked out with the weather too!! I am sure you will get more business as your tour is already on Facebook with recommendations!
Thanks again and looking forward to using your services in the future, Miriam Campagne

"This was a wonderful experience! A great day in the country tasting these terrific local wines. The lunch was fabulous and Dan was an excellent tour guide who really made the difference for me. Thank you South Fraser Shuttles & Tours for a day I will always remember!"
— Sylvia Clarke, Retired - August 2011, Surrey, BC
"I'd like to thank you for the wonderful wine tour. It was well worth the price of admission. The wine was great, the people were great and an awesome time was had. I found the pace of the tour and the time at each winery to be a good mix. The wineries took good care of us and so did Dan & Lisa. Lunch was superb and really went with the touring aspect of the day.
I would highly recommend South Fraser Shuttles & Tours Wine Tour and would recommend them for any tours or transport need."
— Randall Orser, Accountant - July 2011, Surrey, BC
"The wine tasting tour was so enjoyable. It was a wonderful way to spend a beautiful summer day. The drive through the country was so relaxing and the wineries were all in very scenic locations. The wine tasting was fun as was browsing in the gift shops of the wineries. The delicious lunch that was provided by Dan and Lisa and served outside at the Township 7 Vinyard was excellent and very nicely presented. Dan was very courteous, fun and interesting."
— Evelyn Koleszar - August 2011, Delta, BC
"I really enjoyed the wine tour, the wineries were so enjoyable and friendly people showing us there wines. The lunch was filled with great food and nice and light for a great break. It was a pleasant way to spend Wednesday and really liked how organized everything was."
— Susan Roberts-July 2011, Burnaby, BC
We gathered up some friends and family and took a Wine Tour offered by South Fraser Tours, we were not sure what to expect, however the reviews and testimonials were all positive. We are pleased to report we had an amazing experience, good wine and wonderful selection of local wineries, Dan was a great tour guide and driver and fantastic lunch by Lisa! We highly recommend South Fraser Wine Tours and Dan & Lisa for their personal approach, well planned itinerary and exceptional service. Really quite remarkable! This was one of our highlights for the summer.
Thank you Dan & Lisa
— Barb & Ron Star -July 2012, Langley, BC
"I have taken many wine tours while traveling but living in Richmond, was not sure about taking a tour in my own backyard. I was pleasantly surprised. Dan managed to get us to more wineries in one day than I could possibly do by myself. Because he is know by the wineries we were treated well and tasted a lot of good wine and learned some about some great wines. The lunch provided by the tour was excellent and made it a perfect day."
— Sheldon Nider, Retired-July 2011, Richmond, BC
Dan and South Fraser Shuttles & Tours made my 40th Birthday party by picking up and safely dropping home our guests. Dan was prompt and friendly and made organizing the party care free and the evening run smoothly! We would highly recommend their services for your party or event!
— Sergei & Simone Fox, Landscapers - July 2012, Vancouver, BC

— Lorraine Bainbridge - August 2011, Burnaby, BC
"I honestly had no idea that Metro-Vancouver had so many Wineries. South Fraser's Wine Tour was a real pleasure, the staff were courteous, considerate and very knowledgeable. The catered lunch exceeded my expectations. This was a really fun day that included good service worth every penny and more!"
— Susan Match, September 2011, Richmond, BC
"I really enjoyed the Wine Tour. The mood you created from the beginning was fun, informative and relaxed.
I loved the progression of the wineries from fruit wines, to wines with no chemicals. Each winery had something special to share about their establishment, and I found that extremely interesting. I loved the tour at Domaine and learned a lot about wine tasting. I loved the picnic at Township 7, sitting next to the vineyard, enjoying a lovely day with friends, wine and good food! I loved Blackwood Lane and their delicious wines with no chemicals....really a highlight and I thoroughly enjoyed tasting blueberry wine and juice at Wellbrook, and especially the ambiance there. Thank you, Dan and Lisa....a very pleasurable day and I will certainly recommend your tour to friends and family!"
— Wendy Sidwell - August 2011, Coquitlam, BC
"Was an amazing tour...had way too much fun and just a bit to much wine...but loved the group..."
— Lynne Robson, Web Designer - June 2011, White Rock, BC
I had such a wonderful time on the booze bus and one day the air conditioner will feel just right for everyone. I was very comfortable throughout the tour! Having traveled on school buses for nearly 40 years, this was way upscale. All that and a bag of chips as we say. Thanks, again, for a splendid day! Even without stopping for wine, just driving around was fun. I must get out more often.
P.S. I accidentally washed my name tag sticker on my blouse; the wine stains came out but the sticker stayed on. I shall save it for next time!
— Darien Cope, Retired Teacher - July 2012, South Delta, BC
"Hi, just would like to say it was better than I expected! There was a full van (comfortable) and met so many nice people, farthest was from India and the rest locals. Our host Dan was friendly and efficient. The lunch was great outside, which I love. Great way to show visitors around also. Thanks for the fun!!!"
— Maureen Temple - July 2011, South Surrey, BC
Went on the tour with a group of ladies for a bachelorette. It was a refreshing, convenient way to experience multiple wineries! A stress free day of samples, tours & good times with friends. Dan was a great guide & lunch was delicious! "
— Karitas Townsend - May 2013, South Surrey, BC

South Fraser Shuttles & Tours took us an excellent wine tour! The van was comfortable and Dan is a very cautious driver! He kept us well watered and nurtured! He timed all the stops perfectly and we arrived at Township 7 for lunch right on time! Lisa put on an amazing lunch, and the atmosphere of sitting outside and taking in the scenery was fabulous! I loved how casual and laid back everything was and they did not rush us to get to the other destination. Dan made us feel right at home at all the wineries and also gave us his input on his favorites! Thank you Dan and Lisa for the amazing day! I would love to do this again sometime!
Everyone had an awesome time! Thanks for everything!
— Kim Duke-September 2012, Abbotsford, BC
"Who knew we had these great wineries south of the Fraser River? The wine tour was the perfect length, I enjoyed every winery we visited and the lunch was delicious! Dan & Lisa - job well done!"
— Heather Weis, Retired - August 2011, Surrey, BC
“What a wine tour! I never expected so many wonderful wineries right in my own backyard. South Fraser Shuttle & Tours selection of wineries was perfect, very different all very friendly. The drive was incredibly scenic, the driver safe, informative and helpful and the lunch outstanding. A perfect day all around!”
— Kirsty Lamont, CHCA - June 2010, Surrey, BC
"We participated in a local wine tour conducted by South Fraser Shuttles and Tours. Dan Goy was an outstanding host. Dan had the day well planned and organized. He made it fun by having full control of every move along the way. The selection of the five wineries was terrific, all different in their own way. It was obvious that Dan is well appreciated at the wineries by the way each of their hosts received us. As we arrived on the beautiful grounds of a vineyard, Lisa Goy capped the day by being ready for us with an incredible lunch set on tables. If we weren’t already, we left the full day’s event as friends with those we shared the wonderful day with."
— George & Monica Greenwood - July 2011, Langley, BC
"The South Fraser Wine Tasting Tour is a must for anyone who is a wine drinker living in Metro Vancouver.
I’d been to Okanogan and Napa Valleys, but so far had snobbishly ignored our local wineries until spotting this Lower Mainland wine tour. I thought time to venture out and explore, and so very pleased I did. Dan’s tour provides an excellent eclectic mix, from the impressive Domaine de Chaberton and their wonderful Zagat rated bistro, to the down-home blueberry wines of Wellbrook’s 55 heritage acre farm or Township Seven’s delightful 7 Blanc flagship mix of Gewurtztraminer, Muscat and Pinot Gris grapes wines. And, who knew Langley is home to a boutique winery run by Peruvian Carlos Lee that's creating a big buzz for their high caliber red wines and has garnered a 96 score from enthusiast John Schreiner for their Bordeaux called Referènce 2007.
Dan takes good care of his guests and is eternally vigilant to ensure everyone has a good time. On this tour, you can enjoy tasting without any worry of impaired charges, you secure the benefit of 10% discount at several of the vineyards, and obtain more sampling and information as a group than if you just arrived on your own. When my friend I booked, we weren’t quite sure what quite to expect, but we had an excellent time, came home much better informed as to our local wine scene, and secured several bottles of good local wine to add to our cellar. A treat! '
— Rebekka Harvey - August 2011, Vancouver, BC
"Just wanted to drop you a note and thank you both for an absolutely wonderful day touring local wineries. When my husband suggested to take me on a wine tour for Mother’s Day I was a little bit skeptical as I was not a big fan of BC Wines. However, I decided to step out of my box and venture out to try our local wines. We invited several friends and my own Mother and sister to join us in a group of 10. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I thoroughly enjoyed your choice of wineries that we toured and purchased several bottles of wine that I had sampled and enjoyed. I have to say that the lunch that was provided at our 3rd stop was amazing and over the top, I cannot rant and rave enough about the wonderful job that Lisa did in the presentation and food choices that everyone enjoyed immensely and the attention that she gave to my dietary requirements, that was also a pleasant surprise. Not to take anything away from you Dan as you were very attentive and a wonderful host, your knowledge of the areas and wineries made our day that much more special. Myself and the girls have already plans in the works for one of your pub tours and another wine tour before the fall.
Once again, thank you both for making our Mother’s Day a very very special one to remember for many years."
— Brenda & Jacque Percival, family and friends - May 2012, Surrey, BC
Wow what a fantastic day. Dan was a great driver/host, the ride was very comfortable and the time between wineries was very quick. Lisa made an amazing picnic lunch for us which we enjoyed at the Township 7 winery. Now let’s not forget about the actual winery's. We visited 5 local places and tasted a wide variety of delicious wines. The tour we received at Domaine de Chaberton Estate Winery was interesting & informative. We are trying to get the gang together to do it again soon. Paul & Gloria, Surrey
— Paul & Gloria Clarke-August 2011, Surrey, BC
“What a pleasant surprise to find such unique and diverse wineries locally, in our own backyard. I liked all the wineries, the drive and driver were excellent and the lunch was hard to beat. Thank you South Fraser Tours for a great day!”
— Jackie Allan - August 2011, South Surrey, BC
“I just wanted to touch base with you to let you know what a great time we all had during the wine tour. The pace of the tour was perfect, the sequencing was flawless and the catered meal provided by your lovely wife was marvelous. I am back in Kandahar now and the tour is one of my favourite memories of my time back in Canada. It was a great event that we were all able to enjoy together as a family. Margo brought a bottle of Port and a bottle of wine back to CFB Petawawa with her and we will share it when I get back to Canada in December.”
