Partner Spotlights are our way to shine a light on some of our amazing local partners across the country and give them a platform to tell their unique story. Cameron Colin, Managing Partner Wine Tours, with Discover Okanagan Tours wants to share his!
Tell us about your business:
Our demographic is very widespread. We cater to everyone over the age of 19 who wishes to Discover the Okanagan. We offer both half-day and full-day tours for wine, and full-day tours for Breweries, cideries, and Distilleries.
What is the one thing you would like people to know about your business?
We are one of the longest-running wine tour companies in the valley, established in 1999. We also provide the best value, with rates up to 30% lower than our competition, with zero compromises on quality. For each of our tour formats, we put guest experience above anything else. The day we spend on the road with our guests is all about them and their experience.
What made you want to get into business here?
I joined the company 3 years ago in my role. I have a strong sales and service industry background and I saw a bit of a disconnect in what was being offered by some other companies where they were just looking to churn out as many guests as possible. We pride ourselves in providing the best customer service experience.
What’s your favourite part about owning or managing the business?
It’s the people that we get to meet and knowing that we were a part of their experience within the Okanagan! We mainly cater to tourists, so for a lot of our guests, it is the first time they have been here.
Is there a community cause or event that you support that you would like to give a shoutout to?
Not one in particular at this time, but it is in the works for the spring. We have supported different local charities in the past. We will be having a discussion about selecting one charity to support every year!

When you’re not working/running your business what is your favourite thing to do?
