After boarding one of Niagara Fun Tours' buses at the Niagara Falls or Niagara-on-the-Lake pick-up area, guests spend 5–6 hours exploring the frosty world of ice-wine production. The tour stops at a working chocolate factory and four award-winning wineries–Palatine Hills Estate Winery, Vignoble Rancourt Winery, Caroline Cellars Winery, Konzelmann Estate Winery– which all provide free tastings of their various reds, whites, and ice wines. There will also be a lunch stop at Harvest Barn Country Market, where guests can purchase snacks and fresh local specialties.
The winter wine-and-chocolate tour runs every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday November through April 2013.
Niagara Fun Tours
The dedicated guides of Niagara Fun Tours escort flocks of visitors around the Niagara region all year round during their guided tours. Summer and Winter wine tours visit, taste, and tour at four award winning wineries studding the Niagara Wine Belt, where settings range from mountain chalets to baroque and modern castle decor to rustic wood farmhouses. For tour-goers that prefer libations other than wine, Niagara Fun Tours offers other seasonal tours that stop at local distilleries, micro breweries, and hard cider distilleries. Guides often conclude their tours with stops at locales such as the heart of Niagara-on-the-Lake or Chocolate FX, where chocolate artisans fashion often-unconventional taste combinations using traditional panning and moulding techniques. Sightseers embark on a new Niagara Beer, Spirits and Hard Cider tour, seasonal winery tours, or private scenic torus of Niagara Falls. Participants enjoy tastings at each location, have a chance to grab some lunch at Harvest Barn Country Market, and receive a wine tasting at Rancourt Winery. Niagara Fun Tours also provides round-trip transportation from multiple locations in Niagara for each tour, loading guests into large shuttle buses that accommodate up to 48 passengers or into vehicles that accommodate up to 21 giraffes.
