What You'll Get
Famed Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon was forced to forgo his quest for the mythical land of wine after an accidental tumble into the fountain of youth left him eternally underage. Take up his abandoned journey with today’s Groupon: for $75, you get a Wine Country Safari from ITT Wilson’s Tours (a $155.68 value, including HST).
ITT Wilson’s Tours leads age-appropriate sightseers on personalized tours of the Cowichan area, tailoring each tour for four or more passengers to match their interests, budget, and plaid smoking jackets. The Wine Country Safari makes sip-worthy stops at two or three different wineries (depending on the day and group) and a cider mill based on availability. Along the tour, guests receive artisan snacks such as local breads, cheeses, chocolates, and freshly stomped water to stoke palates and help sop up the core-warming quaffs. The staff of friendly tour guides is comprised of local experts whose noggins are crammed with information and insights about the region. Like rubber pants, pickup locations are flexible and can be arranged at the time of booking.

About ITT Wilson's Tours
Colleen Barrow has spent her entire lifetime seeking out and memorizing the coordinates of the most scenic sights dotting British Columbia's Southern Gulf Islands. Rather than trapping them in a photo album or enormous snow globe, the local explorer shares her finds with guests through ITT Wilson's Tours. By partnering with Wilson's Transportation, Barrow coordinates luxury bus tours to castles, lighthouses, botanical gardens, and wineries. With many of the tours, guests receive a midday meal such as rustic oven pizza served at an apple-orchard picnic site, or mutton legs aged to perfection in a castle's meat cellars.
