We work hard to develop strong relationships with Kelowna wineries and breweries, in addition to Kelowna hotels and restaurants, Tourism Kelowna and other tourism and government agencies, and other industry partners. We are humbled by - and committed to - those area partners who provide our guests with VIP service and unique, behind-the-scenes experiences not offered to walk-in guests or other tour operators.
Wicked Tour Guides are carefully screened, selected, and undergo extensive internal training. Our Tour Guides are also encouraged to pursue a Level 2 Award in Wines & Spirits from the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET®). Team members regularly attend industry events, conferences, and training opportunities.
Nick has spent his entire career in hospitality, from bussing tables as a teenager, to managing luxury hotels and spas around the world. Nurturing an entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for British Columbia wine, he ditched the suit and launched Wicked Wine Tours in 2014, and Wicked Weed Tours in 2018. Nick is a rocker, entrepreneur, passionate partner to Cindy, loving 'Knuckles' to three munchkins, and unquestionable wino.
Charming, alluring, and highly sociable, Cindy escaped the lower mainland of Vancouver for the paradise of Kelowna and the Okanagan Valley, and has brought her love of British Columbia wine to Wicked Wine Tours. She is a Queen of cakes, an amazing mother to three munchkins, loving partner to Nick, and unabashed Guitar Hero diva.
