FAQ

Q:  HOW ARE RESERVATIONS CONFIRMED?

Reservations are confirmed via email.  Your reservation is valid only after you receive a confirmation email from Sagebrush Tours.

 

Q:  DO WE OFFER PRIVATE TOURS?

Yes!  Private tours are available for Nature and Wine Tours.  They are ideal for special occasions, corporate events, groups, families or those who are looking for a more intimate and exclusive experience.  We offer private tours to groups with a minimum of 4 guests. If your group is less than 4, you can still book a private tour provided you pay for a minimum of 4 seats.

 

Q: WHAT HAPPENS ON A NATURE TOUR?

You will visit natural places that are incredibly beautiful yet largely undiscovered by travelers and locals.  It is about the journey, not the destination. No one will be left behind on the trail because we involve and care about every person.  You become fully aware of a place and fully immersed in your surroundings. With our guidance, you’ll be able to see with new awareness and heightened senses, things that few people see or get to experience.  

 

Q:  ARE NATURE TOURS FOR FAMILIES TOO?

Yes!  Our nature tours are very special for families.  Very few family-friendly activities are available locally and being in Nature is so beneficial for families.  Mom and Dad, as well as the kids, can finally slow down, calm down, and enjoy the moment.

 

Q: WHAT HAPPENS ON A WINE TOUR?

Tours are meant for the novice to the ardent wine lover.  Each tour is uniquely crafted to the participants, so, addressing your individual questions and satisfying your personal expectations is our one and only goal. We promise to create a welcoming, understanding, and rewarding atmosphere no matter your experience level.  

 

Q:  CAN SENIORS AND PEOPLE WITH MOBILITY ISSUES TAKE PART IN NATURE TOURS?

Yes!  Our nature tours feature walks and hikes that are low impact and easy to moderate in difficulty. We spend a lot of time on our tours observing and actively connecting with nature, so there’s time to catch your breath, relax, and enjoy your surroundings!

 

Q: CAN SMALL CHILDREN TAKE PART IN NATURE TOURS?

A: Yes!  Our nature tours are ideal for children.  Children have a thirst for exploring and reveling in nature.  We just facilitate their innate passion for the natural world and provide a safe and encouraging environment of discovery.  Parents with young children unable to walk very far must provide a child carrier.

 

Q: ARE TASTING FEES INCLUDED?

Yes, all our tour prices include tasting fees, venue fees, chilled bottled water, sparkling water, and snacks. The only expenses not included in our tour prices are your lunch and gratuities.

 

Q: WHAT KIND OF WILDLIFE WILL I SEE ON THE TOUR?

While we can’t promise anything, (wildlife come and go as they please) we can expect to see a diverse range of species on our tours. The Okanagan is, in fact, one of the most species-rich and biodiverse regions in Canada. Regular seasonal observations include Mountain Goat, California Bighorn Sheep, Trumpeter Swan, Peregrine Falcon, Yuma Bat, Osprey, Turkey Vulture, and more.  

 

Q: WHAT SHOULD I BRING WITH ME ON A NATURE TOUR?

Please wear proper hiking apparel, good walking shoes (closed toed shoes or hiking boots recommended). You’ll also need 1-2 liters of water, UV protection: sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, and binoculars.

 

Q: CAN I BRING MY DOG ON A TOUR?

Unfortunately, we cannot allow pets on our tours out of respect for all our guests, due to liability reasons and government regulations. However, we can suggest a dog daycare. There are a number of great boarding kennels in the Kelowna region including Kelowna Pet Resort and Bark n” Fly Dog Daycare and Boarding. Thank you for your understanding.
