We will visit several areas of the Niagara peninsula, which was a key frontier during the War of 1812. Sites will include Fort George, Queenston Heights, Beaverdams, the Decew site (terminal point of Laura Secord's amazing trek), Niagara-on-the-Lake, the Welland canal. We will stop at 2-4 local wineries and/or craft breweries, and there will be a lunch stop or picnic (weather permitting). You will get a magnificent perspective on the incredible variety of sites and activities in the Niagara region and get the chance to sample some fabulous wines.
Be aware that some COVID restrictions are still in effect, so patience and flexibility will be an asset.

LEGAL STUFF: Tour is open to all persons aged 12+, but keep in mind that any consumption/sampling of alcohol is limited to those of legal age in Ontario (19+).

Retired teacher (History/Philosophy/Geog.), well-travelled, wine enthusiast. I have organized/led tours in Canada and several European countries; I love sharing experiences, and the Niagara area offers a multitude of possibilities for History, wine, food, hiking. I am an avid History buff, and the Niagara Peninsula was an important focal point during the War of 1812.
Ancien prof. d'histoire, passioné d'histoire militaire et amateur/gourmand du vin, j'adore partager mes expériences et tout ce que la région de Niagara vous offre, en histoire, vignobles, randonnées, nature. Cette région a joué un role important durant la Guerre de 1812, et je suis fier de partager cet héritage historique et de merveilleux vignobles.
La visite peut être faite entièrement en français, si vous désirez.

I would recommend having Dan as a tour guide to anyone. The knowledge he possesses and his willingness to share it, made this experience very enjoyable! The combination of history and wine makes for a great day!

Dan was a wonderful host. He took time ahead of the tour to understand our specific areas of interest, and accommodated these within the tour itinery. Dan's passion and international experience in both history and winemaking is incredible. He personalises the tour experience for his guests through the day. We learned a great deal through this very insightful and unique tour. Dan is also a great guy, very thoughtful and easy to talk to. We felt like we'd known him for a long time. We’d highly recommend this tour to anyone who likes the best wines, in-depth history and great conversation.

Quelle belle journée nous avons passée avec Dan! Une personne pleine de connaissance, de culture et d’expérience de vie. Toujours des anecdotes pertinentes et intéressante à insérer. Notre visite guidée était de loin au dessus de nos attentes- Dan est généreux de sa personne et passionné de ce qu’il fait. Une vraie perle!

Dan is one of those rare guides that you wouod love to find but seldom encounter. His incredible teaching experience and his Master of Arts in history, coupled with his enthusiasm and kindness, makes him an incredible guide. We learned things about the region that we somehow never discovered on our own, despite having toured the region multiple times. Dan is a lovely human to boot. He is very easy to talk to, and impressively proactive in calling ahead, making arrangements, and adapting on the fly. The cherry on top: Dan is a wine conoseur who works at a wonderful winery. It doesnt get any better then this.

Dan was a wonderful host. My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our day of touring the Niagara Region with him. It’s obvious that he has a passion for both history and wine and that made for a very insightful, stimulating tour. We learned a great deal throughout the day and Dan’s really good at keeping the conversation flowing naturally. It felt like we’d known him forever despite having just met. We’d highly recommend this tour to anyone who likes wine, history or just good conversation and learning all sorts of new things. This tour was the highlight of our trip!
