Wine Tour Companies

August 2020

  • Based on 4 people, doing a Bottleneck Drive Tour, Summerland, BC.
  • A 5-hour tour is what I based Quail Valley Personal Driver on
  • The hourly rate is the individual fee divided by the hours of the tour
  • If the tour is 6 hours long but there is one hour for lunch I divided the individual fee by 5 hours as the driver was not doing anything.
