MyGo Distillery Tours FAQs

MyGo has 2 buses. One is a 14 seater and the other is an 18 seater. All seats face forward. We cater to groups only. We do not pick up other people or groups that will join your group (unless they are part of your group). Buses are not wheelchair accessible.
Please see our pricing page on this website for all pricing matters including deposits, additional costs if any, and our refund policy.
We are a door to door service. Your tour group is met by our bus at your choice of location. We return you to that location choice later in the day (other options may be available for drop off). The primary service area for MyGo is the Cowichan Valley. We also venture out to Nanaimo and Parksville. We do make numerous trips to Westshore and Victoria. Other pick up locations originate from Chemainus, Ladysmith, and Lake Cowichan. Note: Distillery/wine/brew tours are not available on Sundays from Victoria due to traffic conditions on the return trip.
For the most part we visit 3 distilleries and one lunch location. Pick up is usually around 10am-10:30am depending on your location. Return time is 5:30-6pm depending on your location. Our tours are full day tours. We do not provide short half day tours. You can substitute or add wineries and brew pubs to your distillery tour at no additional cost.
There are three distilleries in the Cowichan Valley. You can choose to visit all three or just one or two. You can add to your tour a wine or brew pub and you can choose the distilleries/wineries/brew pubs.
You are responsible for paying the cost of tastings at the distilleries/wineries/brew pubs and the restaurant. We know that not everyone wants to participate on the tour. It's quite common for some people in your group to NOT have the desire to taste/tour at every venue we visit. Most venues request that one person in the group pay for the whole group at their venue. This speeds up "at the counter" time for them and helps MyGo as your groups can spend less time paying the bill and more time tasting and touring.
We make all the reservations where reservations are necessary. This includes your choice of restaurant. By MyGo making the reservations we can determine the best route, save travel time, and have priority seating at the venues.
Our business model is to tour private groups on our 14 and 18 passenger buses. We charge by the busload... not per person. Thus, having small groups is usually not cost effective. If you find it is within your budget to use our service we are glad to have a group of any size. Reminder: all our groups n the bus are private groups. We do not mix and match groups. Our customers win the cost effectiveness game when they have a larger group size.
Most certainly. If you prefer a picnic lunch instead of a restaurant we can set this up. Your group will supply the lunch and beverages.
Your drivers love music. Really they do! Music on the bus happens via BlueTooth. We turn the volume up and then you control your playlist and volume with your phone (some of the songs we hear, Oh My!). Don't be afraid to turn it up and sing it loud. We like it.
Our drivers go above and beyond in their willingness to provide super excellent service. A gratuity is charged on your invoice. This gratuity is optional. If you would prefer to leave your own amount of gratuity with your driver you can do this. Please request we remove this from your invoice. Gratuity is priced at 15%. If you would like to add to the gratuity you are welcome to do this at the the end of your tour. All gratuities collected by MyGo go directly to your personal driver.
We do not check or verify identification on the bus, however we guarantee that the distilleries/wineries/brew pubs will check your ID. Please remember your ID unless you are as old as the owner of MyGo Tours (64).
Typically the tour season starts kicking into gear in late April and continues until the end of October. The busiest days are Saturdays, Sundays and Fridays in that order. We are open all week, all year. Distilleries/wineries/brewpubs may have different days and hours of operation.

MyGo Tours and Transportation has been operating on Vancouver Island since 2018. MyGo offers fun, creative wine tasting tours in the Cowichan Valley. Full day tours are the name of the game usually visiting 3-4 wineries with a lunch at a local restaurant. Brew tours are also a part of MyGo. Visit the local brew pubs and have lunch too. It's like a wine tour but only local brew.

The picturesque Cowichan Valley is the location of many destination, local venue, and backyard weddings. MyGo offers wedding shuttles to and from the wedding. MyGo also offers just late night wedding pickup to make sure all the family and guests arrive safely to their destination.

MyGo offers transportation to and from other venues such as clubbing in Victoria, parties, concerts, and other events that would require transportation. We are also set up to shuttle people to local destinations during Laketown Shakedown and Sunfest, all part of the Laketown Ranch festivities in Youbou.
