COVID-19 has impacted the tourism industry significantly.
Ogopogo Tours has made the difficult decision that we will not provide tours or transportation services until BC's Restart plan has reached Phase 4.
This is for a number of reasons:
1. We will not be able to offer the kind of service that we set out to provide.
2. To protect our guests and staff. Note: Ogopogo Tours primary operator is high risk and lives with a family member who is also high risk.
3. To reduce the spread of COVID-19.

In light of the new normal, we are reducing our fleet size. Our fleet is proactively maintained and detailed after each use.

Please contact us if you have any questions or are interested in our vehicles.

Available vehicles for sale can be seen here.

"Ogopogo Tours have gone above and beyond to provide an exceptional accessible tourism product in the South Okanagan area. Through research, education and with two enormous passionate hearts, Darren and Adonica Sweet now offer wine tours and shuttle services to people of ALL abilities with their wheelchair accessible vehicle! As a wheelchair user myself, I can't tell you what it means to know that I can be included and that I am able to participate in experiences alongside family and friends, something that many people take for granted. No one likes to be left behind, and now with this new tourism service, travellers of any size, shape and ability, from both near and fear, are sure to be included in many of the products and experiences that are abundant in the Okanagan Region."
