About Distinctly Kelowna Tours
Distinctly Kelowna Tours is one of Kelowna’s and the Okanagan Valley’s leading tourism businesses.

Distinctly Kelowna Tours opened its doors in 2003, soon to be followed by the infamous Okanagan Mountain Park wildfire which stopped tourism in its wake. Despite the tragic circumstances, the company persevered and continued to grow, expanding the tour offerings and our fleet of vehicles. Today, we offer Okanagan and Kelowna wine tours, sightseeing tours, adventure tours, and more. We are proud to be trusted industry leaders, offering Okanagan and Kelowna wine tours, sightseeing tours, adventure tours, and custom tours throughout the Okanagan Valley.
