Thought the tour was nice, a bit crowded with 9 of us on the bus but it was a fun group so that was ok. As nice as the goat cheese place was, and they do have some nice cheeses, felt a little like we drove past all these nice wineries to see goats :/
Would have enjoyed maybe a private tour or more time to sit and eat something somewhere it felt rushed.
Overall it was nice.

Thank Sirnickp

Thank-you for your feedback. We are glad that you had a nice time. Please join us another time for a tour with a lunch stop. We do have our Eastside Bench Wine Tour with a lunch stop as well as the half day tour. We also have a number of tours that just visit wineries. We added Carmelis Goat Cheese Artisan to our Eastside Bench Tour as we had many requests for a wine and cheese experience. Thank-you for your review.

Great tour to very picturesque and lovely winery's. All a little different adding character and fun to the day. Our guide Richard was excellent. He didn't inundate us with information, just the right amount. Took great pictures for us and was a very good driver. Highly recommend.

We went on a wine tour. It was amazing. Particularly the driver/tour facilitator, Shirley, was great! She was informative, kind and helpful!! She ensured we had water throughout the tour and snacks. We also had lunch during the tour at a beautiful location. She really made the tour a great experience. I would definitely go again!!!!

We enjoyed the wine / beer and distillery tour. Berne, our tour guide, was friendly and knowledgable and made it a very enjoyable 4 hour tour. The 6 of us were teamed with 2 Peruvians and had a great time. Perhaps lunch or at least some sharing plates could have been included for the price - comparing this to our home wine tours.

We are glad that you enjoyed our Historic Downtown Tasting Experience Tour. The tour you experienced was a modification from our regular downtown tour; the tour is not usually 4 hours long. Your recommendation to have some sort of food offering for longer tours is a good idea; thank-you. We appreciate your review and hope that you visit us again.
