I don't know why my review was deleted. This could be a nice tour, but poor planning and deceptive practices ruin the tour. As other have said, John ignores numerous customers when they ask him why lunch is stated as included, when soon after getting on the bus, they're asked for additional payment for a lunch. The lunch is delivered... More

Our group of 7 had a wonderful time, in spite of the tour guide and his deceptive practices. Lunch was clearly advertised as included in the price. However when the about 40 guests gathered to board the bus, John, the guide/owner announced that money for lunch would be collected on the bus. Apparently he owns a restaurant and hauls boxed...

I enjoyed being with my two daughters for the day. We could relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery with no need to worry about driving. I was disappointed that one of the wineries was changed to different one; lunch was not at the advertised venue; lunch was not provided as part of the package, as advertised, and as was confirmed...

Did this tour with a friend (and four other ladies we didn't know) and we had so much fun! John was a great tour guide. His love of the wine and the area was just contagious! He had so much knowledge to share. We visited 4 wineries and stopped at the Old Stage Grill for lunch (which John owns too!).... More

This company did an outstanding job with our tour from customizing it to fit our schedule and preferences, to dropping us off at our hotel. Jonathan was a great tour guide, photographer and driver and Brittany was amazing with the set up. We had so much fun! I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to tour the wineries.

We visit the Yadkin Valley wineries on our own and love them all. There are 5 on one exit of US 421 so they are easy to get to.

Four of us (two couples) arranged a Saturday custom wine tour with Yadkin Valley Wine Tours, and we couldn't have been more pleased. First, we had a splendid spring day for the tour (it is always best when Mother Nature cooperates). The tour included four wineries, along with a light lunch consisting of sandwiches made to order at an Amish... More

Extremely disappointed with this tour. The tour is marketed as all inclusive, and the website promises that all wine tastings and lunch are included. We got to the first winery and John told us nothing is included. I told him my concerns and showed him the verbiage on the website that promised all inclusive. He saw it and basically said,... More
