We love Cloud Climbers! I have been on the tour 4 or 5 times, but this time was different. I decided to bring a bachelorette party. There were 10 of us and we had two jeeps, despite the cooler rainy weather we had an absolutely wonderful time! Our guides Greg & Scott were fantastic, as you can imagine watching over... More

My daughter & I had a fabulous & fun tour with Joseph as our guide. We toured with 4 others that we didn't know, but thoroughly enjoyed their company. We could request where we'd like to go so I suggest doing a bit of research to give them some idea of what you'd like to do - they are very... More

It was an amazing experience... Our driver, Tyson, picked us up on time from our hotel and entertained us the whole day. He selected great wineries (based on our taste) and the lunch provided was great as well (especially the salad). He even introduced us to the owner of one of the wineries who was serving us wine herself, very... More
