We were picked up in a beautiful new van that was clearly marked and with clean, comfortable seats. Water bottles were provided to assist with keeping us hydrated between stops. We visited four wineries with lunch in the middle of the day. Our tour guide, Steph, was great at breaking the ice with our fellow passengers. She had both a... More

My mom and I booked a tour with Experience! The Finger Lakes when we visited the area several years ago (summer, 2013). We enjoyed it so much that I made a point of booking with them again this past summer. Our first tour was "Vine, Wine and Dine" on Seneca lake, so I went with a Cayuga tour this time... More

We had originally scheduled a half-day wine-only tour. Due to booking issues, we ended up switching to the all-day SWaB tour, which turned out to be a really great choice. This all-day tour (11 - 6) took us to one distillery, one winery, and one brewery, with lunch thrown in along the way. Everything was along about a 2 mile... More

Wow, Tony! Thanks for the incredibly detailed review! Maybe a second career in travel writing?! You nailed the essense of the SWaB tour perfectly, especially our relaxing vibe at the end at Two Goats. And yes, our Tour Coordinator, Carolyn, with whom you spoke, is the best! She definitely works her magic to make sure all our guests are accommodated... More

Excellent wine tour to four high quality wineries at Seneca lake. Our fun tour guide Liz provided a lot of background information and was amazingly attentive to everybody. Really enjoyed the different wineries, all of which in their own way make outstanding signature wines. Will definitively try to buy from them back home. The tour bus is very clean, snacks... More

This tour by far exceeded all expectations. For start to finish. From the friendliest tour guide to the nicest workers at the wineries. The scenery was an added bonus.

Great tour.Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area. The wine tasting was a lot of fun. The distillery owner could have been more friendly.
