We had a great day on our insiders tour with John. He got us into places we wouldn't have found on our own which was amazing, and we learned a lot about the area along the way. Hope to return and would definitely tour with John again!

Our group of six booked this wine tour after a local recommendation and a lot of research and we were not disappointed! James was absolutely wonderful! His knowledge of the area and the history of winemaking in Oregon was beyond impressive. James tailored our tour based on our group's wine preferences and the type of wineries that we wanted to...

Our little group from Texas spent the most wonderful day with David touring 4 wineries. David was considerate of our wants, informative, knowledgeable, charming and kind. He anticipated our needs, always made sure we had water and effortlessly managed things for the group as a whole. David really knows the area and was able to make recommendations for dinner and...

Great guide, great tour, great wineries and great day! My wife and I spent the day with John touring local wineries and had an incredible time. We asked for smaller production wineries where we could meet the owner or winer maker and he nailed both! Our first stop went so well (and long in a great way) it turned into... More

Our family (my wife, two daughters and son-in-law) booked the Insiders Wine Tour after a fair amount of research and reading reviews. We know enough about wine to know we don't know that much. James was our tour leader. He arrived on time and ready to go. He quickly figured out we were rookies but determined what he thought we... More

What an incredible day with James! This was our first experience with a wine tour and tastings; and our expectations were exceeded on every level. James taught us all about the different grapes grown in the area and then proceeded to take us to four very unique wineries in the region (all based upon our interests and wine tastes). Each...

Had a great time yesterday with John from Insiders Wine Tours in Willamette Valley. We went to 5 great wineries both big and small. He had great insight and was fun to talk to. We highly recommend them. He was very knowledgable and had great relationships with the wineries.

Spent a long weekend in wine country with friends, and we were lucky enough to have James as our tour guide. He took us to great wineries while providing a wealth of wine expertise and local knowledge. We also enjoyed the tasting room at his wine shop, NW Food & Gifts. Highly recommend!

We thoroughly enjoyed our day with John and experienced so much through his extensive knowledge of the region. We arranged our tour at the last moment and so grateful John was able to be our guide. We had never been in the area and asked John to choose the wineries/plan the day. It was perfect! We visited some very special... More
