I recently was fortunate to enjoy a wine tour with friends. We enjoyed the day going around to to the wineries on a very clean and comfortable bus. Dennis was very professional and knowledgeable about the area. We will definitely do this tour again.

We LOVED the service we received from Iowa Wine Tours so much during a girls' weekend in Galena a couple of years ago that we can't wait to let them host our night out again! Dennis picked us up right at our door! He knows all the best places and is always open to suggestion. More than just a great... More

My wife & I took the Blackhawk Wine Tour and thought it was an excellent tour, not only did we find out more about wine but we had a great experience with history and the scenery on the tour. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

We took the BlackHawk wine tour visited 3 wineries. The Galena vineyard is the only one that stood out. One vineyard was for... More

It's hard to find a company that gives you great service anymore. This company gives great customer service. The bus is spotless and the experience is unforgettable. Iowa Wine tours will be our next choice when we come back to Galena! Thank You!
