My two girlfriends and I went on the Black Hawk Tour with Dennis last Friday. We haven't had that much fun in a long time. We went to three different wineries, Galena Cellars, Rocky Waters, and Massbach Ridge, and we sampled some fantastic wines. We had lunch at Procento`s Pizzeria, which was delicious! And Dennis even bought us cupcakes at... More

My husband and I went on the Blackhawk wine tour. We got to taste wine at 3 different vineyards and had pizza for lunch. It was a fun afternoon! Dennis was a great tour guide!

Enjoyed the pub cruise, particularly a couple of dive bars we wouldn't have found on our own (and wouldn't have found our way home from, if we had...). If you can offer some tips to your party's taste when booking the tour, it's probably helpful to the driver--ours recovered admirably when discovering that these ladies on a girl's weekend had...

I have visited some of the Galena wineries previously , this is the first time we used Iowa Wine Tours. Had a great time drivers were friendly and patient. The lunch provided was from Fried Green Tomatoes, one of Galena's best restaurants. They served plenty of food and everything was still hot ( food was delivered to first winery). The... More

We have done 2 tours with Dennis over the years and he is truly a pleasure. I was recently at a Hawkeye game and he recognized us before I did him. On our first tour we just went with one of his advertised tours with other people we didn't know. Our second tour we worked with him to put together... More

We signed up for a wine tour for my bachelorette party, starting out in Galena, IL. Not only was it not just my group, which we were under the understanding that it'd just be us 5, but it was not a wine tour, either. It turned into a pub crawl with a small bus to take us around. I didn't... More

Iowa Wine Tours is a true gem of a tour! From the beginning, Dennis was wonderful to deal with. We were able to book a tour for 7 girls on a Friday in September. Two other ladies were on the tour and we all had a great time. Dennis picked us up at our rental house and entertained us the... More

I am disappointed to have to rate my experience with Iowa Wine Tours so poorly, but due to my recent experience, I feel I need to leave this review to give others warning. I do want to begin by saying I had a positive experience with Iowa Wine Tours about 3 years back when I booked a tour for approximately... More

My friends and I recently took a trip to Galena and on a friends recommendation we booked a wine tour with Iowa Wine Tours. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.
