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. Dennis picked the group of us up and from the very beginning you could tell it was going to be a great time! He was very knowledgeable about... More

My friends I take a trip to Galena every year (this was our 6th year) and our first time using Iowa Wine Tours. Dennis picked the 7 of us up at our house on time. He was friendly and very informative about the area. We only did the one winery as none of us had ever done one before and... More

I would highly reccommend taking this tour. Dennis is an amazing guide. He is a walking encyclodpedia when it comes to the Galena area. The whole time while he is driving from winery to winery, he is giving fun facts about the area - he is absolutely amazing! We visited three wineries. All the wineries have the most friendly employees.... More
