I was in charge of my cousin's 50th birthday celebration and she mentioned going on a wine tour. We had the best time! Dennis was very friendly and really made this celebration memorable. The bus was very clean and bottled water is available. My sister-in-law wants me to plan her birthday next and wants to go on another tour! We... 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!

We visited Galena on a weekday and was so happy to find a weekday wine tour. We were picked up at our hotel in Galena by Dennis who was very friendly! The tour bus was very clean and comfortable and Dennis had bottled water available. Our tour included my husband and I as well as 6 other people who we... More

Great experience! Wonderful time! The bus is brand new and very nice. My sisters, my mother and myself had a great time seeing the beautiful scenery. The wine was delicious!

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
