We celebrated my wife's birthday by taking the 1/2 day "Wine and Waterfalls" tour. Our intrepid and knowledgeable guides, Steph and Carolyn couldn't have been nicer. The adventure began with an owner-guided tour of Ports of New York complete with discussions of the science, history and art of the making of fortified wines. It was highlighted with a taste pairing... More

From the first meeting of our tour guide to the end of the trip, Rachel was upbeat, positive, knowledgeable, and helpful, and she is one of the reasons this was such a memorable wine tour experience. At each of the three stops our group received special treatment, separate from other wine-touring groups, that varied with each winery - a facility... More

Four Cornell alumni and one husband had a great time on the Experience the Finger Lakes Tour. It was a great activity for a cold winter day. Starting at 11 am, we were driven by Chris, a charming and knowledgeable tour guide, to Standing Stone Winery along Seneca Lake. April was our enthusiatic, funny vinter. We saw the tank rooms,...

I did some research on wine tours and found Experience! The Finger Lakes Tour. I was not sure what to expect as I had never been on one even though we are in our 3rd year of a son at Ithaca College. We were greeted outside our hotel by Steph. Jumping into the van to start our trip Steph went... More

Laura and Stephanie gave it their all in introducing us to Lou Damiani and his winery and staff on Seneca Lake (first class reds), helping us blend our own Meritage wines, for which we could take a signature bottle home, followed by dinner and paring at Cultivor in Ithaca. A whole lot of fun and learning. Highly recommended.

We had a great time on our half day tour of Seneca Lake! We had Chris as our tour guide and he was so knowledgeable and friendly. They even give you water bottles to keep you hydrated :) We visited three vineyards and at each one we either talked with the owners or VERY educated staff. They always had a... More

This was my first time to Seneca Lake and my first wine tour. Chris was amazing. He was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and professional. I could not have asked for a better guide. The tour was extremely organized and we were able to meet the owners and managers of some of the vineyards to truly get a one of a kind... More

Chris our driver for the day was just A-1, he was informative, accommodating, and fun. The treatment we received at the wineries was definitely VIP all the way. If you are a couple or a group this is the guided tour to book with. 5 of us went today and all of us said we can not wait to do... More

Had a great time on the Seneca Vine Wine & Dine tour with Rachel! She was fun, energetic and gave us a wine tour atypical (a good thing!) from traditional "wine tastings". Prepare to laugh, drink and eat well on this wine tour with Rachel!
