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!

This was by far one of the best wine tours I've been on! Rachel was an excellent guide. She informed us about the history of the area, gave tips on what to do in the area and told us about great restaurants in the area. My family was visiting the area and this was the perfect tour to take them... More

We started our day with a well dressed representative from Experience Tours, his name was Chris. He did his paper work and he went over what wineries that we would be visiting. We all had a great time, our guide made sure of that. A lot of wine, cheese, fun, and laughs. This is the 3rd time on the tour... More

We just had a great tour with Laura this past weekend for my sister's bachelorette! We had originally been scheduled (with another company) to do a boat tour but unfortunately the forecast called for a downpour. Our tour company put us in touch with Experience! and despite the lateness of the reservations they were able to accomadate us and our... More

I've done 2 tours in the past couple months; once with friends and once with my husband. It's the best way to see some of the best wineries around the Finger Lakes and because they have partnerships with the wineries, they make you feel like a VIP. Had Steph both times and she is so much fun and very knowledgeable!

We booked the Made In Ithaca Libations winery tour. The pickup location was easy to reach from our hotel and the driver/guide was right on time. The guide we had was absolutely awesome and really made everyone on our tour comfortable and have a good time. Included in the cost of the tour are small snacks, wine tasting fees, and... More
