Our half day "Spirits, Wine and Beer" tour was fantastic! We were new to the area and our tour guide Chris did a great job teaching us about the area and all it has to offer. The winery was great and the tour at the distillery was really informative. It was an incredible experience and a wonderful way to spend... More

I would highly recommend this tour. It was both informative and a lot of fun!! Laura was very knowledgeable about the area and the food and wine industry. She was able to provide interesting details at every stop. Detective Dan made the murder investigation very engaging and we were able to test out our theories as we collected our evidence.... More

I found a list of tours on a Google search and USA Today article popped up. After reviewing a few of the websites, this company seemed like the best bet. I signed up for the tour just 4 days before it. I signed up for the $115 Culinary Wine Tour on Cayuga, which seemed like the best bet also I... More

The Cayuga Wine Trail West "Taste & Learn" tour took us to the Cayuga Ridge, Hosmer, Goose Watch, and Sheldrake Point Wineries. Each offered something a little different, all offered many, many samples. Among the advantages of going on a tour like this is that you're with a small group, everyone's friendly, the tour guide (the effervescent and engaging Stephanie... More

Elizabeth gave an amazing tour of the area, and she was a really nice person! We were in Ithaca to visit Cornell as prospective college students, and this helped us get a feel for the area!
