Laura led an amazing half day tour for my girlfriends and I on Seneca Lake. We all enjoyed the personal touches that came from each of the three wineries that we visited. Having the tastings in either the cellar or in a separate location from the public was an extremely nice touch. There were 13 total on this tour (three... More

Great day of learning and tasting with Laura and three very nice wineries. Very knowledgeable staff and private tastings at each location. Bought bottles from each winery to enjoy at home.

My son and I went on the half-day tour, visiting three wineries in the East Seneca Lake district. There were a total of nine of us on the tour. Steph, our tour guide, was very friendly and engaging. She had a particular challenge in that five of the nine of us were a family from Chile, only one of whom... More

So many state parks and waterfalls to visit. 2 days may not be sufficient to admire the beauty. Do visit the enfield state park, buttermilk falls and a distant view of Taughannock Falls.

Enjoyed our vinyard tours. The 1st tour was great and informative. The 2nd was ok. The 3rd vinyard was not the best tour. Our tour guide was informative, but a little overbearing in some cases. May have been better if there were more then just the 2 of us on the tour ( others to socialize with).

My husband, daughter and I joined 8 other very nice people on a Vine, Wine, and Dine tour on 7/11/15. Our tour guide Steph was informative and entertaining. The tastings were all different, which made for a comprehensive look at the different types of Finger Lakes wines. We especially enjoyed Silver Thread co-owner Shannon, who educated us on the science... More

I had a group of 11 for a low key bachelorette party do the banana belt 1/2 day tour and it was sooo lovely! The fact that you call and pay a set rate and they do all the scheduling is fantastic. The wineries were also all great- very pretty and informative (and obviously full of wine, yum!!) I highly... More

Did the vinifera "banana belt" tour of the east side of Seneca Lake, the longest of the Finger Lakes. We had a great time and were truly treated like VIPs by all, starting with our tour guide and driver, Rachel. Had a private vineyard tour, three private set-ups for tasting and pairings, including the last with infused chocolates. We had... More
