Best experience and customer service. Andy was the best setting us up at beautiful wineries and understanding exactly what we were looking for. Our Driver was Dave (highly recommend you request him) he knew the area and showed up with a cooler of water plus truffles! You will not go wrong with Albemarle Limousine Service!

I took my first trip and posted a review in March/2014. It was a private wine tour with lunch for just my husband and I. Bit was our driver and he was fantastic. In April I decided to lock in my 4th of July plans with another wine tour, this time to include friends. We requested that Bit be our... More

My friends and I decided to host a bachelorette weekend in Charlottesville, Va., and visit a few wineries. Albemarle made booking a tour really easy, and they were very responsive each time I had a question. They showed up on time, and we had a wonderful driver who helped us load and unload everything we brought with us. Albemarle is... More

My friends and I were in Charlottesville celebrating a 50th birthday and we took the wine tour. It was fabulous. All five of us agreed that is was one of the most fun things we have done.

I can't say enough about this company. We had Michael as our guide, who is extremely cultured and knowledgeable about the region. We have done 5 hour tours for Fathers Day the past two years. Each time the experience has been impeccable, and we learn new things about the history of the area as well as the wine itself. Very... More

My sister and I did a sister's weekend wine tour. Our guide and driver Bit was professional, kind, and extremely knowledgeable. He altered our itinery on the fly based on what we were liking at the tasting rooms, which resulted in a fantastic experience complete with delicious wines and breathtaking views. The picnic Bit laid out was perfect and his... More

My dad and his wife live in Charlottesville and thought they had seen all the vineyards close by. We used Albemarle Limo to book a custom wine tour for them as a present from his children. The vineyards were all new to them and they loved the tour. Bit was a great guide and very knowledgeable about the Crozet area... More

My mother and I had the most incredible time touring the wineries! J.C. was incredibly knowledgeable, personable, and thoughtful. He made sure we were comfortable at every stop, became the photographer when we wanted some pictures and even chatted with us when we wanted to relax at our final stop. He had the perfect timing and made sure we were... More

We booked a custom wine tour for our 20th wedding anniversary. It was a first, but I had picked a theme for the day and the vineyards we wanted to visit. Michael was wonderful, prompt and filled with advice, history, insight and humor. He even tried to steer us away from my one poor choice. I didn't heed his advice,... More
