Scheduled our tour a few weeks in advance. JC, our driver, showed up about a half hour early so we started the tour early. More time to drink beer! JC was very knowledgeable and accommodating. We hit Blue Mountain Barrel House, Devil's Backbone, Bold Rock and Wild Wolf. JC kept the vehicle cool and ready to go when we were... More

I did a wine tour with Blue Ridge a few years ago. I was not part of the planning for that trip. The wine tour was nice. Not worth ~$400 more than any other good company though. Here's the story. Because of that nice wine tour a few years ago I booked a wine tour with Blue Ridge for Labor... More

We appreciate your feedback and are sorry that you did not have the opportunity to experience one of our current tours. It is true that we are unable to compete with other companies at much lower price points due to the level of service that we provide. Our experienced Wine Trail Guides bring a vast amount of knowledge of the... More

It was a pleasure working with Albemarle Limousine. I really appreciated their overall customer service. I know I can speak for the whole group when I say our driver, Bergen, did an excellent job facilitating my first (and many of the girls' first) Virginia winery tour adventure.

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

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
