Have taken many wine tours over the years with my wife (I do not drink wine) this has to be without doubt the best ever. A single person operation, Adam provides a personal service treating each of his guests as individuals. Small number tour with a max of ten guests, very clean a d tidy mini van that would seat 13 people if required. Each person gets a good snack pack with water, chips, pretzels, mints, drink holder, cake and mints. More bottled water available if required. Also a lanyard, if the lanyard is how in the cafe at the second wi eryyou get 10% off your meal.
Three winery visits all within 25 to 30 minutes of the the pick up point. Winery chosen by Adam himself all great in thier own way. At least 5 wines sampled at each venue.
If you like wine and wine tours I would recommend this tour to you. I wish Adam all the luck in the world with his fairly new venture. A well deserved 10/10.

I've been living in Northern Virginia for the last two years. I had always known that the wineries in the area were great, but because I was concerned about driving between the wineries, I hadn't gone out to see them yet. I'm SO glad I used the Getaway Driver. My boyfriend and I both loved the wineries (and even bought some wine to bring home!). The driver was friendly, knowledgeable, and made the experience extremely enjoyable. I would happily use another one of the Getaway Driver's tours to see more of the area and highly recommend this service.

I never write reviews but this tour and the Getaway Driver's service were so wonderful that I had to leave these comments! I was in town visiting a friend and this was the perfect way to spend the day; what could be better than catching up with an old friend, drinking wine and being chauffered around?! We really enjoyed the wineries and Adam's service was impeccable - he used to be a police officer so you can certainly trust him. I highly recommend the Getaway Driver!

Adam is awesome, very professional and friendly! I booked this wine tour for my mother's 60th birthday and she had the time of her life! The wine we got to try was amazing and the lunch was so delicious. It was a group of 10 of us and there was not a second we all weren't laughing and having a good time. Actually the ride home at the end of the day, was very quiet : )
Highly recommend this wine tour!

My friend was visiting for the weekend, so we decided to go on a winery tour -- and I'm so glad we found the Getaway Driver! Adam was fantastic, the wine was delicious and the tour was so well planned out. We had such a good time and it was a great value for a full day of fun, food and drinks. Definitely recommend!

We booked a winery tour for our friend's 30th birthday celebration. We were the only reservation of the day so we had the whole bus to ourselves. Adam was very friendly and extremely helpful by taking our photo in front of each of the wineries (thanks, Adam!). We visited three wineries, each with their own history and charm. All of the employees were very welcoming and willing to answer our questions. Overall, I highly recommend this trip!

My husband and I booked a tour for my parents when they were in town last weekend, and it was a blast! I found this tour after visiting Charlottesville, VA and going on a “hop-on-hop-off” tour there and wondering why there weren’t more in the DMV given the large number of wineries up here......enter The Getaway Driver! We really enjoyed the wines at Pearmund Cellars (whites AND reds). Although we weren’t as fond of the wines at the latter establishments (probably not a horrible thing given the tastings everywhere were generous), the other sites had their own appeal in their history (Vint Hill) and setting (Effingham). This trip was great because the cost was good, and it included everything - tasting fees, snacks, and a really tasty lunch! I’d definitely do this again (and now Pearmund is on my list of go-to wineries in the area). I not only would love to try another tour, but hope more are in the works one day when expansion allows! Highly recommend for a fun day!

Such a nice trip! We had an amazing day going through the wineries and doing all of the tastings. The wineries are beautiful and the guides are very knowledgeable. Our driver Adam is very nice and accommodating, this is the second tour our group did with him (first was a history birthday tour) and we've loved both experiences. Highly recommend!

We really enjoyed our brewery, winery, and distillery tour! The ride was really relaxing, and it was nice to see parts of Virginia that I otherwise wouldn't along the way to the different stops. Every destination had quality products, and I would 10000% do this again! We had plenty of time to relax and enjoy ourselves at each stop, and we were provided with snacks and drinks while in the van. Very thoughtful driver and very fun trip!
