Iowa Wine Tours was fantastic! Our guide Dennis was so wonderful! He is very knowledgeable about the wineries and the beautiful area. We started our wine tour at Galena Cellars, then to Rocky Waters and ended at Massbach. We had such a great time! I would highly recommend doing a wine tour with Dennis and Iowa Wine Tours.

Great time! Love being picked up and dropped off where we were staying. Dennis was very knowledgable of the area and wineries. He was also very accommodating. He packed up our wine and put it on the bus. Highly recommend!

He was very personable and attentive. Dennis made sure everyone was having a good time at each of the 3 wineries we visited. Before each winery he... More

I recently was fortunate to enjoy a wine tour with friends. We enjoyed the day going around to to the wineries on a very clean and comfortable bus. Dennis was very professional and knowledgeable about the area. We will definitely do this tour again.

We LOVED the service we received from Iowa Wine Tours so much during a girls' weekend in Galena a couple of years ago that we can't wait to let them host our night out again! Dennis picked us up right at our door! He knows all the best places and is always open to suggestion. More than just a great... More
