Our driver (Dennis) was on time, friendly, knowledgeable, and very easy to work with. We went to 3 wineries in the Galena countryside and Dennis prepped us with information about each one before we arrived. I would recommend this to anyone looking to spend the day seeing the wineries of Galena. Having Dennis drive us made this a worry-free, very... More

Booked the Galena tour for my wife’s birthday over the 4th of July weekend; both the tour and tour guide (Dennis) were excellent! Dennis was very easy to coordinate with and arrived early for the pick up from our hotel. The bus was air-conditioned and pre-stocked with water for everyone; a very nice touch. He was very knowledgeable about the... More

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.

This was the first wine tasting to kick off our Wine Lover's Weekend in Galena and it was a fantastic choice. We were picked up at Eagle Ridge by Dennis, our tour guide. 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
