Thanks so much for the sweet review, Linda! As you know, we covet our returning guests (or as Steph refers to them "repeat offenders"), and know that they are the litmus test to doing it right! Back almost 10 years ago, when Alan and I sat down to write our Mission Statement for our new company, we stressed how we... More

We traveled to Ithaca for my Fiancés Birthday getaway. Went on the wine tour down Cayuga Lake---it was fantastic! We loved our Guide Liz! She was very educational and fun! Would definitely recommend!

This tour was beyond our expectations! As the planner, I was so happy! We were a party of six, 3 couples and everyone enjoyed it! Our tour guide was fabulous! Sad for us and you that Stephanie is moving to Switzerland! We loved every stop on the tour and lunch was perfect! Thanks again!!

We booked a weekend at the finger lakes and used this gem of a company to book a wine tour package. I communitcated with Carolyn, who couldn't have been nicer in making the arrangements. She kept me up to date with changes and information she needed from our group. The hotel was lovely, which i have recognized in another review.... More

My best friend and I booked a full day wine tour of Seneca Lake Banana Belt and it was amazing! We visited four wineries - all incredible - and a delicious lunch was included at our second stop. Our "wine guide" and driver was Samantha and she's so knowledgeable about the area and the wine-making business. You learn so much... More

We went on this wine tour along with three other couples. It was great to experience different wineries without having to worry about driving between them. Steph, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable and a lot of fun throughout the tour. I would highly recommend this package.

We searched online for the best wine tours in the Finger Lakes and Experience the Finger Lakes came up. We booked via Yelp which uses a third party to make the confirmations but you can call them directly as well. We went with the Cayuga East Treasure Box Wine Tour which runs close to 6 hours and stops at three... More
