From first point of contact, to saying good bye at drop off, Clem was 1000%. Genuine, very knowledgeable about wine (and beer), the winemaking community in the hill country, and just all around very much appreciated. Cellar Rat knows how to do this. Katie curated our itinerary based on what we told her we liked, and she did awesome. She called the day before to check in, Clem showed up 15 min early, helped everyone in and out of the van, schooled us on any questions we had and flawlessly took care of all the reservations. Pre ordered lunch so that it was ready when we got to our destination. These guys and gals are organized, and have a knack for this. We are so happy we chose to ride with them, no detail left unthought of. Done this in Napa a couple of times, and I can tell you with solid certainty that Cellar Rats exceeded my experiences with the service levels even there. I am already looking forward to coming back and I know who to call. Thank you so much for taking us around. Will never forget!

We booked a winery tour for my sister’s bachelorette party and Chris was great. He was super attentive to our needs, made sure our wines matched our preferences and kept us hydrated throughout the day. He went above and beyond by bringing snacks and being our photographer for the day! Cayde helped with our itinerary and did a great job planning wineries that really matched what we were looking for. It was a great day and would 100% recommend for anyone headed to Fredericksburg.

Just returned from a 2-couple private tour with Chris, and it was phenomenal. The expertise he provided on the wineries we visited and the region in general, in addition to the flawless execution of the tour, was well worth the price. Cellar Rats is actually a small operation run by a few people who clearly pride themselves on individual attention and top notch service. No small detail was overlooked, from food being brought to our table at lunch with silverware and a surprise local beer tasting, to Chris standing at the ready to carry our wine purchases, to the pre-air conditioned vehicle, to an unexpected pit stop at a fantastic winery because we ran early on our schedule. We will recommend Cellar Rats to all. Made our day of touring spectacular and completely carefree…exactly how a vacation getaway should be. It was pure perfection. Thank you!

Absolutely incredible wine tour! My husband and I booked a Friday tour, and there was one other couple with us. I think our small group made the tour even more enjoyable because we had plenty of time to enjoy the spots we visited and to really get to know each other. Chris, our tour guide and driver, was knowledgeable and friendly, often providing us with some background as we drove to our different visits. We went to 3 wineries (William Chris, AB Astris, Lost Draw) and even had time to stop at the Altstadt Brewery between the last two visits. Although William Chris was my personal favorite stop of the day, all 3 wineries were incredible and our lunch, which was included, was awesome. Even my husband, who doesn't enjoy wine nearly as much as I do, said he had an awesome time and was glad we went on the tour. I had considered other wine tour companies in the Fredericksburg area, but I chose Cellar Rat based on their great reviews and was not disappointed! Our experience was worth every penny, and I would highly recommend picking Cellar Rat for your wine tour!

This was the best winery tour I’ve ever been on!! Chris did an amazing job of reading our groups vibe and suggesting great options. At our third stop, he did such an excellent job of accommodating some friends who had a different wine preference! He was so helpful and gave us great info about each winery. I will definitely recommend Cellar Rat & Chris to all my friends!

Hands down recommend Cellar Rat and our boy, Clem! We were in town for a Birthday/ Girls Trip and Clem did an AMAZING job at keeping up with us (trust me we can be a handful), handling all our bags of purchases, being a wealth of knowledge about wine and the industry. He exceeded expectations and we really enjoyed the day. Love our Clementine and Cellar Rat!

We booked a private tour with Cellar Rat Tours for my bachelorette weekend and they exceeded expectations beyond measure. Based on our preferences, they picked out the BEST locations for our trip. Not only that - but our tour guide, Chris, was phenomenal. He was knowledgeable and a perfect gentleman. At each stop we were treated like VIPs and the tastings were superb. In fact, we ended up buying 27 bottles between the four of us. I can’t imagine touring vineyards in Fredericksburg any other way from now on. Thanks for a memory we’ll never forget, Cellar Rat!

I own and operate a tour operation in Grand Cayman so I'm pretty sure I understand how tour operators should function, and this operation is top notch! They go above and beyond to ensure their customers have fun. Everything from booking this with Cadye and our tour guide Chris were absolutely epic! Chris has an amazing knowledge of wine and is great a customer service. He ensures that you will not even carry a bottle of wine to the car because they absolutely do everything. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone and I will definitely be visiting them again! The vans are immaculate, new, and very comfortable. The tour visits some of the best wineries in the region and none of the overrun, commercial places that so many visit. They have a focus on Texas wine and it shows! The will show you some all star places! they were an 11 out of 12! Thanks Chris!

We LOVED everything about the winery experience. Chris was so well versed and knowledgeable. We could ask him anything and he either had the answer or would seek out an answer for us. He was very professional and truly went above and beyond for our girl Bekah which made her feel very special in a subtle thoughtful way, exactly what she wanted. Chris thank you for the hard word and the genuine love for what you do radiating upon your clients. The day left us buzzed and exhausted, it was a good day to have a good day.

I booked Cellar Rat Wine Tours for a Bachelorette weekend for five gals and we had the absolute best time! First of all, their communication was fabulous and timely. They always answered my questions and followed-up as needed, which was a dream for a type-A planner. Second, the experience was amazing! If I could give them six stars, I would have. We had Cadye as our tour guide and we loved her! It was during a bit of a cold snap but she brought along blankets for us, was a total trooper taking photos of our group (I’m talking over 100 pics!), played excellent music, made sure we were on time and had what we needed. She even got us a last minute indoor lunch table since it was too chilly to picnic outside!! Third, the EASE of this tour was delightful. The fact that we were able to visit three wineries, have reserved tastings ready ant prime tables, and then have our transportation taken care of was so nice! No searching desperately for Ubers, no missing our tastings, no forgetting our purchases. I would recommend Cellar Rat for any group/couple planning to visit Fredericksburg. The attention to detail, knowledge of the guides, and overall experience cannot be beat!
