We booked a tour for 10 people. They called me 2 hours before the tour to tell me driver was unavailable and they were canceling my reservation. I panicked and called other companies around to put something together last minute. When I told the other companies what happened, they said they frequently hear about this scam from this company. I called back to find out what vineyards they were sending me to, and could not find the name of them anywhere online. I immediately contacted my credit card company to dispute the charge. Please beware!

I unfortunately used this horrendous company for a company outing. Per our contract with Wine Tours Virginia and confirmation through email, we were to be picked up in a mini bus and instead were picked up in a extremely out-dated van that didn't accommodate our group. Not to mention the driver was almost 30 minutes late. ON TOP OF THAT, THE COMPANY THEY CHARTERED THE VAN WITH CHARGED OUR CREDIT CARD AN ADDITIONAL $576. Like others, the wineries were not expecting us. Save yourself the headache and book with someone else.

I booked a wine country tour through this company. I expected them to pick the wineries, book and pay the limo, and pay for the tastings. I also was thinking there would actually be a tour or a guide that came along with the limo to tell us all about VA wine country. I expected at least some type of tour when we got to the vineyard. When our limo bus arrived, the driver greated me, but did not know where he was going and where these wineries were. He did say he had GPS, but as I found out after getting on the bus; he didn't know how to use it. I had to program the GPS for him. Even when close to the winery another person on my bus had to guide him to the place since he was basically circling the same office complex (no winery in sight). Once at the winery, the lady kindly asked how we were going to pay for the tastings. I told her that the company arranged to have that paid upfront. She shook her head and that made me think to ask her if they have done this before. She said yes. We used our credit card, luckily and were on our way to the second winery and the same thing occurred. It seemed that both wineries expected us, but had not received payment. Again, we paid out of pocket. The tour that went from 10:30am to 5:00pm was a total of $750 to VA Wine Country Tours for this all-inclusive adventure. After realizing the tastings were not included, and we had purchased our own lunches prior, we basically paid $750 for a limo bus with a driver who didn't know where to go and for a person to call the wineries to say we were coming. That's it. Nothing else was included. For that cost, I could've booked a cheaper limo bus, paid for tastings and still gotten a better deal. The kicker isn't even that they claimed they were all inclusive. The kicker came a few days prior when our credit card to hold the reservation was fraudulently charged another $796 from a completely different company: Limos.com. With an additional charge from the same company the Saturday after for $132. I did contact my email contact and told him that we had a bad bus driver, albeit a nice one, and that we had to pay for tastings. He reitterated that they do not pay for alcohol/wine of any kind including tastings, flights, etc. However, the first email I asked him was specifically about that and the response was they were an all inclusive company. Their definition of all inclusive is obviously gravely different then mine and the rest of the customers on this page. DO NOT USE THEM!!!!
