“Awesome Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2011

My wife, her sister, brother-in-law and I booked the Vinifera Varieties: Wines of the Seneca Lake Banana Belt tour. Our tour guide Caron was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the area and its wines. Each stop treated us with a special wine tasting paired with food - we were not just taken to a winery and dumped to stand at a tasting bar with everyone else. In fact at most stops someone greeted our group upon arrival. The wineries were interesting and diverse offering a fabulous insight into the wines of Seneca Lake's banana belt. It was an awesome experience and well worth the value, even without the special touches that made the tour even more memorable. Next time we come back to the Finger Lakes we'll be certain to include another Experience!

“Awesome Wine Tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2011

We toured with Experience on Oct.9th on a wine tasting and food pairing. Kari was our guide, and she was so well organized and knowledgeable about the area and the wines. She just added so much to our experience with hre wonderful humor and many surprises along the way!

The day was the ultimate in fall weather, the wineries selected were great, and the food was thoughtfully paired with the selections offered. We would highly recommend this tour with Experience! The Finger Lakes, and we'll most likely go again some day.

“Great Time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2011

My girlfriend and I decided to go on a wine tour of the banana belt (Seneca Lake) on 10/15. We stopped at 4 wineries and a cheese farm. Our tour guide, Caren, was great! She was very knowledgable and fun to hang out with all day. We have never been to the Finger Lakes before and would recommend this tour/company as they do a terrific job!

“Fun Day of Wine and Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2011

The culinary wine tour on Cayuga Lake with our guide Kari was a lot of fun! We went to four wineries and each one served a delicious course of food to pair with the wine. We learned a lot about the region and had a great time doing it. Would highly recommend. Thanks Kari!
