“This was an excellent tour and a great day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

We just finished a wine tour and this is the company to select! Our guide, Anita, made sure that everyone had fun, learned and got to enjoy. The group was amazing and we had a nice cross section of people to keep it fun. In addition to what you may expect, there was a wonderful lunch at stop 1 and a nice outdoor wine and cheese tasting at stop 3. These folks run a very nice tour and the wineries they selected each have a different flavor; not only of wine but of ambiance.

“A fun day on the waterfall/beer tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

We did the beer/waterfall tour with Gary and thoroughly enjoyed it. The morning started with mamamosas and mini muffins. The waterfalls were a short walk and beautiful. Gary is very knowledgable and was an excellent guide. After lunch, we toured a small local brewery and a larger one. Both were really interesting and we had a great day. We ended the day at The Poe House, and were given a delicious cheese tray. Gary, Kimberley, and Derrick were very hospitable and provided a fun and interesting day.

“great in concept, poor in communication and delivery”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

I organized a wine tour through Kimberlee for a girls weekend/bachelorette over memorial day weekendand was extremely disappointed with the service, communication, and entire day. We made the most of it, but at the end of the day I would have rather have just hired a car service and mapped out wineries on my own. Please beware of the following:

• Kimberlee was 45 minutes late for picking us up for our day of wineries.
• Kimberlee drove us to our first winery while texting-and-driving, and when one of us expressed concern she snapped at us.
• Our tour included *pastries and mimosas*, but we did not get these until noon (and the *pastries* = mini-muffins). ~10 minutes later we were served lunch (so if you book you might want to eat your own breakfast and plan on bringing snacks).
• Kimberlee and I discussed an itinerary with a specific pick-up and drop-off time and did not recollect that discussion nor did she come close to meeting our requests or expectations.
• When I special requested a particular winery stop (and called ahead to confirm that they could take our party for tasting), she refused to take us there because she didn’t have a *business relationship* with the winery.

I think we could have figured something else out on our own, and I have been successful in the past with NC Wineries with just hiring a car service/van separately and mapping out your own tour. I would recommend that for the money. It made for a very awkward and stressful day that should have been all sunshine and wine.

“Travels In Wine....not so much”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

We had a reservation for Friday April 19th for a tour of several wineries in the Hendersonville area for my fiance's birthday. At 6 pm on Thursday, Travels in Wine called to say the group we had been put with cancelled and our tour was cancelled as well. While we were given an opportunity to reschedule, we had already planned a weekend getaway with a hotel reservation.
To top it off, we booked through Living Social so Travels in Wine could not refund our money.
I bet if I cancelled less than 24 hrs. before the tour Travels in Wine would have kept most of my fee.

TravelsInWine, Owner at Travels in Wine Day Tours, responded to this review, April 20, 2013
We have a very strict policy, that many tour companies adhere to and that is if we have less than 6 people scheduled on one of our public tours that you will be rescheduled to a different day. This is listed on our website as well as is explained at the time of booking.

We do offer private tours any day of the week for any amount of people and this was explained as well as well as many other options offered to them to reschedule as quickly as possible. 99% of our tours are booked well in advance and very few fall below the minimum. We sincerely hate when that happens and try to make as many possible options available as possible. We pride our self on our customer service, as it is very important to us to take care of every single customer from the time of booking to the the time they leave after their tour.
