My boyfriend and I went on the Nelson County tour a couple days ago and had an incredible time! We highly recommend and will definitely be doing this again with a big group of friends. Our driver (and also co-founder of the company) was John, and he made the experience awesome for everyone! John and all the staff at each place we went to were super knowledgeable and accommodating. They all seemed to have a good relationship with Cville Hop on Tours, so we were treated with extra special attention. We also got 10-15% off in each of the gift shops for all purchases, which was awesome.

This tour picked up the group at Three Notch'd. The bus was new, comfortable, clean, equipped with a TV and sound system, and filled with complimentary water and snacks. We started off at Virginia Distillery, did a full tour of the museum and distillery with Patrick, and then did a private whiskey tasting as well as 2 cocktail tastings. Beautiful place!

We had to change the schedule for the day to accommodate an event at Blue Ridge Barrel House, so we went there next. We each got a full flight of 5 different beers and had time to order food from their food truck before a full tour with Clay. All really interesting!

Next, we went to Lovingston Winery, which was a great addition to this schedule! It's a much smaller winery, but that made the tour that much more interesting. We did a tasting of about 5 of their wines...all of which were wonderful.

Afterwards, we went to Bold Rock Cidery. We had personally already done that tour and really love the venue, so we skipped out on the tour and drank a pitcher while waiting for be group. We also got a full flight of 4 of their ciders included with the tour.

The last stop was Hill Top Berry Farm & Winery. Again...such a cool addition to the schedule!! They focus on meads there, which many of us had never tried. We did a tasting of about 6 different meads in their private tasting area. Super cool place!

Whiskey, beer, wine, cider, and mead...so if you want a little bit of everything, the Nelson County tour is a great one to choose!

I can only imagine that any of the tours would be amazing. The level of service and "VIP" treatment we got at each place we went to really set this tour above others I'd done. Cville Hop On Tours is genuinely excited about supporting all the local businesses in this area, and this really shows! Can't say enough good things.

For all-day transportation, private tastings/tours at 5 different places, and water/snacks...the price more than pays for itself!

This was a fantastic day. I was not excited to go on this tour, but I found it to be thoroughly enjoyable. We visited 5 different facilities and learned something new at each one.
Our tour guide had a tremendous knowledge and passion for the beverage industry that was easily absorbed by all. The tour was efficient, comfortable, and I would do it again when in the area.

The guide had a thorough knowledge of the production process and drinks at each of the five locations and presented his information in an enjoyable manner. The places visited treated us like honored guests and we bypassed other visitors to receive more tastings and a more personal experience. The scenery was beautiful. The cost was very reasonable--it would have cost about 75% of the rate we paid just to pay for the flights at each stop but in addition to the comfortable bus, we also received snacks and cold water on the bus between stops, discounts on merchandise purchases, multiple videos on the area and the various stops, the ability to do the tastings without worry of the amount of alcohol we were imbibing, and direct transportation without worry of getting lost on the back roads. We're planning to return for other tours in the future.

This was a great experience! My husband and I did a 3 Brewery Tour - went to Three Notched, South Street and Bold Rock, was a great time! Not only were the breweries amazing and friendly, Jon with Hop on Tours was very knowledgable and made it a fantastic experience! Highly recommend Cville Hop on Tours.

Great experience! Father's day gift (thanks family) for me and some friends. Jon was our driver/guide - he's friendly, knowledgeable of the area, it's food, it's history, the craft brewery and wine industry. Very relaxing way to enjoy food and beverages with friends or make new friends.
Suggest a Corporate outing also!
Met Derek at Three Notch'd brewery. He's one of the owners and provided us some great insight to the beers his team makes and his industry. Wonderful tour of the brewery by Jon and sampling in the "tap room".
At Pro Re Nata we met the manager, Brian. Brian was an awesome host and one of his associate brewmasters provided us a great tour of their brewing process.
At King's Winery we enjoyed Polo, food and wonderful wine.
You'll not find a better way to relax - van has water, A/C and informative videos to entertain between stops.
Book your tour now - best value you'll find in Virginia or DC!
