Joe was great! He was entertaining and informative. One of the wineries was great. one was very good. The first winery polished the bar before we arrived and there was still residue on it. The wine was OK. The second winery was the best. The host was great and the tour was as well. The third was ok and the last was good. All of us on the trolley had an enjoyable time.

3 star rating: Worth doing October 2015

The tour was nice. The tour stopped at some nice wineries that I would not have normally stopped. They provided plenty of water to keep us hydrated. We were disappointed that we were in a bus instead of a trolley. That was the entire reason why we booked the tour.
