Fabulous. This day could not have been better. The guide and driver were fantastic. Would highly recommend doing this trip.
It was a horrible rainy day, but I still loved the wineries - some good wines. The shopping trip added nothing to the day for me, as I would have preferred more wineries. The picnic lunch was very good even though we had to eat it inside due to the weather. The guide Liz was knowledgeable and very informative. A good trip
Had to search around for joining point (a moveable sign) and the resulting van was not easy to get in and out of. Neither was it particularly comfortable. Stopping at Panera Bread is not what I would consider a "warming farmhouse breakfast" and for lunch to be picked up at the same time was not what I had expected...thought the picnic lunch would be provided by the final tasting venue.
We only had 2 hours at the shopping outlets on our way to the wine tastings however the tasting venues were well organised and it was lovely to see a little of the North Fork scenery.
This tour has a potential to become one of the best tours in NY only if two major elements were improved. 1) I definitely think that the outlet shopping part should be eliminated. 2) rather we could have spent more time in vineyards (not just tasting inside)
Good trip and good journey there and back. Would have liked bigger and busier wineries Unfortunately the only other traveller with us was an angry and disgruntled German lady who although pleasant let everyone know how unhappy she was and didn't make for the best third of a threesome of travellers. Pleasant and helpful guide and driver.
