5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2013

The wineries were very nice and the people were MORE than helpful and friendly. They also offered us more than the allotted amount of tastings plus let us "re-taste" when trying to decide which ones to purchase. One of them even gave us our glasses to keep! Our tour guide was informative but not "over-the-top"… The visit in Fredricksburg was nice but not long enough for me… That's not the tours fault though… Just gives us a reason to go back on our own some day!
Hotel pick up was convenient and on-time.
The drive fro San Antonio to Fredricksburg was just under 1 1/2 hours… so plan for that…
I would do this tour again.

the best thing about the tour was are tour guide his name was Bob. He made are day the best day of are nine day trip. He told us so much history of the area and was in no hurry to make us do anything we did not want to do. Please let him know how much we enjoyed the tour and how much we enjoyed him as our guide, we loved every minute of the tour. Thanks so much Pat and Ron Coughlin from Iowa.

Almost cancelled due to a lack of people signed up but they combined 2 tours and it worked out great. While we were in Fredricksburg, the other group went to the LBJ Ranch and then they shopped Fredricksburg while we went to the wineries. The driver was born and raised in the area and had a lot of personal knowledge. The wineries were interesting and we had personalized service at each.

Started 2hours late

4 star rating: Recommended April 2013

We had a wonderful time and our tour guide was excellent. However, our group was combined with a group going to the LBJ Ranch. We didn't have near enough time in Fredericksburg and we had to wait an hour for the group to get back from the Ranch so we could go to the wineries. I think we would have had plenty of time to do everything we wanted to do if we wouldn't have been waiting for the other group.

3 star rating: Worth doing June 2014

The guide was very well informed, he needed a small microphone in the mini van. The winery tour was good and the samples were plentiful. Time allotted was good. Fredricksburg was interesting but mainly shopping.

3 star rating: Worth doing June 2013

The bus was an hour and a half late. We were supposed to leave at 9:00 and did not leave until 10:30. When the bus driver did show up he seemed apologetic and told us that the trip would not be cut short at all and we would still get to have the allotted amount of time at each stop. He kept his word, however about half way through the tour he became a kind of rude and grumpy and remained that way the rest of the trip. When we got back to San Antonio my friend accidentally left some gifts items on the bus and we tried to waive him down but he didn't stop. She called daily for the next week trying to recover her items but the tour company kept saying that the bus hadn't been cleaned yet. Then when it finally was cleaned her items were no where to be found.
