    Snowshoe John is absolutely fabulous. His knowledge of the area and the history made the bus ride even more enjoyable. Lunch was incredibly good and no where near any box lunch level. The wineries were wonderful, especially Chateau Davall. My future daughter-in-law and I enjoyed every minute and are enjoying all our purchases!

    Wonderful trip through the mountains with great scenery and weather from Lake Tahoe. Snowshoe was a great tour guide. Very knowledgeable of area and entertained with great facts and stories. Wineries were diverse and all included wines of all types. Lunch was fresh and delicious. Great trip. Would highly recommend for a fun adventure.

    This was so much fun and I highly recommend it for first time and returning visitors. Again, Snowshoe John was our host and he was entertaining and informative. Jodar was a wonderful winery with great wines, and Mitch the Wine Guy was very fun! Thanks, Suzanne and Vicki

    The scenery was gorgeous and the weather perfect for a day in the wine country. Our guide, Snowshoe John, was very knowledgeable about the area and entertaining as well. Highly recommended!

    Great trip ! After a beautiful informative drive you arrive in wine country. Everyone at all the wineries were super nice and a lot of fun. Enjoyed a great lunch at the third winery. After lunch you were given the option to either visit a another winery or visit a craft brewery which we chose to do. Fun way to spend a day !

    The trip was a lot of fun. Snowshoe John knows a lot about the area and the history. It makes the time to the sites pass quickly. The first three wineries are definitely the best. The last three are ok. Basically sales sites for wineries not on site. But the one that pairs cheese with the wine is definitely worth the time.

    Informative tour guide, good number of tastings. Nice comfy tour bus. Lunch was a serve yourself sandwich buffet with food from a grocery store. No scenic sites for pictures. Very pretty drive but no stops for scenic views or pictures. Even the wineries were not on scenic winery views.

    Loved it! We also went last year. The only thing I wish they would change is more time at the second stop. They have a wonderful Farmers Market and would love more time. The last stop was way too long. Should switch. Other than that it was wonderful and would go again.

    Snowshoe John, our guide, was great! Informative and fun. We were a bit ahead of schedule and he gave us a mini-side trip to Hangtown with the background on the name. All in all a fun day!

    Our guide, Snowshoe John, was very knowledgeable and informative about the Tahoe area and the old Pony Express route and history. Our first stop, the Boeger Vineyards was beautiful, the wines were great and the day was perfect. The other two morning stops paled in comparison but were still interesting. Our guide allowed us to call an afternoon audible and we stopped at the Jack Russell Brewery for some beer tasting. GREAT beers and a lovely afternoon...great end to the trip!
