We searched online for the best wine tours in the Finger Lakes and Experience the Finger Lakes came up. We booked via Yelp which uses a third party to make the confirmations but you can call them directly as well. We went with the Cayuga East Treasure Box Wine Tour which runs close to 6 hours and stops at three... More

Our tour was great, and guide Stephanie was awesome, and Danny did great with the murder mystery as well. My team have all come to me afterwards and said how great of an experience and how much fun they all had! Could this become an annual thing??? Maybe, we'll have to see. But seriously, thank you for being open to... More

We weren't disappointed! We were picked up at our hotel in a comfortable van and given some goodies - filled water bottles and... More

We were picked up in a beautiful new van that was clearly marked and with clean, comfortable seats. Water bottles were provided to assist with keeping us hydrated between stops. We visited four wineries with lunch in the middle of the day. Our tour guide, Steph, was great at breaking the ice with our fellow passengers. She had both a... More

We enjoyed it so much that I made a point of booking with them again this past summer. Our first tour was "Vine, Wine and Dine" on Seneca lake, so I went with a Cayuga tour this time... More
