We loved our tour with Les! It's really great value and such an enjoyable trip. We got to visit 7-8 different wineries and since it was Saturday we stopped at a local market for lunch and shopping. Les was knowledgeable about the area and really engaged the whole group. He gave out fun prizes along the way too. I would... More

Frisky Wine Tours is great! My wife and I went on Les' tour and had a great time. Les was able to customize the tour based on what types of wines you like and would make adjustments after the first few wineries after our feedback on the wines. We stopped at 7 wineries and also for lunch. He would suggest... More

What a day! We took the tour with Les last Thursday, and we cannot wait to go back. Everything about the tour was great. Les was very accommodating (we only had the two of us on his tour that day). There was really only one winery that we were not big fans of, but they had a brewery there too,... More

We had a great time. Les took us to a variety of wineries and was very knowledgeable about the wines at each place. After a stop or two he was able to suggest what we should try at each place, he was very helpful. We had lots of fun, great tour and great guy to tour with!

Based on TA reviews I booked with Frisky and was not disappointed! Frisky (Les) picked us up at our hotel right on time and was very friendly. There were only 4 others on the bus, probably due to the horrible weather but they were all fun. Frisky asked each of us our preference on wine and then tailored the stops... More

Frisky Wine Tour was tops. My sister and I couldn't have had a better day on the wine trail. We were picked up on time at our motel, our driver was fun, he knew the wineries and tasting rooms, gave plenty of time for shopping, chose a nice, reasonable restaurant for lunch, provided a cooler for keeping items cool, boxes...

Les called ahead of time to pick us up across the road on time. Took us to 7 wineries and took about 6 1/2 hours. conversed with all on the bus and catered to our desired wines. Had a great time and will be back with more friends.
