How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The Price is Definitely right for this tour. I've been on probably 10 different "wine tours" and this was a steal, for sure! Frank, our driver, was very knowledable and friendly. My only complaint was that he took us to some of the biggest and overly crowded (which also led to paying high tasting prices). If I had to do over, I would of researched a bit more and suggested more of the smaller, more intimate wineries. My girlfriends and I had a blast! It was fantastic not to be able to have to worry about driving (while drinking) and the weather was perfect. I would like to point out, as other Goldstar members have noted, it is not a bus, but a van that takes you around. We had four girls in our "group" and we weren't able to sit together because the van was too small. My friend had to ride shot-gun all day while the remaining three of us crammed into the way back seat! We had a tough time getting in and out of the WAY back of the van (especially towards the end of the day - ha). But, as I said at the beginning, it's worth the crowded van for the price! The other members on our tour never really interacted with us, but we had a great time anyhow! I really think it's a total crap-shoot to see who ends up on your tour. It's perfect for those who want to be left alone and enjoy their day or for those who love to chat up with the other tour goers! Make it your own day! Overall, I'd highly recommend and go again! I'd make sure I had a few wineries in mind and get there earlier to stake out a better seat in the van! :)
