How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The Little wine Bus is a good time from start to finish. First, you meet in Times Square, the most exciting location in the universe. Then you're greeted by Jake, a native New Yorker who lived in California long enough to be permanently sun-blessed and vibrant. On the bus there's grape vines hanging from every seat and Dean Martin singing "Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime" blasting on the CD player. Tania, the tour operator gets everybody stirred up giving the fun itinerary and then gives everyone a hot bagel with cream cheese and homemade apple butter. It just gets better. There's a history of wine video, karaoke opportunity and that's just the bus! The vineyards are spectacular. As crowded, noisy and diry as Manhattan is is how serene, clean and beautiful the Hudson Valley is. There's a 5-6 wine tasting at each of the three vineyards visited and a fantastic lunch. And don't worry about calories, try the cannoli cake it's brilliant. Anyone visiting NYC or just wanting to get a nice change of scene and have a great time should check this event out. Can't wait to jump on the Little Beer Bus in the fall! Cheers
