We traveled with 2 other couples so 6 of us total & we had a blast! The tour guide was awesome and had a good sense of humor he took us to some really great spots and even gave us some history as we were going to each stop, well worth the money spent and you most def will be feeling nice!
Amazing half day of wine and moonshine tasting!
, Sep 2021
Terri was our guide, she was amazing and showed us a fabulous time! Very knowledgeable about the area and the locations we visited. This is a half day experience and will not disappoint. We made 5 stops, sampled 3 wineries and 3 moonshines.
Fun tour, great tour guide!

The tour bus driver was AMAZING! Very personable to each walk of life. It’s our first time in the area and based on the tips and recommendations she gave us we will definitely be back!
Our experience was great!...

Our experience was great! We had a good time with the other people that went on the tour and our driver was awesome!

The driver with the mullet was pretty funny. All the tenders at the stops were nice. I loved how the wineries had slushy options. Big sexy finishing off the tour was the perfect way to end the day.
So much fun!
, Jul 2021
What a blast! Fantastic guide and more than enough stops to leave you feeling tipsy. 6 stops total- 3 wineries and 3 distilleries with plenty to sample. Our guide was knowledgeable and gave a lot of information while driving between the tour stops and gave ample time to enjoy ourselves at each stop.

The Tennessee xxx was my favorite this time, last time it was Sevier distilling but that wasn’t on the tour. The tour guides style wasn’t real popular with anyone in our group, the sexual references were not an add, last years tour guide was significantly better, and then their was the bus ac not working.
Don’t waste your money

The only positive thing about the trip was being driven around, except the bus had only no air. The ad says you get a free gift, which we didn’t. It also says it’s a fully narrated your . . Nope, just a few bad jokes. No history or anything you can do yourself. Even the winery’s and distilleries would ask which tour we were on and then say “oh, yeah that one sucks”. Save your money and drive to them yourself!

I don't recall telling any jokes. I didn't talk much that day, I didn't feel like it.
Super cool experience. 😎

My husband and I really enjoyed this excursion. Terri, the tour guide, was very engaging and personable. The people at the distilleries and wineries were all very helpful. I definitely would do this again.
Winery/moonshine tour
, Jul 2021
We had Terry on our tour she was an excellent guide! She was very knowledgeable of the area. She also had a great mapped out plan of where we were going to go. We started with two wineries and then finished with another winery and two distilleries. The traffic in the pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg area is horrendous and she was an excellent driver we did not have to worry about the traffic or parking. I was nervous that my husband and I were going to be out of place being two of the younger people on the tour and we were absolutely wrong or other tour mates were a hoot. We had a great time sampling with our new buddies. After we were done with the tour we went and did several other distilleries near where we were staying in Gatlinburg and honestly our favorites were the ones that we did on the tour! And thanks to terry and to the tour my husband and I have now developed a taste for moonshine! We would go on the tour again next time we’re back for sure
Fun tour

Terry our tour guide was wonderful. Moonshine was the best but only because i'm not a fan of sweet wines.
A fun, memorable time!
, Jun 2021
Our tour guide Eric was funny and that helped us to feel comfortable. He was informative about the area. The tastings were fun trying different flavors and by the end we were strangers that felt like friends.

Eric was a great tour guide. More wine less moonshine liked the Back room tour experience. The first place had wine that I really did Not like at all

My apologies, we had a very last minute heads up from the wineries that they no longer wanted our business and we were only given 2 days to create a new route. Your group unfortunately fell into that 2 day gray area where we had no route planned that included enough wine. All the wineries on the wine trail are owned by 1 company and so we had to remove all of the wineries off the route on Monday. As of 6/17/21 we have found new wineries who want our business. They are all small mom and pop wineries and their products are very unique and exceptionally good. Next time you are in town give us another shot and I'm sure you will be pleased.

The variety of stops made the trip exciting. The Moonshine stops the best. Tour guide was very informative between stops. Over all a very good tour.

Great Time was had by All
, May 2021
Eric our driver was entertaining and informative between stops kept us right on time . Most importantly keep your ID with you as you will need it at every stop. Luckily the wife and I were in with a fun group. Even though most breweries had their own say Apple or Corn flavored alcohol Each had a distinct taste. The shot glasses look small but let me assure you that you definitely get your money’s worth. Each of the stops put on a good show in hopes of making a sale. If you do purchase anything it is safe to leave on your tour bus. My wife and I highly recommend this tour.

Friday Fun

The tour was great fun! Met a lot of nice people, drank a lot of wine and moonshine and enjoyed ourselves.
, May 2021
variety of places we were taken too and the different people in our group from all across the country
absolutely a great time
, Apr 2021
Was so much fun. It would have been nice if tour guide would advise you that the coupon books offer discounts for many of the stops but even without that it was fun. Met very nice people and actually spent the entire evening with them. Be prepared to taste MANY different flavors so eat a good meal before you go.
Great Afternoon
, Apr 2021
What a wonderful experience. Our guide, Terry was amazing! I would recommend this tour for a fun filled afternoon!
