  1. Christina

    Awesome tour! We had the pleasure of having Richard tour us around and he was full of valuable knowledge and a wealth of interesting stories, he made the day so memorable. All of the stops we very unique and fun. My only wish is that the day didn’t go so fast! I was excited we got to see as many as 4 different locations but the end seemed to come so quick, especially since all of our fellow tour riders became friends!

  2. Joe Klem

    Our tour was fantastic. Michelle, our guide, was flexible in terms of how much time we wanted to spend at each of the 4 locations and she stayed in touch smartly via texts. While driving, she kept us engaged with stories of the area and what’s happening with arts, recreation, the music scene — pretty much anything we were interested in, she was, too. It was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.

  3. Ken Klem

    Really had a great time. We seem to have hit the tour guide jackpot, with Michelle, who was engaging, informative, flexible… and held a genuine concern for our comfort. Our tour group meshed immediately, making the afternoon all the more pleasing. Thank you Wish Wish and thank you Michelle.

  4. Lena Nebel

    We had a great time! Michelle was awesome and very accommodating. The locations were great and Michelle provided a lot of information about the area and the various stops. Highly recommend!

  5. Kelli

    Not a very good experience. I absolutely loved the wishwish wine tour last year, and was hoping for the same great experience. Unfortunately our guide, Mark, gave us no information as to what we were supposed to do or where to go, just dropped us off at each stop and told us when he’d be back. There was a lot of confusion and walking around trying to determine where to go. Each bar/brewery just asked what you wanted to drink, didn’t have any time to describe the different beers you were going to select. The cidery was beautiful, though.
