Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I highly recommend Albemarle Limousine for their Charlottesville private wine tours. We were picked up by Rob in a Mercedes E class sedan, he was amazing throughout the trip, great conversations, a safe drive, and he made sure we were comfortable. We spent plenty of time at each winery (1+ hr) and made it easily on time to each winery.

Communications before and during the trip were exceptional - we received several timely reminders, and their sales team was on top of everything that needed to be done to make our trip perfect. We worked on an itinerary together and made reservations early and as necessary. I didn't have to stress about anything at all!

A group of 11 of us did a custom wine tour and had a fabulous time, from planning through execution. We were regularly followed up with before the trip to ensure we had our itinerary, made reservations, etc. Our driver, David, was wonderful - he showed up on time, checked in on us and took pictures at each winery, and let us play our own music between vineyards. This is my second time using Albemarle Limousine, and I would not hesitate coming back!

We used Blue Ridge Wine Excursions for my Bachelorette Party and it was absolutely amazing!!! The party bus we traveled in was great, had fun lights and we were able to play our own music. Our Bachelorette Tour included 3 wineries, an AMAZING charcuterie type lunch, and multiple course dinner at a nice restaurant in Charlottesville. The value of what we paid was definitely worth it. There were 8 people total in our party so at each winery we decided on 2-3 bottles that we could share (did not do tastings because of COVID limitations). Gillie our tour guide was literally the best. He was so sweet and even gave a couple of us sea bands because we got a little car sick in the beginning. Gillie made sure we had the best photos at all of our stops and we had everything we needed the entire trip. Highly, highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Charlottesville!

I did a Saturday 12-5pm wine tour for 12 people on a 14 passenger tour bus. The bus seemed newer, clean, and there was plenty of room to store ice chests/portable chairs in the back. The driver (Daryl) was over 10 minutes early, which was great. He was very knowledgeable about the area, gave great recommendations, and actually called ahead to our upcoming wineries to check on the weather (since there were a few showers around the area that day). We did not prompt him to go out of his way to do these things, which was refreshing. Overall this was an outstanding experience.

We had the best wine tour experience for my birthday. Gillie was prompt and could not have been nicer or more accommodating. It snowed unexpectedly and he had no trouble navigating and was on time for every winery reservation. He even offered me his jacket and was very concerned that I didn’t have a jacket☺️ His customer service was outstanding and I was also incredibly pleased with the help I received from the office when making suggestions of wineries to attend with our size group. Thank you for making my birthday weekend so special!

This event was a custom wine tasting tour that exceeded my expectations. From my poorly sketched agenda, the team helped to refine driving and visit times to be a very workable itinerary. The chauffeur, Bill Tracey, provided a highly professional, memorable experience. Beginning the day before, Bill drove out to the remote pickup location to confirm the details, again from sketchy instructions. He performed enough field research along unmarked roads, and unmarked addresses to determine precisely where he should start the tour. More than a driver, Bill was host who provided pamphlets and a book describing the wineries in detail. At each stop on the tour he became a tour guide to highlight each property, describing its history and to point out interesting facts along the way. He served as a concierge who spoke to the winery staff upon arrival to introduce the tour and the requested service. And finally, at each stop he was eager to collect souvenir glasses and handy with the camera to capture the moment. Many thanks for an excellent experience.

What a great time! Our driver, Bianca, was amazing. She came prepared for everything, knew the area very well, and was so incredibly friendly and warm and wonderful to talk to. We loved Bianca! The limo van itself was great - super comfy and spacious! We did the 12 passenger limo-style van - the seats face each other like they would in a normal limosuine, but it's larger like the size of a van. Fun lights inside on the ceiling and floors! You can connect your phone and play music (definitely would bring an aux cable though in case the service is bad in the area where you're driving that causes bluetooth connection issues). Highly recommend!!!!

I was in the area for a girls trip and we booked a tour with Mr. Bill. He was an incredible driver and so helpful throughout! He not only delivered us safely and efficiently to each winery, but he helped with the snacks, gave us tips for each venue, took great group pictures and made sure we had everything we need. He went so far above and beyond we’ve already started talking about booking our next tour!

My bestie and I decided to return to Charlottesville to go wine tasting and celebrate her birthday. She found Albemarle Limousine Blue Wine Excursions. Gillie Jenkins was our fantastic chauffeur. He was punctual, kept us on schedule and was flexible, all at the same time. His car was clean and comfortable. He was very kind and pleasant, and very knowledgeable of all the vineyards in the area. We had good conversations and a lovely day of wine tasking. I highly recommend Blue Ridge Wine Excursions and have Gillie be your chauffeur for a perfect day of wine tasting. Such a treat!

We had an amazing time on our tour. Gillie was very knowledgeable and even with our 3 kids in tow was able to keep us on time for each one of our reservations. The bus arrived early and was very clean and comfortable. I highly recommend using this service if in the area for all of your transportation needs. If you get Gillie as a driver, you’re guaranteed to have an amazing experience. A+++!!
