My wife and I traveled to Dubuque to celebrate my 70th birthday. While researching activities prior to our visit, I came across information on this service and, after contacting the owner settled on one of the tours. We couldn't have made a better choice. The driver (and owner) picked us up at our hotel and, after picking up some more... More

Dennis was a great tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about the wineries and was very attentive! He also took us to a great place called Council Hill Station at the end. That was a blast!! Thank you, Dennis!

I recently booked this tour for my sisters Bachelorette and it didn't disappoint. Dennis was super knowledgable about each winery and a great host. We were welcomed at each winery and everything flowed nicely. The supplied bottled water for the bus was a bonus. The wine and lunch was great. A must do for all wine lovers.

I have gone on tours with Iowa Wine Tours twice.Once as part of a bachelorette group in August of 2015 and then with my husband for my birthday in Sept of 2016. Both times were great. I'm a big wine enthusiast and fan of the Galena area. This is my idea of a perfect day. Lunch, tastings and transportation are... More

Had a lovely day with Dennis who was an excellent host and very knowledgeable. The Wineries were very welcoming. Great day out not just for tasting the wines but also for travelling around the surrounding area

Nothing special and nothing bad. Pick up from hotel was convenient. Don't have to worry about drinking and driving which is good so no designated driver to choose within your travel group. The three wineries were prepared for us when we got there and we were able to get in and out without any issues.

I booked this trip for my friends bachelorette party for something to do during the day! We had a blast! I would definitely recommend it! It's a great price, super convenient that they pick you up from your hotel, and we had great pizza!! We can't wait to do it again!

We always have a great time sampling wine around Galena. It's even better when you have a friendly, knowledgeable tour guide and safe transportation to really enjoy the experience. Highly recommend!

One of the activities that we'd planned and booked in June for our September trip was a Saturday afternoon wine tour. On Friday, September 2nd, the day before the tour, Dennis Dieters told us that our 4 hour tour of... More

Our driver (Dennis) was on time, friendly, knowledgeable, and very easy to work with. We went to 3 wineries in the Galena countryside and Dennis prepped us with information about each one before we arrived. I would recommend this to anyone looking to spend the day seeing the wineries of Galena. Having Dennis drive us made this a worry-free, very... More
