Greater Rochester Region Wine, Beer, and Sightseeing Tours

Leave the driving to us! Experience our part of Upstate New York in a luxury, 6-passenger Cadillac Escalade ESV. We pick you up at your location in Rochester or surrounding suburbs and deliver you back at the end of your tour.

Our private, small-group tours go to more intimate venues so you can explore in a way you can't when you're on a big tour bus. Plus, your driver-guide can show you hidden gems, pull over for that photo op, or linger longer at a spot you're enjoying! You can stop to pick fruit in season or chat with brewers and winemakers.

Let us show off the best of our region, while creating memories you’ll want to share over and over. Join us on one of our Rochester area wine, beer, and sightseeing tours and experience upstate - up close and personal!
