The driver, Ms. Pam, was excellent! Friendly and accommodating. The wineries were beautiful and the wine was delicious!!! The only thing....I wanted more time in Helen to shop.
This tour was such a treat! We sampled 15 fabulous wines. I met great people on the tour. And Helen,Georgia was just the icing on the cake!
I had an amazing time on the wine tour. The bus ride was fun and comfortable! I will definitely be doing this again!!
Would have liked more time in Helen and less time was needed at wineries. Pam was great though.
So much fun. Great staff, and transportation
We did the North Georgia Wine Tour with a friend group of 7... overall it was great and we had an awesome time! The bus was very nice and clean with fancy leather seats. The wineries and driver were nice. All tastings included and everything went as planned. Bus played music videos there and back which kept everyone entertained... especially once they got some wine in them :) downsides- we wished each stop was a little longer so we got to enjoy the beautiful views and play corn hole/hang out. It felt rushed. 90 minutes would be perfect at each winery instead of 60. Also the stop in Helen was way rushed. By the time we got our food we had to wolf if down to make it back on the bus. Helen needs at least 2 hours. When we called the main office to say that we were running late because we had just gotten our food and asked him to call our driver they just said "can't you take your food to go?" That was a very rude and unprofessional response. I would recommend taking Helen out of the tour... it seems pretty pointless to drive all the way to Helen when there isn’t any time to walk around and explore. Instead I would recommend increasing the time at each winery by 30 minutes and then either telling people to bring their own lunch (we brought snacks anyways), providing a bagged lunch, or stopping at one of the wineries that had food options last. Overall I would recommend!
Great tour. Beautiful vineyards.
Well from the bus trip all the way to Helen Georgia was fantastic, the service was great, it was a good experience.

The bus driver was friendly & professional. The company needs to invest in new CD's so that the bus can have a better atmosphere, the CD skipped the majority of the ride, and it was really annoying. Also I would have loved to have spent more time in Helen, it didn't seem like enough time to really explore or do anything.
The shuttle was comfortable and nice. The host was very pleasant and informative. She was a wonderful guide through the towns and wineries.
Our driver Pam was very kind, professional, and punctual. The three wineries we toured, Kaya, The Cottage, and Cenita offered different experiences (in terms of ambiance and the tasting setup and wines) and the service at each establishment was Top Notch!!!! Learned A LOT about wines at Cenita by the man who conducted the tasting, very knowledgeable and he makes an excellent sangria smoothie.
It was a very nice tour. Seeing the hills were interesting, a super driver, great hospitality and a lot of fun.
DVD entertainment choice of MTV videos from the 80's didn't seem to go with the premise of the tour. In fact, it took away from the experience.
I really enjoyed myself. The first venue needs to be replaced. That was the worst part of the tour. The had great overpriced food, snobby workers, and they were not friendly or helpful. Other than that I had a blast. The second Venue was by far the best they were informative, friendly , and catered to our group. I would definitely love to do this again.
Pam was excellent
The lunch provided being at 3pm is wayyyyy too late after going to 3 wineries. We needed it to be in between and end with a winery! Also we allncould if used 30 more minutes at each location. The hour flies by when you are doing your tastings that you don’t get much time to enjoy the sceneries esp at the cottage since all the tastings are inside! Other than that great trip just needs to be a little longer and lunch at an appropriate time!
Definitely worth the money. I wish we could have stayed a little longer at each winery. It felt like we were rushing and scrambling all day. Maybe cut out one winery and spend more quality time at each. I also think stopping in Helen wasn't a great idea. People spread out in all directions and they were late back to the bus and it was tough to track them down. It was also very busy in Helen and tough to get into a restaurant and served lunch in the timeframe provided. We also didn't get there until 3pm which is too late for lunch. I think the stop in Helen should be cut out, perhaps include a sack lunch in the tour price closer to midday, and spend more time at each winery. All in all, it was enjoyable and worth the price but I think the itinerary and flow of the day could be improved
It was a great experience! Many sights for the price! The only recommendation I would have is a rep. To check people in at the hotel upon tour arrival! Other than that-FANTASTIC!
Drive was very nice and a good driver. The wineries were good ones with a lot of variety. I would suggest that you have some water on the bus.
We had a great time! The service was very smooth and provided a great experience!
Meeting location changes and crowded bus.
Pam was great and incredibly accommodating. The wineries chosen were fantastic!

The pick up was not clear as we were told 2 different locations - an email should have been sent to clarify the spot. Also it said outside Trader Vic’s but it was across the street and the bus was late because of a marathon which made it even more confusing. The tour guide was not very personable except on a one on one basis - the driver was very nice. We felt that one hour at the first 2 wineries was way to long and it would have been nice to have more time in Helen - we barely had time to eat and just a little time to visit the town - not long enough.
I was EXTREMELY satisfied with my first tour with Atlanta Sightseeing Bus Tours!! My North GA Wine Country Tour exceeded my expectations! Our tour guide Corey was GREAT! PERFECT choices for wineries!! I will be returning!
I thoroughly enjoyed the tour! Our driver, Cory, was as timely, cordial and safe. Although the day was overcast, drizzly and cold, the wine made me feel warm and toasty inside.
What an amazing experience! Our driver was absolutely wonderful. The wineries were amazing and friendly and delicious. I will highly recommend this tour to friends and anyone who asks. We had a great time and will definitely do it again! Thank you!
It was a great day all around! Especially loved Kaya Winerey - excellent good options there. Sommelier at Cenita Winery was very knowledgeable and really talked through the wine and helped educate guests. And you have to try the wine slushie there... they'll even give it to you in a to go cup to bring on the tour bus! Highly recommend bringing a small cooler or bag of snacks. Music videos played on the bus make it interactive and a ton of fun! Don't forget to tip your tour bus driver! Definitely a great experience!
We loved this trip. Perfect for a fun day-to-day activity with a few friends. All the wineries we visited were great and the ride there and back was easy with such a nice bus and helpful driver. We enjoyed this trip very much.
Wonderful experience, We have a good time with my friends 🍷🍷🍷👍😁
The wineries were great, but the best part was the ride! Corey was a great driver/tour guide! We all had so much fun!
This was an awesome tour. Our guide was very friendly and helpful. The scenery was beautiful. Love the North Ga Mountains. Highly recommend
