I Want to Rent an Entire Bus for a Custom Wine Tour Experience, What are My Options?
We would love to have you rent one of our buses. Email me so we can work out the details!
Can the Locations that We Visit Change?
Yes, they can. Due to unforeseen circumstances, last minute changes may need to be made. If this is the case, chances are you will still not be disappointed. Our local wineries and vineyards are making some pretty great wine.
What is the Rule About Open Containers?
Please do not bring open containers of alcohol onto the bus. Our insurance can't take it.
I Had the Best Time of My Life, How Do I Tell People?
There are many ways you can tell everyone you loved your experience! One way is tagging us:
Instagram - @idahowinetours
Facebook - Visit our Facebook page here and write an amazingly positive review, then invite your friends to like the page. Also, we would suggest you even post pictures.

Is Speed Tasting a Crime?
Punishable by law, no. Idaho Wine Tours will try to provide sufficient time at each location so that you can appreciate your tasting, and get to learn about the people who surround you. So, if you finish in the first five minutes and end up spending the rest of your time standing around. That is a YP (Your Problem), tap the "brakes" and savor the experience that you paid for.
