This was a great day and so easy as Jim takes care of all the details. At each winery, we walked in an started tasting . . . no long lines, nothing to pay for (except the bottles you buy!). It was great to arrive early in the morning and have a beautiful carefree fun day. The buffet lunch was perfectly arranged and tasty. The bus clean and fun!! And all the places we stopped were perfectly timed. We ended at the Osprey and the music was coming on, the firepits were going. We got to spend an 1 1/2 there alone which was great. We even stopped at a farm stand on the way back to train. And of course no worries about drinking and driving . . . so its easy for us to buy a bottle to enjoy around the fire pit.
We had the best time . . . perfect fall day. We will definetly be returning in the Spring.
This was an awesome experience! Had so much fun on my best friend's joint bachelorette party with her fiancé. Both brides enjoyed every minute of their day and so did everyone else on the trip.
I can't imagine having a better tour. From the punctual pick up, immaculate transportation, delicious lunch, attention to detail and constant communication with the owner to ensure I received everything I was looking for....it had been 8 years since the first time I used this company and I will continue to remain loyal. Thanks Jim for making my special celebration special!!
This was a great way to spend a beautiful fall day! Jim did a great job of laying out all the logistics, and providing specific details regarding our tour. He was knowledgeable about the area, and told us what to expect at each winery. He was really on point!!!! Jim was hilarious, personable, and genuine. The bus was on time, it was clean, and even had a outlet to charge phones. The bus driver was helpful as each person stepped off the bus.
We went to 3 wineries, each more beautiful than the other. Pugilisi,
The Duck Walk, and Osprey's .....were amazing places!! I really enjoyed Osprey, not only for the wine, but I was impressed with the landscape, and the live band....it was a family friendly environment. My only disappointment was lunch, it was below my expectations. Overall, the experience was great and I recommend this tour.
I went out to the wineries this weekend with Long Island wine tours for my best friends 25th birthday and had a great time!! Jim was so much fun and such a pleasure to work with! Jim came over to us from the first winery to the pie farm and was so friendly! We went to three different wineries and ate an amazing lunch at duck walk vineyards! It was so beautiful and really enjoyed my first experience out at the wineries . I will definitely use this company for my 25th birthday !! Thank you for everything you did to make my best friends birthday a great one!
Went out to the wineries with Long Island Wine Tours this past weekend and had an amazing time!!! It was for my friends birthday so I had a part in planning and Jim was a pleasure to work with! So accommodating and fun. He made sure we had a party bus with plenty of extra room for our group and he gave us a great price. We went to 3 wineries and didn't have to worry about a thing-everything was taken care of for us, including lunch! It made the day such a breeze and it was that much more enjoyable. If you're thinking of heading out to the wineries, definitely go with Long Island Wine Tours!!! The best!!!!
I can't even begin to say all the great things about this wine tour! Jim was amazing from the start! He made sure everything was perfect to celebrate my 25th birthday! He made sure I had a great day and all my friends were enjoying themselves . The bus arrived early at my house and was so clean we even had Bluetooth on the bus to play our own music!

Thank you, Jim, for a such a great experience! We were so excited for a fun day - and our expectations weren't only met, but were far, far exceeded! The Long Island Wine Tours team is knowledgeable, well-connected, and so friendly! I would highly recommend this tour company, and look forward to coming back for another tour soon!
Had a great day with my friends tasting Long Island wines and have Long Island Wine Tours to thank! From booking to tasting, it was a seamless experience. The party bus was amazing and Marty, our driver, went above and beyond to keep us on point and on schedule! I highly recommend this tour company over any limo service. They know the wineries and the ins and outs of the east end. Top notch service !
I would like to thank Jim and Marty for making my 30th Birthday Surprise a great trip out to the vineyards for me and my friends. They did an excellent job despite the snow storm, they made sure everything went smoothly. I would highly recommend Long Island Wine tours. Thank you again for an amazing birthday vineyard trip 🙂
Enjoyed the bus ride. Jim and John were awesome. The wine tasting and choices at Duckwalk winery, is the hot buffet lunch was worth !!!
Great post-birthday day trip for both myself and my sis/friend!!!
It was an amazing tour, wines were great, and that Apple Smoked Chedder Cheese...out of this world. Jim rocks and we certainly will be back!!
Had a great time with my girlfriend this past Saturday. 3 excellent wineries, a beautiful day, and the duo of Marilyn/Jim were exemplary. Thanks!
My girlfriend and I had a very memorable wine tasting getaway thanks to Jim and his crew. We took this tour after looking at a bunch of other options and definitely made the right decision. Jim has the "inside scoop" on all of the good vineyards and we were treated like regulars with Jim by our side. He bent over backwards to make sure that everyone was having a great time. Next time we're in North Fork, we'll be sure to give Jim a call.
This was the very best way to spend my 50th. Jim at Long Island Wine Tours made it so easy for my 16 friends and I to have such a great, memory filled day. From the very first moment I called to discuss my tour Jim planned everything perfectly and made it a day I will never forget. The driver of our beautiful party bus was so kind and helpful, he even made a stop for us we could buy pies!! I will definitely use Long Island wine tours again and recommend them for any celebration, large or small. �
LI Wine Tours is by far the best wine tour company I've experienced. Jim, the owner, is an absolute gem and not only is he knowledgeable, he's a genuinely nice person who truly cares about his business and his customers. I am looking forward to more wine tours with his company this Fall and next summer.
The Buffet was Delicious: This is our 3rd time using Jim and Long Island Wine Tours and let me say that everytime is a perfect day. Jim is one of the nicest and most accomodating people to work with and makes sure that every detail is taken care of. The drivers of the limo’s are top notch professionals and make sure that you arrive safely and on time to each stop. We have had Eric and Neil as drivers and both are fantastic. Buffet lunch was delicious again as always and second and third helping are always encouraged which is a nice thing. It is also great that the owner of the company is there to meet with you and personally make sure that everything is going smoothly. I can not say enough good things about Jim and the operation that he is running and I look forward to working with him many times in the future. If your debating on doing this my advice….Book It Now!!!!
Last Minute Trip: Did this as a last minute girls trip. Was awesome! Highly recommend this company. Will use them again for sure!

Third Times a Charm: What could be better than being chauffeured around all day, tastings at 3 vineyards and lunch included?! Long Island Wine Tours is a great way to enjoy yourself responsibly 😉 We’ve used this service 3 times now, and it seems to get better and better each time. Jim is great at setting everything up and making sure your day at the wineries is worry free. He has always worked with us on including wineries that we’ve requested as well. And the hot lunch buffet option is worth every penny – the food is plentiful and delish. We have also had great experiences with our drivers. They really make sure you’re taken care of throughout the day, and keep everything running smoothly.
I give the whole thing Two Thumbs Up!!
Can’t wait for the next trip!
Beautiful Day on the North Fork: We planned a wine tour for my friend’s 25th birthday and had no idea what to expect. My group could not have been more pleased with the customer service, organization, and quality provided by Long Island Wine Tours! We enjoyed three different wineries, a delicious lunch, and had the best driver (Al) at our service! Thank you Jim and the LIWT staff for a great day! 🙂 I recommend this company to anybody looking for a beautiful day on the North Fork.

Best Birthday Ever: My friends surprised me with a wine tour for my birthday and it was the best birthday ever! It was perfect from beginning to end – door to door service with stops at 3 different wineries, lunch and ending with a stop at Briermere’s where we got some delicious pies. Our driver, Tom, couldn’t be more accommodating,making sure everything was taken care of. I would definitely recommend this company.

Annual Trip: What an amazing day we had. Jim did an awsome job with tours. Lunch was also very good. It was just what we needed after our boat ride from CT. I would highly recommend to everyone. This will become an annual trip for us. You can’t go wrong.

Dad’s Birthday Was Great: Hi Jim, I just wanted to thank you again for arranging such a great tour on Saturday of Laurel Lake, Osprey’s Dominion and Vineyard 48. My entire family had such a great time and my father’s birthday was very memorable. I can’t thank you enough for being so flexible with your scheduling following our cancellation in August because of a death in the family. Our driver, Freddy, was extremely accommodating (especially with my two little kids) and very friendly. He made the trip so enjoyable. It was well worth the wait and we will definitely be returning! Good luck with the remainder of the season!
With much appreciation, Samantha
