Each location had their own servers. Some were funny some were more direct. I appreciate the people who made it an experience more than pouring a drink. Definitely have to pace yourself for this tour.

Tasting, Talking and Time Together
Bridget_W, Jun 2023
We had a really fun time. Our van driver, Dustin was funny and knowledgeable. We became fast friends with everyone on the trip. We even had dinner with one of the couples. All of the bartenders were fun, except the man at the orchard winery, we felt that he was rude.
Great moonshine/wine tour!
Jennifer_L, Jun 2023
We had so much fun on this trip!! Our driver Dustin was so nice and hilarious! It’s great because you aren’t rushed and can spend as much time as you like at each place. Highly recommend this trip…but beware, the moonshine is sting and there’s A LOT!!!!! Lol
Great way to drink through Pigeon Forge!

Our tour guide dustin made the experience. Kept all 11 of us engaged and laughing throughout. We had a great mix of people. After 8 different tastings we were pretty buzzed. Worth the money.
It was just my wife and...
Ken_D, Jun 2023
It was just my wife and myself that went in this bus tour. There ended up being one other couple and a family group of seven. As we went from stop to stop, our driver, Dustin, gave us a bit if a history tour as was very informative as of what the next stop would entail. As the stops got more and more. We all started to have more and more fun. I finally asked who was Dustin’s co-pilot riding in the passenger seat. She introduced herself as Pam. And told me that she was hoping to get hired on as a tour driver. After we left the second to last stop, Dustin explained how the last stop would work. This is when we started to thank him with a chant of his name that lasted for two city blocks. Then we welcomed Pam into the fun and also gave her a chant. Followed by another chant telling Dustin to “hire her”. Towards the last couple of turns I Arnold the group that we should all stick around for a group picture that Dustin was more than happy to take for us. We would definitely take your tour again with the experience that we had.
