Wine tours… It’s what we do!

Book your Finger Lakes Wine tour experience with us today. We offer tour packages for up to 6 people from 4-8 hours, as well as custom time frames as desired. Email ridewithpals@gmail.com (best way to contact), Facebook messenger, or call 315-420-1750 today and we’ll craft an experience for you! Please note: We are often on the road, so if you call we may not get back to you right away. Multiple staff have access to our Facebook and email so that’s more efficient for contact.

Update: February 18, 2022: We have begun with a busy 2022 season already. Some wineries will still require masks until seated but it is on a venue by venue basis. Please be sure to have a mask handy just in case. Currently Saturdays are booking up 10 weeks out and Fridays are at about 6-7 weeks. We highly encourage you to plan around those days and book a tour during the week. You will have a much more relaxed experience off of the busy tourist days. Please reach out if you have any questions before booking online, otherwise book away and we’ll see you soon!

Please read:

Most tasting rooms are having their own set of procedures and regulations, and many of these are unique to each venue. Many are limiting group sizes to 6 or less (some limit to 4) and many will require reservations. This doesn’t affect PALS as our limit is also 6 as our vehicles only have a capacity for 6 guests. While we have accommodated large groups in the past with larger vehicles and/or multiple vehicles, that practice will no longer be an option as we have found that larger groups are just not our thing. We also no longer operate any vehicles that can accommodate more than 6 guests and we are really not into accommodating large groups for any reason. Please see FAQ page for more details.
While most wineries are not requiring reservations there are still some that do. For most tours your driver will guide the day based on proximity to your location of stay and information provided at booking. We cannot guarantee a spot at any venue as we cannot control the availability at any given date or time. We will be expected to meet the reserved time at each place you do have reservations for as to not gum up the works at any of our friends tasting rooms. We will work very hard to make this new way of wine touring better than ever. We are excited to be out there helping our guests get the very best out of the Finger Lakes Wine Region. We love all of our Finger Lakes tasting rooms and the wonderful staff at each place. Please Email, Facebook message, or call us with any questions. Like our Facebook page for the most up to date information.

We offer gift cards in any denomination. You can purchase online or by phone. Please let us know if you have any questions if you’re unsure of the amount that will work for you.

Overview of our service

Our tours are customized to each client, we don’t follow a set route and we will work with each group to plan their day. You may plan a stop for lunch or a picnic. We encourage you to bring whatever snacks or non-alcoholic drinks you may want. We are a locally owned and operated Wine Tour and Car Service based out of Penn Yan, NY since 2013.

Wine tours have become our primary focus as we have built a reputation in the area as a top tour company. We pride ourselves on our relationships with all the wineries and breweries. Our primary focus is offering private, custom wine and beer tours in the Finger Lakes. We have worked to establish relationships with most of the tasting rooms around the area so we can provide the best experience possible. We spend time visiting each place with each one of our drivers so we may speak to the experience you will enjoy as we take you on your personalized tour. We pick up free of charge within 45 minutes of Penn Yan. This includes addresses in Geneva, Watkins Glen, and Hammondsport, NY.
For more info email ridewithpals@gmail.com. Office hours vary, the best form of contact is through email.

We also provide contract transportation for corporate accounts. If your company would like more information on this service, please send us an email with the details of the service your looking for and we will work with you to see if we can assist you.

Notes:

While we welcome last minute transportation requests, we are not an on call service. We require a minimum 24 hours advance notice and for planning purposes we prefer 48 hours notice. Some tasting rooms now require reservations for any size groups, for that reason we must have 48 hours notice for these groups so we may schedule your visit. We rarely make exceptions for pick up locations out side of the region. Please call for more information. We are based in Penn Yan, distance to pick up will be measured from there.  We are not an on demand service or on call service (taxi), all trips must be pre-booked.
