Fun experience! The tasting lines can be long so it was worth the tour to be able to skip to the front. Several cocktails are included plus a discount at each location. I would recommend this tour for anyone looking to have some fun and get a little tipsy!
Great experience

We had a great time on this tour, The meal was good but the shine, wine, and tour operator made it a great experience. We would highly recommend this experience.
Disappointing and overpriced
Julia_M, Jan 2024
This tour was disappointing and overpriced. Despite there being over a dozen moonshine and wine spots along the strip for this tour, we visited exactly two (with a 20 minute walk between them). No wine stop at all. And we were not told of the change until we arrived, despite the tour guide texting us with other information 24 hours before the tour started. We would have cancelled if we had known of the change, which I assume is why they didn’t tell us in advance. Also our tour guide seemed like she wanted to be anywhere except on the tour. Very disappointing and do not recommend.
Great experience

The evening was wonderful. Jen was awesome. The three places we visited we so much fun! We would recommend this experience to everyone!
Kimberly_W, Sep 2023
Jenn was great!! Our group was amazing we all connected really well. I had to leave early due to illness but Jenn made sure we was taken care of and didn't miss the last stop of the tour. They allowed us to come in the next day to do our last tasting. Cannot say enough great things.
Response from Host, Sep 2023
I am so glad you were able to go back and do that last tasting!! You will have to come back and celebrate your one year anniversary with us next year :p
It’s too expensive to try
Isun_G, Aug 2023
Well, our tour guide was so nice and sweet, but in general this tour was too expensive to try!wine parts Was the best but other 2 bars🙃
Response from Host, Sep 2023
Hello! I am sorry our tour did not meet your expectations. The price of the tour is about as much as you'd pay to taste at each location but the tour gives you an upper level of service and front of line access, etc. I believe the price of the tour is very fair for all the perks, discounts, tastings, cocktails, etc. that you get ! I hope you had a great time on the rest of your trip and find some other activities that are more suited for you.
One of the best experiences in downtown

This was a very fun evening. I had no idea that I would actually like moonshine. Mike and Jen were great. Highly recommend.
Great Drinking Tour!

Brenda_P, Feb 2023
Our guide was delightful. Tasting places were great Eat before you go!! I especially liked our servers at all the stops. Plus our group was from Louisiana except for one person. Great time
A fun Drinking walk
Lynn_H, Nov 2022
Jenn was so nice and a good guide. We expected to learn more about how moonshine is made and would not have known the difference between moonshine and whiskey had we not asked. Not a bad thing but is pretty much a drinking tour. We finished an hour early and were moved to the tasting before we finished our cocktails at the last stop at Sugarland Distillery. We had a great small group of eight and were having fun talking and getting to know them and would have liked that to continue longer. We were told we could finish our drinks at the tasting and come back to bar afterwards if we wanted. Unfortunately that did not happen :) A good experience overall!
Great experience…pace yourself!
Barbara_G, Sep 2022
Great guide. Prepped us for the evening. Good place. LOTS to taste. Pace yourself. I’m a beer drinker and still really enjoyed this experience.
Response from Host, Sep 2022
Thank you for the review!!! Good to know that you still enjoyed even though its not your usual drink of choice. See you next time!!
The tour was excellent...
Kelly_G, Jul 2022

Jennifer, our host did such an amazing job! I can’t stop talking about the tour and how everyone connected. She did so good and keeping us interacting with each other. The distillery servers were so engaging with us all it was amazing. We had such an awesome time. I would suggest this tour to anyone. Thank you
Tipsy Tastings!
Erica_H, Jul 2022
So much fun! We went to three different spots and they definitely did not skimp out on the amounts you get to try! Definitely eat before the tour! Haha We stopped at two moonshine locations and a winery, all three of which were very tasty. They had a wide variety of flavors so there was something for everyone!
Fun time touring Wine & Shine
Alonzo_S, Jun 2022
Tour guide was an absolute pleasure! Our Sugarlands bartender was high energy and funny. Can’t wait to return!
Great Evening
Mindy_B, May 2022
Jenn was great! The tour provides the opportunity to sample a variety of wines and moonshine and meet some new people along the way! A fun way to spend your evening in Gatlinburg!
A Taste of Gatlinburg
Miranda_T, Apr 2022
The whole experience was great! This was one of the best experiences that we had in Gatlinburg. Jen was a great tour guide, she took us to three awesome tasting locations. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to visit the best places on the strip.
