I had the chance to travel with Guy on a dream trip through Alaska. And while the trip was chock full of once in a lifetime experiences (Glacier landing! Bear sightings! Northern lights!), having Guy as our tour leader just took it off the charts. From the time we landed my husband and I didn't have to give a single thought to details of the trip.

What sticks out most to me about traveling with Guy is how fun and joyfully silly yet astonishingly informative he makes traveling. Between the smiles and laughter, jokes, funny stories and witty observations about the local environment and culture, Guy weaves in the type of interesting, insider knowledge and fascinating historical background that make traveling with a top-tier guide so worthwhile.

What a wonderful extended weekend on the Walla Walla Wine Train - relaxing, beautiful views, wonderful food and wine. The tour was professional, fun, and informative. We can't wait for the next one! Thank you!
Robin excels in anything she is involved in and she always sets the bar high. On top of her professionalism, she is a great person by heart. Even if you interact with her for the first time you will not realize that you don’t know her.

We had a great time on the tour. The train ride was gorgeous! The hotels were charming. I loved that both hotels were in the heart of town, walking distance from so many interesting spots. The breakfast buffets at each hotel were good and so convenient!

Beyond the train ride through the Cascade Mountains and traveling through the high desert of Central and Western Washington to Walla Walla, there was an array of wonderful wines and some fine dining on a tour created by Guy and Robin Glaeser.

Comparing Two Northwest Wine Regions
We wanted to see what happened when we took two cities in the Pacific Northwest connected by Alaska Airlines flights and pursued a common theme across both. Could we comfortably pull off a wine tasting, trail running weekend? In this, the first of a series of City Pairs, we chose two notable wine regions and tasted our way through a three-day, two-state vineyard voyage. Mornings were paired with trails and seclusion. Afternoons were wine and food. The trip was out of the ordinary but in my top five.Read More

Oregon Trail Meets Washington Wines : Group touring offers this traveler a new approach to adventure
Typically not a group traveler, I was intrigued by this concept, and felt it might be a great way to gain a deeper understanding of my new home state. Right after booking the four-night trip, I could already see I was going to enjoy the guided experience. When planning a vacation, my Type A modus operandi is to do extensive research on everything from the perfect place to stay to the best brunch. But that was all done for me, which felt liberating—my only job on this vacation was to enjoy it.Read More

Innovation and Washington State
Innovation, Wine and the State we live in.
Innovation in Washington State has taken on many forms, from airplanes to apples. It normally starts in the brain and finds its way to the fingertips. And sometimes a bottle. In a world before Kale Chips, really smart people have been making delicious treats from the bounty of this amazing state we live in. Washington's wines routinely showcase this ingenuity by receiving more high (90+) scores than the other major US wine producers and even France. If this were Olympics the Evergreen State would lead the medal count.Read More

What To Do in Walla Walla
We’re always excited to show tours around the town we call home. Part Pacific Northwest hip part Old West charm, we think Walla Walla’s got it all. We’ll be exploring the wine, art and farm-to-table dining of this wheat and wine community, as well as the rich history of the town, one of the oldest in Washington and an early stop-over on the Oregon Trail.
Looking for what to do, eat, drink and see on your downtime in town? We’ve got some ideas:
Old proverb states "Don't put new wine into old bottles". With harvest just around the corner, we find the conversion chart to be helpful in putting the process in perspective.Read More
