Your safety and the safety of our guides and community is of the utmost importance. To that end, we’ve taken a close look at our policies and procedures and have updated protocols for each tour, service, and experience we offer.
The following points are specific to Winery Tours:
Private Tours Available:
Concerned about joining a public tour? No worries! Private winery tours for your group are available daily pending guide/driver availability.
Sanitation of Transportation:
The interior of every vehicle is fogged with a special sanitizing solution prior to every tour. All touchable surfaces, handrails etc, are cleaned and sanitized throughout the day.
All drivers will be required to wear masks until advised otherwise by the CDC and will complete a health screening questionnaire as recommended by the CDC and mandated in our county.
All wineries will operate according to regulations mandated by local/federal government, CDC, and industry standards. Modifications may include reduced occupancy, tables and tasting areas set up with social distancing requirements in mind, limited use of indoor spaces, increased cleaning/sanitation protocols, and more. If you have specific questions or concerns, we are happy to take your questions to our winery partners. Just let us know!
Out of respect for our guides/drivers, face coverings will be required when in the vehicle. Your driver will alert you if face coverings are required in wineries along the way. Note that some counties are mandating coverings while others are not. Thanks for your patience, understanding, and compliance as we all navigate this uncertain time together.
We’re committed to doing our part to care for our employees, community, and guests and we cannot do it alone. As part of our shared responsibility, we expect you to: communicate clearly with us regarding any health concerns you may have; if you feel ill, have Covid related symptoms, or have recently cared for someone with Covid-19, please stay home and alert us 24hrs or more in advance when possible (we will issue you a refund in full); be patient with, understanding, and supportive of new procedures in place. These policies are meant to keep all involved as safe as possible and to support our business in remaining open!

Hear what others have to say
This was such a wonderful experience! Nicole was wonderful, organized & so helpful while planning our girls trip. She listened to what our group wanted & made sure to give suggestions on what would be a great experience for us. I would DEFINITELY recommend Asheville Wellness Tours to everyone!
I found this concierge service & am so thankful. While planning my best friend's bachelorette party, I knew what she would like but did not know how to put it all together. Nicole was amazing & so prompt with every email. She broke down everything & was extremely patient. We combined a yoga hike with a winery tour via private transportation. It was so worth it! Sue Ann, our yoga instructor, was even sweet enough to take some nice group pictures for us. This is such a great concept. Would recommend it to anyone.
