Blue Ridge Excursions Unlimited is here!

Since our founding in 2008, we at Blue Ridge Wine Excursions are proud to have earned the right to call ourselves the #1 provider of guided wine and brew tours in Charlottesville (be sure to check out our TripAdvisor Reviews). Going forward, we are excited to continue to introduce our clients to the vibrant community of artisans and innovators who make the Monticello Wine Trail such an amazing place to explore. As we look around Charlottesville however, we see so much more that we want to show our guests! Cville and the surrounding Piedmont region is such a special place, where people care deeply about where their food comes from, preserving the beauty of our rural and wilderness spaces, and honoring the history that continues to inform and shape the place we are lucky to call home.

With that bit of backstory, we are excited to introduce Blue Ridge Excursions Unlimited! We have crafted unique tours that give visitors a chance to dig deeper into this amazingly rich and vibrant region. Take a walk on hallowed ground. Trace your meal back to its source. Imbibe wine made in the tradition of our forefathers. Take a boat ride down a timeless waterway. Jump head first into foodie heaven. These are places you won't find on the standard Cville Tourist map, but are the makings of amazing memories.

Let us show you what gets us so excited about this town, won't you? Join us for a tour soon!

Shenandoah National Park Tour

Shendoah Driving Tour, Charlottesville Tour We just received the sweetest email from clients who were traveling from out of state and looking for a "bucket list" tour.

I don't know where to put this review so I am letting you do it. I am from Colorado and seeing all the National Parks in the U.S. There are 59 and Shenandoah National Park was my 58 to see.  I contacted Albemarle Limousine and you gave me Bit to show me the park and he was five star.  It was a marvelous tour and Bit is very knowledgeable about the area and a wonderful driver.  My husband and I just sat back and enjoyed every minute of the trip.  Bit took us to a wonderful little deli for our picnic lunch and we ate it at picnic spot in the park.  We could not have done this without Albemarle Limousine.  My husband is 85 and I am 82.  We visited 4 parks on this trip and completed our Bucket List. Tell Bit we loved his info and great personality.  I wished we could have stayed longer.
