Day 1
Explore Charlottesville, Virginia

Board your spacious, video, and restroom equipped motorcoach and set off to Charlottesville, Virginia. 

Once we reach Charlottesville, Virginia, our first stop with be Monticello.   Monticello is more than just Thomas Jefferson's former living quarters; it's also an architectural masterpiece. First-time visitors are amazed by the majesty of the mansion and the 5,000-acre grounds and frequent guests like to return for in-depth history lessons on the American Revolutionary period, the role of slavery in the prosperity of the United States and more.

After touring Monticello, we'll enjoy a late lunch at Michie Tavern.  Michie Tavern accommodated travelers with food, drink, and lodging more than 200 years ago.  Servers in period attire offer bountiful Southern Midday Fare. The rustic restaurant setting renders a lunch dining experience rich in southern culture and hospitality for families to enjoy. Get a taste of the 18th-century as we feature a buffet of southern fried chicken, marinated baked chicken, hickory-smoked pork barbecue, stewed tomatoes, black-eyed peas, buttermilk biscuits and so much more. 

After lunch,  we'll travel to Mount Ida Reserve's Tasting Room and Taphouse for a wine tasting.  The Tasting Room & Taphouse is situated atop Mount Ida Reserve’s secluded 7,000 acre sanctuary, in the rolling hills of High Ridge. The prefect backdrop for enjoying great wine. 

After our tasting, we’ll depart home. A perfect time to chat with your friends about all the fun things you’ve done, the great sights you’ve seen and where your next group trip will take you!

We had a wonderful time. The trip was well organized. The boat trip to the island was great. We saw only a few ponies because they were hiding between trees for shade. However, we got to see several dolphins swimming around the boat which stopped for us to take pictures. The bus tour of Chincoteague was very informative and interesting. Thanks Andre for adding that piece. The Crab fest was fantastic! Food was surprisingly good. Crabs were delicious. Discover Chincoteague Island Trip was clearly a five star trip.

Great time, and well organized trip.

I had a wonderful day!! Next time I'd love for a person from the winery to tell us how they make the wines. I'd love to learn more of their story. The winery itself looked so beautiful. The people I sat with were so nice. One lady actually showed us how to taste the wines we were offered. It was a nice relaxing ride down to the winery and everyone there was just having a great time. The weather was perfect for this event. Not a cloud was in sight. To top it all off the wines were delicious!!! I'd love to go again and get a tour.
