Hi James,
Thank You for helping to make a wonderful trip for our Girl’s Weekend Reunion. We really enjoyed all the wineries you chose and lunch was perfect.  It was really the best day one could ask for. I will highly recommend you to anyone I know looking for your service in Oregon.
Thanks again,

Thank you so much for the photos you sent. Although a rainy day, we were able to enjoy the gorgeous falls and the sights easily with your help! The photos will serve as memories of a lovely morning.
Many Thanks,
Rhea Coskey


I cannot thank you enough for the photos. I smile each time I look at them and remember the 2 days we spent with you. Not only did you share your knowledge and enthusiasm, but you did it with style and grace.
Thank you again.


From the Roy Family

Hi James. Gosh, it is just now that all of my family has gone from the holiday together. I think the highlight of our Xmas this year was our day in the wine country and our night with Liz and Jacque at ‘A Tuscan Estate’. We really had a wonderful time. Thank you for the pictures. They are a wonderful reminder of our very lovely time. Many thanks and we shall certainly use you again. I may call on you for additional wine info.

Many thanks,
Michele Roy, Dave and all of the family!!!!!!


Hi James.
We had a wonderful time. The pictures turned out great. We appreciate you including the extra ones of the wineries. I hung the rose picture on the wall above our wine rack. It seemed appropriate with all the Oregon wine we now have. Thank you for making our vacation so special. We hope to see you sometime in the future.

James, I got some feedback from the Sales reps who said the wine trip
was a smashing success and they especially liked the driver!

Thank you for sending the photos. They are fabulous!!! We had such a wonderful time……you made the day special for us.
Take care, Kerry


Thank you so much for the pictures. They are great! They are a wonderful memory of the great tour you took us on. We had a great time.

Thank you very much for the photos!  (A beautiful lady and a beautiful backdrop sure make for beautiful photos.)

Emily and I certainly enjoyed our time with you this past Saturday.  We even took you up on a few of your suggestions after you dropped us off.  We had a cab pick us up at Pittock and drop us off at 23rd.  We had lunch at Typhoon (“Death by Asparagus” was awesome!) and dessert at Haydn’s (we enjoyed the “Sampler” and sat under a photo of a Dutch castle – Kasteel de Haar – that we had visited while in the Netherlands).

All in all we had a wonderful time.
We wish you all the best and will contact Beautiful Willamette Tours the next time we’re up in Portland!


A letter sent to the Concierge at the Downtown Marriott Hotel
Dear Scott:
As I promised, I am finally getting a chance to email you about my husband’s and my wine tour that you organized for us for last Friday. We can’t thank you enough for setting it up for us! James, who was our tour guide, was an absolute gentleman, very friendly, kind, had wonderful ideas, and may I add was a wonderful driver. He first took us to a cute little restaurant to pick up sandwiches and a dessert that were all very good. You must understand that I do not like sandwiches, so my saying that they were very good means that they were fabulous. The winery that we most wanted to go to was Adelsheim because we love their wines and buy them in the Chicago-land area, so James took us there first. He also took us to other large and small wineries where everyone was very informative and friendly. We had the sandwiches that James had bought for us outside of a winery where we sat and enjoyed the beautiful scenery for a while. James took pictures of us at every winery which was a wonderful touch and can’t wait to get them from him. When we were driven back to the hotel after our tour, James gave me a rose that is still alive and beautiful. He gave my husband a lovely pocket knife, scissor and screwdriver set. The whole day was a huge success to say the least. (You could even say it was romantic. :)) Thank you so very much for organizing the trip for us! We will never forget it!

Thank you, James, for the photos and the tour last week.
I wanted to say that your little gift of the knife set came in rather handy last night in Anacortes. We were staying in a motel there, when we got locked in the room. The lock had jammed. The only way out was a rescue from the fire department, or to use the screw driver on the knife set to remove the lock, which is what we finally did, once Judy remembered that we had it in our suitcase!
So thanks again, James. We had a great time!
