A Taste of Luxury with Cville Tours & Lexus of Richmond

A Taste of Luxury with Cville Tours & Lexus of RichmondA Taste of Luxury with Cville Tours & Lexus of Richmond

As you guys probably saw, last week Jason & I took a little day trip out to Charlottesville and it was so nice to get out one last time before baby. Cville Tours and Lexus of Richmond have teamed up for the second year in a row to offer guests a new kind of luxury. The Taste of Luxury partnership enhances three of their most popular tours by allowing guests to experience the craftsmanship of Lexus firsthand, and we couldn’t have been more excited to try it out!

We were really excited to check out one of the Taste of Luxury tours and enjoy some time together for a couple of hours. Cville Tours offers three tours fueled by Lexus that run May to November; the Behind the Scenes Wine Tour, Vineyard Horseback Riding with VIP Wine Tasting Tour and Gearhart Chocolate Experience. These experiences are tailored to offer a highly curated culinary journey. We chose to do the Gearhart Chocolate Experience, and loved every minute of our private tour!

Just as scheduled at 11am, we were picked up from our house in a beautiful Lexus LS and on our way to Charlottesville. With these experiences, all guests are chauffeured to and from in a 2018 Lexus LS or LX.

We were immediately impressed by the gorgeous car and felt so spoiled to be chauffeured. Even my husband who loves driving thought it was extremely relaxing and loved playing around with all the bells and whistles in the backseat of the car. He was like a kid in a candy store, and I was laid back in the most comfortable seats hanging out and enjoying myself!

Our driver, Andre, was so kind and friendly. We really enjoyed talking to him and getting to know more about him, the tour and the car on our way to the tour. He had menus ready for us to look at, so we were able to pick out what we wanted for lunch, which he went out and got for us later on during the tour.

We arrived at Gearhart Chocolates and met the man behind the name, Tim Gearhart! We got to tour the cafe, learn about chocolate behind the scenes, and even make our own chocolates and taste them. There were a few moments where I felt like I was on an episode of I Love Lucy, trying to make chocolates like I knew what I was doing, but Tim was so knowledgeable and made the whole experience so much fun. We rolled and decorated our own truffles, and got to dip some chocolate as well. We joked the whole time that our 5 year old, Blaire, would even love this experience and probably want to dip her hands in everything, but we brought her home some handmade chocolates instead 🙂

After a really fun and very private tour, our driver Andre had our hot lunch waiting for us, and it was the perfect little end to our day date and the tour. We were never rushed, felt so important and special being there, and still had the ride back to enjoy as well. We were both really impressed and I wish I would have found out about Cville Tours sooner! Any of these experiences would make such a great birthday gift, anniversary present, or just something super different and fun to do with your friends or your spouse!

Thank you to Cville Tours & Lexus of Richmond for this wonderful and luxurious experience, and for sponsoring this post!

    What a great way to explore Richmond! My parents always had Lexuses when I was growing up so I can attest to the quality of the cars!
