Perfect wine tour

We had our tour on Saturday Oct 17th. Our tour guide was extremely friendly and we felt safe being socially distant from everyone while sitting on the bus. All of the wineries were absolutely beautiful and look forward to doing another wine tour soon in Napa valley!

Best wineries are in Sonoma

The bus ride was very nice and comfortable. The wineries were gorgeous, but the best reside in Sonoma. The only complaint was that we were supposed to go to a different winery that we ended up at. All in all, a wonderful experience that everyone should have!!

Thank you for your review. Due to the chaotic nature surrounding covid-19 and the fires we have had to be agile with switching partner wineries. Our apologies for the switching of wineries.

This was the worst tour I have been on. The bus driver never said a word the entire trip. We were just dropped off at each stop no explanation or direction. No WIFI on the bus. This was a waste of our time. NEVER AGAIN!
icon Response from Host , Oct 2020
We appreciate all points of view! I am sorry your experience was not at all what you had hoped. After talking to you on the phone i believe we came to an understanding of how to accommodate you and others better in the future.

A wonderful way to spend the day! Sadly the thick fog prevented us from seeing the Golden Gate Bridge in all of its splendor, but it was an amazing excursion nonetheless!

Karl the Fog does prevent views of the Golden Gate Bridge at inopportune times. Appreciate the time you took to favorably review your experience! Our small business community in S.F. appreciate all patrons during this very trying time.

I had a great time! I was celebrating my birthday along with 9 other friends and decided it would be best to do this because we wanted everyone to be able to drink & enjoy themselves. We had so much excitement right when we got on the bus. But our tour guide was sending negative vibes from the start. I felt like I was being scolded by a parent the whole time. We all didn't think he even enjoyed his job, which made it very difficult for us to want to listen to him. For someone that is going to be guide a WINE tour where people will be drinking alcohol, you'd think he'd be a little more laid back and chill, or even happy. We weren't even that loud and he kept shushing us. A couple times he's mentioned very eerie details during the tour, like bringing up how many people have jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge and how San Franciscans would "gladly push you off" because there's already too many people in SF. It was a total buzzkill from my birthday celebration. Aside from that, we had a wonderful time. We made friends with another group that was also celebrating their birthday (Happy Birthday Courtney!) The winery choices were wonderful (Viansa, Madonna Winery and Sutter Home). We got to stop in the little downtown in Yountville and had lunch at R&D Kitchen. If you're going with a larger group, I'd suggest a private tour. But I think this option was best for smaller groups.

Would go again!

Great locations and wine, perfect day trip out of San Francisco. Guide was great, shared a lot of interesting info about the areas including SF itself. Vineyards were more focused on wine tasting and the history of each vineyard, not much about the wine making process.
