Lonny was a great tour guide. Very flexible and willing to accommodate our wishes. We would definitely choose this company again for a private wine tour.
Was very enjoyable day. Driver very knowledgeable. Highly recommend tather than trying to drive yourself
Very accommodating and very friendly driver. I wish we had more time to visit other wineries but both caymus and Beringer were terrific
I thought this deal was too good to be true, but it was just that good! The first thing our driver, Peter, said when he pulled up was "I'm yours for the day!" He was incredibly friendly and very accommodating. He made great recommendations about scenic places to stop and gave us great information about the area. I had an easy time communicating with the company once I booked through Viator... before you book you have to ask questions through Viator which was a bit time consuming but still easy. Big pros: 1) You can make your itinerary completely unique. 2) We were able to do a pick up in San Francisco and drop off in Sonoma... this allowed us to fill our 8 hours with 4 wineries! 3) The service was fantastic!!! Small cons: 1) Not being able to communicate directly with the tour group before booking. 2) Setting up and scheduling your own tastings (not a very big con, I enjoy trip planning so this was fun for me!).
Our driver was amazing! Told us much more about the area and we loved every second of it! We would recommend this experience in a heartbeat!
Our tour guide Mason was such a wonderful host. He drove us to all the cool picture spots on our way out of SF to Napa. He suggested the coolest of places to visit and he truly made our day special. Can’t wait to see you again Mason! Thank you so much!!!
This was the most enjoyable and easy going tour I have ever been on. Our guide was sooo easy going and gracious!
We had Peter, who was absolutely amazing! He helped us with our itinerary and was so knowledgeable and helpful. I would come back a million times and do a tour with this company. Thank you!!
Spent a wonderful day in Napa and Sonoma and visited 4 vineyards! Alex was very knowledgeable and accommodating and we had plenty of room in his Suburban for our family of 5. Please note the vineyard tastings “included “ in the price were very limited so all our tasting fees were extra. (Approximately $25/pp per vineyard)
We spent a lot of time at 2 wineries out of the 6 and were fine with that decision! No rushing and plenty of wine to choose from while getting a wonderful tour at Benziger! Highly recommend it! Very enjoyable day
Stellar!!! From the service, ride, sights, details, etc. This was one of the best things my husband and I could have done. Our driver was amazing and had a wealth of information about the area which made us feel more like a local rather than a tourist. They helped plan most of the details of our trip and we were super pleased with it all!
From the first point of contact til drop off, this was awesome! Vadim was super communicative prior to the tour making sure all logistics were arranged perfectly and provided us with such a great tour. The best and most relaxing way to visit wine country. Next time I'm in wine country I'll do this again - absolutely fantastic!!
This tour was amazing! I would recommend to anyone who loves wine and would like to experience it in a small group and go to the wineries of your choice. Raj I need to say was absolutely fantastic ! He was such a professional and made this trip for my boyfriend and I. He helped me with making suggestions when I wasn't sure about my itinerary and ended up recommending two other fantastic wineries instead of what I had planned. Raj was also able to give me some insight about Napa and the wine makers, harvesting season for the varietals and just great conversation, which made the ride go by so quick. The only thing I would recommend is that the tour operator maybe think about changing the cheaper bubbly at the start for a nice Prosecco instead. This is a must do trip if you want to have fantastic wines of your choice, well worth it!
We just completed this fantastic tour of the Russian River and Sonoma County wineries with our excellent driver, James. This is the only way yo see the wineries. You are picked up in a luxury sedan and immediately head off to begin your tour. The company is very helpful in planning which wineries to see and plan out a nice day. We chose Sonoma County because we found the Napa wineries to be very expensive 80.00 pp and we tend to drink Sonoma wines which are very good and at a great price point. You are never rushed to get back on the bus since you have your own car and the people at the wineries can personalize the experience for you. We did 4 wineries and had lunch at a great microbrewery very reasonably priced almost at the point of being cheap. This is a GREAT company with which to deal from the personal planning phase to post-tour follow. Very responsive. And, the private tour really is no more expensive than the minibus tours so, to me, it is a no brainer. This tour is not to be missed.
This tour was amazing! We did the private tours. From the start working with Mason to plan out the perfect wineries to visit to Alex our driver for the day. Absolutely amazing! We will be using this company again.
Dean was a treat! Prompt, friendly and very accommodating . Out tour began at 9:00 am, Dean stopped in the Marina District to let us pick up coffee, made a stop for a champagne toast at the SF Bay Bridge, took us to a recommendation winery in Sonoma and then on to the wineries we had made reservations at in Napa. We ran a little late for our reservation at Rombauer no fault of Dean and did not have time to pick up a picnic as we had planned. Dean made a great recommendation, went in to town to pick up a lunch we ordered and had it waiting for us to enjoy in the garden at Rombauer. He even took us back to our hotel via Lombard street. It was a great day for the 4 our us. I would definitely recommend this tour.....ask for Dean !
Had a wonderful time, it's really the only way to see the beautiful landscape. Sit back and enjoy!!
Our group of six had the most amazing wine tour day! Our driver, Dean, was absolutely wonderful. He was friendly and very knowledgeable. It was a perfect day from the time he picked us up until the time he dropped us off. We explained what we were hoping to experience that day, took the tour company recommendations, made a few modifications as we went along and all of us will be happy to recommend this tour to any friends, family or anyone else visiting the area.
We really enjoyed the tour with driver James, a genuinely nice guy who also is a knowledgeable and safe driver. Vadim of Town Limo provided a list of recommended wineries and dining that was very helpful for advance planning, and also made calls to coordinate pick-up near our cruise ship. The private tour was a real treat after taking several cruise ship bus excursions.
