This tour was great. As a beginner it gave us the opportunity to explore the sights and wineries of Wine Country all whole relaxing on a luxury bus. Patrick our guide was wonderful! He provided wonderful commentary on sights and history and his food recommendations in the square were spot on. Plus I loved the fact that we were picked up and dropped off right at our hotel door.
On time bus arrival, bus in excellent condition, Well thought out agenda from an experienced organization. Like most successful operations, however, it is people that make it a success. Tour guide/driver Willie is an affable, genuine human being who enjoys what he is doing. You cant hide that trait. His knowledge of the area, his willingness to impart a learned opinion and his ability to transmit personality during a full day experience cannot be understated. Very good tour!!!
An amazing day! Our tour guide was clearly very passionate about wine and made the day very enjoyable with his humour and knowledge of the Napa and Sonoma. Provided recommendations on places to eat throughout our stops as well as other tips for San Fran itself. Would do this tour over and over again
This tour was amazing. Our Bus Driver/Tour Guide was excellent, Danillo from Honduras. He was very informative throughout the whole tour. We enjoyed all the wineries except for the Mario Andretti Winery. Our favorite was Cline Winery. Our stop for lunch was perfect with different selections of places to eat. I would highly recommend this tour.
I was in San Fran for work for the week and my mom came to visit for the latter part of my trip. She was celebrating her birthday and I decided to gift this tour to her. Everything about it was flawless to the pick up a block away from our hotel till our drop off. The driver was excellent and extremely knowledgeable about the Sonoma/Napa area. You would really tell that he loved his job... like really loved it! I think his name was Willie ... he was an older black man We visited three wineries Sutter Home, Andretti, cant remember third all were different and beautiful. We had ample time to shop and sample at each winery. We made a stop for lunch in the cutest little town. Food was reasonably priced at the Italian restaurant that we ate at. The bus was nice, clean, and comfortable.
I would recommend this trip to anyone looking for a day trip to the wine region!
This tour was very well organized and coordinated. The shuttle picked us up at our hotel and took us to the meeting point by the bay. Once we boarded the tour bus Silvio, our tour guide provided us with very good information of areas we toured. It was a long day, therefore, I recommend wearing comfortable shoes as you get on and off the bus to visit the different wineries. There is opportunity for wine tasting, a little shopping and taking pictures. We really enjoyed this trip! Highly recommend this trip to anyone visiting Napa and Sonoma for the first time!
We enjoyed the ride in the air conditioned bus in the 90 heat. The driver was great, very informative. This was a great overview of both Napa and Sonoma.
All the wineries were great! Madonna was the most tasty, but Sutter had really amazing wines. Our driver/tour guide was outstanding!
This tour of Napa Valley and Sonoma was wonderful! Our tour driver Willie was so delightful and very knowledgeable about the whole area. The three vineyards that we visited were very welcoming and provided much information about wine making and wine tasting the proper way. I learned a lot about wines and definitely look forward to visiting the area again in the future. I highly recommend Tower Tours for their professionalism and concern that the tour be enjoyed by all.
Our tour guide Patrick was fantastic. Super informative, and hilarious. They pick you up from the hotel and drop you off. It was a perfect day if you enjoy wine.
This was a wonderful tour and the guide was very knowledgeable about wine grapes and all of the wineries we visited.
Each winery was different. Our driver was very knowledgeable. Having a little bit more time to walk around during our lunch break would have been nice. Definitely a great tour if you want to see both Napa and Sonoma in one day.
This was such an awesome trip! I actually believe that our driver Patrick contributed to making this tour so pleasant and unforgetable.
We had a great time on our tour, starting with a hotel pickup - so convenient! The driver was exceptional - driving was smooth and he could talk about the sites and share his perspective about the sites along the way. The 3 Wineries that were selected for us gave a good cross section small organic, through to large industrial size production. Nice lunchtime destination too.
Absolutely fantastic - Sylvio sorry if I have spelt this wrong was terrific had us in stiches. Knew an awful lot about the region and about wine in general and made the tour very enjoyable.. The Aussie Girls
Our Bus Driver/Tour Guide Silvio was wonderful! Absolutely a great experience.
