What people are saying about Napa Valley

Highly recommend! Our tour guide / driver Fred went above and beyond to ensure we had a fabulous day. Fred picked us up promptly at the scheduled time and he drove us to two fabulous wineries. He even recommended a great lunch stop at the Oakville Grocery and the pizza and sandwiches were delicious We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and appreciated Fred’s kindness and knowledge of the Bay / Napa area. Kudos to a great driver, tour guide and photographer! We took four different tours while in the area and this was by far our favorite. Thanks Fred

We went on a full day tour of Muir Woods, Napa Valley, and Sonoma with our excellent tour guide Paul, who made the trip unforgettable! The views were stunning, the wine was tasty, and Paul was incredibly informed about the entire area including the local plant life, history, and wine growing/making. Two of our group got engaged at Muir Woods and Paul went out of his way to make it a special occasion even purchasing sparkling wine and glasses to drink and take home. We would 10/10 recommend Paul and this tour!

It was wonderful. The guide Fred was impeccable! After I bought the tour, he made the contact right away. We fixed everything before by whatsapp. He gave great suggestions! The super ride makes it easier because you can do several tastings without worrying because you don't have to drive afterwards. We were with our 6 year old son, so the private tour was very comfortable.

Fred was delightful and kind. He was so flexible to the needs of our group of 3 cousins. The weather was wonderful too. He is a safe and excellent driver so we felt we were in good hands. Highly recommend!

Our driver was great and shared a lot of information about Napa Valley that I was not aware of.
