My overall experience with Green Dream Tours was excellent. In this tour, we visited three different family-owned wineries, which was really nice for me because I am coming abroad and wines of those wineries were available only in US. The selection of the winery was excellent. The driver was very kind to keep wines that we purchased. However, only one drawback of the tour I joined was the driver didn't show up as scheduled in the previous e-mail; I had to wait cold outside for 40 minutes. I understand that the problem was the bad traffic in San Francisco, and the driver was so kind to drop me the first because I waited for the longest minutes. It could be reassuring if I could get contact from the driver in case of delayed arrival. Besides that point, I was very satisfied for the tour. Thank you.

good selection of vineyards, patchy delivery

We enjoyed 3 vineyards, small, medium & large. Wineries were generous with wine. Would have liked greater variety of wines, snacks en route. The guide, was good on the whole, describing wine making areas etc but he knows we were not happy with the pickup at Travelodge, 10 min walk from Van Ness - dodgy area, and we were there for 45 min. Slightly hyper return journey. He was also very good at facilitating the group interaction. We enjoyed the group.

Good day trip

Had a very enjoyable trip to Napa Valley, Jake was a great host and made the day more interesting without over-doing it. I preferred the first winery of the day (Hagafen), though foolishly didn't buy any wine as thinking there may be better to come! The lunch spot at Oxbow Market was good with lots of food options - the beef sandwich was spot on. Only a couple of minor negatives; the usual bus had broken down so we went in a cramped/hot minibus, though GDT were good and offered a small discount. Also, the tastings throughout the day seemed to get smaller and smaller, our group would have liked more than one mouthful of each wine per tasting ;-)
