Mary was our tour guide and she was the sweetest. She took our group of 4 around downtown Napa. She took her time with us and even finished later than intended, we weren't rushed at all. All the things we tasted on our tour were not what I'd normally have, like olive oil on ice cream. I learned a ton... More

Richard, our guide was very knowledgable and passionate about the city of Napa. He was very interesting and pointed out history that was not part of the "normal tour." The walk was not far but super interesting. We learned the history of Napa, saw many architecturally interesting buildings/houses and learned places to eat and drink. I would recommend this tour...

We did the Napa Arts walk to see the sculptures. Unfortunately, there were some off limit areas due to the earthquake damage. However, I would recommend a trip to Napa and a walk around the town. There are lot of places to see, things to do, food to eat and wine and beer to sample.

My girlfriend and I decided to spend a weekend in Napa for our one year anniversary. We started our trip with the Napa Walking Tour and couldn't be more satisfied with the experience. Richard, our tour guide, first took us through the riverfront while telling us some history of the Napa Valley. He was very personable and boy did he... More

We have been through Napa several times but never stopped to check out the town. This tour is a great way to do just that. Our guide was a local and very knowledgable. We walked through the newer riverfront area, through downtown and then to the mansion district. You wouldn't know these areas existed by just passing through Napa. We... More

We were greeted by Jonathon who is a Napa native. He was very personable and MORE important, very knowledgeable on Napa history. The tour was extremely interesting and informative! The pace was perfect as was the timing. A 90 minute tour, beginning at 9:30am gives you time to sleep in and the whole rest of your day for other activities... More

This tour takes you from the earliest days of Napa to the present in an informative, fun and history-packed 90 minutes. Highlights include the river, the earliest public buildings, the mansions of the local gentry, stories of Napa's illustrious beginnings and last but certainly not least, the beer at Downtown Joe's. As a fellow tour guide in another city, I... More

We visited Napa for the first time on an anniversary trip. We wanted to learn about the true history of Napa and we're glad we booked with Napa Walking Tours. We had our tour with Helen and it was a fabulous time! We loved walking around admiring the Victorian style buildings and houses, walking through Churchill Manor, and having a... More
