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

We happened to hit the perfect weekend for both wine tasting and this wonderful 90 minute walking tour. There was so much colorful information about the homes, founders, saloons and especially the beer stop! Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area and is a local. We appreciated the hospitality and would go on this same tour again next year!

$25 was a steal for the very personalized tour. Fun, educational, and more importantly free beer. Great value and stories.

Our tour guide, Helen, took us and a couple of "locals" on a most excellent journey! She tailored her stories to fit both our interests as newcomers to the area and to the locals who ventured on the tour that day. Helen recanted stories of the first settlers to the area, which business owners built buildings that evolved in to... More

Time well spent!!!! There is no better way to get to know a place than to become acquainted with the historical grounding of the area and Mary did just that and more. From stories about the founders to architectural highlights to recent events, a delightful and informative walk. We even had a beer tasting at a local brewer's. Don't miss... More

We took the Napa downtown walking tour with friends in May, 2014. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the history of Napa and the founding families. We probably would have missed many of the interesting homes without taking the tour. A plus was a visit to a brew pub in one of the historic... More

What a great way to enjoy the dow town area of Napa. The history of Napa unfolds around you. I would recommend this to all Napa visitors. A quick stop at downtown Joes for a refresher of IPA how could you go wrong in Wine Country.
