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

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.

Richard Aldrich, our guide for the Napa Walking Tour, makes the history of Napa and Northern California come alive! He has amazing historical tales for every block of the tour that entertained and delighted us. His knowledge of the history of Napa was exceeded only by his enthusiasm. He added meaning and depth to our visit. If you go to... More

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
