Dan Dolan is the optimal choice when selecting a tour guide for Napa and Sonoma wine country! His combined knowledge of the local wine region, interesting wineries (that one would never locate on their own), and his extensive understanding of winemaking and grapegrowing make him an ideal touring companion. He's informative, witty, light-hearted and a joy to be with. We... More

We spent a day with Dan in the Sonoma area. We spoke with him ahead of time so he could get a feel for the type of wine we were interested in. I told him we wanted to go to places we probably would not find our own. He did not disappoint. He is very knowledgable and has a relaxed,... More

My fiance' and I spent the day with Dan as our guide. Dan did an excellent job of choosing a variety of wineries for us to visit. He was very knowledgeable about the area and each vineyard that we toured. He arranged a wonderful picnic lunch for us with a nice assortment of local fare. At our approval, he brought... More

The best thing we did, besides deciding to travel to Napa, was decide to have Dan as our Napa tour guide and driver. Not only was Dan knowledgeable about wine, but also about the people and history of the Valley. Arguably, the most "interesting" part of our Napa experience was not wine, but on Dan's suggestion, the "olive oil tasting... More

My husband and I took a tour with Dan Dolen which was fabulous! We are wine snob novices; Dan's tour was very informative and we saw beautiful country! He also provided us with places that the "locals" go to which gave us wonderful other places to visit from the hotel. We toured Russian River Valley and he also took us... More

This was our 3rd year in a row using Dan for our wine country trip. He has done a great job each year finding new and interesting wineries to visit. He has also gotten access into some wineries that don't normally host tastings. He is both passionate and knowledgeable about wine and the wine country. I highly recommend Dan and... More

we had a great day with Dan escorting us around. Didn't hit the major commercial wineries, which made the trip much more intimate and fun with the family. He is a wealth of knowledge about the area and a real cool dude. He is definitely highly recommended!!

My wife and I toured Sonoma with Dan in mid-September. He was a great guide. He certainly seems to know his stuff, and will plan a tour with you taking into consideration your interests and palate. Via email at first, we exchanged information about the kinds of wines we like, and we asked him to select the wineries accordingly. The... More

My husband, daughter and her boyfriend and I spent a day touring Napa Valley with Dan and his assistant Oliver. Dan was a wonderful guide and took us to five different wineries. Halfway through our day we stopped at a market to pick up some lunch and had a picnic on the grounds of one of the wineries. We tasted... More
