First time touring the wine country. I wanted someone knowledgeable with a good track record to help us with the experience. We were fortunate to have chosen Flex and have Holden as our driver. Good wine stops. Holden was perfect. Knowledgeable, courteous, attentive and non-intrusive. If we ever go again, this is how I'll go and who I'll use.

Holden our driver was a very nice guy and very knowledgeable. He was on time (5 mins early as a matter of fact) and was very professional. The tour couldn't have been any better. I really recommend Flex Wine tours the next time you are in Napa.

We engaged Flex Wine Tours for a group of 10 for my husband's birthday. James was very helpful in the booking process, asking about the people, their likes and their experience. We were a very mixed bunch, including wine tour veterans and neophytes. James put together a perfect tour, taking us to both big name commercial wineries and small family... More

My mother and I went to Napa for the first time and it was overwhelming to choose which wineries to visit. James and our guide Holden were very helpful and tailored our 2 days according to our taste in wine (which was difficult because my mom likes light white wines and I drink bold red wines). If you want to... More

We're so glad that this worked out so well for you and your Mom. I know you had several special requests on her behalf and were able to get you to the places she loved. The Flex is a great SUV in many respects and especially with elderly persons to comfortable ride and get in and out all day. Thanks... More

Thanks to James for booking and to Damon for a great day! It was a full day - 8 hours by the time we finished. We enjoyed spending time with a coupe of the owners and learned a great deal about the fabulous wines and the process! The vehicle was comfortable and a great stress free way to see the... More

We did a five-hour tour with James and it was excellent in all respects. His winery selections were perfect for our preferences. The owners were welcoming and enjoyed presenting their wines. We were never rushed or pressured in any way. James is very knowledgable and his expertise added a great deal to the experience. I would highly recommend his service... More

Thanks for the review. As we discussed, with over 500 winery choices in Napa alone, it is always a challenge to choose just the right 4-5 for your specific trip. But glad it worked out as well as it did. Although its not always the case, it is fun to meet the owners on occasion and get the insiders scoop... More

James treated us to a GREAT day of amazing wines and fun. We learned a great deal about wine and food pairings as well. We were never rushed and loved each of the vineyard stops -- a nice combination of big and small productions. Highly recommend Flex!

As you found out, I love talking food & wine pairings...and sharing my recipes. i think many people underestimate the power of food with wine and here in Napa it is just part of our meals. Glad to have shared my insights and always available to lend my expertise in this area. More

My husband organized a wine tour with James for our honeymoon. We were only spending two days in Napa, so we wanted to make the most of our time there. James was very communicative in the planning stages and wanted to make sure we would visit places we would enjoy. James picked us up at our hotel in his vehicle.... More

We went with James one day and Holden the second day and had a great time. We went to mostly small wineries that we never would have known about and did not have crowds anywhere. They also gave us great recommendations for dinner after the tour. I would book with them again

We take pride in getting our guests away from the crowds which so regularly flock to this famous wine country. Napa/Sonoma are great because they produce some of the finest wines in the country and even the world, but what fun is elbowing your way through a crowd up to a bar to taste alongside the masses? That doesn't make... More
