I loved not having to drive and learning more about Napa thanks to Emily. She also kept us on track so we got to see and do a lot. It was an amazing day with an amazing tour guide!!!

I went on a trip with 3 other friends to Napa/Sonoma. This was my second trip to the area, but I had never done a private driver or shuttle before. This time I experienced both and can give an objective opinion. The private driver is the best way to go if you have time for only one day. Our driver... More

Our planner, Susan, gave us terrific advice on the best wineries to visit in Napa and Sonoma. Each winery treated us exceptionally well with individual attention in some cases. We got in to visit Repris thanks to Susan while another pair we joined at Hunter using a different service were unable to get that opportunity. Our driver, Josh, was very... More

This is our second trip to Napa where we have used Intimate Wine Private Tours. They take care of all the details for booking the tastings, plan where to stop to buy lunch and then pick a nice place at a vineyard for the picnic. Our driver, Debbie, made the day relaxing and stress free so that we could enjoy... More

This is my second time using Intimate, and it was just as great as the first time. Our driver Christie, was prompt, extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the area. We had a set itinerary, but due the earthquake, Tom, the manager called everywhere on our list to confirm they would be open. For the price, intimate is hands down the... More

I don't really know where to start. I decided back in February of this year that I was going to surprise my wife in August with a trip to Napa for her 40th birthday. Having never been to Napa, I took a recommendation from the Hotel Andaz concierge on what the best way was to experience Napa. They recommended the... More

Intimate Wine tours was amazing. We contacted them last minute on a Saturday night (after a recommendation from a winery), and they were able to pull together a Sunday morning tour for us. Tom was very good at keeping in contact with us, and accommodating all of our wishes. Our driver Josh was great as well. He was fun to... More

I actually mixed up the dates, and we (my wife and 3 adult children) arrived a day earlier than we originally booked. Having realized my blunder, I called Susan in a panic at 6pm! She told me to simply relax-she would be happy to work her magic and guaranteed a fun filled day of tastings arranged for us the next... More

We had Tom as our driver, and he was extremely knowledgeable, professional and personable. We had originally had another service do up our tour for about 50% higher than what Intimate Wine Tours cost. It was a wonderful day and I have and will continue to use and refer friends and clients to Intimate Wine Tours. They go well above... More

This tour was booked well in advance before its scheduled date. It's unfortunate that this consumer was dissatisfied with the price point and the quote, considering that we explained everything in detail, over email, regarding the price per hour along with the exclusive costs of the tastings and lunch. They had every opportunity to cancel their tour (w/ no cancellation... More
