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

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

We were so excited about our day trip to Napa and we were not disappointed. We were instructed to take the Ferry from Embarcadero to Vallejo where our guide would meet us. This proved to be a great part of the day. Lots of sights to see along the way. Thomas,our guide, was very knowledgeable and was able to arrange... More

This was a fantastic experience for my wife and I. Our driver, Debbie, was amazing. She was prompt, super nice, and very professional. She knew the area like the back of her hand! This time around we didn't have time to plan the wineries we wanted to visit, so we went 100% on her recommendations. They were all fantastic! We... More

My friends and I used Intimate Wine Tours to hire a driver for a wine-heavy day of exploring Sonoma.
