My friends and I went up to Napa for our first time and Emily and Tom at Intimate wine tours made it special. This small company really works with you and helps customize the tour so that you get the most out of the experience. Our driver Emily was a doll, she was helpful with suggestions and knowledgeable about the... More

Emily picked my husband and me up at our Inn 3 days after the Napa earthquake. While she did not express any troubles, we asked her how she was doing...she smiled and said, "the best thing I can do it get back to work"! She was awesome. She had knowledge of the wineries, and provided feedback as needed. She also... More

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 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.
