This tour is the perfect way to start your Napa vacation! We saw a wonderful mix of small wineries that we never would have stumbled across otherwise. Our guide Steve was great- he provided just the right amount of education throughout the trip so it was never boring but we learned a lot. We have been to many other wineries... More

We called and scheduled the one day tour. We were told that the tour guide asks us about wine we like or places we might want to visit. That part was not true at all. They have the same 4 wineries that they go to all the time. The bus was hot and the tour driver was touching his phone... More

We enjoyed both the Join In tour and a private tour. Steve and Alicia provided 2 great days of touring wine country. We saw a great variety of vineyards and got to sample some of the best wines in Napa. We will be back!

We would do a tour with this group again. Very informative and fun. It really is a couples oriented experience. Wear sensible shoes and don't get drunk too early. By sensible I should let you know that there is a certain amount of walking around in the Vineyards which are either muddy dusty or dirty. No big deal but I... More

Great tour, great value and great fun. Scott was our tour guide/ driver and he was wonderful. Scott customized the winery tours based on the guest. The tour was much more than I expected.

We only had one day to experience Napa, and we feel we made an excellent choice---we were picked up from our hotel, taken to 4 uniquely wonderful boutique wineries where we tasted a variety of high quality wines paired with delicious food items (marinated olives, crusty bread with homemade hummus, spiced almonds, dark chocolate) while being educated by the owners...
