Tom was a great guide and was able to customize the trip to our tastes, which involved going to a place he wasn't used to going to. We had a delicious lunch and he even catered to my gluten free diet. We truly enjoyed the day!

So much fun! I had a group of 12, and we had a great time. The wineries we visited were nice and off the beaten path. The bike ride itself was not too strenuous (there was one big hill, but mostly pretty flat/rolling). The lunch provided was delicious. Tommy and Dustin were friendly and helpful.

During planning of a mega-trip to Napa, our group of 8 decided that for one of our days we would rent bikes and do a self-guided tour of wineries... turns out that actually involves a LOT of planning and knowledge! Less than two weeks before the trip, I was panicking and self-doubting over all the logistics involved and turned to... More

hate to say this, but overall mediocre experience compared to other bike/wine country tours. guide did not do much beyond bike ahead of us--very little explanation of scenery, wineries, and was a little apathetic overall. office was hit/miss about responding back to emails. suboptimal value for price.

We are a family of four, two adults, an 8 years old and a 3 years old. Randy from Getaway Tours was wonderful. Lots of patience for our little one. He arranged a kayak tour that was exactly suitable for us and our pace (with two kids). The kayak adventure was exciting, and the lunch that he arranged was excellent:very... More

We did have a lot of fun! This one of the most adventuresome family I have ever met. We went out on just the most gorgeous day imaginable and Ron and Iris have the two most wonderful kids, full of excitement and curiosity. We paddled over to the seals, went on the beach and watched the surfers and paddled around... More

For our first trip to Napa, we wanted a unique way to tour wine country. We booked the Calistoga Sip and Cycle tour and had a FANTASTIC time! There were 10 of us on the tour and everyone was so friendly and fun. A few of us were celebrating anniversaries and we were surprised with a "Happy Anniversaries" cake at... More

I was recently visiting a friend in Santa Rosa, Sonoma Valley. I had arranged my trip with Tim before my departure from El Salvador to go mountain biking. I was picked up at the cottage where I was staying and was taken to Annadel Park. We had enough water and power treats for the whole day. Tim was very conscious... More

We booked the Carneros Sip and Ride while attending a meeting in San Francisco. It was very easy to book on the website. I received a reminder email 2 days prior to the event with directions to the meeting point. The directions were easy to follow and the iPhone maps app took us right to the landing. Craig, our guide,... More

Our bike ride with Randy was perfect for our small group of 4 with mixed riding skills. We met him and the van in Calistoga and went on a scenic drive in Calistoga. He stopped along the way to share some points of interest we would have missed on our own. We stopped for a delightful wine tour and then... More

Our Calistoga Sip n Cycle bike trip was delightful! We visited 4 vineyards and had a picnic lunch with fantastic food. Easy cycling and a nice selection of vineyards. Randy taught us a lot about the vines, barrel making, hot springs and of course wine! I really love biking on the roads through the vineyards. If you like to bike... More
