Description: Wine Country Tour Shuttle, with its Super High 94% TripAdvisor Rating...
Wine Country Tour Shuttle, with its Super High 94% TripAdvisor Rating Score operates from San Francisco to either Napa or Sonoma. We encourage wine lovers to go on both our Wine Country Tours because the different wine regions are so uniquely different. Our Napa Experience Tour visits 4 wineries and has a picnic lunch and a 50-minute relaxing ferry cruise included. See the reviews below to see how well the picnic lunch and the ferry cruise is so well received. The Sonoma Experience Tour (local favorite tour) is new for us and has great reviews below because we picked 2 fantastic wineries, plus we put together a walking map of Sonoma square where guests can get one free pour at each location. Wine Country Tour Shuttle received the 2013 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Award.

Smooth & easy online booking process, our tour guide (Eric) was fabulous. He provided interesting and relevant facts whilst driving through the city. The 4 vineyards were well chosen - one big corporate owned, 2 medium sized and then a beuatiful small one to finish. The ferry home was great - gave the opportuity to see SF from a different...

The tour starts at the Ferry Building in the Embarcadero, then takes you in a shuttle van to four gorgeous wineries in Napa, then brings you back to San Francisco on a ferry from Vallejo. We enjoyed the information offered at Domaine Chandon on making sparkling wine and what to look for in a fine sparkling wine. In fact, we... More

This was a great tour of four vinyards we bought wine at one stop and drank it as we traveled. It was very relaxing. Bring your camera. The tour returns to the city via the fairy so bring a coat if you want to ride outside. It was great.

Even though it was a bit painful, I really liked the departure time being early. We had picture perfect late September weather and Kari knew so much about the area that it was extremely memorable. Since the weather was so great and there was no fog, after we crossed the Golden Gate Bridge, we stopped and had about 20 minutes... More

Great experience! The guide was very personable. She advised getting food at the first stop to munch on all day. Do it - it makes the day better. I bought a bagette, some cheese, a few olives, roasted veggies. The food is a bit expensive, but you get a 10 dollar voucher to help offset the cost. The bus was... More

My husband and I took this tour from San Francisco and enjoyed it very much. In fact for me it was the highlight of our trip. Our tour guide, Lisa, was great. Very friendly and knowledgeable. We visited four wineries. My favorite wine was that from Andretti Winery. (and Mario Andretti was actually there the day we visited). Napa is... More

I'm so glad we chose this particular tour. Everything about it was fantastic - our guide, the personal tours/tasings at the vinyards and even our shuttle driver! The ferry ride home was the perfect ending to a perfect day!

My boyfriend and I chose this tour (after researching online) primarily because of the ferry service back from Vallejo rather than risking bad traffic back into San Francisco. We went on a Friday and our choice definitely paid off - we skipped a huge line of traffic, boarded the ferry quickly, and were on our way back to SF in... More
