Welcome the Max Napa Tours! We offer full-day Private and Semi-Private wine tours to Napa Valley, Northern Sonoma or Sonoma Valley. Tours are done in luxury SUV's, with seating for up to six people. We pick up directly from most hotels in San Francisco or Wine Country, and will put together a unique itinerary based on group preferences. The same tour has never been done twice! We typically visit small family-owned vineyards, producing handcrafted wines only available through the tasting room. Winemakers will greet you as friends. You are also able to make specific winery requests. All guides are certified Sommeliers, providing you the perfect balance of knowledge and fun!

This was a last minute decision to do a Napa tour and we didn't have any plans! Max picked us up and we had a wonderful experience. We visited 4 wineries, ate at a great little restaurant that was booked but Max got us into and stopped for pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge! One of the best tours I... More

Traveling to San Francisco on a regular basis for business it’s always nice to be able to fit in something that allows you to totally disconnect from work even for a short period. Max was recommended by one of my co-workers in San Francisco and I have to say we were not disappointed from the moment we met to the... More

We found this company through Tripadvisor reviews so we thought we'd also contribute a review and share our own experience. We were looking to do a private Napa tour that could pick us up from our hotel in San Francisco. We soon discovered that most wine tour operators are based in Napa which makes pick up & drop off in... More

My wife and I booked this tour almost 3 months in advance. I was aware that they take up to 6 people per trip, but was told they group people with similar tastes together. I was clear that we are only interested in big cabs. I told them 8 wines that we love and asked to go to those or... More

Hi Michael, I appreciate the feedback on the tour. I can understand the frustration at not getting to visit the big name wineries on the tour, but it comes down to tasting fees. Many of the wineries you mentioned that you like to drink (eg Opus One $45, Quintessa $75, Phelps $75 tasting fees) are just too expensive to visit... More

Max Napa Tours was recommended to us by our niece, she was so right! Max picked us up in a late model SUV and took us to Sonoma county for the day. We had talked on the phone and he asked what we were interested in as far as wines were concerned, I told him we were up for anything...He... More

We chose Max Napa Tours for a tour of Northern Sonoma and they picked us up directly from our hotel. It was a weekday, so we were their only guests on the tour and Evan was our guide. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Evan. He is sommelier, so he is extremely knowledgeable about varietals, the wine-making process and Sonoma... More

I hired Max Napa Tours for a day in Sonoma with friends. I was very much impressed with Max...both his personal style and extensive love and knowledge of wine. The day was perfect and we all loved spending the day with Max. He was fun and interesting and a great driver. The vehicle was super comfy too. He arrived at... More

We were blessed with mild weather which made the whole day so much more enjoyable. We choose Max because of TripAdvisor reviews & weren't disappointed. With 3 couples and our guide, the group dynamic proved to be enriching and fun. A major part of a winery tour is the camaraderie that you establish with your fellow tasters-- savoring your reactions... More

We highly recommend this tour. Myself, my Mum and another couple, for a total of four people were picked-up in San Francisco, and taken on an all-day tour with Evan. Evan was great: it was a treat to learn that he is an accredited sommelier (so he really knows his stuff!) and he was a very gracious host and guide.... More

Loved our day out with Evan! Really enjoyed the different characters of the wineries that we visited, Evan's expertise and the lack of wine snobbery! I was really impressed by how smoothly the day ran, and little details like providing bottles of water just when we were starting to feel tipsy! Napa is absolutely beautiful and I am so glad...
