I went on a tour with these guys about 9 months ago and did it again when I returned this month. No repeats of previously visited wineries. Generally wineries that we visited produce about 6,000 cases per year, great wine that you aren't going to find at the store when you get home. Evan, our guide, has been in the... More

Emailed then spoke to Max on the phone to personalize the tour for my daughter and myself. Evan ended up taking us instead of Max, which Max had phoned and had a request from a repeat customer for him to take them, which was so nice! Evan was wonderful! We went to 2 wineries I had requested and one very... More

My friend and I were recommended Max Wine Tours by my daughter. She told us they had a wonderful experience so we called them for our tour. That was the best decision we could have made. Evan was such a delight, his knowledge of wine and wine making was such a big help in our quest for special wineries. I... More

Thanks Evan for a great day of learning, laughs, and great wine. My spouse and I signed up for this tour due to TA advice, it was a great experience. I had little to no knowledge of wines (other than red or white). I have a lot still to learn but everywhere we went Max and the winery host were... More

My husband and I visited Napa Valley for the first time and although we have some knowledge of California wines, we were overwhelmed by the number of wineries and we didn't know the logistics of travel time between them, the number of wineries that we could visit in one day etc... etc.... so after we read the excellent reviews for...

I was going to be in San Francisco for business so I suggested to my colleagues that we stay an extra day and book a private wine tour with Max Napa Tours. I had the pleasure of going on a tour with Evan in April 2013 and enjoyed it so much that I wanted to go back. Evan picked us... More

My husband and I booked Max Napa Tours and had Evan as our guide. We were accompanied by 2 other people which were not that talkative, which made the day a little uncomfortable. Evan definitely made up for the lulls in the conversation with his extensive knowledge of the area and wine. My husband and I are novices to the... More

My husband and I took this tour with Evan and another married couple. Within minutes, it was as though we were all good friends. We discussed our wine preferences as well as the important things in life (the walking dead, game of thrones) before even getting out of the city. The other couple had requested a specific winery so Evan... More

This is our 2nd trip to Napa with Max. What we appreciate is he takes the time to understand your interests and then creates an itinerary to match them. We wanted to see wineries that have the passion for their craft and once again we visited 4 great places. We experienced the best of Napa in both wineries and guide!
