“A fun and informative day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Alex, our guide, was wonderful. His knowledge and friendliness made for a great experience. Our day visiting wineries in Sonoma was fabulous. Alex chose a perfect itinerary. If you have only a short time in Sonoma, go with Intimate Wine Private Tours.

Thank you again for selecting Intimate Wine Tours. Alex is an excellent wine tour guide. He is much more than just a "driver," but a well educated and very informed wine tour guide. Everyone thoroughly enjoys Alex's charming personality and very friendly hospitality. Thank you again for the wonderful recommendation regarding our company when you only have one day for a wine country visit. We will do our very best in order to maximize your wine tasting experience on limited time. We look forward to seeing you again in the future and to provide you with another fantastic wine tasting experience with Intimate Wine Tours.

“The ONLY way to go!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Just back from 3 weeks in California, from Napa to San Diego ... we want everyone to know about how we spent 5 days touring Napa, Sonoma, Dry Creek, Alexander Valley and Russian River wineries with Intimate Wine Tours. IT WAS FABULOUS!!!!! I cannot brag enough about both Susan and Tom. Susan worked meticulously with me, for months, to arrange a special week of wineries personal to us, in celebration of my husband's birthday. Susan's attention to details and patience in educating me about the area put a level of comfort to the trip that I will always be grateful for - I could relax!!!!! Our personal tour guide and driver each day, Tom, was prompt, professional and extremely meticulous making each day run beyond smoothly. We can never thank you enough - your personal insight into "us" had the giggles going, the discussions deep and the touring terrific. Tom's love and passion for what he does came through in the level of comfort he instilled. We felt our great friend was driving us around, showing off his favorite spots. We trusted our trip to true professionals!!! We will be back to the Napa area because of Intimate Wine Tours - it is the ONLY way to go!!!!!!!!

On behalf of the entire Intimate Wine Tours team we know you have many choices when visiting the Napa and Sonoma wine country and we truly thank you for selecting our wine tour company. Susan always does an incredible and fantastic job handling all of the details and reservations regarding your wine tour. We are so grateful and it was our pleasure to be a part of your 3 week vacation to California. One of the many advantages of booking with our company for a multi-day wine tour is that you had the opportunity to experience all of the unique appellations that encompass the entire Napa and Sonoma wine region. With our drivers and their extensive wine country knowledge, we always pride ourselves on being much more than just "drivers," but well informed and educated wine tour guides. As we tell all of our guests, you come as clients, but leave as friends. Again, thank you for the amazing review and we are so elated that you had such a wonderful wine country vacation. We look forward to seeing you again in the future and to provide you with another fantastic wine tour with Intimate Wine Tours.
With warm regards,
Tom
