“Would do it again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

What a great experience. The bikes were in great shape. The staff was friendly and thoughtful. The lunch provided and snack provided was tasty. Oh my, the wine tasting was outstanding. Highly recommend the Napa Tour with a stop at Tudor Family Winery.

“Bike for your wine!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

This is a fun way to get some exercise and to be outdoors while also exploring wine country and wineries. We did the all day tour, which included stops at three wineries and a picnic lunch. Our guide, Gary, was engaging and knowledgable.

There were parts of the day that seemed a little less organized - unexplained waiting, etc - but overall we had a great time and would recommend the tour to others who want a more active way to explore Napa. If anything, we may have liked a little more bike time, even!

Other reviewers commented on safety and pressure to buy wine - we didn't feel unsafe and any time, nor did we feel pressured to purchase. I probably wouldn't go on the tour if you don't want to do some tastings - more because you'll waste a lot of time that you could be just riding if you rented a bike on your own.

Overall, fun way to spend a day in Napa area. We'd like to try the Sonoma version next time.

“Great bike tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

We chose the biking through the vineyards tour. Steve picked us up at our B&B, and it turned out to be just us. What could be better than a private tour, literally cycling through the vineyards, lots of wine, a delicious lunch, and a knowledgeable guide? It was a fantastic day; however, keep in mind that you are off road and need to endure a few hills. We would definitely take this tour again.

“Napa Valley Bike Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I would recommend this bike tour to anyone who is physically active enough to endure a 14 mile bike ride through Napa Valley....stopping at 2 to 3 wineries along the way! Great Fun!

“Beautiful Scenery but somewhat disappointed with our Bike tour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We had been so excited to experience Napa Valley on the first day of our visit on the seat of a bicycle instead of a car or van. While we did experience a beautiful scenic ride, we were disappointed in that the emphasize seemed to be on the tasting and buying of wines and not so much on the ride. The bikes were perfect, lunch was great and the tour guide knowledgeable and accommodating. What we did not appreciate was the pressure we felt from one of the wineries when we choose not to taste or buy their wines. We knew this would be a leisurely tourist experience but if we had to do it all over again we would only rent bikes and tour wineries of our choosing and save some money and not feel uncomfortable.
