    Good Trip...Will Do Again
    End result was amazing. Little clunky getting all the arrangements and instructions correctly set up. Communication was at first confusing.

    Great day trip to Sonoma with amazing service!
    I organized this day trip for my mum's 60th and it did not disappoint! We got to fully customize the experience and choose our vineyards based on our preferences. Edward was a fantastic and professional driver who had a lot of knowledge about the wineries and area. Thanks for giving my mum and family a memorable trip to CA!

    Whole day Napa valley visit
    Our entire experience was so amazing! HIGHLY recommend this company if you're looking for a intimate experience with you and your loved ones! Pick up/drop off was all on time and we made it to all the wineries on time. Our driver, Edward, was SO much fun and did a fantastic job educating us on the the Napa area, the wineries, and even helped us get our perfect photos!!! Overall - 10/10 experience :)

    Best vinyard Experience & best personal chauffeur!
    Lonny was our driver. We couldn’t of asked for a more knowledgeable & kind person to get us to the vineyards. The car was comfortable and clean & he was able to give us the best advice for time spent at each Vineyard. We are three girls from New York and we’re totally impressed. We would hire Lonny again.

    Wine Tasting Tours
    We loved being able to sit back and enjoy the wine tastings without having to worry about driving and navigating through wine country. We did a private Napa tour one day and private Sonoma another. I would recommend doing the longer tours if possible. Lonny was our driver and he was amazing! He made sure we were comfortable and kept us on schedule, while pointing out interesting facts between tastings. He was even able to make an impromptu reservations for us at a wine tasting. We had a great time and requested Lonny drive both of our tours. If you are able to make a request for a driver Lonny is an excellent choice!

    Fantastic
    Lonnie was our driver for our Napa Wine Tour with the wife, kids, and cousins from out of country. Lonnie was hands down the friendliest and most professional driver we could have asked for and was on time (actually early) for every one of our pickups. If you use this service, ask for Lonnie, he was the best!

    Great experience
    We had an amazing couples getaway and doing this tour was the highlight. Each spot offered a different setting (great for photographer) and new idea on how to run a winery. We got a backhand look at the labor and operations of it all and then also got to try some of the best wine in Napa and Sonoma valley. Our guide was personable and very knowledgeable from the start, also patient with our group who had to use bathroom a couple of times. Highly recommend this tour

    Every time I have guest in town and want to visit wine country i call up Cardinal. They are so accommodating! This last trip I booked a trip to visit a few wineries in Sonoma with a few friends. Lonny, our driver was not only punctual but he offered to detour from our schedule to find us a drive through that had breakfast. Highly recommend!

    Best memories and best wine experience we could have asked for!
    Convinced Lonny was absolutely fantastic and the best driver there is!!! We found ourselves enjoying the journey there and back as much as the wine tastings. This trip and experience is worth every single penny for the memories made! He made personal suggestions for us and offered us coffee stops, the most scenic photo ops, helped figure out a lunch plan and made us feel absolutely beyond comfortable! We were celebrating our anniversary and all the little personal touches were appreciated. His customer service skills, attention to detail and anticipation of our needs is really something that wowed us and really impressed us while making us feel very comfortable. We are blown away by how pleased we are with the experience. I would rate it with more stars if that were an option 6 out or 5! Stellar! We can’t wait to be back and do this again!!!

We booked our tour with Viator and within 2 days had been contacted by Cardinal with a list and prices for wineries to visit. They offered up to 5 during the 8 hr trip. As we weren’t planning to buy wine we decided to just do a couple. We started with a small group tour and tasting of the beautiful Jarvis winery all done in an underground cave. In a group of 8 we had a very informative tour of this amazing winery then a tasting of 5 of their wines. In total we spent nearly 2 hrs there. Our driver Alex then took us to some restaurants in Sonomma where we had a lovely lunch then on to Buena Vista winery again beautiful old winery with lovely grounds. We hadn’t booked as this was recommended by some others on the Jarvis tour, Alex then drove us back to our hotel. Alex our driver was prompt, full of information pointing out sights and areas of interest , detouring to show us special sights such as The Palace of Fine arts. The limo was very comfortable. Vadim at the tour office was quick to reply to queries about timings and routes and helpful in settling the itinerary. All in all a very good way of seeing a bit of the countryside and learning about wine making.

Tour operator sent text to tell to us choose vineyards to visit from their form. We filled out and returned. Then, They texted us the night before departure claiming they emailed and called during week telling us to call all of the vineyards directly to make our own vineyard reservations as the $600 tour only included the ride not tastings or services. And without proof of reservations they informed us they would not be sending the van in the morning. This text gave us no time to make these reservations. They refused to discuss on phone - instead would only text. Said this is why they hate dealing with tourists. Needles to say they never sent a van and kept $100.

You didn’t want to read our emails or text messages we sent days ago . We have fully customized your itinerary and sent several text messages and follow up emails many days ago prior to your tour’s date . It is NOT our fault , it you’re irresponsible and can’t follow simple instructions and now we are finding out you are also a big Liar. We work with thousands of guests from around the world and make sure they are happy and still have amazing time at the wineries . Due to COVID19, All wineries require reservations- NO EXCEPTIONS. We customize itineraries and rigorously follow up with guests to make sure they are able to choose the tasting options they like .

My husband and i booked a private tour of Sonoma and were not disappointed. Lonny our driver picked us up at our hotel right on time. We took in a couple of sights on the way out of the city, and started our day with a Champagne toast.

Do not hesitate to book a tour with Cardinal the whole process was easy and clear.

San Francisco was one of the stops on our honeymoon and wanted to take a day trip to Napa. Booked this trip on Tripadvisor after seeing the reviews and comparing other companies. We - could - not - be happier! We had a wonderful time! Our driver for the day, Alex, was simply amazing and made our entire day extraordinary. Based on wineries that we wanted to hit, we contacted the company and adjusted the pick up time with no problem. Alex arrived at our hotel a few minutes early, the SUV was clean and off we went. Along the way, Alex provided us descriptions of landmarks, stories about different wineries, the winemaking process and many other insights into what we were passing. The drive flew by. After each winery, Alex was there waiting to take us to the next ones and then finally back to the hotel. He was an extremely safe driver and we had no issues whatsoever. Thank you Alex for making our honeymoon / day trip to Napa special.

The tour was absolutely perfect. The driver/guide Alex was at the hotel precisely in time. We hit all the 4 wineries scheduled. The tour had been previously organized in a series of emails exchanged with management. Alex also showed as a very good deli so that we could eat something in between a lot of wine tastings. He was very knowledgeable about the hole region. I highly recommend this service.
