there is art work all over downtown Napa. In fact there is 14. You have to walk all over the downtwon area to find different art by different artists. They are all made of some type of metal and they are large.

We had a fantastic time on our Napa walking tour! Richard was very knowledgeable and had great stories to tell along the way. It was the perfect way to spend the morning before heading out to wineries. Would absolutely recommend!

We love to visit places and learn more about them than what you read in tourist brochures. Our tour with Richard was exactly what we were looking for. Napa has a rich and fascinating past, and he helped us appreciate and understand how it became what it is today. He's a delightful and considerate man, extremely knowledgeable, and obviously a...

When you think to go to Napa, Please park your car nearby Tourism Information Center. And visit old shops and city center. There are many beautiful streets and small buildings. Air and streets are very clean, when your are walking in the Napa City, you will feel more younger than the day before yesterday.

We really enjoyed our tour with Mary! We were a small group of 4. Mary was very informative about Napa's history and restorations! We never felt rushed and loved the food and wines we sampled. Go hungry as there is alot on this "menu." The history of Napa added a layer of knowledge that you wouldn't get from just visiting... More

While Napa is certainly a wine and food destination, the history of the town and the valley is fascinating and helps bring the present alive. Knowing it will make your trip more meaningful and enjoyable. Richard is palpably passionate about that history and will present it to you in a relaxed, informative and fun way. This 90 minute walk takes... More

Mary was our tour guide and she was the sweetest. She took our group of 4 around downtown Napa. She took her time with us and even finished later than intended, we weren't rushed at all. All the things we tasted on our tour were not what I'd normally have, like olive oil on ice cream. I learned a ton... More

Richard, our guide was very knowledgable and passionate about the city of Napa. He was very interesting and pointed out history that was not part of the "normal tour." The walk was not far but super interesting. We learned the history of Napa, saw many architecturally interesting buildings/houses and learned places to eat and drink. I would recommend this tour...

We did the Napa Arts walk to see the sculptures. Unfortunately, there were some off limit areas due to the earthquake damage. However, I would recommend a trip to Napa and a walk around the town. There are lot of places to see, things to do, food to eat and wine and beer to sample.

My girlfriend and I decided to spend a weekend in Napa for our one year anniversary. We started our trip with the Napa Walking Tour and couldn't be more satisfied with the experience.
